With the quality players they have Chelsea had a good chance of beating United in a straight fight, but the players went out on the pitch prepped not to lose, rather than to try and win - the fact that they did get the three points was more a happy coincidence than anything else.

Footballers' Treatment of Referees Is Turning the Beautiful Game Ugly

The root of the problem is attitude. Steven Gerrard told the ​Guardian that Chelsea's reaction was merely "normal". He said: "It's normal at that level. Players want to win so much, managers want to win so much, and they'll try every trick in the book." Is that not the most worrying aspect of all?

Mourinho has the capacity to manipulate the media and to direct the press' attention where he sees fit. It is an attribute that so few top-flight managers possess but in modern football, it can be an essential tool in the coach's artillery.

Essentially, Mourinho is playing the Football Manager game with real people. It's a foolproof plan and the easiest way of turning up money to improve the first team squad... Chelsea's transfer strategy is long term and it's such a strong blueprint that it's going to keep them at the pinnacle of English football for the years to come.

The line from British commentators and reporters has long been the same - the Premier League is the best league in the world. By a mile. No debate. But even if that was once true, it's abundantly clear that it's now a delusion, a line repeated out of familiarity rather than any sort of evidence.

Will Jose Mourinho's Mouth Be the Undoing of Chelsea's Title Hopes?

Mourinho knows his Chelsea side can't go on scraping through 1-0 victories for much longer. His deliberate tactic to unsettle the opposition simply won't work; Pellegrini, Wenger and Rodgers are too mature and sophisticated to fall foul of his childish games.

The Best Young Full-Backs in Ligue 1

Ben McAleer | Posted 07.04.2014 | UK Sport
Ben McAleer

The modern day full-back is tasked with pressing forward and overlapping the attack-minded players as a means of providing an offensive outlet to his team, but also having the fitness levels to return to their starting position to perform defensive duties. Mathieu Debuchy and Ricardo Rodriguez, of Newcastle and Woflsburg respectively, have exhibited these qualities this season and are two prime examples of how a right or left-back should operate.

Therefore in a World Cup year, warming the bench or turning out for the stiffs is not an option. Thankfully for those struggling to make an impact, this time of year throws up a few potential opportunities to make a push for Brazil.
