The first huge game of the season is nearly upon us! Chelsea take on Manchester United on Monday night in a game that marks the return of Jose Mourinho to Old Trafford – a ground that arguably ignited his career when his Porto team shocked Sir Alex Ferguson’s boys in 2004.
We may be in store for another dose of Mourinho sliding in his suit and ruining it if Chelsea can get a positive result in Lancashire. There is already momentum building in West London with six points from a possible six so far this season. If anything the pressure is on David Moyes to prove he is a big time manager with a victory. Mourinho will argue that he has nothing to prove. In fairness, he is probably right. His side have taken maximum points from their first two games and arrive top of the table, albeit at an embryonic stage of the season.
Chelsea and Man Utd have played out some classic games over the years and this one looks sets to be no different. As the game time approaches here are five things we can expect from the game on Monday night.
