Chelsea entertained Manchester United at Stamford Bridge earlier tonight as they looked to grind out a win at home. The Blues struggled to create chances in the first half and were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time break.
Jorginho finally broke the deadlock from the penalty spot in the 87th minute. Casemiro scored an equaliser for Man United in injury time with a good header as the contest ended 1-1 with Graham Potter’s men being held to a draw in front of their home supporters.
Let’s take a look at how each Chelsea player performed during the match against the Red Devils.

The Spanish keeper made a lot of important saves at the back but will be disappointed after conceding such a late goal.

Chalobah gave a good account of himself at the back and was a threat going forward.
