Manchester United has left expensive points in the championship battle. José Mourinho’s team lost 1-0 from Chelsea on Sunday and now has eight less points than Manchester City. Antonio Conte’s Chelsea is Manchester United approaching to one point and ranks fourth in the Premier League. Álvaro Morata became the match-winner on Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea – Manchester United 1-0Chelsea suffered in October 2012, in the last season of Sir Alex Ferguson as a manager, his last homeland defeat in the Premier League against Manchester United and did not have to capitulate again this time. As I said, the difference was made by Morata, who after 55 minutes became hard-hard at the point of César Azpilicueta. No player in the five major European leagues has made more headline goal points than the Spaniard since the start of last season: ten. Mourinho then brought Marouane Fellaini and Anthony Martial within the lines, but they too could not protect the visitors from a loss.
What is a header of Alvaro Morata?
The Mancunians didn’t come much further than the volleys of Ander Herrera and Marcus Rashford, while Chelsea remained the most dangerous and tried via Eden Hazard, among others. Chelsea’s lead was already on the way for Chelsea, because they had started the second half better and had already been dangerous through Morata and Hazard, while in the first half of the game they also had the best of the game. Both parties were given some possibilities and Phil Jones was still working the ball in his own goal, but the referee judged that hit because of a push error for Morata. The latter, however, made the difference for the Blues with his header ball in the second half.
Everton – Watford 3-2In the first 45 minutes there was no scoring, but in the second company there were plenty of goals at Goodison Park. Richarlison opened the score one minute in the second half by cashing in a razor sharp counter. Christian Kabasele seemed to head Watford after an hour of playing with the 0-2 to the profit, but after a misjudgement by goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis, who replaced Heurelho Gomes during the duel, Oumar Niasse was able to type in the connection hit and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who replaced the home team just after that, at a corner to the 2-2. Everton, where Davy Klaassen was once again excluded from the selection, received a penalty after ninety minutes, which was well shot by Leighton Baines. Tom Cleverley could hurt his old club Everton in injury time by also using a penalty kick, but the Englishman shot just next to the wrong side of the pole and so the points remained in Liverpool.
A justified victory for Chelsea?
