Chelsea's problems keep on mounting as they were beaten 2-0 by Manchester United in their FA Cup fifth-round tie at the Stamford Bridge.

Spanish international Andre Herrera opened the scoring for the Red Devils in the 31st minute, and in-form midfielder Paul Pogba added one more just moments before the half time whistle.

Chelsea tried to get back into the game in the second half and had the majority of the ball after the interval. However, they failed to make the most of it and the Red Devils secured a comfortable win.

The Blues enjoyed 67% of possession during the game and had 11 shots on goal as compared to Manchester United's seven.

Chelsea's are currently witnessing a rough patch after a promising start to the season and are 6th in the Premier League table, one point behind the 'top-four'. They lost three out of their last five games and Maurizio Sarri's future at the Stamford Bridge is in serious danger.

They will play Malmo FF for the second leg of the Europa League round-of-32 tie next before squaring off against Manchester City for the final of the Football League Cup on February 24.

On the other hand, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revied Manchester United's season after a poor start of their campaign under Jose Mourinho. The Red Devils are currently fourth on the Premier League table and are now the favorites to qualify for the Champions League next season, ahead of Chelsea and Arsenal.

They will play Liverpool in the league next before making a trip to London for playing Crystal Palace at the Selhurst Park on February 28.

Football fans on Twitter reacted with plenty of humor and wit to Chelsea's defeat, and here are some of the best tweets.
