Mourinho not concerned by eight-point gap to Manchester City

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho insisted his team didn't deserve to lose 1-0 to Chelsea.

"Azpi is a really fantastic guy and he cares a lot for the club and plays for the shirt and he played a really massive game".

"Antonio, [technical director] Michael [Emenalo], [director] Marina [Granovskaia], all of them called me this summer and there was no chance I wasn't coming to Chelsea", the 25-year-old was reported as saying by the Independent.

Morata peeled away from defender Eric Bailly and the striker was completely unmarked 12 yard (meters) from goal when he met Azpilicueta's pinpoint cross with a powerful looping header.

Spurs, without Dele Alli because of a hamstring strain, made a shaky start in their first game after the memorable midweek win over Real Madrid.

There has never been a bigger gap between the top two after 11 matches in Premier League history and Guardiola's swashbuckling side are heavy favourites to win the title. But while Lukaku has now gone a seventh game in all competitions without scoring, Morata's goal starvation is over.

Claure that T-Mobile and its parent company, Germany's Deutsche Telekom AG, didn't want the deal to fall apart, the report said. Sprint "look [s] forward to continuing to take the fight to the duopoly and newly emerging competitors", Claure said.

Earlier in the week, Chelsea had suffered a 0-3 defeat to Serie A side, Roma, in a Champions League Group stage match. Within two minutes of Hazard being again thwarted by De Gea, United was carved open as Morata scored.

"But now there's an global break coming and it's a good time to recap and to see the things that we're doing well and the things that we can improve".

Mourinho, who complained last month that he won't "cry" about injury problems like other managers, in part blamed the loss on the absence of players like Paul Pogba.

United are on the verge of qualification for the knockout stage of the Champions League after four wins from four games and they are also in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup. It was a tough and intense game where Chelsea were able to take their chances to get the three points.

"So every team is more anxious than us because we are second". Eight points is eight points. It's the only unbeaten team in England, and with an enviable depth of talent on the field and on the bench.
