Man United Come From Behind To Get Win Against Chelsea

Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku celebrating

Manchester United moved back into second place in the Premier League as substitute Jesse Lingard gave them victory over top-four rivals Chelsea at Old Trafford.


Just four minutes into the game Chelsea went close to taking the lead at Old Trafford when Alvaro Morata ran on to Marcos Alonso‘s brilliant volleyed cross, but his shot hit the bar.


The Red Devils went a goal behind after Willian started and finished a flowing move to give the visitors the lead in the first half.


United pulled level before the break, with striker Romelu Lukaku getting in front of Alonso to score against his former club for the first time.


Lukaku then set up Lingard to head home with 15 minutes left, after which Chelsea’s Morata had a goal incorrectly disallowed for offside.


Defeat leaves the Blues in fifth place after Tottenham beat Crystal Palace 1-0 earlier on Sunday.


A run of just one win in their past four league matches, coupled with Spurs’ 10-game unbeaten streak, means they are out of the Champions League places with 10 games remaining.
