Man United's Jose Mourinho aims to improve record vs. Chelsea, ex-clubs

Steve Nicol fully agrees with Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois' statements that their match against Man United is a must-win.

Chelsea and Manchester United will try to make up ground on Premier League leaders Manchester City when they meet on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.

It will be yet another meeting between United manager Jose Mourinho and his former team. Mourinho won two consecutive Premier League titles after arriving at Chelsea in 2004 before he was sacked the first month of the 2007-08 season, then was reappointed to the role in 2013 and remained for two and a half seasons.

Mourinho, who joined United prior in the summer of 2016, has won five of nine games against clubs he used to manage in his career, with three defeats and one draw. A 1-0 win against Benfica in the group stage of the Champions League in October ended a run of three consecutive away losses against such clubs.

Chelsea enter Sunday having lost just one of their last 15 home Premier League games against United, winning nine of them and drawing five. That includes a 4-0 victory at Stamford Bridge last season behind goals from Pedro, Gary Cahill, Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante.

Manchester United have not won their last three away Premier League games after returning from European competition.

United have earned 23 points through their first 10 games, marking their best start to a Premier League season since they had 24 in 2012-13. That season, United's final under Alex Ferguson, also marked the last time Chelsea lost to United at home -- a 3-2 defeat on Oct. 28, 2012.

Overall, United have lost 17 Premier League games and 66 Premier League goals against Chelsea -- more than they have against any other side in the competition.

Antonio Conte has won 112 points from his first 48 Premier League games with Chelsea -- 11 points fewer than Mourinho had at that point in his time leading the club. Mourinho lost just once in his first 48 games with nine draws, while Conte has won 36 games, drawn four and lost eight.

United enter Sunday having scored 23 goals over their first 10 league games, with 11 of them scored in the final 10 minutes. Seven goals have been scored by substitutes, with Anthony Martial contributing four of them.

Romelu Lukaku has gone six games without a goal in all competitions after scoring in each of his six previous games for United. He has scored only 15 goals in 59 games all time against the Premier League's top six teams, but has scored 77 goals against other clubs in the competition.

Like Lukaku, Chelsea's Alvaro Morata has also experienced a goalless run as of late, with no goals in his last six games in all competitions after scoring six over his previous five.
