Draw between Chelsea and Manchester United in a meeting that panicked at the very end.

We had to wait until the very end of the match to see goals in this clash between two historic English players. By a penalty converted in the 87th, Jorginho believed gave the victory to his people. It was without counting on the equalizer of Casemiro in additional time (90 + 4). After a dull and lackluster match, the two teams left in a logical draw.

A «  shock which was not one. In the first period, the Red Devils were in line with their great victory against Tottenham in the last match (2-0). They are the most dangerous, having had the two biggest chances (28th, 45th). If the men of Ten Hag projected quickly forward and tried to bring some control, clear situations were quite rare.

But what about Chelsea? The Blues weren’t in their game at all. Too much technical waste, no second hand. So much so that Graham Potter made a change in the 35th minute to readjust his midfield. A change that was good for the Blues in the last ten minutes.

Upon returning from the locker room, the locals suggested that things were better for a few minutes. Minutes of short duration. The pace was similar to the first half with a lot of waste on both sides. Raphaël Varane was injured on the hour mark. Terrible images, one month to the day before the start of the competition for the France team. Even though the defender walked out, he was in tears, visibly insecure.

The match was decided in the final ten minutes, after Chelsea were awarded a penalty thanks to an unnecessary foul by McTominay on Broja in the box. Jorginho converts without shaking (87th, 1-0). The locals thought they would take the three points, but it was without counting on Casemiro’s head full of rage, validated by the referee’s watch (94th, 1-1). Finally, the two teams left in a fairly logical draw, even if Manchester United had a better match.
