Although many believe that he did not deserve that red card, and this crowd said it would really be a shame if the Spaniard would now indeed be suspended for two games.
Those missed chances must hurt.
Chelsea and Manchester United go head to head at Stamford Bridge tonight with the final spot in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley on offer.
And also, according to Chelsea, by targeting Hazard.
Manchester United: De Gea; Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Rojo; Herrera, Carrick; Mkhitaryan, Pogba, Mata; Fellaini. Diego Costa should have made it 2-0 but United should have levelled when the galloping Rashford left David Luiz and Gary Cahill trailing but shot straight at Thibaut Courtois.
Mourinho’s frustration was evident as he prowled the touchline, coming under verbal attack from the Chelsea fans, some of whom called him “Judas”. But he will have been disappointed not to stop N’Golo Kante’s opening goal from distance. United has the best squad in the league.
His accurate tackles and his constant recovery of the ball ensured that Manchester United were restricted to only 28% possession by the end of the match.
Though the goal is only Kante’s second of the season across all competitions, in fact both have been against United.
“But Kante – what a find he was by Leicester”.
It was Chelsea who eventually booked their place in the semi-finals thanks to N’Golo Kante’s 51st minute strike – but only after Ander Herrera’s careless sending off.
6 of the 14 fouls committed by Manchester United on the night were on the Belgian.
There may be an option to bring one of Rooney, Rashford or Martial down to London on Monday if they respond to treatment, but it appears that all three will be absent for a game that now appears to be heavily weighted in Chelsea’s favour.
“It probably comes from envy, but I have to say, that for me, Paul Pogba was by far the best player on the pitch”.
Mourinho’s mood at losing 1-0 to his former club Chelsea darkened as he boarded the team bus at Stamford Bridge and was told the plane had not yet arrived at Heathrow.
Not in my house.
Chelsea’s fans sought to intimidate through chants, and they pained Mourinho, the most successful manager in the London club’s history before being fired for a second time in 2015.
So, the Europa League is one of the options for his men to get back to the Champions League but for that they have to win it and United have often looked rusty here as well.
