Chelsea vs Manchester United: Prediction, live coverage, team news, line ups, head to head, and betting odds – Premier League preview
Chelsea welcome back former manager Jose Mourinho to Stamford Bridge on Sunday for the first time since he was dismissed by the club in December.
Mourinho's second spell in charge of the club ended following their worst start to a season in the Premier League era, but he returns following his appointment by Manchester United in the summer.
Antonio Conte was charged with picking up the pieces at Stamford Bridge after a turbulent campaign and his first Premier League clash with Mourinho this weekend will certainly be an intriguing affair.
Not only will it mark The United manager's first game back at the Blues, but it could also give Chelsea the chance to move into the top four.
But what else do fans need to know about the big game on Sunday?
DATE, TIME AND VENUE
Chelsea host United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday 23 October at 4pm.
HOW TO FOLLOW
The game will be shown live on Sky Sports 1 from 3.30pm onwards, but Standard Sport will have live coverage from 3pm. :eave your email address below to receive a message when our coverage starts.
Conte will make a late decision as to whether Willian will play after he arrived back from Brazil on Thursday following the death of his mother last week.
Oscar also missed the 3-0 win over Leicester City after travelling back to Brazil following the death of his grandfather, but he has trained this week - although his participation against United is also in doubt.
That could pave the way for Victor Moses and Pedro to keep their places on the right flank while Nemanja Matic and N'Golo Kante play in central midfield.
John Terry has fully recovered from the ankle injury that has kept him out of Chelsea's games since the 2-2 draw at Swansea City, although he is unlikely to force his way back into the starting line-up following the success of Conte's 3-4-3 system which sees Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta play at the back.
However, Conte will not have Branislav Ivanovic (muscle) or Cesc Fabregas (thigh) available.
Mourinho, meanwhile, could be missing Morgan Schneiderlin and Anthony Martial after the pair sat out the goalless draw away to Liverpool on Monday following injuries sustained during training.
Chelsea possible starting XI: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill, Moses, Matic, Kante, Alonso, Pedro, Costa, Hazard.
Man United possible starting XI: De Gea, Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Shaw, Fellaini, Herrera, Mata, Pogba, Lingard, Ibrahimovic.
