Well what a great game of football, 120 minutes, nine goals and a come from behind Chelsea victory that included a last kick of the game penalty to send the game to extra time.
Both teams made changes but both sides were relatively strong with a blend of fringe youth players and squad members mixing with regular first teamers to create a blend that lead to a brilliant game dynamic.
This time the second half was not ruined with red cards and we were treated to a goal fest with the pendulum swinging backwards and forwards across the 90 minutes.
Whilst both defences were porous the attacking prowess on display made the game exhilarating and meant that we were on our seats for the full hour and a half.
We saw an inspired performance from Victor Moses whilst if Cesar Azpilicueta and Oriol Romeu struggled but once we brought on the big guns we looked like scoring at every opportunity.
After the weekend we needed something to raise our spirits and breed positivity coming into another important month in the Premier League.
Scoring 5 goals and coming from behind is a perfect tonic, confidence in a can you might say.
Final Word: Well done to the ref, despite giving three penalties he got the big decisions right, only criticism was that Scott Wooton stayed on the pitch.
Surprised how difficult chelsea’s star players found it against united’s kids. Chelsea have definitely been found out in the last few games and I expect a lot of teams to adopt a similar style(wide players) against them, these last few days could prove very costly over the season.
We changed six players, defensively work is needed but I think “found out is a little strong and few teams have the wingers of quality of nani when he wants to play
