Will Jose stop Hazard... again?

Jose Mourinho went to extreme measures to nullify Eden Hazard in Manchester United's 2-0 win over Chelsea at Old Trafford last season. Will he stop him again in the same fixture on Super Sunday?

"Hazard was desperate to prove a point to the man who questioned his heart during their bitter fall-out in the previous season at Chelsea, and there was no doubt he succeeded. But when he travelled to Old Trafford for the third meeting between the two sides in the penultimate month of the campaign, Mourinho finally enjoyed the upper hand."

Lukaku and Morata's problem

Romelu Lukaku and Alvaro Morata joined their new clubs for big money in the summer but were expectations too high? Ahead of Sunday's clash, we take a look…

"That the pair appeared set to make the move to each other's clubs at one stage in that transfer window only adds to the intrigue. After all of the hype, the social media buzz and the drama of the unveilings, which team actually got the better deal? The overriding feeling is that both Lukaku and Morata have underwhelmed at their new clubs. That seems more than a little unfair..."

How did Conte get the best out of Pogba?

Paul Pogba developed into one of the most sought-after midfielders playing for Antonio Conte at Juventus, but under Jose Mourinho this season his form has stalled and his performances have been criticised.

So how did Conte get the best out of Pogba? James Walker-Roberts takes a look...

Merson's prediction

And finally, the Magic Man's prediction...

"It's a must-not-lose game for both teams. If United win this, they almost put Chelsea to bed with a six-point gap, with Palace next up for them. Chelsea, meanwhile, go to Man City next, which will be hugely difficult.

"If United lose this, there could be a point between four teams in the top-four race, that's too close for comfort for United given they've been around second place for the entire season."
