Antonio Conte has said that Chelsea now have a "50 percent probability" of winning the Premier League title after a 2-0 defeat against Manchester United on Sunday reduced their lead at the top of the table to four points.
21-year-old Martial has made 41 appearances for club and country this season, scoring eight goals and chipping in with four assists.
Jose Mourinho has told Anthony Martial that the forward must adapt to what his manager wants if he is to succeed at Manchester United.
The report claims United are keen to open contract discussions with the in-form Herrera before the start of next season.
"We didn't play a good game and United deserved to win the game", said Conte.
A charge often levelled at Pogba this season (not without foundation, it must be said) is that he lets the flow of the game get away from him at times, that he tries too hard to make an impression.
"I am very happy".
The Italy worldwide, linked with a summer exit, put the display down to an attitude that he says can not waver with the Europa League quarter-final second against Anderlecht looming large.
Rashford's display suggested he deserves to be given more chances through the centre, where United's top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic - rested on Sunday - has started nearly every game this season.
"Courtois had an injury during the middle of the week and for this reason he wasn't available but I think it is right to focus on the game and not to find excuses".
At Old Trafford the Blues were defeated 2-0.
"We want to be pushing on". "Of course, this kind of game gives us confidence". Yet these are the questions that have begun to persist, and now that he has begun to answer them, the last few games of the season have immeasurably brighter prospects.
Under Mourinho, the 20-time English champions won the EFL Cup in February and are in contention to win the Europa League.
"We know our characteristic", Darmian said.
Tottenham are on a run of seven straight league wins - their best sequence in 50 years - and Conte knows his side are in for a battle beneath the Wembley arch.
"When you beat the leader, it is obviously a very good feeling because you feel you are as good or better than them".
