"We showed our qualities and our desire in the second half".

"For me, you're at Old Trafford in front of 70,000, you're Man United and you're sitting behind the ball with eleven players, letting us play the ball across our back three with no pressure on". For some reason, they were the champions last season.

Chelsea had the better start - bringing in all the confidence they had gained from a fighting 1-1 against Barcelona in midweek.

The supporters of both teams could not hide their joy and disappointments when they spoke to Ghanaweb shortly after the game. Otherwise, we don't have a great balance. "He was a little bit lost but then he went together with the team - improving, improving". I hope the players realise this soon.

Watford edged past Everton in Saturday's late kick-off with captain Troy Deeney grabbing the only goal of the game while Bournemouth came from two goals down to take a point as they entertained Newcastle United. They have a fantastic dynamic of the way they project the wing-backs. Every single player has to work with the ball, without the ball; otherwise, we lose our balance and the game.

Lukaku's 39th-minute equalizer, canceling out Willian's opener, was his first goal against any of the division's leading eight sides this season and took him onto 22 in all competitions in his first season at United.

Therefore, I can't see past a home win and a 2-1 City victory at odds of 8.00 looks tempting but if we throw Sergio Aguero in as the first goalscorer we enhance the odds to 15.00.

"This type of situations can change the final result", said the Italian.

Jenas reckons Willian is good enough to get into league leaders Manchester City's starting line-up and says there must be something wrong between him and Conte.

While Conte stuck to his preferred 3-4-3 formation throughout the first half, Mourinho varied his and switched to four different formations in the course of the game.

'Instead we are talking about a loss.

"De Gea is a very hard goalkeeper to beat but we'll try to get past him in the return leg", said the defender. "In this league to find a place in Champions League is not simple".

And while Drinkwater played well enough on a personal level in what was just his fourth start in the Premier League for Chelsea and the first in nearly two months, the team's performance in the second-half left plenty to be desired.
