Chelsea v Watford - Premier League
Antonio Conte has a million reasons to beat Jose Mourinho

It is time! The much-anticipated clash between the two heavyweights of the Premier League is set to get underway tomorrow at Old Trafford. Manchester United will play host to Chelsea in a game which has a lot on the line. With the race for the top four spots seemingly getting tense with each passing week, this match-up can be a potential 'six-pointer'. 

Chelsea, understandably, have a lot more on the line than United. They can catch their opponents with a win at Old Trafford and stake their claim for the second spot. 

Jose Mourinho currently has a number of problems at United (Hi, Paul) but at this moment, Chelsea and Antonio Conte are the number one problem for the Special One. So, without further ado, we list the five reasons which make us believe why Chelsea will thrash Manchester United tomorrow:

Chelsea FC v FC Barcelona - UEFA Champions League Round of 16: First Leg
Chelsea have been impressive in the past two weeks

On one hand, Chelsea managed a fine draw against FC Barcelona in Europe whereas, on the other hand, Manchester United scraped through with a goalless draw against Sevilla in Spain. Same result but completely different performance. Chelsea were unlucky to not register a famous win against the Catalans whereas United were saved because of David De Gea's brilliance. 

After a slow start to the calendar year, Chelsea have picked up the pace in recent weeks with their draw against Barcelona being preceded by two convincing 3-0 and 4-0 wins over Hull and West Brom respectively. Also, Willian is currently in the best of forms while the team is performing like a unit. 

Meanwhile, United have not impressed in their last five games which includes two defeats against Spurs and Newcastle. The team has looked disjointed in recent games and may find it tough to stop an opponent who are currently on a high after being the better team against one of the best teams in the world.
