Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick refuses to look beyond this season

Manchester United will welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford in a crucial Premier League match for the Red Devils.

The pairing of Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo have been at the heart of the defence in the absence of the English duo and the Portuguese boss is concerned with their accumulation of fatigue before United host league leaders Chelsea on Sunday.

In October, he saw United thrashed 4-0 and made a public show of taking Chelsea manager Antonio Conte to task over his touchline exhortations, accusing the Italian of trying to "humiliate" him. They would like to fight to get there in this place.

While Chelsea are no longer the free-wheeling team seen in the weeks before Christmas, having gone nine league games without a clean sheet, they boast a formidable record against United.

"There is a game of football and I want to win with my team, he wants to win with his team".

"Many coaches try to manipulate the ideas but it is not important for me". "When you're playing in the Premier League, you have to have a bit of luck as well but you create the luck", Pogba said. "But if you ask me if I like or don't like it, I prefer to be focused on the game, to understand the game and to find the right solution if my team is in difficulty". They have a certain style of play.

"The best team at the end of the season is the one who is champions and we are far from it".

He told the BBC: "If you asked me to pick a victor I would go with the Blues but I just have a feeling Zlatan Ibrahimovic will play a big part in the outcome".

19 - difference between Chelsea's goals scored this term (65) and United's (46).

"Everybody knows that N'Golo Kante can run for 11 players - that's his best quality". When the manager tells him something, he will do it and he will do it perfectly. "It is not a friendly game, it is a game that another team wants the three points and for this reason you fight with all your possibility to try to win". "He's everywhere! He's a big player".
