Man Utd brutally troll Chelsea in reminder of opening-day 4-0 battering

By | 24th August 2019

MANCHESTER UNITED have cheekily trolled Chelsea with a reminder of their opening-day battering of the Blues.

In Frank Lampard‘s first game since returning to the club as manager, he watched on as Marcus Rashford scored twice, with Anthony Martial and Dan James also netting.

Today, Manchester United are back at Old Trafford as they welcome Crystal Palace for their third Prem game of the season.

The club’s Twitter account tweeted out: “Sunny Saturday afternoons at Old Trafford. Talk to us, Reds: how are you feeling?”

But instead of adding the hash-tag “MUNCRY” they put “MUNCHE”.

That of course would be Manchester United vs Chelsea.

But to cleverly correct themselves, the club then posted a quick response.

They wrote: “*#MUNCRY. Wish we were playing Chelsea again, though…”

RIVALRY RENEWED

United take on Palace as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to make it seven points from their first three games.

Paul Pogba was talk of the town and not for the right reasons after the Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw at Wolves.

The Frenchman stepped up to take a penalty with the scores level, and missed, after Rashford had netted from the spot the previous week.

And the United squad are now believed to have demanded that Rashford is returned to spot kick duties.


Crystal Palace meanwhile have yet to score a goal this season, drawing 0-0 at home to Everton and losing 1-0 at Sheffield United.

All eyes for Eagles fans will be on the performance of talisman Wilfried Zaha after he handed in a transfer request but failed to gain a summer move.

Fascinatingly, Zaha will go up against his old Palace team-mate, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, after the latter’s £50m move this summer.
