Mourinho: United Controlled Chelsea

Jose Mourinho has praised his side for their display in the 2-0 win over table topping Chelsea.

The Portuguese manager has hailed his side for controlling the game, with Rashford and Ander Herrera scoring the goals.

Mourinho fielded the same team that lost to Chelsea in the FA Cup, and is pleased to get the win this time around.

When asked what made him go with counter-attacking tactics, Mourinho told Sky Sports: “The same thing that made me go to Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup with the same tactics. Maybe we didn’t rest [players] we just chose the team that we thought was the best team.

“That game was totally controlled when we played with 11 players, and only the decision that made us play with 10 players gave Chelsea a chance to be dominant.

“We knew that playing this way would be very difficult for them.”
