Still unbeaten in either the Champions League or in domestic competitions, United, who are two points behind local rivals City in the Premier League, are in position to challenge for their first league title since 2013.
Chelsea take on United at Stamford Bridge on 5 November with their relationship having already been tested by a post-match incident in the same fixture last season, when Mourinho suggested Conte's celebrations on the touchline had been disrespectful to the former Chelsea manager.
But this was a totally different atmosphere and it will not be a game the Belgian will want to remember as he gifted the visitors the only goal of the game.
"He is an experienced manager who knows how to plot through a season and come out winners at the end of it". "He was talking too much about Chelsea last season too".
Svilar had made his first team debut four days earlier at the Algarve Stadium as Benfica eased past Olhanense in the Portugal Cup.
Keane believes "the clean sheets will allow United to build foundations to get trophies", while Scholes feels that it is acceptable for United to play cautiously now because "they haven't been in a position to win the league".
"I've never been to Huddersfield", said the well -travelled Mata, "But I know it's not far from Manchester and I know that their football team normally plays a compact 4-4-1-1".
However, with the help of goal-line technology, the referee confirmed that the ball had gone over - and Svilar punted the ball away in anger.
Luiz was substituted after clearly picking up a leg injury in the first 45 minutes, but complained over being withdrawn when he was finally replaced by Pedro. Pogba, David De Gea, Anthony Martial, Romelu Lukaku are United's best players at the moment. He's brilliant and he has brought this real sense of confidence to the fans, the town and the club.
Mourinho took a swipe at Conte this week after insisting he doesn't cry about injuries.
"I must protect players". We went to Liverpool with two midfield players and nothing else.
