London, England, United Kingdom (4E Sports) – Samuel Eto’o scored all of Chelsea’s goals in a 3-1 win over Manchester United Sunday at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea went ahead when Eto’o's shot looped up off Michael Carrick’s outstretched leg and into the top corner.
Gary Cahill, who was on the right side, centred through a static defence for Eto’o to sweep in for a 2-0 lead.
The third Chelsea goal came after Cahill was allowed a free header from the corner, and David De Gea saved on the line only for Eto’o to poke in the rebound.
United then threw on Javier Hernandez who netted a goal 12 minutes later.
Seventh-placed United sit six points behind fourth-placed Liverpool and fifth-placed Tottenham with 16 games remaining after seeing their seven-match unbeaten away run end.
The goals were Eto’s's fourth, fifth and sixth in the Premier League this season.

The Cameroonian striker has now proved to be the difference for his club in vital wins over Liverpool and United within the past month.
