Paul Merson states his prediction for Chelsea FC v Man United

Mourinho at Stamford Bridge

Hazard admitted that things didn't go well in Mourinho's past year at the club, but blames that on himself.

"No, I am not happy, honestly", Mourinho said when asked about what he described as the "manhunting" against him in the wake of the Newcastle match.

The Manchester United manager has previously insisted that he can handle the persistent criticism from former players, most notably Paul Scholes. Yes, it bothers me.

This weekend his only aim will be to score against United, which could be bad news for the Belgian's former boss.

Chelsea now sits third in the Premier League table on goal difference, but is tied with league-leader Manchester City and Liverpool with 20 points from eight games.

Dr Phelps has already said she will guarantee supply and that she would prefer the Government to run its full term. Polling booths have closed in the crucial by-election and candidates have begun the anxious wait for results.

The Blues have already beaten Arsenal 3-2 at Stamford Bridge in their second league fixture of the season, before Liverpool FC denied Chelsea FC a valuable win when Daniel Sturridge netted a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw in west London outfit last month. "The key is for the players to be able to do it".

"But history says that when Eden Hazard is the best player of the Premier League, Chelsea are the champions".

Three Premier League starts this season for Martial has yielded just one goal, but that strike did come at a vital moment in the 3-2 comeback win over Newcastle before the worldwide break. "Chelsea is led by intelligent and experienced people and they would never sell Eden to Man United", he said.

"I would love to have him in Manchester United but I don't think Chelsea will sell him to Manchester United, so it's a not problem", Mourinho added. Very good results, top of the league and, of course, lots of good players.

Mourinho knows the addition of a player like Hazard at Old Trafford could make all the difference.
