No Handball Decision Gave Manchester United Momentum, Bemoans Chelsea Legend

Manchester United

The 19-year-old England worldwide played a key role in United's 2-0 win over Premier League leaders Chelsea on Sunday, scoring for the second game running to boost their top-four hopes.

Chelsea's April 1 home defeat to Crystal Palace was followed by wins over Manchester City and Bournemouth that eased concerns of a late-season slump.

Manchester United reopened the Premier League title race on Sunday with a 2-0 victory over leaders Chelsea that leaves second-placed Tottenham Hotspur just four points behind.

The United boss expects Rashford to flourish next term and team-mate Darmian believes the teenager can become one of the best in the world.

"He is a very good in every part of the game, he has a very good shot, movement, speed".

"Sometimes for a striker, it is normal there is a not as good period [scoring goals] but I hope he continues like this, like against Chelsea, because it helps the team to reach the objective".

'I want to say I was convinced even before the cup [last month's FA Cup tie between the sides] that controlling the two players that played behind Diego [Costa],' said the former Chelsea manager.

Chelsea have been the Premier League's dominant team all season but the Blues struggled to cope with an energetic Manchester United display at Old Trafford.

Antonio Conte adopted a 3-5-3 formation that sees up to five players defending for Chelsea but the pace and power of Hazard makes them very risky on the counter attack.

"We deserve to win a lot of games but sometimes it is not possible to win and we draw".

"He is still very, very young and I think he is very important for us".

"We have to think that there are six finals from now until the end of the season".

"Today he scored and it was at the beginning of the match which gave the team confidence and stability".

"Tottenham are in good form, are playing very well, show great enthusiasm and we must have the same".

"I think it can be a good night on Thursday but we have to try to win because it is the most important thing".
