Manchester United beat Chelsea this Thursday (4-1), with the help of a goal by Bruno Fernandes, in the overdue match of the 32nd round of the English Football League, and ensured their presence in the Champions League.
At the mythical Old Trafford Stadium, the “red devils” took the lead just after the sixth minute, thanks to a goal by Brazilian Casemiro, served by Eriksen, opening the way for Frenchman Anthony Martial to best match the pass of Sancho and extend the advantage already in the compensation period (45+5).
In the second half, Bruno Fernandes, in the 73rd minute, scored the third from the penalty mark, with the used substitute Rashford (79) closing the scoring for the hosts, with the Portuguese João Félix, launched on the field by Frank Lampard at 65 minutes, in exchange with the German Kai Havertz, scoring the goal of honor for the “blues”.
Chelsea’s starting line-up in Manchester is the London club’s youngest ever in a Premier League game and the third in the competition’s history with nine under the age of 24.
In the emblem of Manchester, Diogo Dalot saw the game from the bench for the third consecutive time.
With this triumph, United left Liverpool (fifth, 66 points) with no chance of still dreaming of qualifying for the Champions League, rising to third place, with 72, two more than Newcastle (fourth), which has also confirmed its presence in the 2023/24 edition of the Champions League.
Chelsea, on the other hand, without winning for three matches, are 12th, with 43.
