Manchester United goalkeeper
David De Gea produced another
blunder to gift Chelsea a 1-1 draw
in the battle between the two top
four hopefuls.
Ex-Chelsea man Juan Mata had
given the hosts an early lead at Old
Trafford, but Maurizio Sarri's men
were level just before half-time
when De Gea spilled Antonio
Rudiger's long-range effort into the
path of Marcos Alonso, who made
no mistake.
Defeats for Tottenham and Arsenal
this weekend meant the winner of
this clash had the chance to steal a
march on their rivals.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
named Ander Herrera in his starting
line-up, despite the Spanish
midfielder believed to be close to
joining Paris Saint-Germain in the
summer.
The hosts started the brighter and
took the lead after just 11 minutes.
Romelu Lukaku played in Luke
Shaw, who laid the ball back for
Mata to swivel and shoot past
goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.
United were on top and Lukaku
showed his determination as he
barged defender Cesar Azpilicueta
into the advertising hoardings, but
they failed to add to their lead and
were pegged back on 43 minutes
following another De Gea howler.
The Spain No. 1 has been at fault
for goals against Arsenal, Barcelona
and Manchester City in recent
weeks.
Buoyed by that equalising goal,
Chelsea were much brighter after
the break, but failed to test De
Gea's frail confidence further.
Both sides lost central defenders to
worrying-looking knee injuries in
the second period with Chelsea
seeing Rudiger hobble off on 65
minutes and United's Eric Bailly
following him down the tunnel six
minutes later.
The result means Chelsea stay
fourth but move two points clear of
fifth-place Arsenal, with United a
point further back in sixth.
