While I agree that luck has played a part in Manchester United’s win over Chelsea yesterday, no one can deny that we probably created our own luck. Manchester United had so many players inside their opponent’s penalty box and so committed in playing attacking football and the result so far is 5 wins out of 5 games with 21 goals scored. It was the best start the club has ever made since 1985 and 21 goals scored in 5 games is a new Premier League record. No wonder Sir Alex was so delighted with his squad and I bet he isn’t going to change the team’s approach for the next few games. Why fix it if it ain’t broken?

The game against Chelsea ended with United wining 3 -1 but the score line could have been even bigger. Both sides had plenty of chances to score in such an entertaining game. In the end, Manchester United’s class shown and Chelsea becomes the fifth Premier League team to suffer in the hands of the ruthless Red Devils. The win also saw the team from the Red side of Manchester opening two points gap over their noisy neighbour, Manchester City who drew with Fulham in a game played earlier.
With many players on form, in particular Portuguese winger, Nani, I think many team will find hard to contain the United’s mean machine upfront. You can see how hungry the players are for goal and the centre backs go so very high up field to support the attack. In fact, Phil Jones was inside Chelsea’s penalty box and was instrumental in setting up Manchester United’s third goal.
While many will argue Rooney was lucky when the ball dropped in front of him, nobody could deny how hard Manchester United been working this season. Credit should be given to Nani who continues to pressure Chelsea’s defence and blocked John Terry’s clearance before the ball fell in front Rooney. So, lucky Man Utd? I don’t really care. The truth is we are playing good and exciting football and deserve to be where we are today. Glory Glory Man Utd.
