Gary Neville coaches England versus Turkey at the Etihad

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has said that he knew the best tactical plan, that would see his team defeat Premier League leaders, Chelsea.

Ander Herrera, who shadowed Hazard, set up Marcus Rashford for United's seventh-minute opener and netted the hosts' second goal with a deflected strike early in the second half.

It was a sweet moment for United manager Jose Mourinho, who had suffered a 4-0 thrashing against Chelsea in October on his first return to the club since being sacked last season.

Manchester United's Ashley Young insisted he still had "fire in my belly" after getting back into the first team at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils are four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, with a trip to the Etihad Stadium on the horizon on April 27.

While United's hopes of making the top four will be boosted by the win, the major impact will be felt in north London where Spurs will sense a chance to chase down Chelsea's four-point lead in the final six games of the season.

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 knew that playing this way would be very hard for them".

Goalkeeper Ben Foster went forward for a corner only for Liverpool to break.

"It is still possible to finish in the top four and we have to fight for it", he said. "It means the coach was not able to transfer the right concentration, desire, ambition to win this game".

Mourinho reserved praise for referee Bobby Madley's performance, adding: "I don't want to, maybe because I win you think I'm going to say that because I win but it's not because I win, and this young referee makes me very happy. I think we played really well, a very solid performance", said Mourinho.

"Tottenham is in good form and playing with enthusiasm".

The Spain worldwide also contributed by doubling United's advantage with a deflected strike just four minutes after half-time.

Under Mourinho, the 20-time English champions won the EFL Cup in February and are in contention to win the Europa League.

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