An awesome tactical match for the Red Devils, Manchester United, and a very poor tactical match for the Blues, Chelsea FC, and Mauricio Sarri.
Manchester United have scored two goals in the first half by Ander Herrera where Paul Pogba assisted, and the second goal was by Paul Pogba, where Marcus Rashford assisted.
Manchester United started the match well, then after 20 minutes, Chelsea started to attack. However, Chelsea couldn’t break into Manchester United’s defense.
This win is revenge for Manchester United after losing 1-0 in the FA Cup final last season against the Blues Chelsea FC, where the Red Devils will be playing the semi-final.

Rudiger: Another very poor match. 5/10
Luiz: As well, a poor performance. 5/10
