Ashley Young unsure on Manchester United future

Ashley Young unsure on Manchester United future

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said his risky tactical approach had been vindicated after his side stunned Premier League leaders Chelsea 2-0 on Sunday.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said he was to blame for his team's 2-0 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, saying he had failed to motivate his players enough.

Ander Herrera, who shadowed Hazard, set up Marcus Rashford for United's seventh-minute opener and netted the hosts' second goal with a deflected strike early in the second half.

The first of those was a comfortable 4-0 league win for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in October before the Blues narrowly secured a 1-0 victory in the FA Cup in March thanks to N'Golo Kante's goal.

Mourinho's team are six points behind third-placed Liverpool in fifth, having played two games fewer, while neighbours Manchester City sit four points ahead of United, having played one game more - with the two clubs due to meet at the Etihad Stadium on April 27.

United "showed more desire, more ambition, more motivation", said the Italian. Matteo Darmian's place on the left side of defense served to make Pedro's life a living hell, and Ander Herrera was instructed to do this same with Eden Hazard. Today we deserved to lose the game. "Getting the points has massive importance so we've just got to keep going in the league and the Europa League as well", he said.

The liquor baron, however, fled the country days before the apex court took up the case against him. Mallya, in a message on Twitter, called the news of his arrest "usual Indian media hype".

"If someone thinks it's normal for Chelsea to win the title, we started as underdogs after 10th place last season. I had the feeling before this match, but now I'm totally convinced, that with 11 players at Stamford Bridge we would be playing against Tottenham at Wembley this weekend". They struggled to cope with us defensively and they struggled to cope with us with Marcus and other target points we had on the pitch.

Mourinho was asked how it feels to go 22 games unbeaten in the league and, while expressing frustration that has not led to a title challenge, believes it can be the foundation for one if they add a touch more quality to what he considers a strong squad.

"Can they go and beat Chelsea next week in a semi-final and get that real big moment?"

There hasn't been a player this exciting at Manchester United since an 18-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo signed for the club from Sporting back in 2003. "If we can play like we did against Chelsea, then I am sure we can get through against Anderlecht and into the semifinals".

"I think the defeat is down to a combination of things".

But Chelsea does have a more favourable run-in than Tottenham.
