Chelsea plan fancy dress horror show to 'scare Manchester United players'
Chelsea will be hoping to scare the life out of Manchester United when the two sides meet in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday, with the Blues encouraging fans to turn up in frightening fancy dress.
It will be the second time in a week United face Chelsea, with the Red Devils showing off their tricks and treats in a 3-2 win at Stamford Bridge on Sunday in the Premier League.
However, Blues boss Roberto Di Matteo is desperate for some revenge, and the club are hoping to use a Halloween twist to get an advantage.
Fans are being urged to wear their scariest fancy dress costumes, in a bid to terrify the United players and help Chelsea secure an easy win.
'Wednesday night sees Chelsea take on Manchester United in the League Cup and it's sure to be a brilliant match, but it also happens to be Halloween – the spookiest night of the year!!,' a statement on the Chelsea website read.
'We want all bridgekids who have tickets for the game to come along early and wear their best Halloween outfits so that we can help scare the United players and help the Blues get a win.'
'Get yourself dressed up – it's going to be FREAKY!'
With a section of scarily dressed fans behind the goal, it's likely to be a tough night for United's 'goulkeeper' David De Gea.
....I just can't anymore. Seriously just when I think football can't get anymore cringey with cheerleaders, goal music and the like..they go and do this. FFS.
