Chelsea held by Manchester United
Chelsea and Manchester United played out a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.
Chelsea headed into the meeting with Manchester United in much better form than their opponents on the day.
However, when all was said and done in west London, the points were shared.
Jadon Sancho, thanks to an error from Jorginho and some smart pressing from Marcus Rashford and Sancho himself, was able to open the scoring shortly into the second 45.
Chelsea were then able to bring things back on level terms after Aaron Wan-Bissaka gave away a pretty silly penalty, which Jorginho scored:
