The Red Devils had a slow start to the game, and fell behind in the first half due to some poor marking from Paul Pogba. Then came the second half, which saw the momentum shift, as the visitors managed to threaten Chelsea regularly.
Anthony Martial found the equalizer as he latched onto a deflected shot, and in the 73rd minute, Mata and Rashford caught the Blues on the counter-attack, allowing the Frenchman to run free into the defence.
Kepa had no answer to Martial’s brilliant curler which found the bottom corner, giving Manchester United a 2-1 lead. But they were unable to hold onto the three points, as Ross Barkley scored in the last minute of added time to share the spoils.
