Result: Chelsea 1-1 Manchester United

Date: 28 November 2021

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Michael Carrick took the surprise decision to drop Ronaldo as Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes returned to the starting line-up, while Romelu Lukaku returned to the matchday squad for the Blues.

Callum Hudson-Odoi should have given Chelsea the lead inside the opening five minutes after slipping through the United defence, however the winger was unable to find a way past David de Gea.

United, meanwhile, were quite happy to sit back and soak up three pressure with but they were unable to launch any counter-attacks with the pace of Rashford and Jadon Sancho.

The Blues nearly got their reward on 30 minutes when Antonio Rudiger rattled the crossbar with a powerful effort from distance that left De Gea with no chance.

However, that all changed four minutes into the second half when a poor touch from Jorginho allowed Sancho to go clear and goal and slot past Edouard Mendy for his league goal.

That was Sancho's last major involvement in the encounter as was taken off just after the hour mark, as Ronaldo made his way onto the pitch looking for his first league goal against the Blues.

Soon after, Chelsea were awarded a penalty on 67 minutes when Aaron Wan-Bissaka caught the heel of Thiago Silva in the box. Jorginho stepped up and calmly slotted into the bottom corner to level matters.

Both sides made changes for the final 15 minutes as Carrick withdrew Rashford for Jesse Lingard, while Chelsea introduced Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount.

Rudiger had a chance to win the clash with the final kick of the game, but the Blues defender - unmarked - volleyed well over the crossbar with only De Gea to beat as the encounter finished all square.
