Darmian backs Rashford to become one of world's best

I want to succeed.

The Blues were beaten 2-0 at Old Trafford with their former boss Jose Mourinho scoring a moral victory as goals from Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera pegged Chelsea back.

There were three elements to the instructions Mourinho gave his players.

The 31-year-old said: "There was of course, and there is always, speculation and especially when there is a transfer window and you are not playing".

"I don't think a lot of people saw that scoreline coming or the type of game to be honest".

"We just have to concentrate on ourselves".

Mourinho allegedly told his players to go out and get the second goal as the Blues were under the cosh. We have a busy month and everyone has to be ready and on their toes.

"There are only six games left and we are still in a good position".

The Belgium worldwide says he does have "dreams" of playing elsewhere, but will only think about his future when the dust has settled on Chelsea's Premier League title challenge and FA Cup run this term.

The performance also bodes well for the remainder of the season, with fifth-placed United four points behind their nearest rivals but boasting at least a game in hand on all of them.

Despite their win, the Red Devils remain outsiders to make the top four and will likely have to rely on their Europa League campaign if they're to play Champions League football next term. As Graeme Souness remarked from the Sky Television studio, if Conte could not motivate his footballers to play at Old Trafford in front of 75,000, there was not much hope for them.

Young was linked with a move to the Chinese Super League in the January transfer window but the former Aston Villa and Watford attacker is now concentrating on giving his best for Mourinho as his side challenge for Champions League qualification and Europa League glory.

"That's why I'm disappointed with John Terry leaving Chelsea because I still think there's a place for those experienced players in dressing rooms to set the tone for the rest".

"This season has been the most regular for me and that is with Mourinho on the bench".

The 19-year-old England worldwide started the game at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon and played for 83 minutes. "It is down to the England manager".

"I am very thankful to Mourinho", Herrera told United Review.

"He plays the game with hunger". He kept having to come short, with Rojo or Bailly staying close to him and knowing exactly what he was going to do. "I think the defeat is down to a combination of things".

"For us it is a fantastic target".
