Manchester United may have just pulled off their biggest win of their season so far.

The Red Devils gave their second-place aspirations a well-timed boost against top-four rivals Chelsea, coming from behind to win 2-1 at Old Trafford.

Willian had given the visitors a deserved first-half lead, but Romelu Lukaku and substitute Jesse Lingard scored to give Jose Mourinho three points which will taste sweeter than any other this season.

It was a big day for Nemanja Matic, with the Serbian midfielder taking on his former club for the second time after his £40m summer move and he turned in a very composed display.

In the midfield engine room, Matic done a fantastic job screening the defence and freeing up Paul Pogba, who was handed a start in his favoured role on the left of a midfield three.

And, the Serb was involved in quite a peculiar incident late in the second period with former teammate Willian.

Mourinho passed Eric Baily a tactical note to hand to his midfield maestro when he came on as a substitute and the Brazilian literally chased Matic down to try and get a sneak peek.

The United man certainly didn't look too impressed...


Matic certainly had his serious face on.

The interaction between the two was picked up by football fans on Twitter. Here are a selection of tea best posts.


It was a pretty funny incident, however, it will never reach the levels of former Arsenal right-back Emmanuel Eboue trying to listen in on North Korea's tactics while playing for Ivory Coast.

It would take something extraordinary to top that.
