Default Re: [EPL] Manchester United 2-0 Chelsea

Marcos Rojo and Diego Costa resume battle, Antonio Conte's cap and Phil Neville's odd collection of friends: Six things you missed from Manchester United 2-0 Chelsea

* Marcus Rashford starred as Manchester United beat Chelsea 2-0 at Old Trafford
* Marcos Rojo and Diego Costa continued their ongoing and slightly tedious feud
* Ashley Young became the latest in the line of bizarre United captaincy choices
* Chelsea manager Antonio Conte's fashion credential came under question
* Here are Sportmail's selection of things you missed from the big Sunday clash


Jose Mourinho got the better of his old side as Manchester United slowed Chelsea's title charge with a 2-0 win at Old Trafford.

Goals from Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera gave Mourinho's United a deserved and unexpectedly comfortable victory to leave the Blues just four points clear of Tottenham at the top of the Premier League.

The result also gave United's hopes of finishing in the top four a lift and makes the title race at least fractionally less finished.

The on-field action was engrossing at Old Trafford so do not worry if you missed the game's finer details, Sportsmail has you covered.

Armband merry-go-round for United

The United captaincy used to be a position of status in English football. Throughout history great names have held the title: Bobby Charlton, Bryan Robson, Steve Bruce, Roy Keane and you could probably even include Nemanja Vidic in that list.

In the last two Premier Leagues the armband has been taken by Marouane Fellaini and now Ashley Young. Even if they are becoming increasingly appreciated for the selfless work ethic by United fans they are not many people's idea of Old Trafford captaincy material.

Having led the side last weekend at Sunderland what did Fellaini do wrong to see Young take over?


Against Chelsea, Ashley Young was the latest recipient of the Manchester United captaincy

The Rojo vs Costa race to the bottom continues

In the FA Cup clash between United and Chelsea last month Marcos Rojo played chief agitator and was involved in a running battle Diego Costa throughout.

At Old Trafford they resumed hostilities again.

After Costa's aerial challenge Eric Bailly pushed perilously close to a face-first meeting with the post Rojo squared up to the forward.

The two tangled later on the first half as they fell turf-wards after another headed duel. Rojo and Costa both appeared to lay sly digs on each other and reacted in equally embarrassing fashion. Unsurprisingly both ended the game in the book.

Less Rumble in the Jungle, more Zippy and Bungle (ask your parents).

I thought Italians were meant to be stylish?

Chelsea's official tailors Hackett probably did not have Antonio Conte's chosen accessory in mind when they designed their latest club suit.

It was not exactly blinding sun but Conte paired his smart suit and button up, almost certainly tailored and probably worth a few hundred quid, with a 13 adidas cap.

This is not acceptable

Where do you even start? Just look at it...


United fans go to extreme lengths to support their team/make sure they get their photo taken

Phil Neville and his loosely connected gang of football friends

Kurt Zouma's laboured stepovers had Gary Neville making light-hearted comparisons to brother Phil's slow-mo footwork and the Sky cameras picking out the younger brother in the Old Trafford stands.

To say Phil was in varied company would be to undersell his collection of companions.

Graeme Le Saux, Robbie Earle, Andy Townsend, Frank Leboeuf, Mark Schwarzer and Mikael Silvestre could be an ITV2 major tournament highlight show B Team.

Judas is still No 1

With the win over his former club Jose Mourinho has now recorded at least one league victory versus all 34 Premier League opponents that he's faced as a manager.
