A solitary goal from Alvaro Morata was enough to give Chelsea a 1-0 win over title rivals Manchester United in a highly entertaining match played at Stamford bridge on Sunday.
Morata managed to end his six game goal drought in all competitions after he superbly headed in a cross from fellow Spaniard, Cesar Azpilicueta’s in the 55th minute.
The striker’s goal ensured Chelsea bounced back fittingly from their mid-week champions league loss to Roma in in fitting fashion.
Jose Mourinho is suffering his second league defeat of the season as well as his second in his return to his former stomping ground.
Chelsea have now gone within a point of United and Tottenham who are third on the table.
