    Chelsea have taken all season to concede 4 goals - we knocked that out last weekend against Watford.

    Amateurs.

    Keane really sums it up: that Chelsea team is a serious problem to deal with. Just hoping that Carrick has found a way to slow them down enough for us to be in this game for as long as possible.

    First warning shot, courtesy of Ziyech. Dave has it well covered.

    CHO now after an AWB miscue. A more difficult save now required from Dave.

    3 mins gone and Bailly nearly with an assist for Ziyech and then Lindelof flubs a tackle on Hudson-Odoi …

    Lindelof out-muscled by 5’11 Timo Werner. Going to be a long game ..

    Right side of United's backline (AWB-Lindelof) clearly being targeted early on by Chelsea.

    Wow - DDG actually came out! Maybe realises he needs to be more sweeper keeper now :)

    Giving up the ball way to cheaply: Sancho, then Telles. Need to cut that out. Feels like a matter of time unfortunately. Chelsea with the lion share of the possession and when United do have it, they haven't been able to do much at all...

    Ziyech free shot edge of the box - we are defending very deep, McT almost a CB at times.

    Finally a good move going forward for United, started by Matic for Sancho. Bruno ends up with the ball and completely wastes it unfortunately.

    Sancho bollocking Bruno for it too. There’s trying high risk stuff because it’s worth the risk, and there’s not even trying to make the right decision.

    Not seeing any evidence of a better press from Bruno than we get from Ronaldo. Equally guilty of not properly picking up a free man.

    Not much gegen in our press - Rangnick going to gave his work cut with some of these players.

    NBC and their NBC Sports and Peacock app bait and switch. Let's just get this over and put out Peacock Sports already and just fold NBC sports into the peacock app.

    Another superb save from a fierce Rudiger shot, as he pushes his shot onto to the crossbar.
    Wouldn't have counted if it went in but well done all the same from Dave.

    Time going by very slowly in this game also: still a little under 15mins left in this half...

    Very dangerous ball from Bruno straight to CHO, who takes a crack but again Dave has got it covered. United living on the edge so far but still holding on somehow.

    Cheap fall from Fred but Rudiger just loves a good confrontation, doesn't he? :cool:

    Given the context of the fixture, could have been a lot worse.

    Need to stay in it and hope the subs can do something.

    Im not angry or surprised.

    I just dont see any subs changing the game. Im not sure how much Greenwood has trained lately, but its just him, Ronaldo and Donny (for Mctominay)

    Sancho! 0-1! Monster error from Jorginho on Bruno's long clearance. Cool finish on his part.

    2 in 2 for Jadon: scary hours! :cool:

    Good run from Rash too - helped make it an easier finish for Sancho to use the decoy.

    Game perfectly suited for United now, with Chelsea having to commit more. There could opps on the counter.
    Some fresh legs soon wouldn't hurt.

    Ronaldo ready to come on. Sancho said to be the one making way for him.
