Jose Mourinho is known for making enemies in football, but his feuds are almost always calculated. He only ever goes up against a direct rival in the media, the man he views as the biggest threat at that time. It has been Pep Guardiola famously, Arsene Wenger and Rafa Benitez too. Right now, his main target is the man he will come face to face with at Old Trafford on Sunday, Chelsea’s Antonio Conte.

The Italian has been frustrated with various things this season, not least Mourinho. It is generally felt that he will leave Stamford Bridge in the summer, but not before he has led the Blues to more success. These two sides are arguably in the driving seat to finish in second behind Manchester City. Mourinho still has fond memories of his days at Chelsea, but he will want a repeat of the home win over his former club last season this weekend and we believe that will happen.

Form

Neither of these sides are performing consistently well as it stands, with the Red Devils still reeling from their last league outing at Newcastle, which they lost 1-0. They progressed in the FA Cup by beating Huddersfield and faced Sevilla in the Champions League on Wednesday, and are still in the driving seat for second place.

BETFRED HAVE YOU COVERED

Chelsea, similarly to United, progressed in the FA Cup and played in the Champions League this week while still trying to put poor results behind them. Recent losses at home to Bournemouth and away at Watford have piled the pressure on Conte.

Team News

Alexis Sanchez, our goalscoring tip, and should start for the hosts, while Chelsea have a clean bill of health.
