Tough schedule and probably is exposing the lack of depth (quality wise) in the squad.

Couple of things from last night, I thought Pogba stepped up to the mark starting to look like the mid fielder that is required. Good on the ball, held it well when needed, few driving runs, some serious attacking passes and follow up runs. Just needs to do this more frequently as we all know.

Anyone notice that in the drink breaks that Ole seems to always go to him and give him the messages and tactics.

I know he has been out for a long time and probably isnt a natural left back but TFM looked badly off the pace at times last night.

Interesting run in to say the least and should leave the squad in good shape for the Europa competition.

I can see the table finishing

Leicester 3rd
Man Utd 4th
Chelsea 5th

just have a feeling chelsea will slip up in both games remaining. Liverpool although have nothing to gain will want to prove a point and i think wolves will nick a point at the bridge

Tottenham will take points off Leicester. But United lose to Leicester and theyíll probably lose out on goal difference.

A hard earned and important win tonight under pressure after Chelsea and Leicester won. 19 games unbeaten now scoring 50 goals and conceding just 8 goals in that run.

More than one eye will be on the West Ham game next Wednesday so should be interesting to see how strong of a side Ole selects for Sundays FA Cup semi final.

Chelsea will not prioritise the FA cup either over top 4! Expect both teams to be different

They rested a few players against Norwich yesterday and have the two extra days to prepare for this cup tie. I'd be surprised if Lampard doesn't choose his first choice 11 to start on Sunday.

There are a lot of ifs and ands but for me Chelsea have to travel to Liverpool 3 days after Cup semi as opposed to United who are at home to West Ham so I'd make a case for Chelsea resting more players for Sunday than Utd?

Yes I know home to Southampton didn't work out exactly swimmingly last week  ;D

Chelsea need at least a point from Anfield to avoid the chance of a convenient draw between Leicester and United on the final day squeezing them out.

I think he wanted out years ago and has just been coasting so hasnít been at the top of his game. Definitely was great in his day but bit of a liability now.

He was never great. Was never better than average.

Iíd have stuck up for De Gea and said he deserved the benefit of the doubt for a long time but enough is enough now. Romero probably should have been playing by right today anyway.

Really poor from Utd as a whole, outworked and out fought from the get go.

First defeat in 20 games and TBH i was expecting Chelsea to win. The United team performance was dreadful and deserved nothing more out of that match though Chelsea was certainly helped along by two woeful errors by DeGea and capped off by a OG by Maguire. 

Finishing in the top 4 is priority but would have to wonder is Uniteds best chance of winning a trophy this season is gone with that defeat this evening?

Pretty crap. Blueprint to beat Utd seems to be press high and hard.

Of course, if they beat the press then youíre snookered.
