The grasses at Old Trafford will be in for a rude awakening on Sunday evening when Manchester United host Chelsea, in what will be the third meeting between the two teams this season.
United boss Jose Mourinho admitted that it’ll be difficult for him to play his best team due to Europa League commitment, while implying that Chelsea have it easy.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, however, said that he’d talk about that after the game, on the condition that Chelsea get a good result at Old Trafford.
He said: “I don’t know if this is the right time, I can tell you this after the game, after a good result. In this part of the season it’s very difficult to understand if there is a right moment to play against one team or against another team.
“But I am sure they want to play a very good game at home and try to beat us, and I know the three points are very important for us and for United.”
