Tonight’s big clash between Manchester United and Chelsea in the Premier League did not turn out as many expected. Man United succeeded in holding the Blues to a 1-1 draw to secure a key point that would improve their position in the Premier League. Currently, they are in 8th place in the table while Chelsea are still firmly at the top. However, things could have been a lot different if Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger hadn’t made a big mistake in the final minutes.
Chelsea had most of the chances in the first half but David De Gea solidly turned them down. Their lack of finish has made it difficult for Chelsea in a game as big as this and they have missed its presence at all times. Although Thomas Tuchel brought on Romelu Lukaku in the late game, it was too late. Manchester United had their best chance through an incredible Jorginho mistake and Jadon Sancho made no mistake in converting it, giving United a much-needed lead. Unfortunately, it was United’s best moment of the game.
Jorginho corrected his mistake by scoring Chelsea’s equalizer via a penalty afterwards. That seems to have engendered a whole new enthusiasm for Pensioners, who created plenty of opportunities back then but were sadly unable to convert any of them. Their greatest chance came seconds before the final whistle blew.

After winning the ball, Hakim Ziyech made a great pass to Mason Mount, who was running down the right flank. Just before touching the goal, the youngster crossed it inside the box. Lacking a host of players waiting in the box, Antonio Rudiger went unnoticed on the left flank with a shot straight on goal but the German shot wide over the bar. It could have been Chelsea’s opening goal.
