Premier League 3 thoughts: Jose Mourinho against the world

Premier League 3 thoughts: Jose Mourinho against the world

But his relationship with the Blues turned sour as they slumped to nine defeats in the first 16 games of their title defence - leading to owner Roman Abramovich parting company with Mourinho just seven months after winning the league.

"Honestly, if I wanted to risk him I could do this against Bournemouth or Roma, instead I waited, I found myself a lot of patience to find best way for N'Golo".

Shaw was signed by Manchester United after he snubbed a move to Chelsea - a club he is a massive fan of.

Pogba has been hailed as the key instrument in his partnership with Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku, who has not scored in his last six outings. It's a big match because of the opponents, not because it's a team where I was the manager.

For all the calls for patience, however, Chelsea could do with some instant regeneration against United. Last season, he failed to score both home and away against Conte's charges, as Everton lost 3-0 and 5-0.

After the way Chelsea capitulated on Wednesday night and with Kante doubtful, I'm torn between a draw and a United win for this one.

City are unbeaten in the all competitions this season and their fine start to this campaign has seen them sit on top of the league and the Champions League table.

While Jose Mourinho's mind will be well and truly focused on Sunday's reunion with his former club Chelsea, the Manchester United boss still has time to celebrate his daughter's birthday. "We've made a good start but there's a long race to go". I have respect for the job.

Conte is desperate to see Chelsea regain their solidity. He doesn't try to get people to be interested in his players to improve their situation at their club.

"To solve these problems is not simple".

Sunday though, brings a different kind of visit to London, and undoubtedly a much more professional one.

The judge will decide whether or not the case will proceed to trial.

And on the Portuguese coach's first trip to Stamford Bridge with United last year, he got involved with Conte on the touchline and claimed the Italian "humiliated" him with his celebrations in Chelsea's 4-0 victory. "You have to respect the job of the other coach". Mourinho is probably right, but when United has built its global reputation through attacking, expansive football, you can understand why they are being held to such a high standard.
