Marcus Rashford scored Manchester United’s winner against Chelsea with a free-kick.

Chelsea defender Reece James has revealed he thought Rashford’s free-kick will go miles over the bar.

James told Chelsea TV: “I was in the wall. To be fair, when he first hit it I thought it was going miles over the bar! But then it did drop down and ended in the top corner.”

He added: “I thought we were the better team. We were a goal behind, eventually, Michy Batshuayi got us back into the game – the crowd helped us and the game went on. The second goal is what got us, it was a big blow.”
