Manchester United’s 19-game unbeaten run is over, and emphatically so.
United fell to an embarrassing 3-1 defeat at the hands of Frank Lampard’s Chelsea. The Red Devils looked lackluster throughout and were swept aside by the Blues.
United architectured their own downfall and Chelsea were happy to follow the blueprint and inflict defeat on Solskjaer’s men.
Here’s the good, bad, and the ugly from the defeat.
Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
An absolutely shambolic performance from the Englishman. Awful on the ball, didn’t organize the defence properly, and scored an own goal.
Assisted Mason Mount for Chelsea’s second goal with a horrible back pass. Poor marking for the first goal and poor all around.
Aaron Wan Bissaka
Just about every touch was wayward. Didn’t impact the game at all.
Gutless performance from the Brazillian. Very safe with his passing and zero intensity in his play. Needs to do more to earn a spot in the team.
Looked slow, lethargic, and fatigued. Was caught on the ball more than once and was uninspired with his distribution throughout.
Championship performance from a Championship player.
Looked totally off the pace. Got into the game more when moved wide left but couldn’t make an impact.
David De Gea
If ever a disasterclass was personified by an individual, it would be David De Gea. An absolute horror show in goal from the Spanish stopper. Two absolutely terrible errors from basic goalkeeping situations gifted Chelsea a 2-0 lead. Ole would perhaps have been better off sticking with Sergio Romero.
