Scott McTominay scored twice in the Man United vs Chelsea match to secure a big win for Erik ten Hag’s squad at Old Trafford.

The midfielder’s fourth and fifth goals of the EPL season sent Manchester United three points behind fourth-place Man City.

Meanwhile, Chelsea stayed 10th with 19 points, two points behind ninth-place West Ham, but the Hammers have one match in the bag.

Manchester United got a big chance to score early as Antony got tackled in Chelsea’s penalty box.

After a VAR review, the referee gave a penalty to the home side in the 9th minute of the match.

Unfortunately, Bruno Fernandes’ penalty was too predictable for Chelsea goalie Robert Sanchez.

The Red Devils finally got the first goal in the 19thminute after McTominay snapped a low shot home.

Just before the first-half break, Cole Palmer nestled the ball inside the far post as Andre Onana couldn’t reach the ball.

MU finally got the winning goal in the 70thminute. Alejandro Garnacho crossed the ball from the left side and McTominay put the ball home again.

The winning from the Man United vs Chelsea match showed how the team responded to last weekend’s defeat at Newcastle United.

Man United will face Bournemouth in the next match, while Chelsea will visit Everton at Goodison Park.
