United can end season strongly after Chelsea win, says Young

19 Avril 2017

The Blues' lead at the top of the Premier League was cut to just four points after defeat at Manchester United, combined with Spurs home win over Bournemouth.

The "real pressure" is on Tottenham in the Premier League title race as they can't afford to drop any more points, according to Chelsea legend Pat Nevin.

"We expected them to start fast and we had to try and control that, and we never did". What's more, they showed the mental strength to overcome Harry Kane's injury, and when he returned, reintegrated him without missing a beat. "It is very simple and in this case the fault is with the coach".

"We lost two games, but these two games were totally different".

The Brazilian converted a flick-on from Lucas Leiva to seal Liverpool's fifth win in their last seven games.

We need new centrebacks who don't go parading up the field when we're a goal down because we just conceded and really need another one. "Otherwise we must clap another team". "They play courageous football, but it's also clever".

"We have to react in the right way", he said.

"Everything about them impresses me; the players, the manager, their attitude and the fantastic football they produce for their fans", he added. We are lucky to have the pressure.

The race for the top four is also looking lively.

Then comes a trip to Goodison Park to face Everton, who they annihilated in a rampant 5-0 win - I can't imagine it will be that easy for them this time around. "But now we are focusing on fighting our opponents when we play".

Real Madrid want to raise £160m in the summer - and they expect a large amount of that figure to come from the sales of Alvaro Morata and James Rodriguez. "But we can't control what Chelsea do". It was the first time they have failed to register one in a Premier League match since September 2007. "These three points were phenomenal".

"The second reason is they are the leader". Starting in his place was 19-year-old Marcus Rashford, who, with his direct running and impressive work rate terrorised the Chelsea defence all game long, scoring a well-taken opener for good measure as well.

"We said before the game that we wanted to keep our momentum going and not give anything away", Kane said.

"But it's a great feeling to know that it's hard for us to lose a match, people fight until the end".

Despite having been barracked with chants of "Judas" during United's 1-0 defeat at Chelsea in the FA Cup last month, Mourinho said victory over his former club carried no special significance.
