Man City extend Premier League lead, Chelsea beat United

Hazard explains why he craves Morata connection ahead of Man Utd clash

After Manchester City's 3-1 win against Arsenal earlier in the day the gap between the two Manchester sides now stands at eight points.

Alvaro Morata's 55th-minute goal at Stamford Bridge was enough to give reigning champions Chelsea victory and leave United eight points behind in-form leaders Manchester City.

The 24-year-old moved to Manchester United in a £75m deal from Everton in the summer transfer window ahead of a potential return to Chelsea. "They demonstrated to me that they really wanted me". The Italian was subsequently asked to clarify those comments, and added: "It's very simple, no?"

"I think it was two teams there who can defend and who have got very good attacking players", said the England global, left out of Gareth Southgate's latest squad for matches against Germany and Brazil. I trust in these two young players'.

"Maybe in the future I can decide a different way or continue in this way". It's only a tactical decision.

Conte warned his other players that being dropped could happen to them to and no one is guaranteed a place in the starting 11 or squad. It's normal. I repeat: I have to put my face to every situation and then sometimes to make important decisions.

"Manchester United vs Chelsea, shake his hand, all done and dusted and then go and celebrate with your players if you wish to do so".

"I think the game was even in the first half".

David Luiz's future at Chelsea is in the balance after Antonio Conte failed to provide guarantees the defender would remain at the club.

The win was the flawless response to their 3-0 drubbing at Roma in the Champions League and Conte was delighted to see his players bounce back. The Brazilian must now prove he warrants inclusion in the side that travels to West Bromwich Albion after the worldwide break by impressing in training over the next fortnight.
