It's been over six years since Chelsea beat Manchester United in the league. And he won the match 4-3 for the 31st matchday of the Premier League in an improbable game with two reversals and two goals for the “Blues” in stoppage time.

Cole Palmer was the top star with a hat trick.

Palmer did well and made it 2-0 in the 19th minute. D'Sassi came close to making it 3-0 in the 25th minute and Chelsea looked to be in full control of the match when things turned upside down.

In the 34th minute, Karnasso received a “gift” from Kaisidos and made it 2-1 in a four-on-four with Petrovic. United made it 2-2 four minutes later when Dalot's cross and Bruno headed in at the far post. Chelsea came close to a third goal in the closing stages of the first half, but Gallagher's cross was blocked by the post.

United came out on top in the second half, with Bruno impressively clearing Oana Palmer's shot in the 55' and 58'. The absolute breakthrough came nine minutes later in a terrific counter-attack from the visitors. Rashford found Anthony with a diagonal, who sent an incredible cross out and Karnasso headed past Petrovic to make it 2-3.
