  • Chelsea head into the game at Stamford Bridge on the back of their 3-0 defeat by Roma

Chelsea are trailing United by four points in the Premier League table heading into the showdown with their title rivals at Stamford Bridge.

SCOTT MCTOMINAY WILL be a Manchester United star, according to his team-mate Nemanja Matic.

Manchester United took another big step towards qualification for the last 16 of the Champions League on Tuesday night when they sealed a 2-0 win over Benfica at Old Trafford.

United manager Jose Mourinho also praised the 20-year-old, and used his performance as an opportunity to hit back against critics who claim he doesn't play young players.

"We know we're talking about an important player".




Considering the Red Devils beat the Lilywhites 1-0 on the weekend in a Premier League clash, Mourinho responded: "I don't want to comment".

Antonio Conte has admitted that Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante is "progressing well" ahead of the club's crunch clash with Manchester United.

Kante, who picked up a hamstring injury while on worldwide duty with France in October, has missed Chelsea's last six matches in all competitions but has returned to training with the first team. I think it's a big game because it's a big game not because I've been at Chelsea or Matic or Mata.

"I think that if a player nowadays wants to go to a team, the player has a strong will to join another team, it is hard and you cannot just ignore him and say "you can't leave", the Belgian was quoted as saying by FourFourTwo. "There is a lot of pressure around the game, but obviously we will try to play our best football and try to win and come back to Manchester with three points".

Pep Guardiola's side have looked invincible at times, winning their last eight league games by an aggregate score of 32-5.
