This afternoon at Wembley, Chelsea lost 3-1 to Manchester United. That result has made it 4 defeats out of our last 4 pre-season games and you have to ask should we be worried?

Ok many of you would say its a nothing game, final preseason game and not to take much notice looking at the new season but it looked apparent today that we are lacking fitness ahead of our first league game in 6 days.

Let's face it, apart from a spirited fight back after the substitutions were made we never looked like troubling Van Der Sar today in goal apart from an Ivanovic header from a corner in the first half. The introduction of Drogba and Danny Sturridge in particular provided Chelsea with fresh legs and we began to control the game and create chances. One of which Kalou finished with a simple tap in to make it 1-2 at the time.

However, United looked sharper to me. They opened our defence wide open for all three goals and you have to say for the first goal we have little argument. Scholes, in plenty of space, played a ball over the top to Rooney who had made the run behind Ashley Cole, who first time played a cross to Valencia who made the opposite run to Rooney and cut inside, as the ball came across Valencia was unmarked and tapped home to make it 1-0 at half time.

United made it two in the second half when once more a ball behind our left back position allowed the cross to come in and once more an unmarked United forward, this time Hernandez tapped home from 8 yards to make it 2-0.

After we made a game of it when the subs were made and Kalou had made it 1-2 with minutes and injury time to spare it looked as though we were on the front foot but United being United got their foot on the ball to slow the game down, and Berbatov made a run this time behind our back four, the ball played into him and lobbed Hilario who for some reason was already on the edge of his box, into the empty net to make it 3-1 and it was game over.

United will celebrate, Chelsea will say it didn't really mean anything although I have to ask, if we had won would you feel that way?, but its plain to see we are lacking fitness and can you see that much of a difference come Saturday against DiMatteo's West Brom/

So I am asking you fellow Chelsea fans are you worried?
