Reports are out claiming that Kurt Zouma has revealed his sole tactics on the weekend were to keep Marouane Fellaini quiet.

The 20-year old Chelsea youngster was instructed by manager Jose Mourinho to shadow Manchester United midfielder Fellaini during their clash at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and it worked a treat as the Blues saluted 1-0.

Of the tactical move, Zouma told the club’s official website: “I had to stay with Fellaini because we knew he is on fire at the moment.

“He has scored a lot of goals so I had to keep an eye on him, and I think I did it well. I had to be physical with him and stay close to him.

“The game was very difficult. The most important thing was that we had one chance and we scored. We defended very well. Manchester United didn’t have many chances to score. We stayed compact.”
