Fa Community Shield
August 8, 2010 by USA Post
Fa Community Shield, Today we see an abiding Premiership hot between the two best teams in the league. The shield of the community has always been a great show for the fans and neutral, with just a week remaining before the new Premier League season begins. Chelsea won this fixture last year with a 4-1-penalty shootout victory after a thrilling 2-2 draw in normal time. Men of Sir Alex Ferguson is looking for revenge this time as Chelsea won their first league and cup every time with United taking only the Carling Cup last season.
So from this match we can expect a very competitive battle because of the rivalry between the two sides. I do not want to lose this one as the hand of the other a psychological advantage going into the new season. Chelsea coach Carlo Ancelotti has already announced his starting line up ahead of the game and shows that not taking this one lightly. Among the missing are goalkeeper Petr Cech and defenders Alex and Jose Bosingwa, with golden boot winner Didier Drogba on the bench after recovering from injury. Ancelotti has named a strong lineup with the return of the injury victim Michael Essien, Hilario in goal and is rumored to want left-back Ashley Cole away.
Manchester United have not announced yet, but his team Sir Alex has confirmed that Wayne Rooney and Michael Owen will play a half each. Definitely out of the game are Rio Ferdinand, Owen Hargreaves and Gabriel Obertan with questions about Da Silva Twins and Michael Carrick. It is likely that most field United also possible alignment with the new boy Javier Hernandez expected to play a role.
In all meetings between the two sides last season, Chelsea won at all, so it is fair to say they are slight favorites for the game after a sloppy preseason. United also had their moments in the friendlies, but ended with a 7-1 victory over the powerful Airtricity League Select XI in Dublin on Wednesday. There will be no friendly game as it blows the whistle on the inside of Wembley 15:00 today, will be a tough battle until the final whistle. And lest you do end in a draw, no messing around with extra time to go directly to a shootout! You can watch the game live on Sky Sports 1 and highlights tonight on ITV at 22:15.
