Surprisingly, Alex Ferguson has chosen the same team that started this weekend against Wigan, the first time United has been unchanged in 165 games. That means Javier Hernández, coming off two Saturday goals, gets the call ahead of Dimitar Berbatov for today's Premier League match with Chelsea. Wayne Rooney joins up, as does Nani, who may be deployed left, if Ferguson plays as he did this weekend. Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher are all in the starting XI, with Fletcher possibly set to shade right.
At the back, John O'Shea gets the nod over Rafael da Silva, though that was expected. He'll be next to Chris Smalling, started for the injured Rio Ferdinand. Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra start at the left side of defense, in front of Edwin van der Sar.
Manchester United, Starting XI: van der Sar - O'Shea, Smalling, Vidic, Evra - Fletcher, Carrick, Scholes, Nani - Rooney, Hernández
Bench: Berbatov, Giggs, Gibson, Rafael da Silva, Fabio da Silva, Kusczcak
