Manchester United down Chelsea to blow title race open

Asmir Begovic is convinced that Premier League leaders Chelsea can bounce back from Sunday's disappointing 2-0 defeat at Manchester United.

Manchester United's 2-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday would have served as a flawless confidence booster ahead of their potential even more important clash with Anderlecht in the Europa League on Thursday.

Chelsea were 13 points clear when they beat Stoke City on 18 March and Conte said he had to take the blame for United's 2-0 win, admitting his players had not been focused or motivated enough to win.

Jose Mourinho's squad avenged its 1-4 humiliation at Chelsea's Stamford Bridge in the first half of the season and the 0-1 FA Cup quarter-finals defeat against Antonio Conte's Blues.

Mourinho asked Ander Herrera to man-mark Eden Hazard and he did it brilliantly, but United's game-plan went much further than that. United travel to Burnley after the Anderlecht game before the Manchester derby on April 27.

"He gives them legs and I think he could play with Ibrahimovic".

"We know our characteristic", Darmian said.

He added: "Do I think Anthony is a player with great potential? Yes". That's the way I think. "I am very thankful to him (Mourinho). But mentally he is excellent", Mourinho said.

"I don't know whether the game should be played behind closed doors or somewhere else, but it would be very unsafe for us to play with the same supporters (as in the first leg)", he said. I prefer to play for the title instead of don't fight for the title and stay calm. "I don't think a lot of people expected it but we did". "Otherwise we deserve another thing".

"United will be very pleased with themselves today and they should be". Last season Chelsea had no pressure in 10th place and you play calm, you are happy.

"I think we played really well, a very solid performance".

"It won't be easy because I think Tottenham now are the best team and they are in great form and they have a lot of enthusiasm".

Mourinho insisted he took no extra satisfaction from beating his old club.

The England worldwide was seen picking up Manchester United attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard in the area just before Ander Herrera's shot deflected past Asmir Begovic.
