Speaking after yesterday's defeat, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte told Sky Sports that he is more than aware of how Spurs can threaten their grip of the title. We fight until the end. Mourinho's side have an advantage as they have a game in hand, while they are also fighting to win the Europa League.
The fixture list suggests that Chelsea should still be able to finish above challengers Tottenham Hotspur.
The only top-six side the Blues have to face is Everton, while Tottenham will take on both Arsenal and Manchester United.
"There will be more pressure on them, the closer they get to Chelsea also". So far it has been OK for me, but I still have to show I can give more. "In this case the fault is of the coach". We have to dust ourselves off and prepare for a huge semi-final, and then we go again with some important home games coming up.
United have not lost in the league since October, but remain outside the top four. The Red Devils now stand at the fifth position with 60 points.
United had lost twice to Chelsea, in the league and FA Cup, and in some ways this vast team performance was in response to those losses.
"We don't know what can happen in the Europa League, so these three points were phenomenal".
Perhaps even more pleasing for Mourinho was seeing his attackers take their chances; especially without Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the line up.
Marcus Rashford opened the scoring early on which was followed by Man of the Match Ander Herrera'sdeflected strike at the beginning of the second half.
"But I am just concentrating on Manchester United and wanting to play well here".
England manager Gareth Southgate was present during Sunday's match but Young remains focused on performing for his club rather than hoping for a call-up to the national squad.
"I have concern because we have to work together and find quickly the right ambition to win this title", said Conte.
"It was the same tactics as when we went to Stamford Bridge in the cup".
Liverpool continues to climb after Roberto Firmino led the team to a 1-0 victory against West Bromwich Albion.
