No problem with Chelsea despite Conte row, says United's Mourinho

No problem with Chelsea despite Conte row, says United's Mourinho

On his feud with Conte, Mourinho merely said: "I don't want to speak about it". Mourinho said the player made the decision himself which led to "creating some doubts" for the Manchester United boss for Wednesday's game.

"No problem at all, and the fans are fans, with many of them in the street I feel that empathy and that relation that normally should be a connection and feeling forever", he said.

"When I play at Stamford Bridge, some rejections from fans are just reactions".

And when asked about the Frenchman potentially being on the bench again this weekend, the Blues boss said, "We are talking about a top player, about a fantastic player".

"In this climate every manager is only as good as his last six games and if you have a bad six games you're out of a job and if you have a good six games you get another six games so it's a very intense high turnover industry at the moment".

Pogba coming in from the bench in the Champion League game against Sevilla was due to his illness before the match.

Chelsea fans have been given a boost of confidence after their side were the better team against Barcelona in midweek and now they feel they've been handed a boost to beat Manchester United on Sunday. "I don't know the final diagnosis but I know he'll be out for a few weeks".

Mourinho also provided an injury update on Ander Herrera, the man who Pogba replaced after quarter of an hour.

Instead he spoke of his relationship with the Chelsea hierarchy, for whom he delivered three Premier League titles in two stints as manager.

There has not been an away win in a league meeting between these clubs since Chelsea's 1-0 triumph at Old Trafford in May 2013. "The others have to judge my season, and the season of my players".

Following a mini-falling out between Paul Pogba and Mourinho, Roy Keane has defended the midfielder and put the pressure on his teammates for making life harder for him.

Chelsea has been one of the best road teams in the English Premier League this season with a 7-3-3 record and a +12 goal differential. Mourinho's side start next month with a league trip to Crystal Palace before welcoming top-four rivals Liverpool. "We must be wary of Manchester United's counter-attacks".

The Blues have won just two of their last nine away matches in all competitions (D4, L3).

Manchester United vs Chelsea is available in most nations through the rights holders' online platform, if they have one.

The two have exchanged multiple verbal jibes, most notably in January when Mourinho appeared to allude to a suspension Conte served in relation to match-fixing in Italy.
