United's win over Chelsea enhanced their chances of securing a top-four finish in the league, leaving them four points behind fourth-place Manchester City with a game in hand.

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.

Mourinho had already admitted that this season was always going to be hard for the 19-year-old to replicate last term's form, but he is expecting the player to continue his development over the next 12 months.

Nevin has backed United to qualify for next season's Champions League after heaping praise on Mourinho for his tactics in his side's victory over his former club.

The report claims United are keen to open contract discussions with the in-form Herrera before the start of next season.

Rashford, 19, scored the opening goal in an impressive performance in United's 2-0 win against Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday following his selection as a striker ahead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"We gave them double problems - we gave them problems when they had the ball because we controlled very well, and we gave them problems when we recovered the ball because we were really sharp and fast and aggressive in our transitions, Mourinho said". He can be one of the top players, one of the most important players in the world, because he is very good in every part of the game.

'Do I think Anthony is a player with great potential?

"We know our characteristic", Darmian said. He was shown the exit door at Stamford Bridge, six months after he guided them to Premier League triumph in May 2015.

Eddie Howe's Bournemouth, who are 16th in the league, have slipped among the relegation threatened sides after a 4-0 defeat at Spurs on Saturday extended their winless run to four games.

"It won't be easy because I think Tottenham now are the best team and they are in great form and they have a lot of enthusiasm". Against Crystal Palace we didn't deserve to lose, but today we deserved to lose the game.

"We want to be pushing on". It's still the favorite to win the Europa League and has an away-goal edge over Anderlecht after the first leg of their quarterfinal.

"But you know you have to put in a shift to get a good performance".
