Chelsea welcome Manchester United in a Premier league game that has been dubbed a make or mare for Antonio Conte.
The Premier league champions translated their poor form of the league into the Champions league as they were thrashed by Italian side Roma in the Champions league. Chelsea lost their position as group leaders in the Champions and they have to win their remaining games to qualify for the knock out stages of the competition.
The Blues are currently in fourth position on the league standings and nine points adrift the pace setters Manchester City. Any result other than a win against Manchester United, may just end any title ambition they have.
Meanwhile, Manchester United have enjoyed relatively good form this season, losing just a game and drawing two among seven wins. Mourinho has lost twice and won once against Antonio Conte but the form of the Blues has seen pundits dubbed United as favourites.
