Cahill urges Chelsea to dig in after United defeat

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho masterminded a brilliant and unexpected 2-0 home victory over former club Chelsea on Sunday to breathe new life into the Premier League title race.

Manchester United can use Sunday's impressive performance against Premier League leaders Chelsea as inspiration to achieve a strong finish to the season, winger Ashley Young has said.

The Spain playmaker's previous moment in the spotlight when the two sides faced off in last month's FA Cup quarter-finals ended in ignominy as he was sent off for scything down Hazard at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea's April 1 home defeat to Crystal Palace was followed by wins over Manchester City and Bournemouth that eased concerns of a late-season slump.

And he insisted the only satisfaction he took from reducing Chelsea's lead over Tottenham to an assailable four points came from boosting his own side's top four hopes.

Conte accepted that his team "deserved" to lose and said the outcome of the match was his fault for failing to sufficiently motivate his players. Herrera and Matteo Darmian did brilliant stifling jobs in man-marking Hazard and Pedro Rodriguez, respectively.

In a comment on social media, Capriles denied the charges and said the disqualification was illegal and politically motivated. The restiveness comes amid the country's deep humanitarian crisis sparked by an economic meltdown.

"To play this type of game from now and until the end we must have great enthusiasm, great motivation to try to reach the target".

"There are only six games left and we are still in a good position".

Mourinho indicated that he still expects Chelsea to win the league. A lot has been said about how we want to finish fourth but. I think Arsenal here [a 1-1 draw], Tottenham [Hotspur] here [a 1-0 win], we played really well but today I think was a special performance because it was a special opponent: the leader, the way they play, and I think we played really well, very solid performance. But when they tried to play counterattack we were always in control.

Chelsea, which held a 13-point lead after beating Stoke 2-1 on March 18, has lost two of its last four games. And United center backs Marcos Rojo and Eric Bailly succeeded in riling the combustible Diego Costa, who was booked in the first half and played on the edge throughout.

United were ahead on seven minutes after Herrera had split the Chelsea defence with a ideal pass to Rashford, who swept home past Asmir Begovic.

Despite his recent run of games, the former England global has only started six Premier League matches for Manchester United this season and could seek pastures new in order to get consistent game-time during the final part of his playing career.
