Chelsea will host Manchester United on Sunday, which will surely be the match-up of the weekend, as both teams look to keep up with those above them.

Jose Mourinho's men are placed third in the Premier League, just two points behind the leaders Arsenal and one back from Manchester City.

The Blues have an impressive record at Stamford Bridge, with Mourinho currently on a 41-game run without losing at home, stretching back to his time with Real Madrid.

Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher, believes that the two players that will make the difference for each sides will be Eden Hazard for Chelsea and Adnan Januzaj for Manchester United.

He told Sky Sports: "Hazard has been Chelsea's stand-out player, there's no doubt about that. Chelsea, even though they've accumulated a lot of points, have been a bit workmanlike at times, even in games they've won, but he is the one who gives them something different.

"He's got that little bit of craft and genius."

Manchester United will be desperate to claim a victory over their rivals and try to gain some momentum for a charge towards the top four and Champions League qualification.

However, David Moyes might well take a draw if he could to ensure the Red Devils avoid another defeat this season.

Carragher added: "It's a toss-up between Januzaj and Wayne Rooney as to who has been the best player for United this season but while Rooney has been out for the last few weeks Januzaj has stepped up.

"For a kid to go into a side with that much history and be their best player in a difficult time, to go into a Manchester United team that isn't free-flowing with high confidence and to still be there wanting the ball - that shows the boy's talent."

The match-up will be the late afternoon kick off on Sunday with both teams looking to pick up a back-to-back victory.
