We Didn't Deserve To Lose To Chelsea - Jose Mourinho

Mata Lukaku Nemanja Matic and boss Jose Mourinho face former club Chelsea on Sunday

David Luiz watched from the stands amid rumours he has had a falling out with Antonio Conte.

"It is unfortunate (to have to wait)", the centre-back told Manchester United's in-house broadcaster MUTV.

"I think it was two teams there who can defend and who have got very good attacking players", said the England global, left out of Gareth Southgate's latest squad for matches against Germany and Brazil.

Unbeaten City have set a frightening pace this season, winning 10 of their matches and scoring 38 goals in the process to build up an extraordinary goal difference of plus 31.

Conte left the defender out of the squad following rumours of a bust up between the two but the Italian manager said the decision was purely tactical.

And the result means United trail leaders Manchester City by eight points after just 11 games.

United were second best for large periods against Chelsea, whose dominance was rewarded by Alvaro Morata's superb header in the 55th minute.

Spurs, without Dele Alli because of a hamstring strain, made a shaky start in their first game after the memorable midweek win over Real Madrid. "I want to play well and win with this shirt".

Tiemoue Bakayoko had an early chance to put the hosts in front but missed the target, United goalkeeper David De Gea denied Eden Hazard and Morata lacked power with a strike before halftime.

Mourinho, who complained last month that he won't "cry" about injury problems like other managers, in part blamed the loss on the absence of players like Paul Pogba.

"Of course they should (shake hands) because that's the way the game is played", he said on Sky Sports News.

"So every team is more anxious than us because we are second".

Pep Guardiola's side moved eight points clear with a 3-1 victory over Arsenal on Sunday when second-place Manchester United lost 1-0 at Chelsea.

There is still more than two-thirds of the season to go but City is looking a formidable attacking unit that's proving hard to thwart.
