Chelsea didn't have a shot on target in a league game for the first time in almost a decade.

Chelsea, which held a 13-point lead after beating Stoke 2-1 on March 18, has lost two of its last four games.

Chelsea's team manager Antonio Conte reacts during the English Premier League soccer match between Manchester United and Chelsea at Old Trafford stadium in Manchester, Sunday, April 16, 2017.

'They didn't seem to change, that's what surprised me more than anything.

"It is very simple and in this case the fault is with the coach. The league is open and we have a 50 per cent probability to win the league".

Liverpool are unbeaten since losing at Leicester in late February and now lead City by two points, although Pep Guardiola's team have a game in hand in the race for an automatic spot in the Champions League group stage.

"I had the feeling before this match but now totally convinced, with 11 players at Stamford Bridge in the second game [the 1-0 FA Cup defeat to Chelsea in March] we would be playing against Tottenham [Hotspur] at Wembley this weekend [instead of Chelsea]". Rashford excelled up front, stretching Chelsea's center backs with the kind of movement and pace that Ibrahimovic would not be able to offer. The in-form north Londoners are in impressive form, but their seven-game winning streak will be put under big pressure by a run-in that is far tougher than Chelsea's.

Herrera was tasked with man-marking Eden Hazard throughout the match and Neville picked the Spaniard as the Man of the Match for Sky Sports after the game.

"He spent most of the first half [stroking his chin]". Showing his tactical masterclass he showed why he is known as "The Special One".

Sunday's defeat to Manchester United should give Chelsea fans a number of reasons for concern, but one in particular may stand out above all others.

Thibaut Courtois reportedly sat out the match with an ankle injury which was sustained during the filming of an National Basketball Association advert, but it was Marcos Alonso who was more missed in Manchester. Nemanja Matic, Victor Moses, Cesar Azpilicueta and Kurt Zouma also completed less than 70% of their passes in the first half.

Massive win and delighted to score another goal??

The 19-year-old, handed a rare opportunity to start in the No.9 role, took Antonio Conte's men to pieces with a seemingly endless stream of powerful runs in behind.
