Terry believes his side's 100% start to the season and recent form in Manchester will stand the Blues in good stead.

"We've had a good record going away there at Old Trafford in the last few years and I think that will serve us well," Terry told Sky Sports' Geoff Shreeves.

"Obviously it's David Moyes' first game at the stadium so you're expecting quite a hostile atmosphere anyway.

"But we'll go there and look to stay solid for the first 15 minutes anyway. We know it's going to be a tough place to go and they've obviously had a good win against Swansea as well.

"I think that the two wins for us early on will definitely serve us well and we'll go there full of confidence.

"From our point of view we've had two games at home and we've won both of them."

Terry added: "I think Jose's record in the Premiership and at Stamford Bridge has always been very good and he's made it very clear again to us that it's very important we win our home games and we hope to win as many away games as possible.

"At the same time I personally feel you can go away and win or lose these big games, it's important you win your home games. Even though I think we're strong enough to go there and win, I think a result would be a good result for both sides maybe and then we move on into the season."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
