Antonio Conte regrets letting go of this star last summer

Antonio Conte regrets letting go of this star last summer”

Speaking to the media about Chelsea, Mourinho played down any sentimental feelings he has for the club he led to three Premier League titles over two spells in charge. They show me in that moment they feel me as a friend that did his best for the club and always respects the club. He now seems to be completely out of favour with Mourinho, a problem made worse by the fact Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind all remain sidelined through injury.

In the build-up to our visit to Old Trafford this Sunday, Conte complimented the 29-year-old after his efforts in our title-winning campaign, as The Daily Mail reports.

"I think the next few weeks at Old Trafford will be incredible", he told MUTV. "When I play at Stamford Bridge some reactions from the fans are just reactions".

Mourinho has lost three of the four games he's played against Chelsea since he became United's manager and in the first defeat, a 4-0 hammering in the league in October 2016, he reacted angrily to overzealous celebrations from Conte on the sidelines.

Whereas, Manchester United had a questionable performance against Sevilla. Second-placed United are now three points and two places above the Blues and Conte acknowledges that there is fierce competition to qualify for Europe.

United have conceded just five goals in 13 Premier League home games this season.

Chelsea manager Conte and Manchester United manager Mourinho have clashed numerous times during the last two years as part of an ongoing feud.

Lukaku has failed to score in all 17 Premier League appearances involving Chelsea: 10 for the Blues and seven against them.

There it is, stage two in Mourinho's plan to dismantle United's squad.

Both sides have similar form coming into this match having won 33 and 34 points respectively since last November and both achieving a defensive-based draw against Spanish opposition in their mid-week Champions League encounters.

"About this player I can talk only really well because he played with us last season", he told the assembled press ahead of Sunday's trip to Old Trafford.

Sports looks at the best of Mourinho and Conte's war of words.

On one hand, Chelsea managed a fine draw against FC Barcelona in Europe whereas, on the other hand, Manchester United scraped through with a goalless draw against Sevilla in Spain.

Probability of away win: 24%.
