William Gallas: 'Jose Mourinho wants Paul Pogba reaction'

David Luiz, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Ross Barkley are not available but Conte assured fans that apart from the three, there are no injuries.

Guy Mowbray: "Both managers sensibly and diplomatically downplayed their feud in Friday's press conferences". It is totally different to play in the Premier League to the Champions League.

"It ought to be tight and it's nearly certain to be tetchy, with enough history and side issues to put a soap to shame". As United have a maximum 20 matches left, Pogba will have to markedly improve his ratio for his goals tally to reach double figures. But I've said this many times.

"With the players, I don't have any problem, any regret, any stone in my shoes, no problem at all". They showed at that moment they see me as a friend and someone that did the best for the club and always respected the club. You'd like to see them play with a bit more freedom and I think there's a lesson for everyone how City have played.

"It was suggested that Jose Mourinho wouldn't give young players a chance but to leave out your record signing and play a kid from your academy in one of his first big games, I would say, is just an incredible show of faith". The one thing you can guarantee at Old Trafford is the opportunity as a visiting team to take the game to them.

"I know the qualities that are going to make him a really good player".

Pogba's long-term future at Old Trafford has been thrown into doubt after he was said to have fallen out with United chief Jose Mourinho.

Tomorrow: Crystal Palace v Tottenham (12), Manchester United v Chelsea (2.05).

"It's always more hard to come on from the bench than to start. My focus is only for Chelsea, not the other team".

The kickoff for Manchester United vs Chelsea in the Premier League is at 7:35 PM IST.

The insults freely traded beneath the multitude-of-sins covering umbrella of "mind games" only a few weeks ago ceased as Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte prepared for confrontation.

The two sides clash this weekend with both looking to cement their positions in the top four in order to guarantee qualification to next year's Champions League.

The Chelsea boss also insisted that his side have to perform to their maximum in order to get a result against a side who, like them, are still competing in the Champions League Round of 16.

Mourinho's side were criticised for another boring performance, despite fielding a team that boasted Alexis Sanchez, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, and after decent results for Man City, Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea in their last-16 ties, some have accused Man United of letting the side down.
