Jose Mourinho’s return to his old stomping grounds did not go well, as Manchester United were handed a thrashing by a brilliant Chelsea side last night.
Masterminded by the Blues’ new manager Antonio Conte, the Red Devils were never in the match as Pedro gave Chelsea the lead inside the first minute.
The more frustrating part of the defeat was the lack of desire among the United players. They did not seem to have the urgency or the conviction that Chelsea possessed, and were largely static for most of the game- especially Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
After the humiliating defeat, some of the Manchester United players were seen not giving a damn and smiling along with the Chelsea players. Zlatan was pictured being happy and swapping jerseys with Eden Hazard like he’d just won the match and Martial was seen chatting casually with N’Golo Kante.
The defeat would obviously hurt the Red Devils and their fans- but such behavior from their idols and such a blatant lack of passion for the team is going to hurt them more.

Nothing's worse than being beat 4-0 right?
Wrong! seeing Utd players smiling and swapping shirts on the pitch after the game is sickening 😷

Seeing those pictures of United players smiling and carrying on makes me wish Roy Keane still played for us. Would have broke their arses.

Can't understand how those United players can go about the pitch after FT smiling and swapping shirts. Are they not totally humiliated?

No players should be smiling with their mates or fellow countryman after being humiliated by your opponents. #mufc
