Eden Hazard Is Ready To Take On Mourinho

Lessons have been learned ahead of today's face-off

Last time Manchester United and Chelsea met on the pitch, back in April, United manager Jose Mourinho made sure that his team didn't let midfielder Eden Hazard out of their sight, effectively freezing him out of the game.

After a 2-0 United victory, this time, Hazard is prepared for Mourinho's man-marking tactics.

"If that happens I need to find a solution to shine," the 26-year-old Belgian player told Sky News.

"Last year at Old Trafford we didn't find [a solution to him being constantly marked]. So I hope on Sunday we can find something good, not just me but the eleven players on the pitch to win this game."

However, he admits that anything could happen in the heat of the moment.

"I'll just react on the pitch in the moment... when you are focused on the game you are thinking about scoring goals or creating a chance, you see what happens."

Basically, all bets are off.
