Who Was Man Of The Match? Jadon Sancho
Manchester United’s cautious approach won them a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge in what may be Michael Carrick’s final game in charge before Ralf Rangnick takes over.
Jadon Sancho grabbed his first Premier League goal and is our Man of the Match.
David de Gea saved a Callum Hudson-Odoi effort, and later in half, the goalkeeper tipped Antonio Rudiger’s long-range shot onto the crossbar.
United stunned Chelsea by taking the lead moments after half-time when Jadon Sancho took advantage of Jorginho’s error to run through unopposed on goal and finish for his first-ever Premier League goal.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka struck the back of Thiago Silva’s foot in the box, enabling the Italian to score from the spot to make it 1-1.
Chelsea pushed and puffed but couldn’t find a winner – Rudiger fired over the bar unmarked at the far post in the 97th minute – leaving Michael Carrick undefeated in what may be his final match in command, with interim manager Ralf Rangnick set to take over soon.
Man United are in eighth place, while Chelsea are still in the first place, a point clear of Man City.
