Frank Lampard reveals one area where Man United were better than Chelsea in Yesterday's 4-1 defeat.

Manchester United delivered a compelling performance against Chelsea at Old Trafford, securing a convincing 4-1 victory that solidified their place in the top four.

The scoreline itself serves as an accurate reflection of the current state of both Manchester United and Chelsea.

Chelsea finds themselves in a turbulent phase, enduring a string of disappointments. Despite displaying flashes of quality throughout the match, they were ultimately outclassed by a dominant United side.

In fact, United's 4-1 triumph could have been even more comprehensive. Surprisingly, the Red Devils fell short of their Expected Goals total of 5.21, which is a measure of the quality of chances created.

Following the defeat, Chelsea's caretaker manager, Frank Lampard, acknowledged Manchester United's clinical display in his comments to the club's website.

He said, "They [Man United] had a clinical nature in front of goal. We were the better football team in the middle chunk of the game. In terms of possession and chances created, we were at least on par with them, if not better. However, to find ourselves 2-0 down in that situation indicates our current position."

Lampard emphasized the disparity in clinical finishing between the two teams, highlighting United's effectiveness in front of goal compared to Chelsea's lack thereof. He also noted that Chelsea's individual defensive lapses contributed to the final result.

While the term "clinical" may not typically be associated with Manchester United's performances this season, it is a relative assessment. Chelsea did have opportunities to score in the first half but failed to convert them, whereas United capitalized on the crucial moments.
