Manchester United v Chelsea - Premier League
The football world witnessed another episode of the Mourinho-Conte rivalry on Sunday

Manchester United earned their way back into second place on the table thanks to super-sub, Jesse Lingard. The Red Devils had to come from behind after Willian scored early in the first half.

Romelu Lukaku towards the end of the first half to take the teams into the dressing room level on the scoreboard. Lukaku then swooped in a brilliant cross for Lingard to head home.

The game was missing a controversial moment and that just what happened when Alvaro Morata had a goal and it was incorrectly disallowed for offside.

Here are the talking points from the game:


#5 A tactical masterclass

Both Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte came out with a plan while both teams executed it to near perfection. The two sides were out brilliant at defending and made the most out of the 'silly errors' at the back.

However, it was Mourinho who got the final laugh as his substitutions and tactics spot on until the very end. Conte's game plan was working well but his substitutions were highly questionable and that was one of the main reasons for Chelsea to drop the three points today.
