Manchester United suffered a 0-3 win against Tottenham Hotspur on Monday night, which means the Red Devils are now struggling in the middle of Premier League table with only 3 points after 3 games so far.

Speaking after the game, former Chelsea manager José Mourinho had a clash with a journalist as he called for more ‘respect’ despite United’s crushing defeat to Spurs at Old Trafford.

He said: “You want to make the miracle of my team played so well and strategically we were so, so good and you want to try and transform this press conference into ‘let’s blame the guy’… you can try. Keep trying.”

“When I win matches I come here many times and you are not happy and you say the most important is the way of playing. I need to know what is the most important thing if it is is to play well or win matches?” 
“Just to finish, do you know the result? 3-0. 3-0. Do you know what this means? It also means, 3 Premierships and I won more Premierships alone than the other 19 managers together. Three for me… and two for them”.

Then, walking out of the room, Mourinho added: “Respect. Respect. Respect. Respect.”

Manchester City win their 5th title with 4 games remaining as Manchester United suffered a home defeat against bottom club West Bromwich Albion this afternoon at Old Trafford. Jay Rodriguez’s late strike secured a vital win in their race to avoid the relegation.

Former Southampton, Blackburn and Newcastle striker Alan Shearer said after the game: “Man City have been the best team by an absolute mile – the points tell you that. They’ve played some brilliant stuff all season, they’ve been magnificent in the league, congratulations to them. Pep will enjoy the 19th hole today I’m sure.”

Chelsea, who lifted the title on 12th of May last year, remain 17 points behind the newly-crowned Premier League champions. Man City have equalled an English league record as only Manchester United in 1907/08 and 2000/01 campaigns and Everton in 1984/85 succeeded in winning the title with 4 games still to go.

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill is confident despite losing the last game at home against Manchester City with a stunner from former Blues’ Kevin De Bruyne.

The England international believes Chelsea showed a better performance than visitors: “Of course it’s disappointing, I thought we’d play much better, especially at home so overall it was a disappointing afternoon for us. Obviously we have lost points but also I don’t think the performance was up to our usual standard”.

Chelsea was forced to play after three days as Champions League game against Atletico Madrid took place on Wednesday night.

“We didn’t play as well as we can do or as well as we have been doing, but credit to them, they made it very difficult for us. – Cahill admitted – It was a tough fixture for us to play, especially after coming back at four o’clock in the morning on Thursday. It’s not an excuse but it’s a factor. We worked very hard for each other but we were a fraction off it and they were very, very good. Last season we were very confident playing at home so we will look to get back to that”.

With Manchester United and Manchester City standing firm at the top of Premier League table, will Chelsea be competitive in the title race until May?

And Cahill is confident of that despite six-points gap: “They are setting the pace at the top of the league at the moment, as are Manchester United. They’re both getting very good results and scoring a lot of goals, but let’s see.

We’re in September, so let’s get to Christmas, January time – hopefully we’ll be in and around the top and then we’ll see from there. We’re experienced in it, but it’s disappointing to lose points here against Manchester City”.

Then he added: “We proved last season we’ve got enough to win the league, but we realise it’s very difficult. We’ve done it twice since I’ve been here and both times it’s been extremely difficult. Look at the strength of the teams around us, but it’s just important that we fight to the end”.

The former Chelsea star, now at New York City in MLS, told FoxSports that this season is an anomaly for a club like Blues. Frank Lampard, when asked how he felt about the end of an era at his former club, said: “You can replace players, but you can’t as easily replicate the characters that hold together the dressing room.”

“Last year you wouldn’t have seen it coming at all,” – Lampard told Fox Sports in New York City – “the first six months of last year particularly — they won the league comfortably and for the first six months they were pretty strong. When you have to change that — look at Arsenal, when they had a really strong team with the Invincibles — and players move on, it’s not easy to change that straight away.”

He added: “I think looking back, there had to be a bit of a change. That’s what makes teams and clubs stronger. It’s not just winning things; to be a great club, you have to do it over a long time — like Manchester United have done over the years, like Liverpool did many years ago in England.”

About next year: “There will probably be some new players come in, a new manager, but I think there are some young players there who will improve. They’ll need to; although Chelsea will still likely attract players to the club, their pull in the market will be hugely diminished without the lure of European football.”

He ended: “Chelsea has to improve next year. The players and manager that comes in will have a job — because Chelsea has to be in the top four in the Premier League, has to be in the Champions League, has to be fighting for the title every year. This year need to be the exception to the rule.”
