Chelsea v Manchester United

There is little doubt what the game of the day is today, in an enormous Super Sunday before the international break.

Chelsea host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge hoping to repeat their two wins over the Red Devils at this ground last season.

The Blues stuffed Manchester United 4-0 in the Premier League in this fixture in 2016/2017.

N’Golo Kante, who is expected to be back today, scored in both games against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, the second was a 1-0 FA Cup win.

Nemanja Matic returns to Chelsea

For any game between Manchester United and Chelsea, all eyes will be on Jose Mourinho.

The Special One enjoyed so much success with Chelsea, but eventually left in his second spell due to some woeful form by the Blues.

Whilst Mourinho dominates the occasion, there is arguably a more fascinating return today.

Nemanja Matic makes his first return to Chelsea since leaving for Manchester United in the summer.

There remains plenty of speculation over whether Matic forced a move, or Chelsea pushed the Serb midfielder to depart.

Who got the better deal: Manchester United or Chelsea?

The summer transfer market appeared to revolve around Manchester United and Chelsea.

United looked like clear favourites to sign Alvaro Morata with Romelu Lukaku going to Chelsea. This went in completely the opposite direction.

Whilst Manchester United fans have been delighted with the signing of Matic.

Chelsea supporters were initially impressed with Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The former Monaco man has though struggled in recent weeks, when he has not been partnered by Kante.

Despite contrasting starts to the season, new data released by daily fantasy football game in fact reveals that the in-form Nemanja Matic still falls well short of the out-of-sorts Tiemoue Bakayoko according to statistics.
