Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho admits he no longer views Stamford Bridge as a lucky ground after his struggles there in his final season at Chelsea.
Mourinho went unbeaten at Stamford Bridge in the league during a sensational first spell at Chelsea from 2004 to 2007 which yielded two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and two league cups.
It was not until Mourinho’s 78th league game, during the first season of his second spell with the club, that the ‘Special One’ was finally beaten by lowly Sunderland.
During his final as Chelsea boss, Mourinho’s supremacy at Stamford Bridge deserted him. Crystal Palace won in west London last August and the Blues were blown away by Southampton just four days later.
They suffered a third home Premier League defeat to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool at the end of October.
When newly-promoted Bournemouth won at the Bridge on December 5, it proved a critical blow for Mourinho who was sacked just one game later.
