Manchester United 2-1 Chelsea: Four Things We Learned

Will David Moyes men spring a surprise on the Reds

Willian put the Blues ahead on the half-hour mark shortly before Romelu Lukaku equalised for United, with Jesse Lingard heading in the victor in the second half.

Antonio Conte's men sit fifth in the table following the defeat at Old Trafford on Sunday but Tottenham are just two points ahead so Chelsea could climb back in to the top four with a win over City if other results go their way.

But while the Blues kicked off on the ascendency, it was Mourinho's side who ended up as victors, thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard after Willian had opened the scoring.

The marquee transfer scored the equaliser before Jesse Lingard's victor in the 75th minute.

"I thought it weren't going to be our day, because we had a few chances, especially me, and Serge Aurier had one at the end too, but we kept going until the end and eventually got our rewards". I know that I can improve and really work hard.

Another win over Chelsea on Sunday will take the Citizens to the brink of winning the title as it would be virtually unthinkable they could blow a 16-point lead with just 10 games remaining.

After several failed and threatening attempts, the former Chelsea man chipped a delightful cross to Lingard who executed a flawless header shot giving his side a lead over Antonio Conte's men.

That is not Mourinho's only problem, however, as he continues to be at loggerheads with United's club-record signing over Pogba's best position. When Chelsea hit the posts, I was looking to my players and I was thinking 'what could we do?' or 'who can I blame?' but it was so beautifully played that I had nothing to say.

For Chelsea, Alvaro Morata returns to lead the attack, with Eden Hazard and Willian playing behind the Spain global.

"These are huge games and I think the fact we play a lot of our rivals at home is going to be a big factor because of our home form".

The United boss said: "You can only win against the top teams with that humble attitude".

Sanchez was given a different role yesterday against Chelsea as Manchester United ran out 2-1 winners.

We were tied 1-1 at the break and the Red Devils complete the comeback in the second half.

The home side pressed on in the second half - with Kante's early booking and Fabregas' limited mobility giving them the advantage in midfield, the front three found themselves more involved in the final third.
