With a Cristiano Ronaldo left on the bench at kickoff, Manchester United took a point from the leader, Chelsea, on Sunday, during the shock of the 13th day of the Premier League (1-1).
While awaiting the appointment of German strategist Ralf Rangnick, the Manchester United interim Michael Carrick got a good point in the field of Chelsea (1-1), Sunday afternoon at Stamford Bridge. The Red Devils remain only 8th, 5 points from the top 4, and the Blues, if they are still leaders in the standings, are now under threat from City and Liverpool (one and two lengths respectively).
Thomas Tuchel’s men dominated the game but never hurt a David De Gea vigilant. The fault in particular with Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner drafts. Without Cristiano Ronaldo, left on the bench, MU had decided to stay together to go against but it is a big mistake of Jorginho which allowed Jadon Sancho to go to goal to beat Edouard Mendy at the start of the second half (50th).
Thiago Silva decisive
Chelsea kept pushing and a generous penalty kick helped the Blues a lot. Thiago Silva collapsed on a clearance from Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Jorginho, to catch up, transformed the penalty of the equalizer (67th). “CR7”, which had just been launched into the battle (64th), did not have the opportunity to win MU. No more than Romelu Lukaku, who made his return to competition by entering for the last 10 minutes (82nd).
