Didier Drogba heads in Chelsea's goal
Didier Drogba heads in Chelsea's goal

Robin van Persie's header rescued a late point for Manchester United after it looked like Didier Drogba had given Chelsea victory at Old Trafford.

The Dutchman scored in the dying seconds of this huge match-up which ended up all square, so how did the players rate?

In a goalless first half, United's David de Gea saved well from Drogba while Thibaut Courtois kept out a Van Persie effort as the two sides shared possession and half chances.

Then just eights minutes into the second half, 36-year-old Drogba leaped highest to head home a Cesc Fabregas corner at the near-post.

But, after Branoslav Ivanovic was sent off in injury time, Van Persie smashed home from the resulting free-kick to earn his side a draw.
