Why United fans think Mourinho is behind Chelsea’s poor run

Manchester United supporters believe Jose Mourinho‘s public spat with Antonio Conte has impacted Chelsea's results in recent weeks.

Conte reacted angrily to Mourinho’s insinuation that he acts like a ‘clown’ on the touchline and responded by calling the Portuguese a ‘little man’ and labelling him ‘senile’.

Mourinho controversially brought up Conte’s previous match-fixing charge and United fans are confident the Special One’s mind games have been behind Chelsea’s poor run of form.

Since Mourinho’s match-fixing comment, Chelsea has recorded three goalless draws on the bounce and Conte’s players were booed off the pitch following their poor performance at home to Leicester on Saturday afternoon.

It wouldn’t be the first time Mourinho has got inside a rival manager’s head. He truly is the master of the mind games. Following Chelsea’s goalless draw with Leicester at Stamford Bridge, United fans began mocking the Italian.
