Manchester United and Chelsea lock horns today in the Premier League, with all the talk focusing on Jose Mourinho.

Stamford Bridge will play host to one of the most anticipated games so far this season. The Pensioners have recovered well from a heavy defeat to Arsenal, convincingly beating Hull and Leicester to build a bit of momentum. If they are to make it three wins in a row, they will be back amongst the protagonists in the title race.

Meanwhile, this is a crucial tie for the Red Devils. They have not won a Premier League game in 29 days, and are quickly losing pace on the losers. If they leave London with three points, all will be good again.

However, the absence of Wayne Rooney has been drawing headlines, and the pressure is well and truly on the side to deliver.

Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard start for United.
