Manchester United seemed on their way to claim all three points against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, before Diego Costa grabbed an injury-time equalizer.
Jesse Lingard had given the lead to the Red Devils earlier in the game. United fans were left frustrated as they witnessed three points slipping out of their grasp late.
A lot of them decided to put the blame on Louis van Gaal for his late substitutions.
Morgan Schneiderlin replaced Marouane Fellaini on the 79th minute, and Memphis Depay came on for Jesse Lingard on the 87th minute. Incidentally, it was Depay who lost the ball in the build-up to the Chelsea equalizer.
Don’t think there has been a time where LVG has got his subs right tbh.

We’ve played good football for 3 games now & I’m devastated we didn’t get the win we deserved. Lvg did well but the clueless subs continue.

LVG needs to start making smarter substitutions.

I got it wrong and so did LvG. Fellaini should of stayed on.

Why keep LVG ??? Why why why ???
He has failed to get top 4 it’s out of reach.
Get rid of the virus that has ruined he club LVG.

If LVG got out of his chair to tell the team to keep the ball we may have won it but no he just sits there making notes. #MUFC

We didn’t go for the kill after we scored & our substitutions (like all season) were wrong. That’s down to LVG #mufc

That match was ours to win but LVG’s stupid changes spoilt the good game the boys have been working hard for since the beginning of it

Then this Van Gaal clown will claim we’re still in the title race…!! pic.twitter.com/ynD1N14CDB

For me, Van Gaal should start using Periera as an option over Memphis. Brilliant talent being wasted on the bench and Memphis has been awful

Conclusions. Good United up to goal. Bad United after. So passive, Van Gaal’s way. Happy to concede initiative. Looking forward to his P45
