Man of the match: Reece James
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel: “It should have been more. There’s only one team who deserves to win and that’s us but we didn’t take it. It’s our responsibility to win a game like this when we dominate in all areas of the match. We were not clinical enough, lacked a bit of determination in the box to win this game. We worked so hard to get the lead and created so many chances and suddenly the opponent gets one free shot and scores.”
Man Utd boss Ralf Rangnick: “We were fortunate in the first half, needed some great saves from David and last ditch tackles. In the second half we we better, showed a good reaction to that goal with an amazing assist by Nemanja and great finish by Ronaldo. In the last 20 minutes it was an open game. They could have scored when James hit the post but we also had our moments. Overall we had to admit we were fortunate to get that point but the reaction in the second half was good.”
