Both players were booked following the incident which you can see a video of below.

” 1 Manchester United and Chelsea are likely to field very different teams tonight, so talkSPORT look at some of the most promising youngsters ahead of the clash Manchester United’s last meeting with Chelsea looks likely to be remembered for all the wrong reasons, but the rematch in the Capital One Cup has the potential to be a much more positive affair, with the likelihood of the clubs fielding some of their promising youngsters. With a rare chance to see these players in first team action, talkSPORT look at three wonderkids we hope to watch on both sides… CHELSEA Name: Oriol Romeu Age: 21 Position: Defensive midfielder Former Barcelona man Oriol Romeu got off to a promising start at Chelsea under Andre Villas-Boas, rarely putting a foot wrong when given an opportunity and growing in confidence as his minutes increased.

Under Roberto Di Matteo its been a different story for the Catalan, and the midfielder has struggled to have any kind of impact in the team, being behind John Obi Mikel in the pecking order. Tonight is likely to be a rare opportunity for him to shine, so Romeu will need to seize it with both hands if is to force his way into Di Matteo’s thinking for Premier and Champions League starts.

The midfielder’s range of passing and comfort in possession mean he’s arguably a better candidate than Mikel for the defensive role in Chelsea’s new, more attacking side, but proving that to his boss on the pitch will be essential.1xbet türkiye Video Name: Lucas Piazon Age: 18 Position: Forward Chelsea’s Brazilian contingent extends beyond Ramires and David Luiz, but tricky forward Lucas Piazon had to wait a year for his first team chance with the Blues after his arrival in summer 2011.

Piazon made a case for senior action with a goal against PSG during Chelsea’s summer tour and, after being included in their Champions League squad for this season, it seems Di Matteo is ready to give him opportunities when possible. His competitive debut came in Chelsea’s Capital One Cup hammering of Wolves, where he grabbed an assist in the Blues’ win. Manchester United won’t be the easiest opponent for the Brazilian, but if he comes off the bench he could be a brilliant impact sub.

Video Name: Nathan Ake Age: 17 Position: Defender Squint your eyes and Nathan Ake looks reminiscent to compatriot and former Chelsea man Ruud Gullit, though the defender will have his work cut out if he hopes to get anywhere near the former Ballon d’Or winner. Ake arrived at Chelsea from Feyenoord in 2011 with bags of promise and the versatile defender made the most of his first season at the club, playing plenty of matches with the reserves despite his age.

Ake loves striding out from the back with the ball, stepping up into midfield to increase the numbers in the middle of the park and can also play a decent probing pass from defence into opposition territory. Whether he’s given a chance to impress or not depends on how keen Roberto Di Matteo is to rest his regular centre-backs ahead of their league game with Swansea, but if he takes to the pitch, the Dutchman is one to watch.

Video Manchester United Name: Michael Keane Age: 19 Playing position: Defender United youth defender Michael Keane has big expectations on his shoulders already, after making his debut for their senior side in the League Cup last year. The twin of United striker Will, Michael was a pivotal player in the Red Devils’ 2011 FA Youth Cup-winning team, and won the Reserve Player of the Year award following his brilliant displays for United’s second string.

Keane performed well against a strong Newcastle side in the previous round of this year’s competition and could be rewarded with a further appearance against Chelsea. Keane isn’t shy of a tackle and, like his brother, is relaxed in possession. Also capable of playing at left-back, Keane is better suited to a role in the centre of defence.

Video Name: Marrick Vermijl Age: 20 Playing position: Full-back Belgian full-back Marrick Vermijl made his first team debut against Newcastle in this year’s Capital One Cup and his blistering pace makes him a danger when running from deep. Vermijl also has an eye for goal, meaning he can take advantage of his ability to get involved in the final third, so Chelsea will need to be vigilant to pay attention to his threat, should he play.

The Blues would certainly test his defensive capabilities, however, so if he’ll need to be vigilant at the back, first and foremost. Video Name: Joshua King Age: 20 Playing position: Striker Already a full Norwegian international, powerful striker Josh King may not start against Chelsea, but is likely to feature from the bench at a minimum.

Often compared to a young John Carew, King’s combination of pace, power and finishing could be a test for Chelsea if the Blues decide to field some inexperienced defenders. It’s thought that the youngster may have been considering his options ahead of this season, but with Sir Alex Ferguson throwing his weight behind the forward following a brilliant display against Norway while on international duty, he could have one last chance to prove his worth and break into the first team in the cup competition.

King certainly has the assets to be a quality striker and his good work with Norway proves he can play at first team level, but whether that’s at United’s standard remains to be seen. Video Which of these youngsters would you like to see given a chance when Chelsea face Man United? Comment below and have your say.

Ahaha — Gus Skinner (@GusSkinner) April 13, 2019 /**/ /**/ As for what happened in the game, well Burnley ran out 2-0 winners thanks to a brace from Barnes’ strike partner Chris Wood, moving them eleven points clear of the relegation zone. 18th-placed Cardiff are still in deep trouble following the defeat and are five points adrift of safety and know they must beat 17th-placed Brighton on Tuesday night at the Amex Stadium to realistically have a chance of staying up.
