The Manchester United pair are ready for their trip to Chelsea on Sunday afternoon

David De Gea was all smiles with Matteo Darmian as the Manchester United duo prepared for their crunch Premier League trip to Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils pair both featured for Jose Mourinho’s men on Thursday night as United ran out 4-1 winners over Fenerbahce in the Europa League at Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho is now preparing to return to Stamford Bridge for the first time since his sacking by Chelsea back in December of last year.

United are aiming to get back to winning ways after the disappointment of consecutive Premier League draws against Stoke City and Liverpool in recent weeks.

And De Gea used his personal Instagram account to snap a picture with his team-mate and issue a rallying cry ahead of Sunday’s showdown.

De Gea posted the picture above on the app and wrote: “Good game yesterday! Totally focused on Sunday! C’mon @manchesterunited 🔴🔴🔴 #mufc #premierleague”
