Ashley Cole or Wayne Rooney? Who is more fortunate to be playing in the Chelsea - Manchester United match

Duo could have missed out after controversial incidents
Manchester United travel to Chelsea on Tuesday night in a match that could have big implications in the title race.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s side are four points clear of second-placed Arsenal in the table, while Chelsea, who sit 15 points behind the leaders, could hinder the Red Devils’ chances of extending their lead at the top with a win at Stamford Bridge.

But two players who are set to feature in the match could have missed out - and for very different reasons.

Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed Ashley Cole, after accidentally shooting a 21-year-old on a work placement at the club with an air rifle, will play, while also denying that there was any chance of the left-back being sacked over the incident, which is being investigated by police.

Wayne Rooney is also available for the clash after escaping FA punishment for an elbow on Wigan Athletic’s James McCarthy at the weekend, despite reports he could have been handed a ban of up to four matches.
