Mourinho: I found a way to cancel out Chelsea

Will David Moyes men spring a surprise on the Reds

Jose Mourinho hailed an important victory as Manchester United opened up a six-point gap over Chelsea in the race for the top four by beating their rivals at Old Trafford.

Willian has only completed 90 minutes of Premier League action on six occasions this season despite being arguably their best player. Both of those wins have come under the Portuguese and while United put in arguably their best display of 2016/17 against Chelsea last season, the latest win has come under much more hard circumstances.

Watford edged past Everton in Saturday's late kick-off with captain Troy Deeney grabbing the only goal of the game while Bournemouth came from two goals down to take a point as they entertained Newcastle United.

But despite Mourinho's protestations, Neville, a key part of United's defence during Sir Alex Ferguson's tenure, wants to see the current stars come to the fore and help knit a vastly talented squad together during the dying stages of the campaign.

For the best part of 73 minutes, McTominay was on Hazard like a cheap suit, the only lapse in concentration subsequently led to Chelsea's opener when the Belgian forward slipped in the in-form Willian to put Conte's men in front.

The Brazilian began a counterattack from his own box after heading clear a free kick. Once they did, the equalizer arrived. Romelu Lukaku was involved once again.

"But we found a way to play against them, and we had a good control of Eden Hazard".

Jose Mourinho's men were mainly dominant in the second half of the game and were rewarded with a second goal in the 75th minute.

Defeat leaves the Blues in fifth place after Tottenham beat Crystal Palace 1-0 earlier on Sunday. "But what he also does now, for the winning goal, I've always felt he's just a goalscorer, there isn't too much more to his play, he's not great at hold-up at times and he doesn't work the channels, but this (his assist) just answers me and plenty of his critics - there is more to his game". But we kept going until the end and eventually got our rewards.

After starting, and completing the 90 minutes, against Bournemouth and Huddersfield at home Sunday presented the Lancaster-born footballer with his biggest Premier League challenge yet in United's fabled red jersey.

It was Kane's 35th goal of the season and made him the EPLs leading scorer this season with 24, one ahead of Liverpool's Mo Salah.
