Manchester United 2-1 Chelsea, Premier League: Post-match reaction

Jose Mourinho comes up against his former club Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday

Mourinho enjoyed two trophy-laden spells in west London, bringing three Premier League titles, three League Cup's and a single FA Cup triumph to Stamford Bridge, becoming Chelsea's most successful manager along the way.

Reported by football365, Mourinho said: "It's any normal game and probably to play Liverpool in a couple of weeks' time means more".

The Belgium striker then crossed for substitute Jesse Lingard to head home the winner for the Red Devils in the 75th minute.

The Belgian striker's goal to cancel out Willian's opener for the visitors was the first time Lukaku had scored in seven games against top six sides this season.

Man United briefly looked like Barcelona from 2009 as they wove together a number of intricate passes to slice through the Chelsea back line and leave Romelu Lukaku with a simple finish.

Manchester United, meanwhile, struggled to find consistent form in the top flight last term as they ended up in sixth place in the table.

In the 86th minute of the tightly contested fixture, Fabregas chipped the ball which was seized by Morata and drilled past David de Gea.

Chelsea continued to dominate possession, and it took almost half an hour before United produced their first goalscoring chance.

"I thought it weren't going to be our day, because we had a few chances, especially me, and Serge Aurier had one at the end too, but we kept going until the end and eventually got our rewards".

He has been selected for United's league clash with Chelsea, however, alongside Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic in what appears to be a 4-3-3 setup for Jose Mourinho's side.

On his scoring ratio to date, he added: "It's not bad, but you can always improve".

Chelsea broke the deadlock with a rapid counter-attack movement engineered by Willian. Sanchez picks up the ball at the top of the area, dribbles left and cuts an aerial cross back to Lukaku, who attempts a spectacular overhead kick!

"I think that's what me and Antonio want to show to everyone and the handshake before and after the match is an example that everything in football, you have to move and respect each other".

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, after the match called for increased use of video assistance (VAR) after a late effort by Alvaro Morata was disallowed by the narrowest of offside decisions, condemning his team to defeat.
