Blues slip to home defeat vs ManU (0-2)

Chelsea were beaten by goals in both halves as a frustrating night at Stamford Bridge ended in defeat for Frank Lampard’s side. Pedro was back to the starting eleven and played the full 90 minutes of the game.

Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire did the damage in 20 minutes either side of half-time, both headers buried beyond Willy Caballero and into the Blues net. Yet the hosts also had the ball in the back of the net twice, chalked out on both occasions by VAR.

Kurt Zouma thought he had levelled not long after his half-time introduction but the video officials spotted a foul by Cesar Azpilicueta in the build-up, before the offside law was enforced to the millimetre as Olivier Giroud’s header was ruled out for a stray toe behind the line of the last defender, thwarting any hopes of a late comeback.

The result leaves us fourth in the Premier League table, one point clear of our nearest challengers Tottenham, who we host next weekend.
