It's on: EPL title race heats up as Chelsea loses at United

Graeme Souness is still expecting to see Chelsea win the Premier League this season - despite their 2-0 loss to Manchester United on Sunday.

Mourinho stopped short of describing it as his best at the club so far, but with the way United stormed at the league leaders with fittingly sweeping goals from Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera, it may well have been his best in nearly three years.

And Mourinho clearly relished getting one over them at Old Trafford, delighting United fans by pointing to their badge as he walked into the tunnel.

"Tottenham is in good form and playing with enthusiasm, we must find the same".

Mourinho, though, praised the performance of 19-year-old forward Rashford and his teammates for a dominant Old Trafford showing.

On Rashford, the manager said: "He played fantastically well. We must know this".

The England global was on the mark this past weekend with a crucial goal in the 2-0 win over Chelsea, with the result keeping United's hopes of a top four finish in the Premier League alive. We gave them problems when they had the ball because we controlled very well and we gave them problems when we recovered the ball because we were really sharp and fast and aggressive in our transitions.

'I don't think a lot of people saw that scoreline coming or the type of game to be honest.

Yet the former England winger - who turned down a move to Chinese side Shandong in February - says he still doesn't know if he will be a United player at the start of next season.

Chelsea have a favourable run-in but Conte is wary having dropped points in recent weeks, including a costly slip-up at home to Crystal Palace at the beginning of April.

He said: "Normally you win the title if you are 22 matches unbeaten", he added".

Marcus Rashford opened the scoring for the hosts seven minutes into the first half and Ander Herrera scored the second goal just four minutes into the second half, reports EFe.

"The result means we keep two windows open to play Champions League football", Mourinho said.
