Chelsea vs Manchester United: A beautiful header by Alvaro Morata ended a six-game goal drought by giving Chelsea a 1-0 victory over Manchester United in the Premier League clash on Sunday on a miserable return to Stamford Bridge for Jose Mourinho. United heads into the international break still second but now eight points behind leader Manchester City, which beat Arsenal 3-1. United was outplayed by the technically superior Chelsea, who were clearly the better side of the two. Here are the key highlights of the Premier League clash between Chelsea and United.
Chelsea vs Manchester United:
Chelsea: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Cahill; Zappacosta, Bakayoko, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso; Hazard, Morata
Manchester United: De Gea, Bailly, Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Young, Herrera, Matic, Mkhitaryan, Lukaku, Rashford
Antonio Conte: We are struggling a lot, because we are facing a lot of important problems. To solve these problems is not simple. In this moment you can see if you are a winner or a loser. It’s important to show our character, to be strong, to face the problem in the right way.
Jose Mourinho: I have to admit it’s a little bit different but in the end I want to win like I did with Inter. They want to win like they did last season and it’s just one more day. In a couple of years it will be even more natural and in four or five years probably no one will remember that I was Chelsea manager and it becomes absolutely normal. It isn’t a big thing. It’s normal, it’s football, it’s professionalism. One day you are in one club, the next day you’re in another club.
