Jose Mourinho Antonio Conte split
Jose Mourinho has gone conservative against the top guns this term and would do in like fashion against his former employers

Sunday action in the Premier League will see heavyweights Chelsea and Manchester United take on each other at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Conte’s men had a week to forget as they fell to a heavy 3-0 defeat in the hands of AS Roma in the Uefa Champions League. Chelsea’s league form hasn’t been also great as they are nine points from the top. A win quoted at ( 2.45 ) with LionsBet will certainly bring some joy back.

The Reds Devils on their path have had a fruitful season so far, dropping seven points from a possible 30, sitting five points behind leaders Manchester City. Their 2-0 win to Benfica in midweek also keeps them in charge of their group. United have not had luck at Stamford Bridge over the years but are tipped at (3.20) for victory.
