Due to the success he had when he arrived at Chelsea, Jose Mourinho has always been closely linked with them.

He won the Premier League twice in his first two seasons and once more when he returned years later.

Although relations soured following his second departure, Mourinho will always have a place in Chelsea fans hearts.

But could Chelsea consign Mourinho to unemployment with a strong performance against his Manchester United side?

Due to a poor start to the season, rumours have been flying that Mourinho’s time in Manchester is short.

Combined with his increasingly fractious relationship with the media, many believe Mourinho is deep into his typical “third-season meltdown.”

Although they had a remarkable comeback against Newcastle before the international break, Mourinho’s job doesn’t look safe.

And Maurizio Sarri has had an excellent start to life as Chelsea boss, and will be looking to continue on Saturday.

His side are joint top of the Premier League and remain undefeated after eight games.

Eden Hazard has started excellently under Sarri, and is currently the leagues top scorer with seven goals.

And another strong performance on Saturday by the Blues could force the Manchester United hierarchies hand and finally move on from Mourinho.
