Conte takes blame after Chelsea fall at Old Trafford

Marcus Rashford opened the scoring for the hosts seven minutes into the first half and Ander Herrera scored the second goal just four minutes into the second half, reports EFe.

It was the ninth goal of a campaign that has seen the 19-year-old struggle to replicate his remarkable breakthrough, but the forward has retained Mourinho's belief throughout.

United's performance was one of their best since Mourinho took charge last summer.

"I want to say I was convinced even before the cup that controlling the two players that played behind Diego [Costa]", Mourinho explained, via Manchester Evening News.

"Only the decision that made us play with 10 men for the second half, plus some minutes in the first half, gave Chelsea a chance to be dominant, but we knew that if we played this way then it would be very hard for them".

"With his quality, he can be one of the top players, one of the most important players, in the world".

He added: "I think everyone did what they had to do".

"A lot has been said about how we want to finish fourth but I am that kind of person who wants to achieve more than that". United's unbeaten run in the league extended to 22 games, the longest in Europe's top five leagues.

Although some are remaining cautious despite seeing the lead at the top reduce to four points this weekend...

He first walked up to a lorry and shot a 34-year-old white man sitting in the passenger seat, but spared the Latino driver. He also told investigators he is Muslim, but he prays to seven different gods and hasn't been to a mosque in 25 years.

"We know our characteristic", Darmian said. "There have been a lot of draws at home".

Liverpool, which beat West Bromwich Albion 1-0 away in Sunday's other game, is six points clear of United in third place but has played two more matches.

"We have to think that there are six finals from now until the end of the season".

"This kind of game gives us confidence".

"But it's a great feeling to know that it's hard for us to lose a match, people fight until the end". Only Arsenal have more games left (eight).

Jose Mourinho made four changes to his side, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic - described by the manager as "very tired" - among the players dropping to the substitutes' bench.

Anderlecht will be in for a torrid time on Thursday if United can replicate that display in the Europa League quarter-final second leg. Maybe it is hard for some to find Matteo Darmian to play the role he played.

"I can't give up on the Premier League yet. Otherwise we deserve another thing".
