I love Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho - Chelsea star

Mourinho has been quick to point out that it is hard for a player to switch clubs halfway through the season while Sanchez himself has admitted he has endured a "difficult" first six months at Old Trafford.

Jones has faced criticism himself at times during the current campaign, but is hoping to end 2017-18 on a high by securing more major silverware.

"The Europa League final, I got a daft, silly injury at a stupid time".

On Saturday, the mental preparation begins.

Jones further revealed how he gets himself prepared for these fixtures, "I think about who I am up against, about every eventuality. The team effort", he told London News.

The Portuguese tactician has since admitted that the Blues won't agree to part ways with the wide-man easily, but he apparently continues to pursue the player, as he is yet to find an alternative world-class winger to field on the right flank.

Unlike predecessor Louis van Gaal, Mourinho will not be confronted with headlines that he is getting the sack before he has made his way into the room to address the media after the game.

Mourinho has at least ensured Champions League qualification for next season via a second-place finish in the Premier League.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris said this month that finishing in the top four meant more than winning a trophy. "But I wouldn't say successful".

But Conte continues to cling to his job and he now has the task of preparing a team to contest the FA Cup final against Manchester United on Saturday.

"He has different systems to play".

Sanchez arrived at United from Arsenal to much fanfare as his mid-season signing was a rare victory for United over cross-city rivals and Premier League champions Manchester City this season in winning the race for the his signature.

Gary Neville has reminded everyone that Manchester United "were pretty average" under Sir Alex Ferguson for three years in the 2000s. "The club then gave me the opportunity to go out on loan, but if that hadn't come up I would have been happy to stay because I liked the way we worked, it was good".

"Last season we went into the final thinking we could just deliver like we did for the rest of the season", he said.
