Obviously they are not playing Champions League, and that puts (their focus) just on the Premier League.

Jose Mourinho believes former club Chelsea can win this season's Premier League title if Eden Hazard maintains his form as the English game's best player.

Although United's manager, who has twice been in charge at Chelsea, did not reference this, he said: "Would I celebrate like insane if my team scored a goal at Stamford Bridge or my team claimed victory?"

Wayne Rooney's stunning direct free kick lifted D.C. United to a 1-0 win over Toronto FC and extended the Black-and-Red's lead above the playoff line in the Eastern Conference to four points Wednesday night at Audi Field.

"I would love to have him in Manchester United but I don't think Chelsea will sell him to Manchester United, so it's a not problem", Mourinho added.

But Rooney has played down suggestions Jose Mourinho's current crop at United are failing to replicate the attacking style of Ferguson's sides.

Kerr knows his players are still getting in shape and looked exhausted , saying: "We didn't look much like ourselves". Steph Curry took the mic to thank the Warrior fans for their support during their championship run.

"It happened with me and Antonio [Conte], and this season, it is still the beginning of course, but if he is the best player of the Premier League until now, which I think he is until now, Chelsea is top of the league because he is the kind of player who can make a huge difference".

"But I promise you the day after a football match it doesn't matter the result".

Hazard's recent form has helped Chelsea get off to an unbeaten start in the Premier League and Maurizio Sarri's men will be desperately hoping to continue in a similar fashion when United visit.

United go into the game in eighth place in the table and are already seven points adrift of Chelsea, who are joint-top. Alexis Sanchez is named on the bench.

Nonetheless, Mourinho has been no stranger to criticising his own team and again appeared to damn his players with faint praise when asked why they have been unable to replicate the second-half performance against Newcastle over 90 minutes. "But we actually weren't", the 32-year-old continued.
