Man Utd ace Nemanja Matic received THIS note from Jose Mourinho in Chelsea win. See details...

MANCHESTER UNITED defender Eric Bailly handed a note from Jose Mourinho to Nemanja Matic when he was introduced in the win against Chelsea this afternoon.

The centre-back came on for Alexis Sanchez with 10 minutes to go and the Red Devils leading 2-1 in the Premier League showdown.

Willian had given Chelsea the lead, smashing past David De Gea, in the 32nd minute.

But just seven minutes later Romelu Lukaku equalised for Manchester United to the delight of the home crowd.

The game was tight in the second half until substitute Jesse Lingard earned all three points for Mourinho's side.

The England international headed home a Lukaku cross in the 75th minute.

Mourinho put Bailly on for Sanchez to shore up his defence and secure the three points for United.

The Ivory Coast international was handed a note by the Special One which he quickly read before folding up.

Bailly then sprinted onto the field and gave the piece of paper to Matic for him to take Mourinho's instructions on board.

The former Chelsea man looked bemused at first when Bailly handed over the note but quickly read his instructions.

And whatever Mourinho wrote did work as United held on for an important 2-1 victory.

Next up for the Red Devils is an away clash against Crystal Palace on Monday, March 5.
