While Chelsea remain favourites to win the league, Conte will be concerned about the manner of the defeat at Old Trafford where they were rarely able to turn possession into chances.

"I didn't want to touch the ball with the hand", Herrera told Sky Sports.

Frank Lampard said he saw signs of doubt in Chelsea's players as they were beaten at Manchester United. I'd just walked from the gantry through quite a few people that I know who said 'look at that team he's picked!' thinking whether it was going to be a positive day.

Jose Mourinho's side won the League Cup thanks to Ibrahimovic's heroics, but they have been unable to keep pace with league leaders Chelsea.

He added: "I am concerned, we have to work together and find quickly the right desire and ambition to win this title".

United were also knocked out of the FA Cup quarter-finals by Chelsea last month and avenging those painful losses kept alive their bid to qualify for the Champions League via a top four finish.

"He plays the game with hunger - it comes natural to him, ".

As Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho sauntered down the Old Trafford touchline ostentatiously pointing at the club crest on his gilet, the message was clear: I'm still the man.

Darmian added: "We know that it will be a hard game but we play at home, in front of our fans. The kid played fantastically well, but everybody fought and did what they had to do". Defensively it was flawless, they didn't create any chances, and on the counter-attack we hurt them.

The midfielder went on to say that he thought "defensively" the team was "perfect" as for a team at the "top of the table" they did not manage to "create any chances" during the game which shows how well the team played.

But the 19-year-old made up for his miss less than a minute later latching on to a through ball from Ander Herrera before slotting the ball past Asmir Begovic, who was deputising for the injured Thibaut Courtois.

The Brazilian converted a flick-on from Lucas Leiva to seal Liverpool's fifth win in their last seven games.

"He is always on the pitch, on the right, on the left, in the centre with one striker or two strikers, so I think for his education, for his tactical education this season is a phenomenal season for him, with an fantastic range of different experiences".
