LvG does Abba

Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal: "In my opinion it was the best performance we have had this season. We were not effective because we have created, despite the defensive organisation of Chelsea, three chances in the first half and eight in the second half.

"That is unbelievably good. We were the dominant team on the pitch but we lose. Everything is the result.

"Everybody can have his own opinion and the winner takes it all. It's a song, but it's like that.

"The title is not definitely gone because we can still win 15 points."

Manager reaction

Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho: "Six games to play, three at home three away. Every game is difficult, every team needs points. But out situation is very good.

"It was difficult but less than you think. We prepared for the game to be like this. It was the game we wanted and expected. Control their direct football to Fellaini and control the wingers from making crosses on the inside foot. When we know Rooney plays in midfield we control his progression into the box. Control set-pieces and don't give away direct free-kicks as they have three specialists. Wait for a mistake and score a goal. It was what we wanted it to be. We are happy because the work we did in the week was what happened here.

"De Gea should see red because he had a handball outside the box. That is the only situation where he can speak. Apart from that the referee did a good job. [On the Herrera potential penalty incident] If it is Chelsea player nobody speak about anything else but diving for a week.

"I feel we are almost there but there are no almosts in football. We need eight points to be champions. It is pure mathematics."

Dave: Herrera the one creating the contact, not the other way round! No pen. Great call from the ref.

Critical Richard: De gea not sent off for clearly handling outside the area and yet its Chelsea who are lucky ... whatever makes you feel better

Steve Found: it's not Chelsea's fault that United couldn't beat a team with both preferred strikers out & played nearly twice as many games.

Top class interviews from both managers. Louis van Gaal declaring his side's performance the best of the season but Jose Mourinho insisting that the game was exactly as he planned.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho: "We need our points but if they come against teams in second or in third it helps us. Today we won three points and our direct opponent lost three points. We are focussed on us, we have six matches to play and we need eight points.

"The game was exactly the game we want. The only thing we couldn't do was to kill the game with a second goal. We were able to make their important players disappear. Nobody saw them. They were in our pockets.

"Football is talent but strategy is also important."

"Did it please you to win a game like that? "I love it."

Manager reaction

Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal: "I am not frustrated I am proud. Why should I be frustrated? We played the best match of the season.

"In my opinion that is the main decision of the referee [the potential penalty incident involving Ander Herrera] Maybe you can watch the replays on television."

'We have dominated the champions in waiting'

More from Wayne Rooney talking to BBC Sport:

"We have dominated the champions in waiting. It was a good performance from the team.

"On another day we would score three or four goals. We knew we had the players who could dominate. We are proud of the performance.

"Chelsea know how to slow the game down and get the referee on their side, which they did today very well. They have won the game so I am sure they are going to be champions."

"I am proud of the team that we dominated the game so much. It is probably the best performance of the season against the champions in waiting.

"We have had a lot of injuries. I have said before, if the manager wants me to play midfield I have no problem in doing that."

"It is always good to win against Manchester United. We have to win two or three more games.

"It was very difficult, they played very well. They are very big players and we are lucky to score maybe in the first half.

"I try to score, to create something and today I did very well. That's my job.

"We are close but it is not finished. In England you never know."

'Happy to see Rooney in midfield'

"We have not been playing as well as we can of late but we have been grinding out results and we did that again.

"We were delighted to see Wayne Rooney in midfield. A phenomenal player and such a threat in that role behind the striker.

"We have dipped a bit but we are still picking up results and that is a sign of champions. It has been four years since we won the league and we are very determined. Still not done yet."

BBC Sport chief football writer Phil McNulty at Stamford Bridge

"Final whistle and victory in sight for Chelsea now. Manchester United have been dominating possession but once again they have ran into a blue wall of resistance built by Jose Mourinho's organisation. Even if they lose, however, Louis van Gaal's side have confirmed again that they are now a very different proposition from earlier in the season."

Antony Wilson: It's refreshing for United to be the better side yet losing. They now know how half their opponents have felt this season.

Edward Small: I understand the frustration but Mourinho knows how to win titles and big games. Besides, his sides score when he wants them to.

Ross Samski: The fact Chelsea will win the Premier League playing Sunday league football goes to show what a poor season it's been. Quite embarrassing.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Radamel Falcao shows a glimpse of what he can do, fine movement to slip in behind Kurt Zouma and break into the box, he hits a left-footed drive but it rattles against the outside of the post!

A lovely give and go from Eden Hazard but he drags his shot at David De Gea. Hazard a class above this afternoon - player of the year?

Chelsea 15 minutes away from another win. A foul throw from Branislav Ivanovic! You don't get many of those in a season.
