Chelsea were dominant in the 1-0 win against Manchester United on Sunday evening at Stamford Bridge, and the scoreline could easily have been another 4-0 win if Chelsea had taken their chances.
However, only Jose Mourinho thinks his side controlled the game at Stamford Bridge.
He told the press after the defeat: “I think they scored in the only period they were on top in the game but apart from, that the game was even.
“The game was controlled by us and the game was controlled by them. We had chances and they had chances and with the first goal they found themselves winning and were able to bring more people to defend but, even so, knowing they can defend with a lot of people. We had a go, we tried to change the direction of our game. We created chances to equalise but we couldn’t.”
The United boss also thinks that his team had enough chances to have finished Chelsea.
He said after the game: “I don’t know the number, I don’t know the quality. I was on the bench following the game and not counting. I think we had chances.
“If I remember, [Nemanja] Matic’s header in the face of [Chelsea goalkeeper Thibault] Courtois. If I remember, [Romelu] Lukaku’s shot in the first half and if I remember in the last part of the game, [Marcus] Rashford’s shot and Courtois without any chance. The cross to the far post to [Marouane] Fellaini with the chest and the volley and the consequence of that. We had lots of chances to score a goal.”
