Chelsea moved five points clear at the top of the Premier League table after an emphatic 5-0 win at Swansea City.

Meanwhile, Manchester United underlined their top-four credentials with a 2-0 win at Queens Park Rangers thanks to second-half goals from Marouane Fellaini and James Wilson.

Here is a selection of the best Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order to Saturday’s games.

Former United defender Mikael Silvestre (@IamMSilvestre) heaps praise on De Gea: “@D_DeGea what a save ! #QPRvsMUFC”

One way of putting it, Stan Collymore (@StanCollymore): “Chelsea. Awesome.”

Ex-Liverpool Dietmar Hamann (@DietmarHamann) feels for Swansea: “Swansea getting blown away here. 4-0 after 35 minutes. Ouch.”

Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) can’t help having a giggle at United’s expense: “Think United signed a Falcao look alike”

Unsurprisingly, Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) gets in on the act: “Falca-ouch.”

Spurs legend Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) praises Louis van Gaal’s belated tactical switch: “Fellaini puts Manchester United ahead, funnily enough minutes after LVG switched to 4-4-2 with Di Maria playing deeper.”

Jan Aage Fjortoft (@JanAageFjortoft): “Falcao! I used to think you were the best goal getter …. I want you to score now. Even a BigStar can loose his confidence”

Former United defender Danny Higginbotham (@Higginbotham05) is delighted for James Wilson: “Wilson comes on and changes the game for Manchester United . Time has come for him to get a run in the starting 11.”

Finally, Robbie Savage (@RobbieSavage8) lets us in on a secret: “An ex player ,a very good one at utd told me at 15 Wilson was the best he has ever seen ! Big praise indeed”
