This could be monumental in Tottenham title run-in v Chelsea — BBC pundit

This could be monumental in Tottenham title run-in v Chelsea — BBC pundit

Manchester United's English striker Marcus Rashford shoots but misses the target during the English Premier League football match between Manchester United and Chelsea at Old Trafford in Manchester, north west England, on April 16, 2017.

Chelsea were not good enough against Manchester United, and while most of the pundits called the players out on it, you usually don't expect players to come out and admit that they've been below par.

Before Manchester United's 2-0 win over Chelsea, the Red Devils' best chance of qualifying for Europe's elite competition looked to be through winning the Europa League. "He is still very, very young and I think he is very important for us".

Tottenham also face Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday (5.15pm), and Carragher has questioned their form in the "big games".

The FC crew talk tactics in the United v Chelsea match, and how Manchester shut down Chelsea's free-flowing style.

Young, who joined United from Aston Villa in 2011, said: "I have another year left on my contract and an option after that so if there is anything there to be discussed you would have to ask the manager".

Chelsea, which held a 13-point lead after beating Stoke 2-1 on March 18, has lost two of its last four games. We need to realise it's not over, we need to realise there are points to play for, and we have to dig in.

Mourinho and United in the reverse fixture where whipped 4-0 at Stamford Bridge and even though the Portuguese gaffer chose to rest some of his top guns, they were still able to get the win over the Blues and keep alive a slim top-four finish aspiration.

Beaten manager Antonio Conte took responsibility for Chelsea's defeat.

Rashford opened the scoring in the seventh minute when he ran onto Herrera's pass behind David Luiz and sent a shot bobbling past goalkeeper Asmir Begovic. I think everyone is concentrated for this end of the season because we know we play for two big opportunities.

It doesn't matter if the leader is Chelsea or another. "Last season, Chelsea had no pressure in 10th place and you play calm, you are happy. we are doing a great job and a miracle if you consider last season and the problems we had".
