Gary Neville claimed that N’Golo Kante was the only Chelsea player to perform for the Blues during their disappointing 2-0 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The west London side failed to click into gear against the Red Devils as they slumped to a defeat on a frustrating afternoon for Antonio Conte’s side.

The result dealt a blow to their title hopes and left them just four points clear of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur with six games left to play.

Manchester United took the lead in the seventh minute when Marcus Rashford confidently slotted home after being found by Ander Herrera.

And it was the Spanish midfielder who made it 2-0 shortly after the break when he fired home a deflected effort in the 47th minute.

Speaking during Sky Sports‘ coverage of the game, former Manchester United defender Neville explained just how unimpressed he was with most of Chelsea’s players.

Neville said: “Apart from N’Golo Kante, I can’t think of a single Chelsea player who reached the standards they’ve set themselves this season.”
