Ashley Young believes that Manchester United's dominant win against Premier League leaders Chelsea had been coming but now wants more of the same. I prefer the pressure to fight for the title.

"It's [my fault], because in this case I wasn't able to spur the right desire or motivation to play this kind of game".

Having tried similar tactics at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup quarter-final before Herrera was dismissed, Mourinho was relieved to see his plan work.

"I was convinced even before the Cup game that controlling the two players [Hazard and Pedro] who play behind Diego Costa. would create lots of problems [for Chelsea] and I repeat the same".

He said: "I think Tottenham now are the best team, they are in good form and have a lot of enthusiasm".

Additionally, their one shot in the first half was the lowest they had mustered in a first 45 minutes this season. "The league is open and we have a 50 percent (chance) to win the league". We must understand this and find the right motivation.

"I will decide on my future in due course, but for now I am committed to helping the team achieve success this season", he said.

"We have one month to go, it's many games we play", Ibrahimovic said in quotes reported by the Daily Telegraph ahead of Sunday's clash with Chelsea.

Despite their win, the Red Devils remain outsiders to make the top four and will likely have to rely on their Europa League campaign if they're to play Champions League football next term.

"The same way I know what the players like, I think the players also know what I like".

At the hands of Jose Mourinho's men, Chelsea suffered a heavy 2-goal defeat.

For United the victory puts them back in contention for a top-four finish with them now sitting just four points behind fourth place Manchester City, who they face at Eastlands in 10 days time.

"Chelsea are the best counter-attacking team in the country and we controlled them very well".

Mourinho indicated that he still expects Chelsea to win the league.

"There are only six games left and we are still in a good position".

"I have to keep working, performing and giving what the manager wants me to give", Herrera told Manchester United's official website.
