  • Manchester United win 2-0 at Chelsea amid VAR controvesy
Sharjah24 – Reuters: Headed goals from Anthony Martial and captain Harry Maguire earned Manchester United a hard-fought 2-0 win at toothless Chelsea on Monday amid more VAR controversy, putting them back in the hunt for a top-four Premier League finish.
The VAR system made the headlines once again after two Chelsea efforts were ruled out and England international Maguire escaped sanction for a kick out at Michy Batshuayi.

In a high tempo, if often scrappy, game Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's United side made the most of their chances while Chelsea, whose form at home has been suspect all season, squandered a string of opportunities.

Defeat left Chelsea fourth, a point clear of resurgent rivals Tottenham Hotspur led by their ex-coach Jose Mourinho. Chelsea host Spurs on Saturday. United, another of Mourinho's old clubs, rose to seventh, three points behind Chelsea.
