Jorginho loses control of the ball to Sancho

It all started from a Chelsea corner, which was cleared away long by the United defenders and it reached Jorginho, the only man inside the Chelsea half while the others had marched forward to attack the set piece. The ball reached him, while Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford hared in on him to apply pressure on the Italian midfielder.

The move paid off, as Jorginho’s touch was too heavy and Sancho easily latched onto the ball to break in free on goal. Despite having Rashford as partner in attack, the youngster chose to take the shot first time and scored expertly to get his second consecutive goal in Manchester United colours.
