Chelsea 5-0 Man Utd Highlights
Chelsea routed Man United 5-0 at Stamford Bridge to end United’s 29-match unbeaten run.
It was the first Premiership match United had lost since they went down 3-1 to Middlesbrough last December – a run of 29 games without defeat.
Chelsea, inspired by a two-goal effort from Gustavo Poyet, were in stunning form and they made a mockery of the visitors’ status as runaway title favourites.
United played most of the match with just 10 men, after Nicky Butt was sent off for a act of sheer petulance.
But the red card could hardly be said to have changed the game – as by that stage Chelsea were already 2-0 up after an amazing start that had seen them take the lead straight from the kick-off.
Indeed so impressive was the Blues’ demolition act that the last 30 minutes resembled a training match, as by then they were four goals up and destined for victory.
