Carragher: Chelsea looked like relegation contenders at Man United

By Isoccer Staff

CHELSEA looked like relegation strugglers in the 0-0 draw with Manchester
United, according to Jamie Carragher.

The Liverpool legend believes it would have been a ‘travesty’ if United had
somehow lost to the Blues, who struggled to make an impression at Old
Trafford.

Carragher believes Louis van Gaal will be disappointed his side were unable
to capitalise on a woeful first-half performance from the Premier League
champions.

He told the Daily Mail: “It would have been a travesty had Chelsea snatched a
winning goal but, as well as Manchester United played, I’d say they will
still be disappointed not to have collected three points.

“Chelsea for 45 minutes actually looked like a team fighting relegation. They
were there for the taking and it was so easy for United to play through
them.”

Carragher doesn’t believe the hiring of Guus Hiddink will make that much
difference and struggles to see the Blues finishing in the top eight.

He added: “When things were going badly at the start of the season, I still
expected Chelsea to finish in the top four.

“Now I am thinking they will struggle to get into the top eight.

“They have only won one Premier League game a month and I could not believe
how poor they were in the first half. I can’t see how it will suddenly
change.”

United and Chelsea have just two wins between them in 12 Premier League games
after the 0-0 stalemate last night.
