Premier League: Manchester United beat Huddersfield; Chelsea defeat Watford

12

Paul Pogba rediscovered his goal-scoring form as caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claimed his first win at home and second in as many matches, beating Huddersfield 3-1 on Wednesday.

Solsjaer was handed the responsibility of the club only last week after the dismissal of Jose Mourinho. The Norwegian who is a former striker at the club began things on a high with a 5-1 thrashing of Cardiff.

The opening goal was scored by Nemanja Matic from close-range after a header by Viktor Lindelof was saved by Jonas Lossl.

Pogba, who spent a lot of time on the bench in recent times under Mourinho, netted a sensational brace in the second half to cap-off the dominating win under Solksjaer who has brought about a change of mood at Old Trafford.

Chelsea beat Watford

Eden Hazard netted a brace as Chelsea returned to winning ways after edging past Watford 2-1.

The Belgian winger scored the opening goal for his side after receiving a pass from Mateo Kovacic. This was his 100th goal in a Chelsea shirt.

However, that lead lasted only for two minutes after Roberto Pereyra equalised for Watford from 18-yards with a volley past Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Goalkeeper Ben Foster took down Hazard in the second half for a penalty to be awarded to Maurizio Sarri’s side and Hazard made no mistake in slotting it into the back of the net who walk away with three points.
