Manchester United vs Chelsea: Paul Pogba names N'Golo Kante's greatest quality

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will face his former club Chelsea again on Sunday in the latest chapter of one of English football's most storied rivalries.

United have suffered two painful defeats against Chelsea already this season, losing 4-0 in the league and 1-0 in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Chelsea's far superior cutting edge means the league leaders are 18 points better off than fifth-placed United, although the west Londoners' turnaround this season should offer Mourinho's side hope. We will have to do the same or more than before to get another win. He wants to try and win with his team. For us as well, because we're playing for the top four as well, so it's going to be a game that's really important for each team. Yeah, we have got a tough run-in but it is still close.

"But you never know, that's what the attractive thing in the Premier League".

The Blues have won their last two Premier League games against Manchester City and Bournemouth to move to within five wins of the top-flight crown. For his part, Conte has sought to play down any suggestion of tension between himself and Mourinho.

Pogba lauded Kante's work rate and believes his productivity is what earned him his nomination for PFA Player of the Year.

Pogba's admiration for the Italian is as clear as his respect for a worldwide team-mate, and weekend midfield rival, N'Golo Kante. Mourinho also had a run-in with Chelsea FC manager Antonio Conte over his touchline exhortations, even accusing the Italian of trying to "humiliate" him.

Chelsea's big stars have certainly been earning their wages this season, with the Blues now seven points clear of second-place Tottenham Hotspur. "He's everywhere! He's a big player".
