Manchester United progressed to the sixth round of the FA Cup by beating a hugely disappointing Chelsea side 2-0 at Stamford Bridge tonight.
First-half goals from Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba were enough to seal the win for United, with the Chelsea faithful turning on their manager Maurizio Sarri after yet another insipid display by the Blues.
Manchester United have now won 11 out of 13 since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge, while Sarri’s side have been in disastrous form so far in 2019, leading former Red Devils defender John O’Shea to admit after tonight’s game that the gap between the two sides in terms of performance at the moment is huge.
”When you look at the quality Chelsea possess, you think they could have turned it on,” O’Shea told BBC Five Live.
”It wouldn’t have surprised me if they had. United hadn’t won at Chelsea for a few years but form was key.
”Confidence and ability wise at the moment, United are streets ahead of Chelsea.”
