The Chelsea FC legend explains the difference between the defending champions and Manchester United
Pat Nevin believes Manchester United’s power was the difference in last weekend’s 2-1 loss to Chelsea FC.
The Red Devils secured a vital win in the top-four race on Sunday afternoon following a narrow win against the Blues.
Matic managed to marshal Eden Hazard throughout the Premier League clash to keep the Belgian forward quiet.
Romelu Lukaku cancelled out Willian’s opening goal before the Belgian teed up Jesse Lingard to secure a 2-1 victory.
Manchester United dominated the midfield area with Scott McTominay and Matic towering above their Chelsea FC rivals.
Former Chelsea FC winger Nevin claimed that Manchester United’s power was the difference at Old Trafford last weekend.
“In the end, the power one,” Nevin told Irish radio station Newstalk. “Power and physique as much as anything won Man United the game.”
Chelsea FC lost 1-0 to Premier League leaders Manchester City at The Etihad on Sunday.
Manchester United are in second place in the Premier League table and two points ahead of Liverpool FC ahead of their meeting at Old Trafford on Saturday 10 March.
The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term but won the Europa League and the League Cup.
