Twitter Reactions: Man United & Chelsea Fans Share Their Delight And Despair After The Game

Manchester United and Chelsea locked horns at Old Trafford on blockbuster Sunday. This game has been Box Office over the years and the fans were hoping for yet another intriguing contest despite certain shortcomings. But the outcome proved to be a dream start for one and a nightmare for the other after 90 minutes of the gruelling football.

The Blues conceded early from the spot but reacted sharply and were denied by the woodwork twice in the first half. David De Gea rescued the Red Devils majestically, and moments of defensive vulnerability squandered any comeback hopes. Chelsea conceded thrice after the break and the hosts clinched a boisterous 4-0 win to kick off the new campaign.

Although the scoreline was not at all the true reflection of Chelsea’s attacking flair, it indeed justified their frailty at the back. They lack experience, intensity and leadership traits in the heart of their defence and Kurt Zouma, in particular, was shambolic throughout the evening.

Twitter, as usual, exploded in the aftermath of the final whistle and the United fans, sceptics prior to the tie, did not hide their ecstasy and euphoria on social media following the perfect inception.

Someone rated the new-look backline as league’s best ahead of their bitter rivals Liverpool as well as Manchester City.

A brilliant analogy from one supporter who compared Frank Lampard and Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s style of play to describe the game.

Few of them, however, are cautious and focusing on the upcoming Wolves tie at the Molineux.

Chelsea fans, on the other hand, are dejected but hopeful of a quick turnaround under the tutelage of their club legend.
