How Chelsea and Manchester United drew 1-1 in the Premier League after late goals from Jorginho and Casemiro

Chelsea and Manchester United battled to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League after Jorginho‘s penalty was canceled out by Casemiro‘s injury-time equaliser.

 

In what was an engaging but goalless match for most of the 90 minutes, substitutions were the story early on. United controlled the first half-hour until Graham Potter made a tactical change, replacing Marc Cucurella with Mateo Kovacic and creating a more level playing field.

 

Raphael Varane came off injured in the 60th minute and showed great distress in doing so, covering his face with his jersey and leading to questions around his fitness ahead of next month’s World Cup.

 

Jorginho broke the deadlock with his goal from the spot in the 87th minute after McTominay was penalised for manhandling Broja during a corner kick.

 

But United answered back in the 94th minute through Casemiro as his header bounced off the post and eluded Kepa, only just trickling over the line.

 

The result is the fifth straight draw between the clubs, and leaves United one point behind Chelsea for fourth place in the table.
