Manchester United Football Club have been hit and miss over the last few months, with Louis van Gaal’s side showing plenty of inconsistency. Today the team looked great for the majority of the match, but were eventually pegged back, and Louis van Gaal has blamed the referee for a couple of decisions.
“The time was over 6 mins, the ref lets them kick the corner then we have a free pitch, lots of space, he blows the whistle.” Van Gaal begun.
“It’s the second time because he did it in the first half also. I don’t think that’s fair for both teams.”
He has a point, but it does feel somewhat like sour grapes from our manager. You can understand that he’s probably feeling frustrated straight after the game.
Manchester United were good for large portions of the game, but the turning point in the match was when Marouane Fellaini was subbed off for Morgan Schneiderlin. From that point onwards United looked happy to sit back and invite the pressure onto themselves – Chelsea came forward and were eventually rewarded.
