Three signs Man United’s season is on the brink of collapse
Manchester United had an afternoon to forget on Sunday as they were mauled by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
In a performance that made for uncomfortable viewing for Man United supporters, Antonio Conte’s Chelsea ruthlessly exposed their weaknesses and romped to an eventual 4-0 victory, laying down a huge marker of their own.
The tone was set when Pedro scored after just 33 seconds of play, and Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils never truly recovered. Indeed, the Manchester giants looked rocked by the first goal, which may have somewhat derailed their plans to set up as they did at Liverpool and play defensively for a 0-0 draw.
And following the defeat, there has been plenty of talk that the club could be in serious trouble going forward this campaign – they are now six points off joint leaders Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool and five off of Chelsea in fourth spot.
