They will want to react, not sure what team we will go with either.
Thought Chelsea were good first half but surprised they didn’t start with Pulisic and Kante, even unfit, he is better then the rest of their midfield!

chelsea did a norwich. play well but don't have the players to do it properly. lampard stupid benching his best players pulisic, giroud and kante. manu haven't really changed. they were so bad in the first half.

wiseryan, maybe saving them for Wednesday?

11 Aug 2019 19:51:15
nah lampard just got cocky. His team is average so you don't really have the option of bedding players like pulisic in. He will definitly play his best team against us though as a lesson learnt. arsenal just about managed it without pepe but they were only playing newcastle. I'm sure if arsenal were playing manu first game of the season, pepe would start or risk losing like chelsea.

Man Utd won 4-0 against Chelsea which is a better result than we managed against Norwich. Let's not be so arrogant and making up silly excuses. Even with some of their better players on the bench, Chelsea still got tanked and if Man Utd haven't changed then I would hate to see them if they do. It was a good result.

Irish, who is saying Utd had a bad result or who is making some type of excuses? Also, who said Utd had a poorer result than we did (neither here nor there, IMO but whatever) vs Norwich? I'm not even sure what your post is even about, really. People are giving their opinions on the Chelsea v Utd game and how Chelsea will fair against us come Wed.
That's it.

Personally, I don't care what result any other team gets in the PL cos as long as LFC wins all their games and I'm definitely not arsed about what result a Utd. team that is far behind us get either. Were you expecting them not to win any games cos I wasn't? They won a game. Who cares? On to the next game.

come on, chelsea were clearly the better team until the penalty. i say chelsea were like norwich because they passed the ball better and worked well as a cohesive team. manu took their chances, chelsea couldnt. we should have beaten norwich like 8 -0 and chelsea should have gotten something out of that match. instead liverpool messed around in the second half and chelsea benched their best players.

It certainly wasn't a 4-0 difference in quality between United and Chelsea. The difference was defensive lapses and the fact United went from 1 nil to 3 nil in under a minute. Chelsea hit the bar twice and de gea was busy whereas United were clinical and took their chances. Wasn't much between the teams overall. Chelsea defended naively to United's counter attacks with a high line against pace of martial rashford and later on James. United were poor at closing down from the front and in midfield and had to defend regularly around their box, Chelsea lacked any potent attackers to hurt them. Nothing I saw suggests much difference to both sides from last season to worry me.

I agree with your assessment, Har_red92. In addition considering how poorly Pogba played and with him losing the ball at will esp. in the first hour of the game, Chelsea simply did not have the quality to capitalize on the gabs that opened up for them. Had Utd played even Norwich with the way Pogba was losing the ball, they would have been punished severely cos that Norwich attack is just brilliant with the way they move the ball with pace, movement and pin-point passing.

Redwolf yeah I think midfield still is a big issue for them. Not enough quality there for them to control games but it looks like counter attacks and getting the ball from back to front quickly will be their main threat. With an improved defence and lukaku not slowing attacks rashford and martial can play to their strenghts. Certain teams will still show up United's frailties though, wolves away next will be an interesting test for them.
