Chelsea and Manchester United held a draw with a score of 1 – 1
As a guest at Stamford Bridge, interim coach Michael Carrick surprised many people when he kept Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench and used up to 3 central midfielders, Matic, Fred and McTominay.
Having the home field advantage and outstanding performance, it was not surprising when Chelsea attacked immediately after the opening whistle. In the first few minutes, Ziyech and Hudson-Odoi soon had a chance to open the scoring, but the Chelsea strikers missed it rather ungratefully.
Chelsea’s midfield dominated the first half, leaving the ball almost exclusively in Manchester United’s half. However, there were no goals scored in the first 45 minutes.
After the break, Chelsea continued to push the offensive line up, but Jorginho’s deplorable mistake cost the home team dearly.
In the 50th minute, Jorginho controlled the ball, creating conditions for Sancho to steal the ball from the field. The English midfielder sped up and shot a shot to beat goalkeeper Mendy, opening the score 1 – 0 for Manchester United.
Led by the goal, Chelsea rose to attack strongly, but the Red Devils’ defense played extremely firmly. In addition, Manchester United also proved dangerous with counterattacks thanks to the speed of Sancho and Rashford.
Ronaldo entered the field from the bench in the 65th minute with the hope of bringing a new breeze to the Red Devils attack. However, just four minutes later, Manchester United conceded a goal.
Chelsea were awarded a penalty after Wan-Bissaka fouled Thiago Silva in the box. On the 11m mark, Jorginho made no mistake with the familiar flailing jump to equalize for Chelsea in the 69th minute.
Excited after the goal, Chelsea increased the terrible pressure on goalkeeper De Gea’s goal.
However, Chelsea’s strikers had a rather ungrateful day. Notably, the expensive striker Lukaku on the day he met the old team did not leave much impression and was slow.
In the end, the match between Chelsea and Manchester United ended with a 1 – 1 draw.
This draw leaves Chelsea still at the top but only 1 point ahead of Manchester City. Meanwhile, Manchester United is still standing in 8th place, 12 points behind Chelsea.
