After watching his United side come from two goals down to beat Newcastle 3-2 prior to the October global break, Mourinho claimed there is a "manhunt" against him that will not cease until he is forced out of Old Trafford.

Mourinho said: "The results speak by themselves.

I want to do well for my team, players, the supporters - I am 100% Manchester United tomorrow; no more space than respect for the stadium and the fans". "Particularly at the end, obviously at the beginning when we came in it was Steve Bruce, Bryan Robson, Gary Pallaster, Mark Hughes, those type of players". Will Mourinho, a two-time former Chelsea manager, engineer another Stamford Bridge tactical masterpiece or will the intense criticism over his performance return after the two-week absence that was the worldwide break.

Manchester United supporters said the passion that Rooney is showing for the MLS side is exactly what's been missing at Old Trafford this season.

Despite being pummelled in the press, Mourinho insists he is still feeling fresh ahead of the challenge of leading United back to the top again.

Mourinho is Chelsea's best ever manager, with three league titles, an FA Cup and three League Cups during his two spells in charge.

"But I don't think Chelsea will sell him to Man United so it's not a problem because Chelsea is led by intelligent and experienced people in football".

José Mourinho returns to Stamford Bridge today, as Manchester United take on Chelsea in what feels like yet another final test for the manager.

Rooney wasn't a regular at Manchester United when they allowed him to leave in 2017.

"Very good results, top of the league and of course lots of good players but history says that when Eden Hazard is the best player in the Premier League, Chelsea is the champion".
