Conte expects Pogba to start against Chelsea

Manchester United is a +125 home favorite at sportsbooks monitored by over Chelsea (+240 to win, +220 to play to a draw).

Naturally, you could never argue that McTominay was a more talented player than Pogba.

Pogba was left on the bench by Jose Mourinho for United's Champions League match against Sevilla after the midfielder previously claimed he was too sick to start last weekend's FA Cup clash at Huddersfield.

Conte's response was to label Mourinho a "little man" and "fake" by also delving into the Portuguese's past.

Tomorrow will be the fifth time Mourinho has led United into battle with Chelsea and the first since an intense public exchange with counterpart Conte.

Meanwhile, Mourinho has hailed Pogba's professionalism amid reports of rising hostility between them. Conte was later cleared of wrongdoing in court. Pogba and Mourinho both have big egos, but one of them is going to have to relent for the good of the club.

Asked if he meant to shake Mourinho's hand this weekend, Conte replied: "I'm not interested in this. I'm not interested in this".

Manchester United have lost two of their last three Premier League games following disappointing losses at Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur.

"We must pay great attention". Meanwhile, Jones has made an impressive 121 clearances and Smalling 111, with Chelsea's Rudiger and Andreas Christensen on 73 and 72 respectively.

Conte stated that his players can draw inspiration from their performance against Barcelona in Tuesday's Champions League which ended 1-1.

They have won only four of their 16 league matches under Mourinho against the other established top-six teams (D5, L7), scoring only 12 goals and conceding 18.
