"I'm 100 per cent Manchester United, there's no space for anything else but respect for the stadium and people who were my friends".

Jose Mourinho will, of course, be back at Stamford Bridge but considering United's struggles and Chelsea's fluency this season, the Portuguese will be a nervous manager during the game.

"An accumulation of factors, an important contract for the club to keep him and important for him because is what he wants and when he gets a new contract with Manchester United I think was good news for us". As many as eight first-team stars are doubtful or confirmed absentees for the match against Chelsea. We thought Chelsea had not been watching him for the previous 12 months.

Alonso is set to make up an unchanged back four for Sarri. Fred and Paul Pogba should both start in a midfield three, with the third spot likely to be a toss-up between Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera.

The Blues ended a run of two draws in the league with a commanding win over Southampton last time out and will be in confident mood ahead of their clash against United.

Marcus Rashford's misses against Newcastle could cost him his place in the starting eleven.

Time for his Manchester United career to take flight?

Sanchez was being touted to join United or rivals Manchester City and decided on United.

The deal represents an impressive recovery for the England global who has battled through a loss of form and fitness, as well as a horrendous double leg break, and repeated public criticism from Mourinho in his time at Old Trafford.

This could end up being one of those dull-but-entertaining affairs. So indifferent has United's form been in 2018-19 there had even been speculation José Mourinho could lose his job at Old Trafford, but Sarri is convinced this weekend's opponents are the best in the division.

Expect chances to be far and few at Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United are the strongest team in the Premier League, looking at their squad on a player-by-player basis, according to Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri.
