Jose Mourinho’s will take his team to Stamford Bridge to face Antonio Conte led Chelsea. Mourinho will travel to Stamford Bridge for the first time after his sacking and he’ll be looking forward to making the most of it.
In the past decade, the rivalry between both the Premier League clubs has grown to make the Sunday’s clash a grand occasion. Manchester United and Chelsea have been headlocked in the title challenges since 2004.
Manchester United after their win over Fenerbahce and a formidable performance against a fiery Liverpool side to earn a point away from home has certainly put them in the great mood ahead of Sunday’s clash. Conte’s men also have enjoyed a decent spell in past two gameweeks after a change in their formation and will also be fresh and prepared to take on the Red Devils.
Both clubs have superabundance of talent and with some important players getting their form back, we look at the 5 key players who’ll impact the game most according to us.
1. Diego Costa
League’s highest goalscorer and a total nuisance for any opposition. The Brazilian is one of those whom nobody wants to face as an opposition. He’s one of the most prolific strikers in the world football currently and has shown that this season. Mourinho bought him at Chelsea and knows exactly what he’s capable of, so the Portugese needs to come up with a plan that could nullify him and also needs to make his players understand not to lose their calm and indulge in any of his on field nuisance.
