Right then. Manchester United go to Stamford Bridge tonight on three interrelated missions:

— The first, and probably the most important to Jose Mourinho even if he absolutely cannot admit it, is not to get whomped 4-0 again. Anything better counts as progress, you see! Sweet, sweet progress;

— The second, and certainly the most stirring, is to mount a defence of the FA Cup. This side's inability to win basic home games is undermining the league campaign, so it looks like it's going to be a cup-focused season for United;

— The third, and perhaps the most intriguing, is to see whether United can actually compete against properly decent teams. As has been pointed out at various moments in the season, it's been a good long while since a Jose Mourinho side squared up to a very good side and gave them a thorough, caveat-free going over.

Here's how to watch all of that take place, or otherwise, on the flat glowing screen of your choice.
