Eden Hazard and Willian
The two players have started the season in brilliant fashion

It's that time of the year again. Manchester United travel to the Bridge with the hope of finding points at a ground that hasn't always been kind to them. United, however, have the advantage on their side owing to Mourinho's knowledge of Chelsea and the team he was unceremoniously sacked from a year after winning the title.

The Special One returns to the place that made him a global phenomenon in the management world. The dynamics of this season still need to be identified for both teams but this clash is one both fans look forward to with fervour. This season especially, the game is an important one for both teams as they have not started as well as they expected to.

Here are five things that Manchester United must do if they are to beat the Blues:

#1 Stop the speedsters up-front

If there's one thing Chelsea can almost always count on, it's a performance from their high-flying forwards – Eden Hazard and Willian. The two are fast, superb dribblers and have a great eye for goal. United's defenders will have to put in an extra shift  if they are to ensure these two are not on song.

The two players have started the season in brilliant fashion sharing a total of 5 goals between them. Willian is coming back into the squad following the death of his mother and the team will be bolstered by his presence back in the squad.
