Chelsea were not good enough against Manchester United, and while most of the pundits called the players out on it, you usually don't expect players to come out and admit that they've been below par.
Chelsea's all-time top goalscorer Lampard won three league titles at Stamford Bridge, and said Conte's men must forget their latest setback as they did the 3-0 defeat at Arsenal in September, with the Blues bouncing back from that loss to win 13 games in a row. "We did that at Stamford Bridge when we played with 11, with 10 it was more hard and today we controlled".
Despite that miss, Jurgen Klopp's side secured a fifth win in seven games, sending West Brom to a third straight defeat.
That saw Spurs' attention switch to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon, and they hoped Jose Mourinho's United could do them a favour in the title run-in.
JOSE MOURINHO is targeting the top four places in the Premier League as he sets his sights on the Champions League spots after seeing off Chelsea.
"We must have great enthusiasm to play these last six games, with patience and a great will to fight".
"We have to think that there are six finals from now until the end", Conte said.
"I think everyone is concentrated for this end of the season because we know we play for two big opportunities".
But it was Herrera who deservedly received the man-of-the-match award, for his first goal/assist combination in the same game since October 2015 against Everton, and for a magnificent man-to-man marking job on Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard.
Manchester United's Ashley Young insisted he still had "fire in my belly" after getting back into the first team at Old Trafford.
Rashford and Herrera both drew plaudits for their performances following the match with the 19-year-old forced to lead the line as Zlatan Ibrahimovic dropped to the bench due to fatigue.
Two minutes later, though, Herrera won the ball in midfield, possibly by using his hand, and delivered an inch ideal pass into the path of Rashford, who outpaced Luiz and fired low into the far corner of the net. It is mine. In this case I wasn't able to do the right motivation.
