Manchester United Knocks Out Chelsea Out Of FA Cup At Stamford Bridge


Manchester United manager, Ole Gunner has secured United’s first win at Stamford Bridge since 28 October 2012 when they beat the Blues 2-3.

Manchester United have got little joy from an away trip to Chelsea over the past decade. However, the Red Devils secured a memorable win at Stamford Bridge to seal a place in the FA Cup quarter finals.

They beat the Blues 2-0 with the goals coming from Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba in the first half. Manchester United took the early lead just past 30 minutes when Ander Herrera expertly headed Pogba’s cross past Kepa Arrizabalaga in the Chelsea goal.

Paul Pogba made it 2-0 just before half-time, heading home an inch-perfect Marcus Rashford cross after playing his England teammate down the right flank with a through ball that split open the Chelsea defence.

Chelsea were not able to recover despite a second half fight against a resilient Manchester United.

The hosts pushed in vain for a goal to jumpstart a comeback, but none came as chants rang down from the stands calling for Sarri’s tenure at Chelsea to come to an end.

Most Chelsea fans could be heard voicing their displeasure with manager Maurizio Sarri as the match headed to full-time.
