Conte: Chelsea now have 50-50 shot at title

It's on: EPL title race heats up as Chelsea loses at United

With six games remaining, the result will give Tottenham belief it can lift the trophy at the end of May.

"We have to think that there are six finals from now until the end", Conte told the press, according to ESPN FC.

But Chelsea does have a more favourable run-in than Tottenham.

Alonso's absence, in particular, unbalanced Chelsea, which put in its worst performance since a 3-0 loss to Arsenal in September that forced manager Antonio Conte into a season-defining switch to a 3-4-3 formation. "They showed more desire than us and more motivation, but in this case the fault is the coach". "I think we lost two games but these two games were totally different", Conte added.

Mourinho added that the key to beating Chelsea, whose lead over second-placed London rivals Tottenham Hotspur is just four points, was eliminating the threat they posed through Eden Hazard and Pedro working behind Diego Costa and also their effectiveness in wide positions on the counter-attack.

Chelsea was without first-choice goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who was injured, and wing back Marcos Alonso pulled out of the game during the warm-up after suffering from a virus during the week. "It means the coach was not able to transfer the right concentration, desire, ambition to win this game".

Dropping Ibrahimovic - United's top scorer this season with 28 goals - was another sign of that, but Mourinho insisted he wasn't prioritizing.

The three points took them into fifth spot, four points behind fourth-placed City.

The victory ended an eight-match winless run against Chelsea, which was their longest streak without a win against a single opponent.

"We have to react in the right way", he said.

"This is a game between two teams that are in contention to win the league this season".

"These three points were phenomenal".

Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera's goals were scored with United's first shots on target against the Blues. We need to realise it's not over, we need to realise there are points to play for, and we have to dig in. Manchester United's team manager Jose Mourinho reacts during the English Premier League soccer match between Manchester United and Chelsea at Old Trafford stadium in Manchester, Sunday, April 16, 2017.

"Everybody knows why - it is because we drew too many matches at home and we are paying the price".

"But while it is mathematically possible we have to go with everything we have".
