Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has admitted that he would love to have Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard at Old Trafford.
Hazard has started the new season in stunning form for us and already has eight goals to his name, despite all the speculation surrounding that this will be his last season at the club as he seeks to finally get a big money move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
But away from that, our next focus will be on the meeting with United this weekend as Maurizio Sarri looks to carry on his unbeaten start to the new season with a win over a very weak United squad, that will need dirty tactics and mind games to even get a draw.
And Mourinho has started those mind games by coming out and announcing that he would love to have Hazard in his squad, telling Sky Sports: “I would love to have him in Manchester United but I don’t think Chelsea will be selling to Manchester United so it’s not a problem. History says that when Eden Hazard is the best player in the Premier League, Chelsea is the champion. It happened with me, it happened with Antonio [Conte].
“Chelsea is top of the league now because he is the kind of player that can make a huge difference. Chelsea is led by experience and intelligent people in football. I think they would never sell Eden to Manchester United so it’s not a problem.”
Mind games wont work Jose, But can United stop Hazard? Here are our thoughts.
We all know what Mourinho is like and we all know the kind of tactics he will employ to come here and try to get a result to kickstart their unimpressive season, but luckily for us Hazard is too good of form to let a few kicks and niggles effect him in one of the biggest games of the Premier League season.
Mourinho will use mind games, will park the bus and play on the counter and will even try to get under the skin of the lads, but we are superior all over the pitch and if we just play out brand of football and excite like we have been this season, the game will be over before United have a chance to take Hazard out the game.
We are more than a one man team and Mourinho will walk away with nothing this weekend but a step closer to being sacked by United, we give the Red Devils no chance of picking up anything and expect a dominant performance from the lads.
