The Blues have enjoyed a brilliant campaign, which has helped by having a more than ideal schedule due to no participation in Europe this season.

"But I think winning is a big thing at a club like Manchester United and you quickly learn that". And that too is a forced change as Courtois is injured, else Conte would have opted to play with the same team.

Conte insisted the pressure would not get to him. After their lead at the top of the Premier League was cut to four points by Tottenham on Saturday, Courtois' knock will be horrific news for Chelsea fans.

Conte, however, put the result squarely down to the difference in ambition between the teams.

"I am very happy", he said after the victory at Old Trafford.

While Chelsea is no longer the free-wheeling team seen in the weeks before Christmas, having gone nine league games without a clean sheet, it boasts a formidable record against United. He was replaced by a center back, Zouma, and that unbalanced the team.

United have entered crunch time as they travelled to Belgium midweek to claim a 1-1 draw in Brussels.

Marcus Rashford got the ball rolling for United early on and Ander Herrera added a second shortly after the second-half restart, as the hosts extended their unbeaten league streak to 22 games - the best such run in Europe's five major leagues.

David de Gea is set to return as the goalkeeper for Manchester United after he missed the trip to Sunderland with a minor injury and was an unused substitute in the midweek trip to Anderlecht.

But Phil Jones (foot) and Chris Smalling (knee) remain out and Juan Mata has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a groin injury. Man U goes into this game four pints behind Manchester City and six points behind Liverpool.

Ibrahimovic was asked afterwards whether Mourinho was right to call out his attacking players publicly.

"We have one month to go, it's many games we play", the 35-year-old Swede said in quotes reported by the Daily Telegraph.

"If we win both matches, we are in the top four".

"We must have great enthusiasm to play these last six games, with patience and a great will to fight".
