Manchester United's most recent loss keeps them at second place in the English Premier League, but without much of a buffer left. A little bit retro but with modern touches.

This game also saw the return of Chelsea's beloved midfielder N'Golo Kante, who was out for the past six matches due to a hamstring injury. "I wanted to play, nothing else", Morata added. "I am focused on playing for Chelsea".

The sad truth for Zidane is that he must be gutted to see how well the Spaniard is doing in London.

Nevertheless, Morata was able to put in a header at 55 minutes in.

And it didn't take him long to make an impression after popping up in the background of some unsuspecting fans' photos! Conte, too, is unhappy with his placement at Chelsea.

Morata was also asked about his relationship with coach Zinedine Zidane.

Morata enjoyed two spells at boyhood club Madrid, winning two LaLiga titles and as many UEFA Champions League crowns among others, but he was unable to cement himself in the starting XI with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema headlining Zinedine Zidane's attacking options.

"Of course [I would enjoy working with Mourinho again]". Now I have a challenge ahead of me to be champion in Spain, Italy and England.

Hazard and Mourinho did not shake hands before last Sunday's Premier League contest between Chelsea and Manchester United, which the Blues won 1-0.

Speaking to Belgian TV channel RTL while on international duty this week, Hazard said: "Everyone knows the respect I have for Zidane as a player, but also as a manager".

Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho's exchange set the tone.

The 25-year-old was never really the main man at Los Blancos, nor was he during his successful year at Juventus, but now, he is the focal point for one of Europe's top teams.
