Result: Manchester United 1-1 Chelsea

Date: 28 April 2022

Venue: Old Trafford

The Red Devils were without the services of Jadon Sancho and Harry Maguire through injury, as Marcus Rashford was called up on to join the attack on the night.

The game's first opening fell to the home side after nine minutes when Alex Telles sent a cross into the box that found Bruno Fernandes, who saw his header saved by Edouard Mendy.

Chelsea should have been ahead when N'Golo Kante slipped Kai Havertz through on goal on 28 minutes, however the German forward failed to beat David de Gea in a one-on-one situation.

The Blues had a lot of joy down the right flank and Reece James took full advantage when was given time and space to pick out Havertz, who failed to steer his header past De Gea on 37 minutes.

It was more of the same in the second half but Chelsea had to wait until the hour mark for the breakthrough when Havertz flicked James' cross into the path of Marcos Alonso, who sent a first-time volley past De Gea.

However, United weren't behind for too long as Ronaldo pulled his side level two minutes later with a powerful volley of his own after being played in by Nemanja Matic.

With 20 minutes to go in the half, Thomas Tuchel went to his bench introduced former United striker Romelu Lukaku and Christian Pulisic, with Timo Werner and Havertz making way.

Ralf Rangnick threw on Juan Mata and Phil Jones in the latter stages of the second half, but they were unable to carve out another opening as the encounter finished 1-1 at Old Trafford.

Here are 12 United players who could reportedly leave the club at the end of the season:
