During their bitter words exchange, it was indicated that the United manager was a small man and contempt was to be found on the actions of the Italian manager.
Manchester United will be looking to close the gap on old rivals City when they take the Blues on sunday. Jose Mourinho and his men will end up being in 3rd position should they loose at Old Traford when Liverpool beat West Harm. Antonio Conte’s future all seems to be shaking at Stamford Bridge, this looks likely that in case he didn’t do any better in the next three matches starting from sunday, he will be fired. Both managers are very demanding on their respective teams and now, they all have weakness to overcome in order for their jobs to be in cold water. Pogba is arguably loosing favour and static with his controversial manager and position respectively. If any problem awaits, maybe it might be starting anyway and that will be affecting the game both on and off the pitch. In terms of confidence, Chelsea are ahead of United, from the view of their last performance against Barcelona. The Red Devils were not able to meet their expectation against Seville on last wednesday night, especially in the case of adding 29 year old Alexis Sanchez to their team.
