Maurizio Sarri: 'Manchester United have best players in Premier League'

Speaking ahead of the Red Devils' trip to Stamford Bridge on Saturday, the Man Utd boss told a press conference: "I would love to have him in Manchester United but I don't think Chelsea will be selling to Manchester United so it's not a problem".

The Belgian led Chelsea to the title under Mourinho in 2014/15 and with Antonio Conte in charge in 2016/17.

Manchester City are a best-priced 1/12 to beat Burnley, Liverpool are a general 1/3 to win away at Huddersfield and Chelsea are 8/11 to beat Manchester United.

"He's probably the best player in the Premier League right now".

The Red Devils return to league action with a clash against Chelsea, and the Frenchman believes Eden Hazard is the player in the league now.


"Chelsea is top of the league now because he is the kind of player that can make a huge difference".

United have already lost three times in the Premier League this season, and sit down in eighth position in the table, seven points behind second-placed Chelsea. In the two years I've seen of him at United, I've not seen any improvement.

"I think he is a nice kid". "At the moment I think City are better as a team, but player by player, they are really very, very strong".

Souness said: "He has to turn up and show he's a proper player". But Mourinho again staunchly defended his approach.
