Jose Mourinho Names Attacking XI As Manchester United Take On Chelsea

Postado Outubro 20, 2018

Eden Hazard's form is bad news for Chelsea's Premier League title challengers, according to Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

"People talk about our team - especially in relation to Manchester United now - and say it was attack, attack, attack".

Now the league's leading scorer with seven goals this term, Hazard has recaptured his best form under Maurizio Sarri, although he told Belgian outlet HLN during the global break that he wishes to work under Mourinho again.

"That puts them just on the Premier League and, in the Premier League, the results speak for themselves".

Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane had been linked with Jose Mourinho's position at Old Trafford after the Red Devils failed to win four games on the bounce.

Manchester United's visit to Chelsea on Saturday will be their 181 encounter and is slated to kick off at 12:30 pm BST and 5 pm IST.

English football star Wayne Rooney continues to thrill fans in Major League Soccer, scoring his 10 goal of the season for DC United with a long-range freekick bomb.

United go into the clash sitting seven points adrift of Chelsea but at least with positive feelings from their last match two weeks ago when they recovered from two down to beat Newcastle.

"He's a player like the others; no player is bigger than the club and, if I'm happy with his work, he plays", said Mourinho in late-September.

Manchester United arrived at their London hotel on Friday night ahead of their Premier League showdown against Chelsea. Alexis Sanchez is named on the bench.

Mourinho said: "Some of the players looked depressed in the first half with the result and with the pre match, because the pre match was a hard pre match for them". "We try", he said.
