McTominay nets brace to lead Manchester United to 2-1 win over Chelsea


Manchester United’s Scott McTominay continued his rich vein of goalscoring form when he netted either side of halftime to lift his team to a well-deserved 2-1 Premier League victory over Chelsea at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

United dominated in a victory that relieved some pressure on beleaguered manager Erik ten Hag, whose team have been hounded by reports of unrest in the dressing room, and moved them into sixth in the table on 27 points — three shy of the top four — after 15 games. Chelsea are 10th on 19 points.

“The boys were so upset with how we done with that game, it wasn’t anywhere near good enough, and to come in tonight and win was a plus and something we can build on,” the midfielder told Amazon Prime.

United’s victory was their fourth in their last five league games.

“After the last game at Newcastle, it was not good,” midfielder Sofyan Amrabat said. “We wanted to react today to show the fans our energy and that we wanted to win.”
