Former Queens Park Rangers forward Rodney Marsh was not impressed with the way Manchester United handled Chelsea winger Eden Hazard earlier this week and made his opinion known on social networking site Twitter.
United played out a goalless draw with Chelsea at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Monday evening.
Hazard started the game and played for the entire 90 minutes, and Marsh was not impressed with the way the Belgium international was handled by the Red Devils’ players.
The former Manchester City star compared the way the United players tackled the ex-Lille star to the rough way Leeds played in the 1970s.
Terrific start by United - great team play - should be leading- not looking like a pub team tonight .....— Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) December 28, 2015

As the above Opta Stats table shows, Hazard was fouled as many as six times, and he himself committed one foul and earned a yellow card.
Over the course of the 90 minutes, the 24-year-old, who can also play as an attacking midfielder, had a pass accuracy of 70%, created one chance, put in two crosses, and attempted five dribbles.
Chelsea are 14th in the Premier League table at the moment with 20 points from 19 matches, just three points above the relegation zone.
