Premier League: Chelsea vs Man Utd preview 

Manchester United can alleviate some of the pressure on Jose Mourinho with a win at his old club Chelsea today. United’s 3-2 win over Newcastle before the international break may have saved Mourinho’s job in the short-term, but this is still their third-worst start to a Premier League season, and defeat at Stamford Bridge could see them slip into the bottom half. Mourinho has a poor record against Chelsea since he was sacked in his second spell in west London in 2015, and is yet to win an away game against the Blues since he took over at Manchester United a year later. And questions over his future at Old Trafford will intensify if he is unable to arrest that run from 11.30am on Saturday. Things are looking a lot better for Chelsea, meanwhile, who sit joint top of the Premier League after an impressive start under Maurizio Sarri. The Italian, highly rated for his work at Napoli, has implemented his style in rapid time at Stamford Bridge to lead them to an unbeaten start with eight games gone. Much of that success has revolved around Eden Hazard, who told Sky Sports this week he would be content to stay at Chelsea for the rest of his career, and is the Premier League’s top scorer with seven goals. The Belgian has also made no secret of his admiration for his new manager, who is on course to help him deliver the most productive season of his career. “I like this type of game. It’s completely different than Conte or Mourinho before,” he said. “We have more ball so for me it’s not bad.”
