Chelsea Football Club

For the Blues, we'll be experimenting with a 4-3-3 formation with Cech being the man in the goal.

As for the center-back positions, Terry and Carvalho should occupy them with Ivanovic and Ashley Cole playing from the wings.

Though Ngolo Kante has established himself as a Chelsea legend, we'll be settling with Makelele in the defensive-midfield spot while Eden Hazard and Frank Lampard occupy the other two positions up front.

On the right and left wings, we'll be putting the duo of Zola and Robben while Didier Drogba undoubtedly occupies the center-forward spot.

Manchester United

For the Red Devils, we'll be experimenting with the 4-4-2 formation.

Though Edwin Van Der Sar is also a club legend, will be picking Peter Schmeichel over him.

As for the backline, Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic, who were central defensive partners during their playing days, should keep their places while Gary Neville and Denis Irwin occupy the full-back spots.

As for the double-pivot positions, the duo of Roy Keane and Paul Scholes should take up these positions while Cristiano Ronaldo and Ryan Giggs play on the right and left-wing respectively.
