first_img 1 1 Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal became a figure of fun on Monday evening as he claimed that his side could still catch runaway league leaders Chelsea, but he will have the perfect opportunity to justify that assertion on Sunday afternoon when the two heavyweights square off at Old Trafford.United are currently 10 points behind their London counterparts – who are yet to taste defeat in the Premier League – and while the Red Devils will still be without captain Wayne Rooney, who serves the final match of his suspension, Van Gaal looks likely to receive a handful of boosts that could prove the difference maker for the fallen giants.The biggest news understandably surrounds club-record signing Angel di Maria, who worryingly limped off in Monday’s draw with West Brom. The Argentine seemed to wince on the bench, as he sat with an ice-pack strapped to his groin, but after being spotted at United’s Carrington base on Wednesday to undergo additional treatment, the club are quietly confident that he will be fit in time for Sunday’s showdown.Another huge boost comes in the shape of Colombian hitman Radamel Falcao, who remained on the bench for the 2-2 draw due to the amount of travelling he had done during the international break, but according to latest reports he too is expected to be ready to go on Sunday.While defence continues to be an area of consternation for boss Louis van Gaal, his ranks look set to receive further reinforcements, with Jonny Evans and youngster Paddy McNair to undergo fitness tests that could see them follow the returns of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling last weekend.And finally, something of a minor boost, Monday’s goal hero Marouane Fellaini insists he is fully fit and raring to help fire United back into the Premier League’s upper-echelons after enduring his own difficult start to life at Old Trafford following his switch from Everton in the summer of 2013.Below is how Man United could line-up against Chelsea on Sunday: Man United fans, how do you think you’ll line-up on Sunday?
