Chelsea, courtesy of a 4-0 home win for Tottenham against Bournemouth, have seen their lead at the top of the Premier League cut to four points.

The trip to take on Manchester United, and a certain Jose Mourinho, on Easter Sunday, has suddenly become even more important, if the title race isn`t to become one that involves ourselves and Spurs.

Ahead of the game we have compiled some early team news.

Starting with our hosts Manchester United:

Having missed the games away to Sunderland (Premier League) and Anderlecht (Europa League), David de Gea is expected to return to the Manchester United starting eleven after recovering from a hip injury.

Jose Mourinho could also have the option of selecting either, or both, of Ashley Young or Wayne Rooney who have both returned to training.

The former Chelsea favourite, Juan Mata, is side-lined for the remainder of the season after undergoing a groin operation.

Also out injured are the centre-back pairing of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, both of whom will not play again this month.

Continuing with Chelsea:

We`re pleased to report that Antonio Conte has a fully-fit squad to select from.

However, the Italian has to decide whether Cesc Fabregas or Willian should be included in the starting eleven.
