United 2 Chelsea 1 - Mourinho`s Views

Jose Mourinho would have taken great pleasure from the win against Chelsea this afternoon, but more for the fact that United regained second than beating his former club according to the boss.

Talking to the Match of the Day Team, after the win, Jose had this to say,

'It is not special because it is Chelsea, it is very special as we beat the champions, who are a fantastic team, who are very difficult to beat and because this is the three points that keep us in second place which is the place we are fighting for.

'It opens a little gap, not much to Chelsea, and it is a very important result for us. It feels special as the players gave everything. It is not possible to win against a team with the quality of Chelsea without the quality we gave.

'We did not start well, Chelsea started much better, but we found our position on the pitch and found our concentration and we grew up throughout the game.'

That`s one way of putting it I guess!

A case of three points being better than what was, at times, a disappointing performance with Chelsea bossing the game.
