Chelsea have a 50-50 chance of 'miracle' title win, says Conte

This win, in fact, offered the type of intensity that first justified it.

Right now, Manchester United fans couldn't care less if the Easter Bunny slapped them across the face because Mourinho's men have beaten Chelsea by 2-0 at Old Trafford.

Player ratingsManchester United: David De Gea 7, Antonio Valencia 7, Eric Bailly 7, Marcos Rojo 8, Matteo Darmian 7, Marouane Fellaini 7, Ander Herrera 8, Paul Pogba 7, Ashley Young 7, Jesse Lingard 7, Marcus Rashford 8. It was that emphatic, that reminiscent of his best.

"I think today there's no way they can dwell on that now because they've got an important run-in and now it's game on, because it's four points".

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

"We knew that playing this way would be very hard for them". Maybe I'm being naive and not taking into account those odd happenings we see from time to time (like Leicester) but I need some more time before being convinced Chelsea is in danger of losing the Premier League.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has an average shot accuracy of 55% in the Premier League this season.

"We don't know what can happen in the Europa League, so these three points were phenomenal". It doesn't matter if the leader is Chelsea or another - we beat them convincingly.

United had conceded five goals and failed to score in its two losses to Chelsea this season " one in the league (4-0) and one in the FA Cup (1-0) " but Mourinho got his own back against his former club this time.

Chelsea went into Sunday's clash at Old Trafford four points ahead of Tottenham with a game in hand, but squandered the chance to restore their seven-point advantage.

"I have the same question downstairs".

Marcus Rashford - 9 - Splendid display as he finished superbly for the first, then ran Chelsea's defense ragged.

Asked about Conte's remark that Chelsea's players lacked desire, he replied: "I agree". He is not scoring enough goals.

"They've been fantastic, they've been winning games regularly".

"I think they [United] deserved to win because they showed more desire than us, more motivation", Conte said.

"Normally you win the title if you are 22 matches unbeaten and we are struggling to finish top four. Why?"

"Why? Everybody knows why because we lost too many points at home. The two games were totally different - we didn't deserve to lose against Palace - but today [Sunday] we deserved to lose", he told a post-match news conference. "We fight for it".
