Video Man Utd 2-1 Chelsea
Man Utd needs victory to end the bad time. Therefore, they proactively pushed their team up very high to pressure Chelsea’s field.
In the 9th minute, United had a good opportunity to score, but Bruno Fernandes unfortunately missed on the penalty spot. Before that, Enzo Fernandez fouled Antony in the penalty area.
However, Man Utd does not have to regret for too long. In the 19th minute, after Maguire shot the ball but was blocked, the ball bounced to McTominay. The Scottish player handled it calmly and scored a shot into Chelsea’s net.
Receiving a goal, Chelsea tried to press forward to find an equalizer. After creating many opportunities, they finally had joy late in the 45th minute. Palmer put his name on the electronic board with an extremely dangerous cross-angle shot.
Entering the second half, United continued to maintain its offensive efforts. A series of opportunities were created by the Old Trafford team’s attacking stars, but they still needed the brilliance of defensive midfielder McTominay. In the 69th minute, McTominay escaped very quickly to catch Garnacho’s cross, then headed the ball into Chelsea’s net.
In the second half, Chelsea played much worse than in the first half. Therefore, the number of opportunities they created also decreased significantly. Man Utd players played with determination to not let the opponent concede a second goal.
If we were more careful, United would even score 2 more goals against Chelsea. But anyway, 3 points still belong to coach Ten Hag’s team in this match with a final victory of 2-1.

After a series of 3 consecutive wins in the Premier League, MU once again showed instability when losing 0-1 to Newcastle in the last match. If considered in all competitions, coach Erik ten Hag’s team has only won 2/5 recent matches. This is a consequence of the Red Devils’ defense being quite careless, while the strikers did not show the necessary sharpness.
Unlike MU, who just had a stumble in the Premier League, Chelsea just ended a 2-match winless streak in this tournament by overcoming Brighton with a score of 3-2. Although they only won narrowly, the important thing is that Chelsea showed their ability to overcome difficulties. The reason is because Brighton is ranked better than Chelsea (8 compared to 10), while in the last match the home team at Stamford Bridge had to play without players throughout the second half because Gallagher was sent off at the end of the first half.
With what they have just done, Chelsea has nothing to fear from MU even though they have to be a guest at Old Trafford. It is true that Chelsea lost miserably 1-4 the last time they visited the Red Devils’ lair, but in fact they are not inferior to their opponents in terms of head-to-head performance in the past few years.
