According to former Arsenal man, while Speaking on Sky Sports he refused to praise Manchester United for their 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge on Monday evening.
Merson said below:
“It was a big win for Man Utd at Chelsea, but they weren’t good.
“They’re two just-above average teams, if I’m being honest. United winning just covers over the cracks. If Chelsea put their chances away in the first half, the game’s over, but they didn’t.
“Harry Maguire should’ve been sent off and he then scores, so there were a lot of things where you could say with Chelsea they could’ve won the game.”
While the Blues suffered a painful defeat against the Red Devils, they are still in top four on 41 points.
Our next clash against Spurs could be season-defining for Frank Lampard and co.
