Chelsea 3 Manchester United 3

What a game man, what a game!

From 0-3 down, we came back to draw 3-3!!! OMG this is exhilarating!

1. WTF were we doing the first 60min I have no idea. It seems the team didn't have any ideas too. Play was lackluster and our defense was all over the place when the goals were scored. Why did Evra let Sturridge get the shot off for the first? No one was marking Mata for the second. And Rio was not marking Luiz when he should be for the third!
2. Sure, we scored the first two with penalties but they were legit and we should have had two more in the first half. We were getting kicked all over the park!
3. Valencia is still a monster. He's carrying the whole team right now. That being said, big props to Evans for a good game, even if he scored the first goal for Chelsea.
4. I feared the worst with de Gea in goal, but aside from still preferring to punch rather than collect inswinging balls, he made a string of really good saves in the last few moments, hence I can't complain.
5. David Luiz is a fucking bully! Same with Ivanovic.
6. The game changed when Scholes came on. We started controlling the midfield better and I think it helped Rooney and Carrick play better as well.
7. The equalizer scored by Chicharito was a beauty. Thank goodness he's always around at the right time.
8. Evra complained alot today maybe because we were getting pushed around alot. I was afraid he'd get a red card soon for dissent. Nonetheless I thought he had a pretty good game aside from being given the slip by Sturridge for the first goal.
9. Carrick had an unusually bad game today. Seemed to have very little ideas until Scholes came on. Seems like the better midfield partnership is Carrick and Scholes. Welbeck was also getting pushed all over the park.
10. A tough month with Tottenham and Liverpool still to come. But so far, it's been good. If we can keep this form, I'm sure we will pip Man Shitty to the title.

What a game!!! It's actually been awhile since we had such a comeback so even with a draw, it feels like at least we got something out of the game when all hope seemed lost in the first 60min.
