EPL: Manchester United v Chelsea: Conte predicts Mourinho’s lineup


Antonio Conte has predicted Manchester united line up ahead of their Premier League clash on Sunday.

The Italian said he expects both Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to start for Red Devils.

Sanchez has scored just once in his first six appearances since his high-profile transfer from Arsenal in January.

Lukaku has 21 goals in all competitions this season but is yet to score against any of the sides currently in the top eight of the Premier League table.

Conte is in no doubt that Sanchez’s presence makes Jose Mourinho’s side stronger than they were before the January window.

He said, “I think United was strong before and are strong now.

“When you add a great player like Sanchez you are stronger. Our situation doesn’t change.

“We have to prepare the game and my expectation is to see him on the pitch with Lukaku, and then I don’t know. Another midfielder or a number ten.”
