Palmer’s Hat-trick Earns Chelsea First EPL Win Over Man United In Seven Years

A Cole Palmer double in stoppage time gave Chelsea a 4-3 win over Manchester United in a dramatic Premier League tie at Stamford Bridge on Thursday.

Chelsea have now won a Premier League game against United for the first time since November 2017.

It was a game that saw Alejandro Garnacho score two of United’s three goals.

Garnacho has scored three braces in the Premier League for United this season.

He becomes the first teenager to score 2+ goals in three Premier League games in a season since Michael Owen in 1998-99.

Chelsea took a 2-0 lead within 20 minutes thanks to a Conor Gallagher opener (4th min) and a Palmer penalty (19th min).

In the 34th minute Garnacho pulled a goal back for United before Bruno Fernandes made it 2-2 on 39 minutes.

Garnacho got his second of the game to put the Red Devils 3-2 up on 67 minutes.

In the 10th minute of added time Palmer scored from the penalty spot to make it 3-3.

Then just one minute later he completed his hat-trick and also netted Chelsea’s fourth.

The defeat is a setback to United’s top four ambitions as they are in sixth on 48 points, 11 points behind fourth placed Aston Villa.

Chelsea move up to 10th position on 43 points in the league table.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have moved back to first place after defeating bottom side Sheffield United 3-1 at Anfield.
