Chelsea Vs. Manchester United, 2012 Premier League: A Chaotic Disconnect

Manchester United are putting a bit of pressure on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, with Antonio Valencia making a nuisance of himself against Jose Bosingwa. David Luiz managed to bail out his teammate, but couldn't clear the ball quite enough, giving Ryan Giggs the opportunity to take a shot as well.

While the visitors seem to have settled down a bit, Chelsea continue to look chaotic, uncertain of what, exactly, their plan is meant to be. Without Didier Drogba, away on international duty with the Ivory Coast, Fernando Torres leads the line -- and of course, much will be said about his inability to get a shot on target.

Rather than press forward, United seems to be of the mindset that, eventually, the Blues will screw up on their own. And it's working, with Chelsea giving away possession. Unfortunately for the visitors, United can't keep the ball, either. Everyone just looks rather...cold.
