Alvaro Morata gives Chelsea deserved win over United
Alvaro Morata heads Chelsea to victory over Manchester United
Alvaro Morata scored the only goal of the match as Manchester United suffered 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge.
Conte side were the better team in the first half and opened the scoring in the second, as Morata was left wide open to power home a header.
Chelsea continued to rack up the shots but United had two chances from Rashford and Fellaini as they struggled to hit back late in the game.
United’s late push lacked conviction and didn’t result in an equaliser.
Asked if it was his most important goal for Chelsea, Alvaro Morata told Sky Sports: “For sure.
“It is important that we won. We had a very good chance today to come back to winning ways. We are happy now with the international break we can go with three points.”
