The Blues lost our opening game of the Premier League at Old Trafford on Sunday. Marcus Rashford scored twice with Anthony Martial and Daniel James also scoring as the Blues lost 4-0 to Manchester United.

Despite creating more chances and hitting the bar twice, the Blues were enable to score against Manchester United.

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer believes Manchester United were better than Chelsea in providing the killer pass in the final third.

Shearer believes Chelsea players delayed the pass when the Blues got into promising positions with Pedro named as one of the culprits.

“I thought what United were also better at than Chelsea, particularly the second half, is that killer pass,” Shearer told Premier League Productions.

“When they got into the final third, I just felt as if Chelsea got into some good positions but they just delayed that pass.

“Pedro once or twice in that second half could have picked his head up quicker and played the pass quickly.

“United did that far better than Chelsea in the second half and got the rewards.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard believes the scoreline against Manchester United was harsh on Chelsea.

“Poor mistakes for the goal,” Lampard told Sky Sports following the match. ‘We controlled major parts of the first half. Probably poor decisions in the final third.

“In the first half we should be in front. It’s a lot easier for them when they’re 3-0 up. This is a counter-attacking team. They have pace and if you turn over the ball, they will counter attack you. We were the ones on the ball. We have loads of lessons to learn. It was no way near a 4-0.”
