Chelsea Predicted XI: Manchester United (H)

  Chelsea Predicted XI: Manchester United (H) Following back to back defeats to Premier League leaders Manchester City and bottom-placed Crystal Palace, Chelsea have steadied the ship and got back to winning ways, beating both Watford and Bournemouth to help them move back into the top four ahead of Arsenal on goal difference. The disappoint results home and away to Roma aside, Chelsea are in a relatively good spot right now as they prepare to welcome Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea beat Jose’s United 4-0 in this fixture last season en route to winning the Premier League title but United, two places and four points clear of the Blues right now, are a much tougher outfit these days. Conte will still be without Victor Moses for this one, but he can call upon N’Golo Kante again after the midfielder was declared fit. Here is our predicted XI for Sunday’s big game.

Victor Moses has paid tribute to Chelsea teammate Cesar Azpilicueta on the day that he was shortlisted for the prestigious BBC African Player of the Year award.

Moses was one of five men named on the shortlist for the award, alongside Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, RB Leipzig’s Naby Keita and Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, and he was quick to praise his teammates for helping him achieve individual recognition.

When asked by Goal about which of his fellow Chelsea players have helped him the most, he said:

“I’d say Azpilicueta [has influenced me most]. He played a huge part in my defensive development last season. He is always behind me, always constantly talking to me to make sure I am in the right position. When is the time to go and when’s the time to stay. The more games I was playing, we were getting used to the formation and position I was playing, which worked out well for me and he helped a lot. He understands me. We established a partnership which was very good.”

Meunier: I turned down Chelsea

  Meunier: I turned down Chelsea PSG defender Thomas Meunier says he turned down a deadline day move to Chelsea. The Belgium defender was given the chance to link up with international team-mates Thibaut Courtois, Eden Hazard and Michy Batshuayi but chose to stay in Paris.Meunier, who joined the French club from Club Brugge in 2016, has only started six Ligue 1 games this season after the signing of Dani Alves from Juventus.The 26-year-old wants to fight for his place and establish himself as a starter at PSG.He told Belgian TV: "I was expecting PSG to sign another right-back, but didn't foresee them getting Dani Alves.

Victor Moses has hailed Cesar Azpilicueta 's influence over his adaptation to a more defensive role after an excellent year with Chelsea and wing-back early in the 2016-17 campaign was instrumental in both driving the Blues to a Premier League title and also reviving Moses ' Stamford Bridge career .

Right-back Azpilicueta , 22, started his career with Osasuna and has represented Spain at various youth levels and played at the Olympics this summer. His arrival comes after Wigan Athletic accepted a £9m bid from Chelsea for forward Victor Moses .

Moses also said that he is keen to be named as Africa’s best player and that he is proud to be nominated for the same awards that ex-Chelsea stars have won.

“Every season I want to be the best I can to be Africa’s best player. I will do the best I can. To be honest with you, it is just about hard work. Once you put in the hard work then everything else falls into place. I am a player that will always look up to Didier [Drogba]. He is a legend, not just Africa and Chelsea, but the whole world. Didier is a great player. He scores goals, assists and he’s got everything that you’d ask for in a striker. We as African players are all proud of what Didier achieved as a player. The way he holds himself is unbelievable. Mikel and Essien have been nominated too. I am proud that we were nominated for the same awards.”
