Mixed reaction from fans

Most United fans are remaining upbeat on the Reds' title chances despite the disappointing late defeat at rivals Chelsea.

Here are some extracts from our Talking Reds message board:

Ken Martens
"Disappointed to lose. Still confident the title is ours though."

Sean Wood
"Today was a massive massive game for us and we should have started with the best 11 players available to us, regardless of the game next week with Barca."

"The truth is, we could afford to lose this game, and if it means beating Barca to go to the Champions League final because we rested Ronaldo and Evra, I'll take that any day! We will beat West Ham and Wigan, it's still in our hands."

"Our big mistake today was not going out to win the match. When we actually managed to string some decent passes together and put the ball in the box, we looked far more dangerous than they did."

Wayne Rainey
"I loved the reaction at the end of the game from players like Rio and Hargreaves and Fletcher. It shows that the players are not only angry, they are all fired up..."
