Chelsea remains unbeaten under Graham Potter in all competitions since his appointment in September.
Chelsea manager Graham Potter admits his side’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United at home was a fair result. Speaking to Sky Sports (h/t BBC) after the game, the manager had his say.
“A really fighting performance from us, we improved a lot after 30 minutes so we will take what we get. I thought the players’ attitude on the pitch was great, the boys gave everything in a hard, intense match in the middle of a really busy period. The boys left everything out there. I thought we could’ve attacked a bit better at times. We had chances, they had chances so a point is about right.”
Jorginho gave Chelsea the lead from the spot-kick in the 87th minute after Scott McTominay bought down Armando Broja in the box during the corner kick. The West London club thought they would walk out with all three points, but Casemiro spoiled the party with an injury-time strike.
The Brazilian equalised for the Red Devils during injury time. Kepa Arrizabalaga got his hand to the header, but could not keep it from crossing the line. The referee awarded the goal after looking at his watch for confirmation.
Erik ten Hag’s side enjoyed most of the possession and shots on goals. Chelsea lacked in the midfield as they failed to hold the ball for much longer in the middle of the park.
This result means that Chelsea remains unbeaten under Potter in all competitions since his appointment in September. Chelsea will now move their attention to the Champions League as they will travel to face RB Salzburg this Tuesday. A win there could seal our qualification to the next round.
