Chelsea are able to defeat Manchester United, implies talkSPORT commentator Stan Collymore, who explained how Mourinho should set his Blues up this weekend…

Manchester United dropped two vital points earlier this evening, Monday, as Louis van Gaal's side failed to oversee a determined West Bromwich Albion.

United were held by a 2-2 score at the Hawthorns and are already ten points behind pace-setting Premier League leaders Chelsea in the table, six days ahead of their Super Sunday showdown on October 26.

Chelsea are one of the form sides in world football right now with 22 points returned from a possible 24 - undefeated in eight league games and devastating attack-minded players like Diego Costa and Francesc Fabregas, who have formed an irresistible understanding since moving to the Blues.

United, in contrast, are yet to truly click under the stewardship of Louis van Gaal and there appear to be more weaknesses than strengths in the Dutchman's roster - particularly when it comes to balance.

talkSPORT commentator Stan Collymore believes there is one clear way Jose Mourinho must set his Chelsea team up if the Portuguese is to bank maximum points this weekend.

"If you’re Jose against this United side you draw them in and spit them out on the counter," said Collymore on Twitter.

"United simply can’t play defensively at Old Trafford."
