Why Chelsea's two remaining league games are far harder than they look

May JohnsonMay 07, 2019

The mistake was shown on the stadium's big screen just before De Gea came out for the second half, and Barcelona fans bowed to him, mockingly, and chanted his name as he took his position in goal for the restart.

They are suffering at the end of a long, hard season and I still feel they have done incredibly well to be where they are when you consider everything that has been going on, with that lack of new faces and their wait to get into their new ground. In fact, there's an argument to say he shouldn't be the No. 1 'keeper at United for its final two games of the season.

It was the latest awful error from a goalkeeper who is quite clearly having a crisis in confidence, although I think Solskjaer will stick with him for their remaining fixtures - and rightly so, because he has plenty of credit in the bank from his previous performances for the club.

Here Press Association Sport takes a look at some moments the Spaniard would probably rather forget.

With Spurs and Arsenal losing their respective games, bagging all three points at Old Trafford would have done wonders for the Red Devils as well as the Blues, but it wasn't to be. We've got to make sure we turn up, win the next two games, play well and you never know.

Solskjaer rightly remains adamant that De Gea will not be dropped.

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri is concerned by his own injury worries after Rudiger was helped off the field because of a problem with his knee.

"We played the final in the League Cup, we are fighting for the top four, we are in the semi-finals of the Europa League".

Speaking after the United game, Sarri felt Rojo's booking for his challenge on Willian was insufficient punishment. We have to accept everything from the referee, it is not easy for the referee.

With just two games to go, Chelsea are in fourth place, two points behind Tottenham in third, and with an advantage of two and three points over Arsenal and United respectively.

"My opinion - the yellow card was not enough, of course".

"Eden is playing very well, he fights on the pitch and so I am very happy with him".
