Chelsea started the brighter of the two sides but still ended up losing 2-0 to Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

It has been a normal occurrence this season for the Blues to play well and still lose a game, and what makes it worse is that Chelsea have lost thrice to Manchester United this season.

Just like in the 4-0 defeat at Old Trafford on the opening weekend of the season, Frank Lampard’s side played better and still lost, and Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic can’t lay hold on why the Blues keep losing to Manchester United.

He said: “We played well in the beginning but it’s always the same against United – we play good, we create chances, we don’t score and then they score from one opportunity.

“We don’t have the three points and that’s the most important thing. It was a good game from us, we played well, like we have for more or less the whole season, but we made some silly mistakes and we lost the points.

“We are still a very young team and we need to improve a lot. Now we will see if we are a great team because we have some tough matches to fight for the fourth position and we need to show ourselves.”
