Manchester United defeated Chelsea 4-0 in our opening game of the season, in what was Frank Lampard’s first competitive game as Chelsea manager.
Despite Chelsea’s fine display in the opening stages of the game, it was United who opened the scoring and eventually won the game 4-0.
For all Chelsea’s fine play on the night, United would score from defensive mistakes or swift counterattacking play.
Ahead of the Carabao Cup clash at Stamford Bridge, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that Chelsea were the better team in our game against United on the opening day of the season.
He said: “I think Frank has done a good job because the performance against us was good. The result was bad. We held our hands up then as well and said 4-0 was flattering.
“We got pegged back and they pressed us but we scored two goals within a minute, the second and third, which decided the game for us. But we didn’t think we were 4-0 better than them. It is going to be an interesting game. We don’t make it easy for ourselves in the cups with the draws.”
