Title Race Wide Open in Premier League After Man United Beat Chelsea
The race for Premier League title this season apparently still far from over, notably after Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat against Manchester United on Sunday.
Current league leader, The Blues were keen on regaining their seven points gap wit second place, Tottenham Hotspur, but Antonio Conte’s men were facing a tough time indeed.
Despite having just played in Europa League during midweek, Man United looked determined and fresh as they go up at their opponent straight from kick off.
Jose Mourinho’s men got themselves in front after just seven minutes of play thanks to their young striker, Marcus Rashford’s effort.
That slender lead lasted until half time break and similar situation occurring after the break as United immediately got their second, this time through Ander Herrera.
Trailing two goals seemingly too much for Chelsea in that game as they couldn’t break down their opponent’s defense and were forced to admit defeat at Old Trafford.
That result means that Conte’s men are only four points ahead of an inform Tottenham side, which could create a tricky last few games in Premier League.
Meanwhile, Liverpool also picked up an important result as they beat West Bromwich Albion 1-0 with a goal from Roberto Firmino just before half time break.
The result temporarily puts them back on third place, but they do have one more game more than fourth place seat Manchester City and two games ahead of Man United on fifth place.
