Liverpool legend Hansen: Man Utd exposed lack of quality in Chelsea defence

Liverpool icon Alan Hansen feels Manchester United exposed Chelsea's defence on Sunday.

In his column for the Telegraph, Hansen wrote: "Petr Cech remains a fine goalkeeper, but he is a diminished presence when faced with the high ball. John Terry, too, is an excellent defender, but while five years ago he could have played alongside anyone, now his companion must be an equal in the partnership.

"Thus far, none of Branislav Ivanovic, Alex or David Luiz look defensively secure enough to fulfil that role. Ashley Cole is world-class, but Jose Bosingwa, his counterpart at right-back, is much less consistent. "
