Victories for Manchester United and Chelsea in the English Premier League

LONDON (AP) Kai Havertz has given Chelsea the perfect start after a long World Cup break in the Premier League. The German footballer scored in a 2-0 (2-0) home win against Bournemouth on Tuesday to take a 1-0 lead (16th minute), and also set up Mason Mount’s second goal (24th).

With their seventh win of the season, the Blues cut the gap to the Champions League places to six points. Compared to the last league match before the World Cup in Qatar, Chelsea manager Graham Potter made eight changes to the starting line-up. For example, former Gladbach pro Dennis Zakaria was allowed to play in defensive midfield from the start.

Reece James’ knee injury was in the second half. The England international had just returned from a knee injury that meant he missed the World Cup in Qatar. “It’s the same place,” Potter said, “so we’re worried. We have to hope it’s not that bad this time.”

Late on Tuesday evening, Manchester United confidently beat the volleyball-promoting Nottingham Forest 3-0 (2-0) in the first league match after separating from Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo. Marcus Rashford passed the goal to 1: 0 (19) and assisted Anthony Martial (22) with a score of 2: 0. Fred got the final score (87). Man United is one point behind in the Champions League.
