The two sides clash this weekend with both looking to cement their positions in the top four in order to guarantee qualification to next year's Champions League.

Chelsea travel to Manchester United for lunch-time drama in the Premier League on Sunday at Old Trafford.

Chelsea's focal point in attack, Alvaro Morata, has 10 league goals to his name this term, but none so far in 2018.

"After two tough defeats a few weeks ago the team responded with two wins". To try and finish the game with a good result.

"When I put 200 per cent into this club every day in Cobham, personally it's always a fantastic season for me".

The recent row culminated in the pair saying they felt "contempt" for each other.

"I don't want to speak about it", Mourinho said when asked about the tension with the Italian.

Mourinho has twice hauled him off for poor displays - at Tottenham and Newcastle - and discarded him for the game between, the visit of Huddersfield.

Manchester City's runaway campaign has left the rest of England's elite in their wake, including the Blues, who are 19 points behind the leaders and look certain to surrender their title. At home we've netted 29 goals and conceded five, while away Chelsea have scored 25 and conceded 13.

Chelsea are all set to travel to the Theatre of Dreams on Sunday and judging by their performance against Barcelona in the first leg of the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League, a bang on showing is expected from the Blues. Willian opened the scoring at Stamford Bridge before Lionel Messi equalised.

Liverpool and Man City are the only sides to take more points away from home than Chelsea this season.

Pogba's form was recently criticised by his manager Jose Mourinho, who also denied reports their relationship has become strained while defending the position in which he plays the midfielder.

Speaking at his press conference Mourinho said: "To play against Chelsea will mean less and less and less with the years".

"He (Mourinho) is my friend". Chris Smalling and Phil Jones have more than played their part when chosen as United's centre-back pairing in the league this season.

"The only moment where we felt relieved was when they had a couple of chances and David (De Gea) made two great saves", added Mourinho.

"A player when he is starting the game has a different kind of preparation for it".
