It’s unsure what to have expected at the Stamford Bridge on Monday night with a depleted Manchester United side facing a full fledged Chelsea side.
That was a joke. Everyone expected Jose Mourinho to suffer not only boos from Chelsea fans, but also a loss to Conte’s men because of his lack of strikers.
The game ended 1-0 in favour of Chelsea who ran the Red Devils ragged for the most part of the game. Just in case you missed the solitary goal scored by Kante, see it below:
The sending off of Herrera was a game killer. Please don’t ask me if it was worth a red card as I’m still unsure of why a player’s first two tackles in a game will earn him two yellow cards.
Maybe I’ll have time to do a comprehensive analysis of the quarter finals of the FA Cup and an analysis of the things to come in the semi-finals later in the week.
That being said, you can add this other name to Jose Mourinho’s long list of names: Jose ‘Judas’ Mourinho. Nice one Blues! Thanks for giving us something to talk about throughout this week.
Have I mentioned how Hazard was unplayable, Rojo’s Man-of-the-Match performance, Valencia, Diego Costa’s new ‘acting role‘ and The Touchline Bust up?
