Manchester United’s 1-1 draw against Chelsea will leave a bitter
taste in the mouth of fans who have become all too acclimatized with the disappointment
of dropped points this season.
Once again, the Red Devils one goal lead looked convincing
enough to earn them the three points. It wasn’t to be after another late
mistake costed them a Costa equalizer.
Memphis Depay has definitely failed to live up to his £25 million
price tag and made himself the villain after his 90th minute brain
Memphis has been far from magical this season for Manchester United
United were deep in Chelsea’s half as fresh substitute Memphis
controlled the ball near his opposition’s corner flag. Two options would have
been weighing on his mind. To be the hero and pass the ball to a free Morgan Schneiderlin
in the box, or be the team man and hold the ball up at the corner flag.
Temptation was too great for the out of form winger, who
opted to play a 15 yard ball to the German in the penalty area.
His misdirected pass led to a late Chelsea counter,
resulting in the 90th minute equalizer.
Thierry Henry made his feelings clear about Depay’s lack of effort on the panel of Sky
Fans and pundits were quick to blast Memphis on twitter this morning
The gap looks too great for Manchester to make an outside
run at the title, although it is still mathematically possible.
United goalkeeper David de Gea was inspirational away from
home, making three crucial saves in front of a hostile Chelsea crowd.
Chelsea on the other hand sit in 13th place and
scarily only seven points clear of relegation. A positive that they can take
from this game is that they are undefeated since the appointment of manager
Guus Hiddink following Jose Mourinho’s fall from grace.
GUNNING FOR GLORY
Arsenal has defeated Bournemouth and are still in the hunt
for their first Premier League title in over a decade.
The Gunners brave gung-ho styled approach to the away game
at Dean Court paid off immensely.
Mesut Özil haunted The Cherries once again, scoring a
beautifully hit volley after Bournemouth’s defenders left the German with too
much space in the box.
The Cherries simply had no answer for the German maestro
Arsenal were simply ruthless today, scoring a goal one
minute later through a string of passes orchestrated by Özil once again.
The Gunners are starting to look really strong, as we reach
the final stretch of the 2015/16 season.
Next week’s game against first placed Leicester could be the
title defining match.
