Mourinho’s side were guilty of missing some good chances, with the best chances falling to the duo of Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez.

However, the home side battled hard, surviving a late pressure from their visitors to record a massive victory in their bid to survive the drop, come end of the season.
