Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has stated that he did not humiliate Manchester United.
It is believed that Jose Mourinho had told the Chelsea boss after the match that his action has embarrassed his team and that he was not pleased with this behavior.
Antonio Conte said that this was not his intention and he only wanted to get the fans behind the team. He said that as a former player he knows how players feel on nights like these and that he will never do anything to humiliate an opposing team. He stated that he always respects opponents and that he is only a competitor on the field.
Chelsea beat Manchester United 4-0 in a match that saw Jose Mourinho returned to Chelsea after the club sacked him. Unfortunately, it does not work out for the Portuguese manager as his side concede a goal in the first minute of the game. Manchester United will not recover from going behind and will fail to take control of the match. Instead, they will concede another goal from Gary Cahill.
The match will reach half-time with the score 2-0. After the break, Manchester United took control of the game, but they will fail to trouble the Chelsea keeper. They will concede another goal on an Eden Hazard counter attack that will kill the match as a contest. Kante will add another goal in the closing stage of the game to complete Manchester United humiliation.
Conte said that he was pleased with the way his players played and that it is important that they keep progressing. He stated that Chelsea is still in the title race and that they need to find some consistency if they want to win the title. He has urged fans to stay behind the team.
