‘I never want to see him play for the club again’ – These Chelsea fans react to ’embarrassing’ performance after 4-0 defeat to Manchester United

These Chelsea fans were livid with the team after this afternoon’s ’embarrassing’ 4-0 defeat vs Manchester United, not exactly the start Lampard would’ve hoped for.

After a closely contested first-half between the two sides Chelsea seemed to fall off the wagon in the final half an hour of today’s season opener against rivals Manchester United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side put the sword to a helpless defence and destroyed the Blues with their devastating counter-attack.

Chelsea’s defence simply had no answer for United’s attacking stars like Marcus Rashford.

One star that faced a large amount of criticism from fans following their performance was club captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

The Spaniard simply doesn’t have what it takes to be a solid full-back anymore – the modern style of winger seems to run riot when facing up agains the ace.

Perhaps the decision to use Azpilicueta as a centre-back a few years ago has come back to bite the Blues, the silver lining is that youngster Reece James will now look increasingly likely to take the first-choice right-back spot once he returns from injury.

Check out some reaction below:

Chelsea face Liverpool next on Wednesday evening in the European Super Cup before hosting Leicester in the league on Sunday.

After today’s half-hearted showing the Blues will be hoping that they aren’t embarrassed for the second time in the space of a few days against the Reds.

The likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino will be licking their lips after seeing the Blues’ inability to stop the counter today.
