The fixture between Manchester United and Chelsea on Matchday 13 of the Premier League on Saturday was devoid of drama till the 83rd minute when a Chelsea corner led to a foul in the United box resulting in a penalty for the hosts. Jorginho, Chelsea’s specialist from the spot, made good use of the chance and converted the shot into a goal putting Chelsea ahead by one goal to none. 

The fate of the visitors seemed to have been sealed with the Italian’s goal and they looked set to lose all three points in the match. However, Eric Ten Hag’s men did not give up till the final minutes of the match when Casemiro converted a Luke Shaw cross by heading it into the goal in the 94th minute.

“I think it was well-deserved, but it was tough. When you get so short of time and one nil down, then it’s really difficult at the fourth game in 10 days to fight back. But the team found the energy and the strength and its a big, big compliment for the team,” Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag said in the post-match presser.

The foul that led to the penalty decision in favour of Chelsea came from United midfielder Scott McTominay. It became controversial, especially with the way McTominay held on to his man by putting his arms around quite explicitly. When asked about it, Ten Hag said:  “Oh I have to see it. I say that refs make the decision, e have to accept it and we carry on.” 

Talking about new signing Casemiro, Ten Hag said: “He is growing from game to game and now he made the equaliser gave the team and him even more confidence. You saw today how important he is. I think he was massive today. He is now matching the intensity of the Premier League from game to game. He will be better, I am confident of that.”
