Jose Mourinho wrong to call Antonio Conte's Chelsea defensive, says Jamie Carragher

Manchester United drawn against Anderlecht in quarter-finals of the Europa League

The former Atletico Madrid hitman has been revitalised under Conte, and while he remains an aggressive player, he has become somewhat more disciplined since the Italian took over.

"In the first 20-25 minutes (against United) I saw only this type of situation for him, and it was impossible for him to play football".

After defender Marcos Alonso fouled Joe Allen in Chelsea's 18-yard area, the Austrian stepped up and slid the ball under the 'keeper (Above) to seal a resounding victory, which may have given hope to the likes of Tottenham and Manchester City in the 2016-17 Premier League title race.

"I think we need 24 points to win the league".

"Conte could decide to recall Pedro for Saturday's clash after resting him against United as Chelsea go in search of the win that would send them 13 points clear at the top of the table".

Month-old dies after sittter can't reach 911
Since November, the city of Dallas has reportedly been having problems with "ghost calls" overwhelming the 911 call center. The city said that there is no evidence so far that the delays in emergency response played any role in his death.

Mourinho recently said that he didn't agree with his predecessor Louis van Gaal's decision to sell Angel di Maria, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck, and admitted that he would definitely have kept hold of the trio.

Another young player who simply wasn't given the right assurances by Jose Mourinho, it must kill Chelsea fans to watch Kevin De Bruyne consistently produce the goods for divisional rivals Manchester City.

Conte was also asked about reports he is dissatisfied with his lack of control regarding the recruitment of new players at Stamford Bridge - something the Italian insists is simply not the case.

"I think, above all, in football it's not simple to give always a correct evaluation for players".

The LaLiga giants are long time admirers of the Belgian star who has already spent three season in the Spanish capital having played for three years for Atletico Madrid while on loan from Chelsea. "That happens. But it's not right to talk about mistakes".
