Martin Keown states his prediction for Chelsea FC v Man United

Manchester United, meanwhile, endured a sluggish start to the season and is seven points back, having already lost three matches in the Premier League.

"Chelsea is top of the league because he is the kind of player who can make a huge difference".

The Manchester United manager faces disciplinary action for comments he made toward television cameras following the 3-2 comeback win against Newcastle before the worldwide break.

The Red Devils have struggled to hit top gear in the early weeks of the 2018-19 campaign, but Sarri has claimed that Jose Mourinho can call upon "maybe the best set of players in the Premier League".

Worryingly for Manchester United, David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho have all been unable to mastermind victories over Chelsea FC in the past five seasons.

Now the league's leading scorer with seven goals this term, Hazard has recaptured his best form under Maurizio Sarri, although he told Belgian outlet HLN during the global break that he wishes to work under Mourinho again.

However, in a recent interview Hazard spoke of his respect for Mourinho and his desire to play for his former manager again. Mourinho believes the good feeling remains from that victory in United's last match before the worldwide break.

"I think Chelsea will win 2-0", Keown told the Daily Mail.

Speaking about his team selection, Mourinho said: 'It's not a specific plan. We had a good relation, we were champions together. "We didn't sleep in the hotel, everyone stayed at his own house, and I think the players when they woke up - because they read on social media - the pre-match was not easy for them". But Mourinho again staunchly defended his approach. "That (style) is what I want".
