Chelsea 1-2 Manchester United: Marcus Rashford scores incredible free-kick winner

Chelsea FC v Manchester United - Carabao Cup Round of 16

Marcus Rashford stole the show as Manchester United beat Chelsa at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening.

United won't have been too happy to get Chelsea away in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.

The trophy is their best chance of silverware this season, after all - something shown in the strong lineup Ole Gunnar Solskjaer put out.

Marcus Rashford, Daniel James, Fred, Scott McTominay, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, and Victor Lindelof have all been regulars lately and all started at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea, on the other hand, also had several key players in the side, and decided to start Christian Pulisic after his hattrick at the weekend. 

The first-half, truth be told, wasn't a classic.

Just four shots were split evenly between the two sides, with only one hitting the target.

The one that did was all-important, however, as Rashford stepped up to the penalty spot to score the game's opener.

Marcos Alonso clumsily fouled James on 25 minutes, giving Rashford the chance to make amends for his two missed penalties at the weekend.

The England man saw Tim Krul save both attempts against Norwich, although United didn't pay the price and still ran out 3-1 winners.

Rashford scored from all of 35 yards

Michy Batshuayi responded after half-time, though, scoring a brilliant goal that saw him run with the ball from the halfway-line, holding off defenders, and drilling it low into the corner of the net from outside the box.

And yet it wasn't the goal of the game.

As Fred was fouled 35-yards from goal, Chelsea couldn't have been too worried as Rashford lined up a shot.

But they should have been as the 21-year-old found the top corner with a truly sensational free-kick.

It's difficult to imagine that you'll see a better free-kick all season - it was special.

So United move on into the fifth-round and it's thanks to brilliance from Rashford.
