Chelsea lost to Manchester United on Sunday despite having taken the lead in the first half through Willian.

Willian scored the opener for Chelsea in the 32nd minute, but Romelu Lukaku cancelled Chelsea’s lead seven minutes later, and Jesse Lingard scored the winner for Manchester United 15 minutes to the end of the game.

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has revealed his disappointment with the result as the Blues let a leading position slip again.

“I am very disappointed, I think all the team are,” said the Chelsea goalkeeper on the defeat.

“The first half [at Old Trafford] we controlled, we dominated them in their home and we played so well. We scored a goal and then we could have had another one and it is annoying to concede another sloppy goal like on Tuesday against Barcelona. So we went in 1-1 at half-time when we should be leading.

“In the second half they [Man United] started to control the game, it was more equal, and I don’t think they really deserved to win more than us. But that is football and the second half they had more chances but we could have won as well.”
