Manchester United v Chelsea: Premium League

Share

On Sunday, a resurgent United put up an unexpected brilliant performance as they defeated Chelsea 2-0 to breathe new life into the title race at the Old Trafford.

"The second is they [Chelsea] are the leaders and when you beat the leaders it is obviously a very good feeling".

Despite having been barracked with chants of "Judas" during United's 1-0 defeat at Chelsea in the FA Cup last month, Mourinho said victory over his former club carried no special significance.

The Italian said: "I think they deserved to win".

The Seattle Mariners will honour Ichiro Suzuki with a unique collectable during the series finale against the Miami Marlins. NY is 7-1 on its nine-game homestand, including a victory last Friday for Masahiro Tanaka (1-1, 8.36 ERA) against St.

The Red Devils' opener through Marcus Rashford gave them a surprising one-goal lead at the break. Tottenham now trail them by four points with six games to go and have the superior goal difference. "We must find the same", remarked The Blues manager.

A victory for the visitors would see them regain a seven-point advantage at the top of the Premier League table after Tottenham's comfortable 4-0 victory over Bournemouth on Saturday. I think Spurs will smash us next week, especially when we could be without Thibaut Courtois and Marcos Alonso. "When they tried to play counter-attack we were always in control of these two link positions", he added.

Mourinho's decision to man-mark Eden Hazard and Pedro effectively muzzled Chelsea, who failed to register a shot on target in a league game for the first time since 2007.

"Actually he is better than quite good at the tactical side as we know more than anyone, but his inside knowledge of the Chelsea team was the killer on the day".

Nigel Farage says he will not stand in June general election
He added: "I know absolutely nothing about Clacton apart from it's one of the most Euro-sceptic places in the country". Many thought Farage would win the seat in the 2015 election, but he lost to Conservative MP Craig Mackinlay.

Young was as proud of the display as he was to captain United for the first time, saying "every man was fantastic from start to finish" as his side stylishly ended a frustrating run of home draws. We need to realise it's not over, we need to realise there are points to play for, and we have to dig in. "It is important to understand which was wrong today and then to restart together but - I repeat - for the performance today the fault is mine".

There's plenty to think about in the remaining weeks of the season for United manager Jose Mourinho (left) and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

Offering more mobility than Ibrahimovic, Rashford tormented Chelsea's defense all game and showed there is a bright future at United if the Swedish striker decides to end his stay at Old Trafford after just one year.
