Mourinho hails Herrera and Darmian after sinking Chelsea

The 19-year-old England worldwide played a key role in United's 2-0 win over Premier League leaders Chelsea on Sunday, scoring for the second game running to boost their top-four hopes.

Martial has scored seven goals this term and been left out of the United squad entirely on occasions, including Sunday's impressive 2-0 win against Premier League leaders Chelsea.

Chelsea's loss on Sunday loss has brought the title race alive with second placed Tottenham trailing them by only four points.

However, Conte suggested the reason Chelsea lost was due to his failure to properly motivate his players against United, who they had already beaten in the league and FA Cup this season without conceding. "We did that at Stamford Bridge when we played with 11, with 10 it was more hard and today we controlled". We must have great enthusiasm to play these last six games, with patience and a great will to fight.

"It does", Neville told Sky Sports when asked if Chelsea's recent performances give a different complexion on the title run-in.

Conte described his side's closing games of the season as "six finals" but believes that Spurs have as good a chance of lifting the trophy as they do. "They have to keep pushing us and we have to keep pushing them". So far it has been okay for me but I still have to show I can give more.

Bizarrely, Chelsea continued in the same vein in the second half and it wasn't long before United doubled their lead through Ander Herrera. Chelsea have no looked this bad, at any point, since Antonio Conte switched his formation to a back three in September, and the Blues began a record setting form of run.

"Because the guy is growing up a lot and is getting hard matches and he was very good".

Rashford and Herrera both drew plaudits for their performances following the match with the 19-year-old forced to lead the line as Zlatan Ibrahimovic dropped to the bench due to fatigue.
