Summary of the game

The match had a few talking points in the first half as Chelsea failed to capitalize on United's defensive blunders.

The best of them was Callum Hudson-Odoi being left free as he was one-on-one with David de Gea but the Spanish goalkeeper made a vital save.

The second half was more of an open contest as the Red Devils got their noses in front following a huge error from Jorginho.

The Italian midfielder who was the last man in defence controlled the ball into Jadon Sancho's as the Englishman had to run 30-yards before applying the finish to make it 1-0.

Jorginho made amends for his error as he converted his spot-kick in the 69th minute to make it 1-1.

Antonio Rudiger had a glorious chance to seal the win in the 96th minute but he skyed his effort way above the post.

And that was how it ended with both sides going home with a point but Chelsea's lead on the league standings have been cut short to just a point.
