Alvaro Morata broke the deadlock with a powerful header in the 55th minute of the Premier League clash and the Spaniard’s goal turned out to be the winner for Antonio Conte’s men.

The Red Devils grew in confidence as the second-half wore on, with a weary Chelsea putting more bodies behind the ball in the dying moments, and Mourinho accused his former side of parking the bus.

‘We changed the direction of our game, created chances to equalise but we couldn’t.’
