Chelsea won Manchester United 1-0 on Sunday at Stamford Bridge to cut the gap with United to just one point.
Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has revealed his team had known how Chelsea would play but couldn’t stop Chelsea as they fell asleep.
“I think it was two teams there who can defend and who have got very good attacking players,” Smalling told MUTV.
“I think it was always going to be a close game and we just fell asleep on their one big chance, unfortunately.
“It was disappointing from us because we’d watched a lot of their videos and we knew about Azpilicueta coming up and putting in those crosses.
“So for us to know what their game plan was and to fall asleep is very disappointing.”
