Sam Allardyce ripped into the Chelsea players during their embarrassing defeat at Manchester United on Sunday.

The Blues were beaten 4-0 in what was new boss Frank Lampard’s first Premier League match as a manager.

What will worry Chelsea fans the most is that they dominated large portions of the match and even came close with both Tammy Abraham and Emerson Palmieri hitting the woodwork.

Meanwhile, Red Devils goalkeeper David de Gea was forced into making some good saves including a smart stop to deny Ross Barkley in the first-half and Emerson after the break.

But Chelsea found themselves behind at half-time thanks to Marcus Rashford’s penalty – the striker winning the spot-kick after Jesse Lingard charged down Andreas Christensen’s sloppy clearance before Kurt Zouma clumsily felled Rashford in the box.

The Blues really fell apart in the second-half though, conceding three goals in 14 minutes to make it an Old Trafford humiliation.

Anthony Martial bagged the second goal while Rashford scored United’s third.

And just after Daniel James scored the fourth goal this was the cue for former manager Allardyce to give his two cents on Chelsea’s diabolical performance.

Allardyce told talkSPORT: “What is most important, the way you play or the result?

Manchester United have not played as well as Chelsea over the 90 minutes but look at the result – 4-0 to Manchester United.

“You crumbled, you went to pieces, you lost your shape, you lost your discipline and you did something that no one should do and that’s chase the game.

“You ultimately fail when you chase anything. You chase, you chase, you fail. You play your way back into the game, you keep your discipline.

Allardyce was very unimpressed with Chelsea, particularly their second-half display

“You’ve been in control of the ball for most of the game and now they’ve fallen apart and actually just let Manchester United do what they want.

“There have been no defensive qualities from Chelsea in those 15-20 minutes.”
