Mourinho out for revenge as Man United visit Chelsea in Cup

Mourinho out for revenge as Man United visit Chelsea in Cup

SunSport revealed yesterday (Thursday) how Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is set to recall ALL his big guns for the FA Cup tie with Manchester United.

The surface at the Olimp-2 Stadium proved as challenging as it looked and Mourinho was content to return home with no fresh injury worries ahead of Monday's FA Cup quarter-final showdown at his old club Chelsea. It's as if Jose Mourinho's ethos during his successful terms at Stamford Bridge remains a part of the DNA of the club, but they have been able to add flare and excitement under Conte.

That was the last time EFL Cup winners United lost in the league, something referenced by the Chelsea website on Friday. "Hopefully we can keep everyone fit like we have been managing to do this season, and we'll be prepared".

It means that Chelsea once again go ten points clear at the top, but with only 11 games left, it's going to be hard for any side to stop them winning a fifth title in 12 years. We have a good identity, a good team.

"They play Sunday against Terek Grozny, we play Monday against Chelsea".

"My players are focused on the game, on the pitch, on the work every game".

Bears Cut Off The Cutler Era
The Bears landed him with a three-year deal worth approximately $45 million, or perhaps just a shade under that. October 20: Five games into his first Bears season, Cutler is given a two-year, $30 million extension.

"Don't forget Chelsea is a great team in the same way as Barcelona and Real Madrid", he said.

"It is one of the best Premier League goals I have scored for sure", he said.

Perhaps the most interesting question is not one of personnel but of shape: United faced off against Rostov with a highly-unusual-for-Mourinho back three. "For me, the most important thing is to try to win and then think about another celebration".

With the Blues 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League, Conte will be offered a £1.5m salary boost, taking his annual pay to £8m, according to the Daily Mail. I didn't see us conceding a goal but we did it.

This is a unusual weekend, with the FA Cup interrupting the Premier League with only four topflight matches spread out over Saturday and Sunday.
