Chelsea's Title Charge Threatens United's Unbeaten Run Sunday

Chelsea's Title Charge Threatens United's Unbeaten Run Sunday

Liverpool legend Graeme Souness is convinced Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho feels by betrayed by Chelsea.

The Red devils go into this match on the back of a 1-1 draw against Anderlecht in the Europa League.

And it what could be concerning words for United fans, the retired Swedish worldwide says he is "tired". "Absolutely", Ibrahimovic said. "Today I wasn't feeling good in the sense of I was feeling exhausted".

"But today I think was a special performance because it's also a special opponent - the leaders, the way they play".

"I think this game is like any other game and for us the most important thing is the three points", the Italian manager told a news conference on Friday.

"When you play for a big club the pressure is always there", he said. But we are still grinding, still pushing, because we have this Europa League and the end of the Premier League. "We fight for it".

To be fair to Jose, he isn't wrong, but everybody that's been in European competition could use that excuse before playing Chelsea this season, it isn't as if their lack of Champions League football this term has been a secret. It won't be easy because I think Tottenham now is the best team and they are in good form and they have a lot of enthusiasm. A few days before, United strolled past Sunderland as they ran out 3-0 winners, and will be looking to close the gap on the teams above them come Sunday afternoon. If they do, they will end their season on a 13 game winning streak.

"The league is open and we have a 50 percent (chance) to win the league", said Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, who blamed himself for the loss to United.

Chelsea have won the two previous encounters between the sides this season, thumping United 4-0 in the league in October before eliminating them from the FA Cup in March. I prefer to play for the title instead of not fighting for the title and being calm. Tottenham will benefit in that their next four games are all based in London but they need more than that if they want to win the Premier League. Manchester United fans give us their views.

He praised Blues midfielder N'Golo Kante, saying he "can run for 11 players". "I'm pleased for them for this nomination, but I'm pleased for all my players because they are doing a good job".
