Tuchel: "In our performance we must stop Manchester United performing"

Chelsea remained atop the Premier League on Sunday by coming from behind to draw 1-1 with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.

Following Man City’s home victory over West Ham earlier in the day, Chelsea were ahead of the defending champions only on goal difference, but they edged a point ahead of City thanks to Jorginho’s equaliser from the penalty spot here. After a goalless first half, Jadon Sancho had given United the lead with his first Premier League goal, calmly slotting home after pouncing on an error by Jorginho. But the Italy midfielder made amends later in the second half, sending David de Gea the wrong way from the spot after Aaron Wan-Bissaka had fouled Thiago Silva in the box.

Cristiano Ronaldo, controversially dropped by caretaker United coach Michael Carrick, replaced a hobbling Sancho later in the game, but he could not provide the spark to make it back-to-back wins under his former teammate – with United waiting for Ralf Rangnick to arrive as their new interim manager. The Red Devils moved back up to eighth in the Premier League with the result, and they will look to push on once Rangnick takes his place in the Old Trafford dugout.

Follow all the fallout and post-match reaction from Chelsea vs Manchester United below:


Reaction from Thomas Tuchel

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel spoke to BBC Sport about his team’s draw with Manchester United and says he is happy with his players performance if not the result. He said:

It can happen in football, unfortunately it happened twice to us, it also happened against Burnley.

“I am absolutely happy with the performance. We dominated from the first minute, we were aggressive and never stopped attacking. Unfortunately we scored two goals, one for each side.

“It was a big chance, if he [Antonio Rudiger] maybe hits the target it could have been a fantastic end to a fantastic performance but we have to swallow the result. We played very well and I am happy.

“We were very disciplined and sharp. I am happy with what I saw, it was a pleasure to coach on the sidelines. We can not guarantee results but if we play like this we can increase the chances for results.

“If he [Romelu Lukaku] is fully fit he is a starter for us but he is not at the moment. It was more than I actually wanted but we were so close to the opponent’s goal I thought maybe he could help with his presence.”

Reaction from David De Gea

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea spoke to Sky Sports after the match and says that this performance shows United are improving as a team. He said:

We already improved against Villareal, we won, qualified and now we played a very good team away from home. The effort of the team was very good. They had the best chances. For me it is not enough, a draw. We are in a tough moment. I am proud of the effort of the team.

“On the pitch, in the goal, I was feeling danger for nearly the whole game. We defended well, they missed big chances and the one they give us a chance we score. It is not enough to draw but at the moment it is a big point.

“The last games before we were conceding three or four goals. We are improving. This is just two games. At least now we are defending well. We are fighting for every ball. We are a team.”

Jorginho atones for error to secure Chelsea a point against Manchester United

Jorginho held his nerve from the penalty spot to atone for gift-wrapping Jadon Sancho a goal and grab Chelsea a 1-1 Premier League draw with Manchester United

Italy midfielder Jorginho failed to control Bruno Fernandes’ up-and-under clearance, paying the price as the last man after a corner.

Sancho cantered through and slotted past a stranded Edouard Mendy to score his second goal of the week and stun the previously-comfortable Blues.

Manchester United secure draw with Chelsea to earn a reprieve before their restart

A day of reprieves, as Manchester United now look to a proper restart.

That may mean Chelsea will see this 1-1 draw as a wasted opportunity against a team very much between managers, especially given the nature of Antonio Rudiger’s late miss. It even put the luckless Timo Werner’s chances into perspective, and that’s kind of the thing for Chelsea. It could have been much worse.

90+7 mins: Chance! Hude chance Mount knocks the ball down the right side and Pulisic collects it. He gets away from Ronaldo and chips a cross to the far post. Rudiger is free and he volleys a shot at goal but smokes the chance over the crossbar!
