Conte regrets letting Matic join Man United

Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to training with Manchester United

Along with Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal, both clubs are battling for a top-four finish.

Conte and Mourinho reached an uneasy - and probably temporary - truce ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash between Manchester United and Chelsea at Old Trafford.

"The next game is always the most important because it's where you can get the three points", Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta said. Against Barcelona it was also a great performance from the team, almost ideal.

"When I put 200 per cent into this club every day in Cobham, personally it's always a fantastic season for me".

Conte and Mourinho have traded poisonous barbs this season, culminating in the pair saying they felt "contempt" for each other.

Asked for his thoughts on their impending meeting, Mourinho said: "I don't want to speak about it".

It descended from there as Mourinho referred to a four-month suspension Conte served in relation to match-fixing, for which the Italian was later cleared of any wrongdoing.

Manchester City's runaway campaign has left the rest of England's elite in their wake, including the Blues, who are 19 points behind the leaders and look certain to surrender their title.

Conte believes his players' performances in the 1-1 draw showed their true potential following recent disappointing league losses to Bournemouth and Watford. Willian opened the scoring at Stamford Bridge before Lionel Messi equalised.

I would definitely say, "Worth the money". "I hope, whenever the time is right, if it's meant to happen, I would happily do it". For some comic context, in the original marvel comic books the White Wolf is a white child adopted by King T'Challa's father.

Antonio Conte says it would be a boost for Chelsea if Jose Mourinho made a decision to bench Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba in Sunday's Premier League clash.

Redknapp added that Mourinho should show more faith in the 24-year-old, who United spent £89.3m on just two summers ago.

Chelsea are now fourth on 53 points, three points adrift of United who are second in the league table.

"He (Mourinho) is my friend". The one thing you can guarantee at Old Trafford is the opportunity as a visiting team to take the game to them.

United were criticised after Wednesday's goalless draw at Sevilla as the Spanish outfit were unfortunate not to secure a surprise victory.

"We have to play in a similar way".

And Matic has plenty of hope of a successful conclusion to the campaign, the Serbia worldwide telling United Review: "I think that we have improved".

Headstrong, successful and vain, entwined by their jobs, squabbling in the transfer market, flailing in the shadow of Manchester City, these two will collide again. "We have to stay compact and use the same plan as we used against Barcelona". A win for United, however, would leave Chelsea glancing anxiously behind them.
