David Luiz faces battle to regain his Chelsea place, warns Antonio Conte

Morata has netted seven goals in 14 appearances for Chelsea this season, but the Spaniard has not scored for the Blues since the 2-1 win over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League in September.

"We have several teams in a more hard position than we have". The negative aspect is that he must be more clinical to kill the game if we have the chances to do that.

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

Antonio Conte achieved just that on Sunday, handing Mourinho a third successive losing return visit to Chelsea with Manchester United.

The victory is a welcome boost for Antonio Conte, after an indifferent run of form for the Blues, but Mourinho believed his side deserved more against his former employers.

When asked if Luiz, who looked in good spirits during the match as he sat behind the dugout, had a future at Chelsea, Conte replied: 'I don't know. "I want to play well and win with this shirt". But while Lukaku has now gone a seventh game in all competitions without scoring, Morata's goal starvation is over.

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.

The win was the ideal response to their 3-0 drubbing at Roma in the Champions League and Conte was delighted to see his players bounce back. "We go into the global break with three points and this is very important for us", he added.

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. The win moves fourth-placed Chelsea to within a point of Tottenham and United , who remain in second on goal difference.

United are on the verge of qualification for the knockout stage of the Champions League after four wins from four games and they are also in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.

Manchester City is the team to catch in the Premier League, and it's getting even more challenging. Eight points is eight points.
