Sarri: "Manchester United are the best in the Premier League"

Sarri:

"For me, it is another game", said Mourinho. "I don't think so", Mourinho told a news conference on Friday. Would I celebrate like insane my team's goal or victory at Stamford Bridge?

Chelsea welcome United to Stamford Bridge on Saturday as Premier League action returns following the global break, and Sarri believes his side face a daunting task. I think I'd try to control myself and respect the stadium and the supporters that were my supporters and what was my stadium for many years. Apart from that it is another match for me.

A match I want to do well in for my players, my team and my supporters. "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".

Mourinho heads back to west London looking for a second successive victory after his side's dramatic 3-2 win over Newcastle last time out, a result that eased some of the pressure that had been mounting on the 55-year-old following a four-game winless run as well as reports of a bust-up with midfielder Paul Pogba.

Luke Shaw, Nemanja Matic and Marouane Fellaini were all ruled out of global duty with their countries and the United manager has revealed a number of others have returned to Carrington with problems.

Joking aside, it seems that James himself is in great spirits as he heads into his regular season debut with the Lakers next week. Walton envisions an up-tempo, free-flowing offense mixing concepts from Golden State and Boston.

British media reported that United's bus had been held up in traffic on the way to Old Trafford and arrived 45 minutes before kickoff of the Group H match, which was put back by five minutes.

"Then we came back and we were waiting for the boys to come back from their national teams". "At the moment City is better as a team, but player-by-player they [United] are very strong".

Mourinho is also dealing with injury problems ahead of the trip to Stamford Bridge with Alexis Sanchez and Marouane Fellaini both doubts, although Nemanja Matic and Luke Shaw have both travelled after missing global duty.

United go into the game in eighth place in the table and are already seven points adrift of Chelsea, who are joint-top.
