Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says that he will respect the fans of former club Chelsea when facing the Blues at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has said that he intends to show respect towards Chelsea supporters at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

Mourinho takes United to face his former club at a time when he is under pressure to deliver results, with United currently sitting in eighth place in the Premier League standings.

The Portuguese has sometimes been animated when gaining important results in the past, but the United manager insists that will not be the case this weekend.

At a press conference, the 55-year-old told reporters: "For me it's another game. Would I celebrate like crazy, my team goal at Stamford Bridge or my team victory at Stamford Bridge? I don't think so. I think I would try to control myself and to respect the stadium and the supporters that were my supporters and stadium for many years.

"To do that should be something where I completely lost my emotional control, which is not easy, so I would think which stadium I am in, which public is in the stands, but apart from that it's another match for me.

"I want to do well for my team, players, support, I am 100% Manchester United tomorrow, no more space than respect for the stadium and the fans."

United currently sit seven points adrift of Chelsea in the table.
