Chelsea drop points against Manchester United

The Blues started the first half against the Red Devils on the wrong foot. They struggled to create chances or prevent their visitors from entering threatening areas.

It was a rather troubling 45 minutes for Graham Potter’s side, who seemed unable to withstand the attacking barrage of charges from Erik ten Hag. However, Manchester United lacked the clinical prowess required to open the scoring.

A number of chances went to the visitors in the first half as they regularly threatened Kepa Arrizabalaga but he was able to hold his own. Barring a remarkable shot from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang that narrowly went wide of the post, Chelsea struggled to find big chances against Manchester United.

The Blues sat out in the second half, Chalobah notably hitting the post with a strong header towards goal.

Late in the game, an error by Scott McTominay gave the hosts the chance to convert a penalty. The midfielder held his arms around Armando Broja as he stood in the box, and the referee wasted no time pointing out the spot.

Jorginho converted the kick to the delight of Stamford Bridge. The Italian international placed his effort calmly, while sending David de Gea in the other direction.

However, that lead, which came in the 84th minute, did not last as Manchester United’s Casemiro was on hand to perform a miracle in injury time. The defensive midfielder came forward for a cross from Luke Shaw and headed it towards the goal. Although Kepa’s hand touched the ball, it wasn’t enough to parry it away from goal.

Although they will regret the draw, Chelsea will be delighted that their current run of eight games unbeaten under Graham Potter will continue.

The Blues also sit fourth in the Premier League table, just one point above the Red Devils.
