Manchester United manager David Moyes is looking forward to tonight’s match against Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea in what will be his first home game in charge of the club after taking over from the retiring Sir Alex Ferguson.
Chelsea comfortably won their first two games of the season, and knows that a win over United at Old Trafford would see them six points clear of last season’s champs.
“There is lots I’ve been looking forward to: taking the team on tour, leading them at Wembley,” Moyes said.
“But to do itat Old Trafford for the first game against Chelsea is a thrill, it really is.”
Manchester United beat Swansea in their first game of the season 4-1 away, while Chelsea has defeated Hull City and Aston Villa.
Tonight’s match should prove a good test for the new manager with Manchester United having only won one of their last six games against Chelsea.
Tonight’s clash also has the hidden element of Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho ready to deliver his clubs third offer for United striker Wayne Rooney once the game is over.
Blowing aside speculation over the Rooney bid Mourinho said: “In this moment I don’t care, I have a big match to play on Monday. I don’t care about new players.”
