Jose Mourinho has surprise tactical plan in store for Chelsea game

Mourinho plans to play Eric Bailly ahead of Paul Pogba

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly planning to match Chelsea's 3-4-3 formation in order to nullify the threat from Eden Hazard at Old Trafford tomorrow.

The Red Devils host the Blues in a much-anticipated Premier League clash on Sunday, and Mourinho will be determined to get another win over his ex-employers - in order to regain his side's second spot in the standings.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Mourinho has plans to play another centre-back versus the Blues, and this could potentially see Paul Pogba dropped for the Premier League outing.

Pogba struggled with a minor knock at Newcastle United which hampered his performance in a 1-0 defeat, and he appears set to face the axe with Eric Bailly in line to return to the starting lineup.

Bailly has only made a cameo appearance since his comeback from an ankle problem, but the Ivorian is likely to be trusted into the lineup to negate the threat from Hazard, in particular.
