Chelsea earned a point at Old Trafford
In fact, the eagerly awaited derby between Mourinho's team and Ferguson's squad produced a match that enthralled the watching nation. United had the better of a somewhat disappointing first half whilst Chelsea dominated the second half.
Mourinho was content that the result Sunday at Old Trafford stopped the Red Devils from going six points ahead and kept his club within three points of the Premiership leaders.
"We know in the second period of the season Man United has to go to Arsenal, to Chelsea and to Liverpool," Mourinho admitted, who has guided the Blues to lopsided league title triumphs in each of the last two seasons. "They will have a really tough time."
Wemust consider that United has 35 points from 14 games while Chelsea has 32. Bolton, which beat Arsenal 3-1 Saturday, is in third place with 24 points.
