Jose Mourinho won't 'celebrate like crazy' if Man United win at Chelsea

Sarri's comments offer a huge contrast to the war of words Mourinho was embroiled in with Antonio Conte during his reign as Chelsea manager this time a year ago, with the current incumbent in the Blues hot-seat downplaying that spat.

Lawro is sitting on the fence for this one, and predicting a 1-1 draw.

Manchester United managed to record a win in their last outing in the global break, but the Red Devils were forced to dig deep to come from 2-0 down to secure a 3-2 victory over Newcastle United.

The Italian's comments may come as a surprise to some given the Red Devils sit eighth in the table and trail unbeaten trio Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea by seven points.

The odds suggest the Premier League's top three have relatively easy tasks this weekend.

"For me is another game", Mourinho told a news conference on Friday.

With the win, the Pelicans won their first season opener since the 2014-15 season when they defeated the Orlando Magic, 101-84. Nikola Mirotic delivered 30 points and 10 rebounds in the blowout as the Pelicans led by as many as 29 points at one stage.

When asked whether Mourinho is getting the respect he claims he deserves, Sarri offered up this response: "I think no at the moment, but I am not really sure because I don't want to read anything".

Then manager Jose Mourinho, who was initially backed by many over his wish for more signings, has received a lot of negative press for both performances and his attitude. At the start of the season, we were talking about them being in the title race but now they are fighting for the top four.

"At the moment City is better as a team, but player-by-player they [United] are very strong".
