As expected, it was a tactical battle trainers, which better showed himself Jose Mourinho. He used young quick strikers Rashford and Lingard. And this bet paid off.
But Antonio Conte has received a severe blow just before the match got injured Thibaut Courtois and Marcos Alonso and adapt to the tactics of more experienced colleagues failed. By and large, game in attack at «blue» began to happen (though the chances is still not there, but began to appear dangerous) only out on the pitch Cesc Fabregas. The defence played not the best way. Often wrong especially when attacking transitions MATIC.
Of course, played a role and a quick goal. Herrera made a great pass. Rashford, popped one on one and opened the score 1:0.
