Antonio Conte states his prediction for Chelsea v Man Utd

I didn't talk to my players about José Mourinho.

However there will be no love lost between him and Nigeria worldwide Moses, who was frozen out by Mourinho after being sent on loan to Liverpool in 2013, when the Portuguese returned to Chelsea. "Now I have lost already a few matches at the Bridge, last season I lost two or three matches in the Bridge so I can not use the same words because now I lost there".

The Red Devils' only Premier League win at Stamford Bridge since 2002 came in October 2012.

The Italian, who took over in July after Guus Hiddink had stepped in when Mourinho was sacked last term, added that the Manchester United manager, who guided Chelsea to three league titles, merited his place in the club's folklore.

"That is something I don't forget and that is something I will always be grateful to them for because, with me, they have always behaved in a fantastic way".

Much will be said and written in the next couple of days about Mourinho's relationship with Chelsea, once the most overt of English football's love affairs. Then, when something like last season happens, a bad season ...

Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham need for depth for title challenge
Tottenham missed the chance to regain top spot in the Premier League after being held to a 0-0 drawn by Bournemouth on Saturday. Nearly 30,000 people have seen a clip of the controversial play since it was uploaded this afternoon.

Election officials, experts rebuff 'rigged' claim
Oh, and probably people aghast at a certain someone bragging about sexual assault and dismissing it as "locker room talk". GOP legislatures cite voter fraud , including those who impersonate dead people on voter registration lists.

While that price certainly looks tempting for a player that has struck first three times so far this campaign, anytime odds of 5/4 (2.25) definitely appear too good to pass up given his current form.

Conte, who said it would be "useless" to try to keep Diego Costa calmer on the pitch after the striker's fit of pique against Leicester, anticipates a tight, tactical contest on Sunday which could mirror United's goalless draw at Liverpool on Monday.

Mourinho's men set up to stifle and frustrate Liverpool throughout at Anfield, a display criticised by fans and pundits.

"To win is important but it's important also to play good football, to play with good intensity, to show always the will to win, the passion".

Conte, whose side are two points above United in fifth place, has said he has "great respect" for Mourinho and expressed hope the Portuguese will receive a "good reception". It's a blessing for me that he enjoys the way I play and appreciates the effort I put in.

"In these games, it's a lot to do with one-v-ones and, if you get the better of your opponent, maybe you get the better of the game; that could be the situation on Sunday, so I think we have to work hard individually and collectively to get a result". Not to play for a draw.
