  • Lukaku inspires Man Utd fightback to beat Chelsea

Manchester United welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday.

The two managers have been involved in a very public war of words over the past couple of months, and there had been some speculation that Conte would snub a handshake.

"We can meet in a room to try to explain about these comments", Conte said at the time of his trip to Old Trafford, as well as labelling Mourinho "a little man".

The Portuguese's cautious tactics in a 0-0 draw away to Sevilla in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie on Wednesday were heavily criticised. Pogba was praised for his professional response to being dropped by Mourinho, who may well recall the star midfielder when Chelsea come to town.

United have reinstated Paul Pogba for today's match.

Chance for Pep Guardiola to win first City silverware
Both Arsenal and Manchester City will be raring to go in the cup final, with a trophy at stake for both sides. This is the first-ever meeting between these sides in a major final.


"The Premier League is another competition and this is another opponent but it's important, we are fourth in the table and if we want to be at the top of the table and play Champions League next season we have to win these kind of games [against United]". "Nobody can doubt our credit to win the game".

Will costly error cost Christensen?

He replaces Pedro in one of two changes from the side which drew 1-1 with Barcelona on Tuesday, with Danny Drinkwater replacing Cesc Fabregas in the other adjustment for Antonio Conte's outfit.

Chelsea will be reunited with their former player at Old Trafford on Sunday and Conte expressed regret at the Serbia international's departure from Stamford Bridge.

'Christensen is having a fantastic season and showing great maturity. While the system - which had Hazard supported by Pedro and the impressive Willian - worked on Tuesday, it failed spectacularly in the recent three-goal defeats to Bournemouth and Watford.
