Manchester United secures a 2-1 victory as Chelsea faces defeat in Manchester

Date:

Scott McTominay netted twice, securing a 2-1 victory for Manchester United over Chelsea on Wednesday.

This win alleviated pressure on manager Erik ten Hag and intensified scrutiny on Mauricio Pochettino.

Following a lackluster performance against Newcastle, United showcased arguably their best form this season, rising to sixth place in the league, just three points behind fourth-placed Manchester City.

Despite Chelsea’s substantial investment in new players, they find themselves in 10th place.

Pochettino’s arrival, initially seen as a catalyst for improvement, has yielded only five wins in his first 15 league games.

Ten Hag’s strategic decision, including benching Marcus Rashford, paid off with a more energetic display.

Chelsea’s goalkeeper, Robert Sanchez, played a crucial role in keeping the score level at halftime, facing 18 shots from United.

A VAR-awarded penalty did not capitalize for United, as Sanchez saved Bruno Fernandes’ spot-kick, and Alejandro Garnacho missed the rebound.

McTominay broke the deadlock, scoring his fifth goal of the season.

Chelsea equalized before halftime with a goal from Cole Palmer. Despite missed opportunities, McTominay secured the win with a header from Garnacho’s cross.

United’s profligacy allowed Chelsea a late chance, hitting the crossbar, but Pochettino struggles to harness Chelsea’s young talent into a cohesive unit.
