Where Man Utd’s squad are now – eight years on from last league win at Chelsea

Manchester United are looking to secure their first league win away at Chelsea in eight years when they visit Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

The Red Devils have not claimed victory in west London since their dramatic 3-2 triumph over Roberto Di Matteo’s Blues in October 2012, in a game that saw Branislav Ivanovic and Fernando Torres sent off for the hosts.

David Luiz’s own goal and a Robin van Persie strike gave United an early 2-0 lead, only for Juan Mata and Ramires to draw Chelsea level.

But after Ivanovic and Torres both saw red, substitute Javier Hernandez came off the bench and struck a later winner for Sir Alex Ferguson’s men.

Ahead of Monday’s crucial clash, Starsport have taken a look at what each member of United’s last victorious side at the Bridge are up to these days.

The only man remaining at Old Trafford since that 3-2 win is De Gea, who has developed into one of the best goalkeepers on the planet in the eight years that have followed.

Nevertheless, the Spaniard’s form has dipped over the last few seasons, with a number of uncharacteristic errors costing United dearly.

RB: Rafael

Brazilian right-back Rafael enjoyed his best season at Old Trafford in 2012/13, making 28 league appearances in total and popping up with three goals.

He would then make another 19 the following year, before falling down the pecking order under Louis van Gaal in 2014/15.

The Dutchman decided to let Rafael join Lyon in 2015, where he still plies his trade today.
