Jose Mourinho speaks on Nemanja Matic's move to Manchester United

Romelu Lukaku

Manchester United have a very poor record in their recent league competition trips to Stamford Bridge, so it's only natural that the Red Devils enter the Super Sunday affair as underdogs.

Matic completed his £40m move to Manchester United in July and Chelsea were widely criticised for sanctioning the sale.

United manager Jose Mourinho also praised the 20-year-old, and used his performance as an opportunity to hit back against critics who claim he doesn't play young players.

During a press conference at the Aon Training Complex to preview Sunday's Premier League match at Chelsea, Mourinho was asked if good results are not good enough for some people.

But Conte is once again hopeful that his star midfielder can play a part when United visit Stamford Bridge at the weekend, though will not take any risks with his fitness.

"I think when you are a manager you always get ups and downs". You know very well we are talking about an important player'.

Conte has shuffled his pack since conquering the Premier League, with tweaks made to his senior squad.

Mourinho had told his Chelsea counterpart that his antics in whipping up the crowd during last season's 4-0 league victory were "humiliating" but Conte said he respected the Portuguese and expected the same in return.

Benfica will now have to beat both CSKA Moscow and Basel in their remaining two games if they wish to have any chance of qualifying for the last 16 meanwhile Manchester United are currently six points clear at the top of the table and should finish in the top spot. I think it's a big game because it's a big game not because I've been at Chelsea or Matic or Mata.

Antonio Conte is "more than capable" of getting Chelsea back on track, says former Premier League title victor Eidur Gudjohnsen.
