Manchester United Starting XI Prediction at Chelsea FC

Jose Mourinho has admitted he was surprised to be offered midfielder Nemanja Matic by Chelsea in last summer's transfer window.

"I was surprised when [Matic's] agent called me to say 'do you want him?' " Mourinho told Sky Sports.

"I was surprised. But he's an agent that I know well and normally he's very direct, very objective".

Since joining Manchester United, Matic has established himself as one of the most important players for the club and has played every single minute in the Premier League. "So when he told me "you can have him if you want", I said "of course I want".

Alongside the added rivalry that has arisen between Mourinho and Conte, Sunday's match has the potential for fireworks - though the former has sought to play down the clash.

Chelsea are trailing United by four points in the Premier League table heading into the showdown with their title rivals at Stamford Bridge.

His absence from Chelsea's midfield will be highlighted further should N'Golo Kante fail to recover from a hamstring injury. The fact that it's Mourinho's former club that he led to a league in two different stints as manager, only heightens the importance of this match.

'It means if I decide to put him in the team and start the game it is because he is ready.

"In Chelsea, [I selected] the youngest player ever to play in the Champions League, I think, in Dominic Solanke - again, with a manager who never gives a chance to young guys". Chelsea, the reigning league champions, are now below United in the table, but host United as favorites, and no doubt last year's meeting has a lot to do with that. "Sometimes I feel that I could or I should, but other times I cool down and I think that I shouldn't and I'm not going to do that".

"Maybe the first time I went back to Stamford Bridge in 2009 with Inter, then in 2016 last season after the second spell with Chelsea, ok".
