Without a doubt, Jose Mourinho is one of the finest managers in the current football scene and is labeled “the special one” with numerous achievements to his name. The record books are filled with proofs of how good Jose has been so far in his career. Well, the atmosphere isn’t the same after he was sacked by Roman Abramovic after a disastrous start to the season during his second spell at Stamford Bridge.
This weekend, the Special One will be returning to Stamford Bridge for the first time as an opponent. Keeping all the odds aside, will he succeed in making this a dream return and break the mighty record he established himself at the Stamford Bridge when he was a Blue?
Can't wait for Chelsea v United. I miss the Jose mourinho chants at the bridge

Jose has had two fine spells at Chelsea, where he succeeded in leading them to 3 Premier League crowns but the climax of this story was not at all pleasant. Anyhow, Jose joined Man Utd this season and has had a pretty decent start, but things started going downhill as focus started to shift.
His trip to Stamford Bridge as not a Chelsea Manager for the first time will be worth remembering, but at the same time dreading after a frustrating night at Anfield. United will have to face Fenerbahce in the Europa League before the big clash against Chelsea. Now, things might get tiring for Jose as he will be leading an exhausted team on his return to his previous workplace.

The gurus are in doubt about this being a dream return for Jose and the weary legs of Manchester United’s players are not the only reason. Diego Costa is in supreme form and Chelsea, as a team, appears to be more composed under Antonio Conte. Although there isn’t much difference between the league position of the two sides but Chelsea is still placed above Man Utd.
Jose will be desperate for a win against Chelsea but after a wearing and tiring week, the preparations do not seem to be in the right direction. On the other hand, Chelsea is not only winning but will also get ample time to rest and prepare for this big clash.
All in all, this weekend clash will be a treat for football fans at both ends. The highlight of the evening will be Jose’s presence but in the Red’s corner. It’s hard to predict Jose’s emotion on his return to Stamford Bridge – agony or excitement?
