Pogba: We Want To Beat Chelsea

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said Marcus Rashford had played "fantastically well" after the striker gave Chelsea's defence a torrid time in a 2-0 win at Old Trafford.

Backup goalkeeper Asmir Begovic is expected to make his first Premier League appearance this season.

Manchester United welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon in an important game at the top of the Premier League table.

Facing his former club, Mourinho rested top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic and charged Ander Herrera and Matteo Darmian with the task of man-marking Chelsea dangermen Eden Hazard and Pedro.

"He gets the ball and plays simple", he added. At just 21-years-old, is time really up for Luke Shaw at Old Trafford?

Mourinho's first return to Stamford Bridge since he was sacked at the end of 2015 saw United thrashed 4-0 in October - its heaviest league defeat since 2011. Hazard barely had a meaningful touch.

Chelsea might be starting to wobble.

"But when we are losing, the world's against you".

Still, the pressure is certainly on the leaders now.

When asked about Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Conte simply said that he's in great form. "They showed more desire, more ambition, more motivation", said Conte.

"[To compare the two teams] first of all, some guys are fresh, some guys are exhausted and that's very important".

With a game in hand. The Manchester rivals meet at City's Etihad Stadium on April 27.

United have not lost in the league since a 4-0 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in October, winning 11 games and picking up 10 draws.

He drove into the box and was tackled by Kurt Zouma, who ended up stabbing the ball straight to Herrera.

Antonio Conte will have a fully fit squad at his disposal.

"They have not been playing in Europe this season and they went out from the League Cup early". It's United's longest ever winless streak against a single opponent in the league.

Unbeatable they are certainly not, but Chelsea are at the top of the division for a reason and know that three more points at the Theatre of Dreams today and the first letter of their name can surely be carved into the top-flight crown.

Much of the pre-match buildup focused on Liverpool's issues in coping with set-pieces - a real strength of West Bromwich under Tony Pulis.
