0 243

Manchester United and Chelsea played a pulsating 1-1 draw at Old Trafford to keep the top four fight going into the last lap of the English Premier League.

Juan Mata scored against his former club to put the Red Devils in front after 11 minutes from a low strike before a blunder by struggling Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea gifted an equaliser for Mairizio Sarri’s Chelsea scored by Marcos Alonso just before the half time.

An entertaining second half saw both the sides looking for a winner but they failed to break the tie to give Arsenal who were loudly defeated by Leicester a chance to be in the top four fight to qualify for the Champions League.

The results put Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in sixth place where they started the game, three points behind the visitors Chelsea in fourth position and one point behind archrivals Arsenal in fifth with only two games to go.
