Paul Pogba and Antonio Conte celebrate whilst at Juventus

TEAM NEWS

Chelsea insist John Terry has fully recovered from an ankle injury but it remains to be seen whether he starts, having begun on the bench last weekend.

Willian and Oscar have returned to training after compassionate leave but Cesc Fabregas and Branislav Ivanovic are again out with muscle injuries.

Manchester United will assess Chris Smalling, who was forced off against Fenerbahce with a muscle problem.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has recovered from a thigh problem and may be available.

MOTD COMMENTATOR’S NOTES

Steve Wilson: “In 2004, Chelsea versus Manchester United was Jose Mourinho’s first ever game in English football.

“In 2016 it may have been the first date which Mourinho scribbled into his diary when the new fixture list was unveiled.

“Mourinho in west London: it was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Two spells, seven major trophies, two sackings.

“There were players who loved him, and players who fell out of love with him. After the ugly ending 10 months ago, Chelsea’s fans booed those who they felt had betrayed him – and many of those players are still at the club.

“Beating Mourinho may be the best way, perhaps the only way, for Antonio Conte to help those fans move on.”

WHAT THE MANAGERS SAY

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte: “I want to see progress on Sunday compared with the Liverpool and Arsenal games and I am confident I will.

“It will be a tactical game on Sunday but the fans have a big part to play and can be an advantage.

“I have great respect for [Jose] Mourinho. He deserves a good reception. He was an important man for Chelsea and wrote part of the club’s story.”

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho: “I don’t have to analyse [Chelsea’s] start to the season but, when you look at the table and you see where they are, in the middle positions, it cannot be bad.

“I knew that working in England, staying in the Premier League, I would, sooner or later, have to play against Chelsea and I would have to go to Stamford Bridge. The computer has decided that I have to go now, so we go.”

LAWRO’S PREDICTION

Jose Mourinho did a job on Liverpool on Monday – when I looked at his team selection at Anfield I wasn’t convinced, but it worked.

I would expect Mourinho to nullify Chelsea’s attacking threat too, which is why I am going for another draw here – I just don’t think enough of the Blues’ forward players are performing well enough to break United down.

Prediction: 1-1
