How Conte caused Chelsea defeat at Old Trafford

Chelsea started Sunday afternoon game on a high note with Chelsea taking the lead in the 32th minute through Williams Strike.

Though Lukaku restored parity for Manchester United in the 39th minute.

Chelsea lost the game as a result of substitution error, Chelsea coach Conte in the 73rd minute replaced entertaining Edin Hazard with Pedro at the most crucial time of the game when pressure were on both teams, leaving non performing  Morata on the field of play.
Also in the 78th minute, Conte replaced Victor Moses with Oliver Giroud who has no pace, removing two players with pace in a game that you need pace to hold your opponent calls for questioning.

Unjustifiable substitution of Hazard was evident 2 minutes after he was substituted as Manchester United grabbed the second goal to take the lead for the first time in the thrilling encounter.

Though Chelsea scored an equalizer but ruled offside by the Referee, removing entertaining Hazard caused Chelsea the defeat at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
