Manchester United v Chelsea confirmed team news below

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was too exhausted to start the game against Chelsea, according to Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

United is four points off the Champions League berths and has a game in hand on fourth-place Manchester City.

"For me, it is just a game". "This season Chelsea are a much better team than us".

Chelsea could achieve a league double over Manchester United for the first time since the 2009/10 season.

"I want to win first then I say where it compares to other achievements in my career". "Be patient and have great will to fight. otherwise we must clap another team", he added.

Ander Herrera scores one and sets up another to help Manchester United to a 2-0 win over Chelsea at Old Trafford. When quizzed how far away the United were from being the best team in the country, the 54-year-old said, "Far. because the best team, in the Premier League, is the team with more points".

People had been stranded at two transit points on the outskirts of Aleppo after an agreement between the warring sides stalled. Abdurrahman and opposition activist Hussam Mahmoud, who is from Madaya, said the evacuation has been delayed.

Life is nowhere near as rosy for Mourinho, who must weigh his priorities ahead of Thursday's return leg against Anderlecht.

Mourinho's pre-match claims that his players were exhausted and a team selection that left out talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic also seemed to play into the visitors' hands.

"I think Jose's beef was probably with the players in the Chelsea dressing room because he will know the ones who were conspiring against him last season", Souness told the Sunday Mirror. Liverpool's Roberto Firmino, right, celebrates with teammate Philippe Coutinho after scoring his side's first goal during their English Premier League soccer match against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns, West Bromwich, Eng.

"Players" feedback are very important to us. Wayne Rooney and Ashley Young did train before the match and will be hoping to be fit but Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Juan Mata still remain injured.

"We stay in a great position, but Tottenham are in good form and playing very well and with enthusiasm".

"But today I think was a special performance because it's also a special opponent - the leaders, the way they play". Yet, if the Red Devils self-destruct (as they're known to do from time to time) it wouldn't the end of the world in the manager's eyes.
