As if they had America in mind, the Premier League have given the world Chelsea vs. Manchester United as the late Sunday game, just before the Super Bowl. Thanks, England! Frank Lampard is not fit for Chelsea, so they've moved Juan Mata into the center of a 4-2-3-1 setup. Manchester United will be playing Wayne Rooney just off of Danny Welbeck, with Ryan Giggs and Michael Carrick in the middle. Rafael da Silva and Johnny Evans get starts, as Chris Smalling has magically disappeared. Here are the lineups.
Manchester United starting lineup (4-4-1-1): David de Gea; Patrice Evra, Rio Ferdinand, Jonny Evans, Rafael da Silva; Ashley Young, Ryan Giggs, Michael Carrick, Antonio Valencia; Wayne Rooney; Danny Welbeck.
Kickoff is at 11:00 a.m. ET, 4:00 p.m. local time from Stamford Bridge. You can catch the game on FOX in the USA, Sportsnet World in Canada and Sky Sports 1 in the UK.
