What Mourinho's note to Matic said

What Mourinho's note to Matic said

"That's the situation around me", Lukaku said, after scoring his first league goal for United against a side now in the top eight.

Romelu Lukaku on Sunday quietened questions over his ability to deliver against the best opposition by scoring and setting up the victor for Jesse Lingard as Manchester United came from behind to beat Chelsea 2-1.

The creator was Romelu Lukaku, his neat cross finding the substitute, after the No 9's first goal for United against top-six opposition had cancelled out Willian's opener.

Ex-Chelsea man Lukaku had a shot off a scissor kick tipped over by Thibaut Courtois, then showed a different facet of his game to create the victor by curling over a cross that was headed home by Lingard.

Understandably, the football betting odds have City as the 1.60 favourites to win the game while Chelsea can be backed at best odds of 5.40 to take three points back to London.

"I'm happy in Manchester and that's it. We showed our qualities and our desire in the second half".

With 10 games to go, United are now with 59 points in 28 matches while Chelsea dropped to fifth place with 53 points.

That is not Mourinho's only problem, however, as he continues to be at loggerheads with United's club-record signing over Pogba's best position.

"We are talking about a top player, a fantastic player", said Conte, who coached Pogba at Juventus.

The visitors were within a whisker of opening the scoring after five minutes when Eden Hazard found Marcos Alonso, whose first-time cross was volleyed against the bar by Alvaro Morata. When starting, a player has a different kind of preparation, so to be on the bench and come on even without warming up in the 15th or 20th minute is not easy and I think he had a very positive game for us.

"I'm really enjoying my football at the moment, it's great to be playing in the Premier League and the Champions League regularly, but at the end of the day it's a really good three points for the team".

'I'm talking Manchester City, Chelsea obviously, Spurs, you name it.

Herrera was sent-off after just 35 minutes as Chelsea edged an FA Cup tie 1-0 in March before United responded by winning 2-0 Old Trafford in April.

We were tied 1-1 at the break and the Red Devils complete the comeback in the second half.

"You expect a bit more respect but it's the situation we're in", he told Britain's Press Association.
