Chelsea have cruised to an easy win over Man Utd at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.
Of course, we are always happy to see United get a hiding, but the ease with which Conte’s men have sliced through has made some fans wonder why we couldn’t do the same thing.
There were some mitigating circumstances — it was the first game after the international break and some players were rusty, Mourinho opted far more defensive tactics at Anfield that at Stamford Bridge, and we were missing two of our most important midfielders through injury.
Here’s what some fans have been saying:

Liverpool couldn’t score a single goal against *this* United team…

This would’ve been the scoreline against Liverpool if United didn’t park the bus 💭

United battered by Chelsea, who were battered by Arsenal, who were beaten by Liverpool.

@LevelTwoRogue I’m about 3 minutes away from a conspiracy about the difference in United’s defence between the Liverpool and Chelsea games.

If united opened up this way against Liverpool it could have been 6 or more.

How the fuck did Liverpool not spank United. 🙄
