"I am excited to help him, especially the simple things which will make him become a better player". The Blues head into the weekend in third position, three points behind the two Manchester teams who are neck-to-neck at the top.

City gave first starts of the season to Yaya Toure and Ilkay Gundogan at West Brom, with another recalled player - Leroy Sane - scoring twice in just his second start of the campaign.

At the same time, Manchester City have spent only 74 million more than United.

With Chelsea facing the prospect of three games in seven days, Conte knows he will have to rotate his squad and believes he is now able to call on Hazard from the start, rather than manage him carefully from the bench.

Here Sportsmail outlines the respective strengths and potential weaknesses of Guardiola's City and Mourinho's United.

Manchester United's next match is against Southampton in the Premier League. We defend a lot of spaces in behind, when they defend small spaces. "They can't make you do anything", the Stoke chairman added. I expect Conte to name the same team except Rudiger will come in for Cahill and Christensen will replace the suspended Luiz.

On Wednesday, he said he has made a decision on whether the USA will continue to abide by the deal, but he declined to elaborate. Iran says it has successfully tested a new-medium range missile , in defiance of US President Donald Trump , reported BBC.

Hughes' side may not be as agricultural as they once were under former boss Tony Pulis, but there's been a sense of Stoke finding themselves again in home games against Arsenal and United. The Premier League Pass costs $50. We are likely to see at least a couple of goals in the Crystal Palace net, which is why my pick is going to be Asian Handicap -2.5 Manchester City.

"(My players) have to have respect for the opponent.

In further good fitness news, club captain Vincent Kompany is back in full training and could even feature against Palace.

"But he showed his personality because it's not easy for him to play in these type of games". "After a really bad injury, not a simple injury - don't forget he broke his leg in a bad way". The Swans have just two goals this season, one from Tammy Abraham and one from Jordan Ayew. However, Nemanja Matic is the one giving the most to the stability of this side. "They have been the most entertaining side going forward in the league", he said, "But I don't think their defense has been tested yet".

I have no doubt trophies will be coming up to Manchester, the question is how many will have blue ribbons, how many red and, vitally, where will the most prestegious ones go. Because of that, I can see them easily taking all 3 points from this match.
