New chapter added to Van Gaal's fluid football vs. Mourinho's pragmatism

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his team are prepared to play Manchester United this weekend.

Louis van Gaal had only been Barcelona manager for a few months and, although he already knew the young Jose Mourinho offered much more than just being a translator, he hadn't realised just how much. That would come, but thanks to an unlikely source.

It was September 1997 and the Catalans were preparing for a Champions League away match with Newcastle United. Before the game, Van Gaal's then assistant, Gerard van der Lem, had been discussing the English side's attack, and was rather dismissive....

Relationship between managers won't matter in Man United vs. Chelsea

Huge game this weekend in the Barclays Premier League, as the past greats of English football, Manchester United, take on the champions-elect, Chelsea. Ian Fiveankles explains EXACTLY what happens in this match, so you don't even have to watch it.

A meeting with Manchester United is always a grand occasion yet Chelsea's visit to Old Trafford on Sunday has an extra degree of grandeur due to the men at the helm of their respective clubs.

Jose Mourinho may well be master of all he surveys in the football world though he owes much of what he has become to the tutelage of Louis van Gaal. The pair spent three years as close colleagues at Barcelona in Mourinho's formative years and the Portuguese has only always spoken in glowing terms of his Dutch...

Manchester United-Chelsea reunites Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho

Louis van Gaal believes Manchester United can still win a Premier League title. The ESPN FC panel think otherwise.

When Britain's football writers held a gala dinner in honour of Jose Mourinho this year , Louis van Gaal stood up to pay a handsome tribute to the talent and loyalty of his old Barcelona sidekick.

At that stylish evening in a swanky London hotel, Van Gaal had only the Netherlands and the World Cup on his mind. Little did we know then that the two friends would soon be locking horns in an Old Trafford confrontation between Manchester United and Chelsea.

The only safe bet is that they will share a...

Angel Di Maria and Juan Mata set for reunion with Mourinho

Louis van Gaal believes Manchester United can still win a Premier League title. The ESPN FC panel think otherwise.

Manchester United have broken their record transfer fee twice in 2014, with vastly different levels of success. Juan Mata has rarely sparkled since his 37.1 million-pound move from Chelsea in January, but Angel Di Maria has been in impressive form, having been signed for 59.7 million pounds in the summer. Jose Mourinho, who visits Old Trafford with Chelsea this weekend, might have predicted how things would go.

Mourinho, of course, has coached both, and his perception of the duo tallies closely...

Flawlessly constructed Chelsea confident ahead of Man United match

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says Diego Costa and Loic Remy are expected to miss their match against Manchester United.

If you were looking for reasons Chelsea won't win the title, their midweek clash with Maribor was not a good place to start the search. It wasn't the scoreline that should chill the rest of the Premier League, it was the manner in which it was secured.

Chelsea aren't just a good team, they're a driven team. They are fully committed, utterly professional and they have very few weaknesses. Manchester United supporters should be rather concerned ahead of this weekend's big game.

Maribor, of course,...

Man Utd's failure to land Fabregas signals shift in balance of power

Cesc Fabregas could have had a similar impact at Old Trafford, had he joined.

It was in the middle of July in 2013 and a flight was suddenly required to transport Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward back from Australia to England. "Urgent transfer business" was the designated reason and, a few days later, it became clear why, as Cesc Fabregas was duly announced as United's record signing.

Woodward and David Moyes had demonstrated that the club's pulling power remained intact despite the departures of David Gill and Sir Alex Ferguson. The new manager looked...
