Lukaku Shines As Man Utd Sink Rivals Chelsea

English Premier League Report: Manchester United v Chelsea 25 February 2018

By SL International - Feb 25, 2018 06:04 PM

English Premier League

Result: Manchester United 2-1 Chelsea

Date: 25 February 2018

Venue: Old Trafford

Romelu Lukaku bagged a goal and an assist against his former side as Manchester United came from behind to defeat Chelsea 2-1 at Old Trafford.

Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial returned to the United line up, while Alvaro Morata was handed a start by Antonio Conte for the visitors.

The Blues threatened to take the lead early on as Morata rattled the woodwork from point-blank range after just four minutes.

The home side had to wait until the 27th minute for their first opening as Martial played a pass into Alexis Sanchez, who controlled well but fired a tame effort at Thibaut Courtois.

Four minutes later, the Blues broke the deadlock as Hazard played a fine reverse pass for Willian, who rifled the ball past David De Gea at his near post.

United hit back in the 39th minute as an intricate passing move ended with Martial teeing up Lukaku, who slotted into the far corner.

The second half started in the same vein as the first, with the Blues seeing a lot of the ball in the opening 10 minutes.

With United struggling to in the final third, Jose Mourinho opted for a change on 63 minutes as Martial made way for Jesse Lingard.

The change paid off for United as, 11 minutes after his introduction, Lingard put United in the lead with a fine header into the bottom corner following a cross from Lukaku.

Antonio Conte responded by throwing on Olivier Giroud and Cesc Fabregas for the final 10 minutes.

However, the Red Devils managed to see out the closing stages to claim a valuable win that moves them back up to second spot.

Squad depth killed us..Honestly,Morata can't handle the physicality of the Premier League,Giroud would have been a better option..I'm still tryna figure out why on earth Conte took off Hazard who was a flipping threat to Man u??
