Chelsea and Manchester United shared a point in the highly-anticipated Premier League match which was played at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening. The giant clubs were entertaining in the match and the fans from both ends enjoyed the match.
The first half ended in a goalless draw despite Chelsea creating the most chances. However, Manchester United opened the scoring five minutes into the second half through a brilliant counterattack from Jadon Sancho who scored his first Premier League goal.
Antonio Rudiger gave away the ball which resulted in the first goal from the Red Devils. Chelsea leveled the scores 19 minutes later through a penalty spot when after a foul by Wan-bissaka. The two sides were exciting to watch but two Manchester United stars were not seen in the match despite their brilliant performance this season.
Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford have not seen the match and they struggled to make a huge contribution or impact in the match but Chelsea's top center-back Thiago Silva was decisive at the back. Despite being 37 years old the former Paris Saint-Germain man was amazing against the Red Devils.
Thiago Silva was terrific at Stamford Bridge and he ensured Manchester United had only two shots on target in the entire compared to the hosts who had six shots on goal. Silva has been incredible for the Blues since he arrived from Paris Saint-Germain last summer and he has been a remarkable center-back just like Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk.
