Frank Lampard’s team were defeated in a home game by Manchester United to leave the race for the top 4 open. The blues failed to score and injuries to main players contributed to the loss.
Anthony Martial opened the score and Harry Maguire sealed the win for Man. United. The loss means that Lampard’s men are likely to face a Champions League qualification dogfight that extends all the way to 10th place Arsenal.
Chelsea currently sits in 4th place behind 3rd place Leicester City, Manchester City and 1st place Liverpool. Chelsea now sits on 41 points in the Premier League table, while Manchester United have moved to 38 points in 7th place.
Lampard was furious to see Maguire not get a red card after kicking Michy Batshuayi in an off-field tussle. Maguire went on to kill the game for Chelsea when he scored the second goal with a header.
Chelsea went on to face more misfortune in the second half after Kurt Zouma’s goal was ruled outside by VAR with a push by Cesar Azpilicueta.
