Ander Herrera explains Jose Mourinho's impact at Manchester United

Antonio Conte's men failed to register a single shot on target for the first time since September 2007 as United completely dominated and ran out 2-0 winners thanks to goals from Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed he is feeling the effects of being Manchester United's main man in a hectic first season at Old Trafford. "It's very hard. I think there's still a place for Zlatan". "The league is open and we have a 50 percent probability to win [the title]". We've got to appreciate his game, because, I truly believe this, it's more likely that we'll see another player like Messi before we see another player with such abnormal footballing qualities like Fellaini.

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 pressure is normal", he added.

"I prefer to fight for the title instead of don't fight for the title and stay calm".


The Blues' run-in also looks a little kinder, with home games against Southampton, Middlesbrough, Watford and Sunderland - but a real test to come at Everton. "We are doing a great job, a miracle if you consider what happened last season".

Nigerian global, Victor Moses, lasted for 54 minutes on the pitch before he was replaced by Cesc Fabregas; but neither of the two players could influence the game in favour of Chelsea.

And boss Conte pointed to what he felt have been contentious decisions against his side in matches with Stoke City, Crystal Palace and Bournemouth.

"We deserve to win a lot of games but sometimes it is not possible to win and we draw". We weren't at it, but we have a lot of character and can bounce back.

Manchester United won against Chelsea in the Premier League at the weekend. We have a four-point advantage and at the start of the season we would have taken it at this stage. We must understand this and find the right motivation. "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.
