    FA Community Shield 2009: Preview and live discussion

    Venue: Wembley Stadium Date: Sunday 9 August Kick-off: 1500 BST

    Chelsea have two injury doubts ahead of Sunday's game with midfielder Yuri Zhirkov doubtful with a knee injury.

    Midfielder Joe Cole is still out with a knee ligament injury but Michael Ballack (toe) could be passed fit.

    Manchester United are without defenders Nemanja Vidic (calf), Wes Brown (thigh) and Gary Neville (groin).

    Manager Sir Alex Ferguson must decide whether to choose Ben Foster or Tomasz Kuszczak in goal with keeper Edwin Van der Sar out with a broken finger.

    Ferguson is refusing to be drawn on who will replace Van der Sar on Sunday, and for the remaining eight weeks the Dutchman is absent for.

    But in Kuszczak and Foster he knows he has two perfect understudies for the veteran Dutchman.

    "I will speak to both of them about the situation," said Ferguson.

    "We have a selection dilemma as to who plays in goal on Sunday. It is not an easy one for me."

    With Vidic, Brown and Neville all injured a lot also rests on the shoulders of centre-back Rio Ferdinand to remain fit.

    And despite the injury problems he encountered towards the end of last season, Ferdinand says he can be relied on to lead United's defence.

    "I am fine, there are no problems," said Ferdinand.

    "I have not missed any training sessions this pre-season, not missed any games and played a lot of minutes.

    "I am delighted and feeling good. Long may that continue this season.

    "The club have been really good. I've had rest and maintenance, a good pre-season tour and training. That's the most important thing. "

    For new Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti the game will be the first time he has managed a side at Wembley.

    Ancelotti took over as Chelsea manager in the summer having previously spent eight years as boss of AC Milan.

    And the Italian is relishing the opportunity of facing the Premier League champions in English football's traditional curtain raiser.

    "I think we are ready to start this season against Manchester United on Sunday," said Ancelotti.

    "It will be a very difficult match but we are excited and very happy to play at Wembley.

    "It will be the first time for me to be at Wembley. It is not a friendly game, it is very important for us. We play against a great team. They were in the final of the Champions League last season.

    "We have respect for this team but we want to win and play well. We want to put our quality on the pitch. It will be an interesting match."

    With Cole's injury long-term, Zhirkov is likely to be the only absentee on Sunday from Ancelotti's pre-season squad.

    "Zhirkov is the only player with a problem," said Ancelotti.

    "He has a knee injury. He didn't train in the last few days and I don't know if he can play Sunday. He is the only one. Maybe we have to wait two days and then we will see if it is possible for him to play."

    Chelsea: Cech, Hilario, Turnbull, Belletti, Alex, Terry, Carvalho, Mancienne, Bosingwa, A Cole, Ballack, Sturridge, Mikel, Deco, Lampard, Anelka, Drogba, Ivanovic, Kalou, Ferreira, Malouda.

    Man Utd: Foster, Kuszczak, O'Shea, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra, Valencia, Fletcher, Carrick, Scholes, Anderson, Gibson, Nani, Giggs, Rooney, Owen, Berbatov, Macheda, Tosic, Fabio, Cleverley, De Laet.

    Well there is one important aspect for you in the game to be honest, who is going to play, Kuszczak or Foster...

    I think you owe it to Kuszczak to give him a few games because Fosters time will obviously come when van der Sar hangs up his gloves.

    Well then you might as well sell Kuszczak now while he still has time to actually have a career... you know?

    Normally I wouldn't care, but both me and a Chelsea supporter will be stuck in work during the match, so any excuse to rib him will be taken.

    For anyone not watching, it's 1-0 to United.

    Fletcher with the cross for Nani to finish from about 25 yards.

    Berbatov and Ivonvic on Yellows.

    Foster is in for United.

    Carvalho makes it 1-1 a few minutes ago. Foster got more of Drogba than the ball.

    Nani has gone off injured. His collarbone and/or shoulder after a tackle from Terry.

    Lampard then makes it 2-1 on the counter attack.

    EDIT: From the BBC website: The United players are furious, claiming Evra has a head injury. He doesn't though. Unless his head is located in his chest.

    Penalties at the United end. Never understood why each team cant take in front of their own fans.

    1-0 Lampard Scores
    1-0 Giggs Misses
    2-0 Ballack Scores
    2-1 Carrick Scores
    3-1 Drogba Scores
    3-1 Evra Misses a Woeful Penalty
    4-1 Kalou Scores to win it for Chelsea.

    How? You have 2 goals, 4 referee's, 2 keepers and 20 players (Usually). Split it into two and it gives each team the same advantage.

    Nanis goal was pretty pimp, hopefully he doesn't miss to much time. But from the sounds of it he'll be back asap.

    I had to work and then slept through this but however, WTF at Evra

    Then, now, forever.
