Jose Mourinho suffered the second biggest defeat of his career against his former club Chelsea on Saturday. The United boss saw his team lose 4-0 at Stamford Bridge and all in all, it really wasn’t a happy return for the man who was once the Special One at Chelsea.
Mourinho seemed particularly unhappy with Conte celebrating the win on the touchline and was clearly offended by his actions; this is what he told Conte after the match:
It really was a miserable affair for Jose, as United offered little threat throughout the game; the few chances they had were squandered. Perhaps their best opportunity fell to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who put his first-half header over the bar, when it seemed easier to score.
As for Antonio Conte, he will care little about anything beyond the result, which puts Chelsea firmly back in the title hunt – the Blues are now a single point off top stop, currently held by Manchester City.
City, Arsenal and Tottenham could only manage draws in their respective games this weekend. Only Liverpool – of the so-called ‘title-contenders’ – managed to pick up three points, not including Chelsea of course.
It really looks like this season will go down to the proverbial wire.
Jose: “When you lose 1-0 or 4-0, you lose 3 points. We are 6 points off the top now, we need to start winning games. It is not easy.”
