Mourinho says one point could be a positive result
Last season, Chelsea played at Old Trafford
with Andre Schurrle leading the line and
Sunday’s match could see the same scenario
as Diego Costa and Loic Remy are ruled out
with various injuries.

can confirm has no chance is Remy.”
“On Sunday we go to win. If you give me one
point now – and we don’t play the game – I
will not accept it. I want to fight for the three
points,” he continued.
“We are playing well, we are confident, we are
top of the league and we are in a good
position to qualify in the Champions League.
“The camp is happy and we are ready for the

now in better condition to fill in for the
suspended Cesar Azpilicueta.
“Filipe is playing a lot – every game in the
Champions League – so now he is in perfect
condition and as you can imagine he is very
stable, very experienced, and for us as a team
it makes no difference.”
Chelsea travel to Manchester on Sunday, top
of the EPL with 22 points while United are in
sixth place with 12 points.
