Gary Neville didn’t hold back in his criticism of Manchester United’s catastrophic display against Chelsea, insisting their best performer was their away support.
Jose Mourinho‘s side begun poorly at Stamford Bridge, conceding a sloppy, totally avoidable goal after just 30 seconds.
Man United’s afternoon only got worse: a mixture of static defending and total ineptitude in front of goal led to a humiliating, completely deserved 4-0 battering.
Speaking during the game, Neville summed up United’s afternoon by insisting that their unfailingly vocal away supporters served as the only positive aspect of the visitors’ afternoon.
“Man United’s best performers today have been the away fans,” he said.
No matter what the score is, no matter how bad things get for Mourinho’s side, United fans will be there in numbers, demonstrating an unswerving level of support for the club they love.
Aside from a short period early on in both the first and second-half, Chelsea were in complete control: faster, stronger, clearly more knowledgeable of their game plan. And yet, in the stands, the noise primarily came from a small pocket of United supporters, whilst Chelsea fans could only muster a few *really original* bars of “Who are ya?” and “What a waste of money* at Paul Pogba.
United didn’t turn up today, but their supporters certainly did.
