Manchester United’s trip to Stamford Bridge on Sunday is an eagerly anticipated encounter for all, none more though than for Jose Mourinho.
The two-time former Chelsea boss will be licking his lips at the prospect of piling misery on his former side under new manager Antonio Conte.
Chelsea go into the game off the back of a 3-0 defeat to Roma, while United overcame Benfica 2-0 on the same night.
Stamford Bridge is no easy place to play though, especially with all the injuries that have piled up for Jose.
Midfielders Marouane Fellaini, Paul Pogba and Michael Carrick are all out of contention with Scott McTominay being in with a chance of potentially playing a big part in the game.
Meanwhile, long-term absentees Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo also remain out. Jesse Lingard is the latest injury concern, but his availability for the game is only a slight doubt.
Chelsea however find themselves in a much different place ahead of the game. N’Golo Kante has been a big miss for the Blues, but looks set to return to the side against United. Victor Moses won’t be so lucky though, and he is expected to be out until at least November 18.
The injury crisis at Manchester United is still well up and running, but it is fair to say that if they can overcome the challenge Chelsea provide, then things will get much easier once Pogba and Fellaini return in a couple of weeks.
