Premier League table: Manchester United fight back to beat Chelsea and go second

Posted on Feb 25 2018 - 5:55pm by admin

Romelu Lukaku scored one goal and laid on an assist, as Manchester United came from behind to defeat Chelsea 2-1 at Old Trafford on Sunday.

United came into the match following a drab goalless draw away to Sevilla in the Champions League round of 16 in midweek and needing to go back to second position after Liverpool’s victory yesterday.

But it was the visitors who took the lead. Willian exchanged passes with Eden Hazard, before crashing the ball past David De Gea.

Lukaku equalized before the interval, finishing off a fine move that involved Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial.

The Belgium striker, who has been criticized roundly for not having an impact in big games, then crossed for substitute Jesse Lingard to head in the winner.
