Cape Town - Manchester United captain Harry Maguire accurately predicted he would score in a 2-0 away win at Chelsea as revealed in a message sent to his brother, Laurence.

The England international scored United's second goal in the 66th minute with a powerful header from an in-swinging Bruno Fernades corner to double the away side's lead.

It was Maguire's first Premier League goal for the Red Devils since his record-breaking £80 million transfer from Leicester City.

The player's brother, Laurence, has now revealed in a screenshot from an iMessage conversation between the two how the defender accurately predicted that he would score and how too.

The youngest of three brothers, Laurence plays for fifth-tier side Chesterfield with middle-child Joe playing for League One side Accrington Stanley.

With the win, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side moved within three points of Chelsea in fourth spot in the standings and the final Champions League spot in the race to finish within the top four.
