Manchester United manager David Moyes admits he is excited by the prospect of pitting his wits against Jose Mourinho when Chelsea travel to Old Trafford on Monday evening.
Chelsea travel to Manchester to contest the first competitive home encounter of the Moyes' era, after he succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson as Red Devils boss at the end of last season.
Mourinho had been accused of mind games earlier this summer with the Chelsea boss supposedly attempt to disrupt Moyes' short reign with Manchester United but, as far as the latter is concerned, there is no bad blood between them.
“I really like Jose. He's had great success,” Moyes told reporters.
“I've not seen him for a long time so I’m looking forward to seeing him.”
Chelsea enter the encounter at the summit of the Premier League table having won both of their opening two fixtures - the first a comfortable defeat of Hull and the second a more testing victory over Aston Villa.
Manchester United, meanwhile, have themselves started impressively in defence of their crown, with the champions claiming a 4-1 win away at Swansea on the opening day of the campaign.
