But the star man of the match is Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba. He manned the midfield and distributed passes, displayed how brilliant when he is on the football field once again.

Chelsea FC attacker, Romelu Lukaku scored a brilliant goal from the edge of the goal post and one of his goals was disallowed due to Video Assistant Referee (VAR) intervention. But his performance was not that encouraging as he losses some balls that could have resulted in goals.
