Man Utd Plotting Raid On Chelsea As Mourinho Eyes Reunion

Ander Herrera scored one goal, set up another and executed the flawless man-marking job on Eden Hazard to set up Manchester United's 2-0 win over Chelsea that opened up the Premier League title race on Sunday.

Goals from Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera gave Mourinho's United a deserved and unexpectedly comfortable victory to leave the Blues just four points clear of Tottenham at the top of the Premier League.

At one point, Chelsea held an opportunity to win the league by a record margin, and set the total season points record.

"With Liverpool and Manchester City victories, if we don't win then goodbye Premier League", Mourinho said.

But despite Herrera's chief role as a stifler, he created United's seventh-minute opener, albeit in contentious circumstances.

Lampard also felt the absence of Thibaut Courtois and Marcos Alonso hit Chelsea hard.

Barring Lance Stephenson simultaneously injuring the entire Cavs starting lineup at once, IN is not going to win this series. Pacers: Glenn Robinson III returned after missing the past 12 games with a strained left calf.

The teenager was among the players who earned praise from the Manchester United boss after beating Chelsea.

I'm sure the Blues would rather sell Willian overseas if he does leave this summer but they did agree to sell Juan Mata to United so perhaps they won't stand in Willian's way if he makes it clear he wants to head to Old Trafford.

Referee Robert Madley was soon the focus of the home side's ire as Diego Costa avoided sanction for needlessly shoving Eric Bailly - but the combustible striker was booked for a challenge on the centre-back later in the half.

Rashford scored United's opening goal with a cool finish and was a constant threat to the Chelsea defence with his pace as he started up-front alongside Jesse Lingard in the absence of rested Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Today, Man Utd are after Chelsea attacker Willian...

Any hopes the visitors had of masterminding a turnaround vanished within four minutes of kick-off in the second half as Herrera doubled United's lead.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte sent on Cesc Fabregas for Victor Moses, with Pedro moving to wing-back, but still the league leaders toiled, Pedro twice curling shots over De Gea's bar.
