Chelsea continue to be helpless in the 2022-23 season when they fall like a card at Old Trafford to a Manchester United that wants nothing more than a place in next season’s Champions League.

Interim manager Frank Lampard has led Chelsea into the game with just one win since April, showing how weak the London-based side have been this season.

In the meeting at Old Trafford, midfielder Casemiro’s goal in the 6th minute of Manchester United set off alarm bells for Les Bleues.

After the first goal, MU struggled to penetrate the Chelsea defense until the fifth minute of injury time of the first half, when Casemiro provided a great assist for Anthony Martial.

United entered the first half with a 2-0 lead and returned to the same excitement as at the start of the game. But their dominance did not bring a goal until the last 20 minutes of the game.

In the 73rd minute, Bruno Fernandes scored from the penalty spot to raise the score to 3-0 in favor of the Red Devils. Five minutes later, Marcus Rashford scored the fourth goal for coach Erik ten Hag’s men.

Chelsea didn’t come down without a bit of a fight. Loanee club João Félix scored for the Blues in the 89th minute. Unfortunately, it has become a consolation target.

The 4-1 victory cemented Manchester United’s position in the top four. They are currently third in the standings with 72 points from 37 games, two points ahead of fourth-placed Newcastle United, which means a place in the Champions League. League has been secured for United and Newcastle next season.

While Chelsea sit in the worst position since 1993 (12th place) with 43 points from 37 games despite having invested £600m in player signings over the past two transfer windows.
