Viral tweet proves how Man Utd and Chelsea have greatly declined since 2008 when both teams were at the top and brimming with stars.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Manchester United once dominated the footballing world. They were often seen as the gold standard. There were very few that could equal them let alone surpass. Sir Alex Ferguson and his boys ruled the Premier League with an Iron Fist.
The same can be said about Chelsea, who made a mark in the early 2000’s and continued to grow at a rapid pace. Both teams gathered fans from all over the world who supported them with every bone in their body. However, a lot has changed in the last decade. The two teams have now fallen from their pedestal in remarkably sorry fashion.
Manchester United vs Chelsea may not be at the level of the EL Classico but it is still a very eagerly watched match with both fans rooting for their teams to pull one over. Both sets of supporters realise that the teams playing tonight is nowhere near the best they have ever fielded. However, a Viral tweet has now pointed out the stark contrast in quality on both sides in comparison to the ones in 2008.

There are obviously talented players on both Manchester United and Chelsea’s rosters. However, they are made to look like lambs in front of the Lionesque team that graced the field in the 2008 Champions League final. United had won that match via penalty shootouts. It looks like United will take the match tonight as well via a penalty.
Earlier in the match, Kurt Zouma fouled Marcus Rashford in the penalty area. VAR confirmed the Penalty and the young Englishman slotted it behind the net. Martial doubled the score in the second half before Rashford added another to take the score to 3-0.
If United win tonight, they will have remained unbeaten against Chelsea at the Old Trafford in their last 7 premier league meetings. Winning 5 and drawing 2.
