PREDICTION
The respective managers of both Manchester United and Chelsea have been making barbed comments to each other in the press as of late and it is fair to say that there is certainly no love lost between Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte. Sunday afternoon offers us the opportunity to see which of these two managerial masterminds can earn bragging rights over the other.

With at least one team set to drop points it will have serious ramifications in the race for the top four come full-time. Each outfit has had slightly indifferent form as of late with United just edging matters when you compare their last six league results. With that in mind, and with the fact that this titanic clash is being staged at Old Trafford, you get the feeling that it might just be the Red Devils who come out on top and add pressure on to the shoulders of Antonio Conte.

MEMORABLE MEETING
The 2000-01 Premier League season saw Manchester United win the league at a canter as Sir Alex Ferguson masterminded another domestic success. However, their home clash with Chelsea during that campaign was one of the rare occasions in which they dropped some points. That was due to the two sides playing out a very entertaining 3-3 draw. It did look as if the Red Devils were on the way to a rather comprehensive victory especially as they were 3-1 up at one stage, but a Tore Andre Flo double restored parity and it meant that the West London outfit were to return home with a share of the points.
