Man United beats Chelsea 2-0 to open up EPL title race

Man United beats Chelsea 2-0 to open up EPL title race

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic he is happy to accept any criticism handed down by manager Jose Mourinho.

Liverpool are unbeaten since losing at Leicester in late February and now lead City by two points, although Pep Guardiola's team have a game in hand in the race for an automatic spot in the Champions League group stage.

"That game was totally controlled when we played with 11 players and only the [refereeing] decision that made us play with 10 players for all the second half, plus 10 minutes in the first half, gave Chelsea a chance to be dominant. I think we played really well, a very solid performance", said Mourinho.

Chelsea mustered just one shot in the first half against the Red Devils, their lowest total in a Premier League first half this season.

Manchester United face Chelsea on Sunday with a burden of an eight match winless streak against the Blues.

United fans arriving at Old Trafford would doubtless have been concerned to be without a man who has scored 17 league goals this season. Palace may sit 15th but they aren't playing like a 15th place team.

"I think Jose's beef was probably with the players in the Chelsea dressing room because he will know the ones who were conspiring against him last season", Souness told the Sunday Mirror.

"It's a bit hard, especially for some players.I think for some of the boys it is not a big problem to play match after match with two days' difference. I'm pleased for them for this nomination, but I'm pleased for all my players because they are doing a good job". Has been very important for United's breaks around the middle third but isn't racking up the stats to keep people from talking about his price.

Ahead of the game, Mourinho said: "He's exhausted - very tired".

"We don't train. We just recover from matches".

"If we criticise any of our players when we're coming to sell them again then the public and the rest of football has a bad impression of that player".
