Chelsea 1 Man Utd 1 LIVE REACTION: Casemiro header in dying moments RESCUES Red Devils point after Jorginho penalty | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED scored late on to rescue a point at Stamford Bridge, with Casemiro equalising following Jorginho's opener.

The Blues were dominated in the early stages, losing the midfield battle before Graham Potter made an early tactical change to replace Marc Cucurella with Mateo Kovacic.

The second-half saw the hosts take control of the game, and unfortunately for Man United, Raphael Varane was forced off with an injury – in tears as he left the pitch.

Chelsea thought they had won the game when Jorginho put them ahead from the spot in the 87th minute after substitute Scott McTominay dragged Armando Broja down in the box.

However, summer signing Casemiro came to the rescue and netted a powerful header in fourth minute of added time to rescue a point despite Kepa Arrizabalaga getting a strong hand on the ball to delay it crossing the line.

    Sterling's barren run continues.

    Raheem Sterling is a sensational footballer, there is no denying that.

    But questions have to be asked about his record against Manchester United.

    Having played against them 24 times after tonight's game, the England international has NEVER scored against the Red Devils.

    For such a prolific Premier League goalscorer, this is a bizarre stat that Raheem will be hoping to put to bed in the return fixture.

    Varane potentially missing the World Cup.

    Raphael Varane hardly put a foot wrong in this game, until Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang went sprinting past him in the second half.

    As the French ace stuck out his leg to make the tackle, his knee jarred into the turf.

    Varane then face-planted as he collapsed in clear agony during the 1-1 draw in West London.

    And the former Real Madrid man was visibly distraught as he was treated by United medics – knowing the injury could rule him out of the World Cup.

    Death, taxes, and…

    A 1-1 draw between Chelsea and Manchester United.

    Well who saw that coming?

    Oh yeah… Everyone.

    The game was 0-0, and both teams were vying for the win when Scott McTominay gave away a penalty after pulling back Armando Broja in the box.

    Jorginho dispatched it with confidence, and it looked like Chelsea had it wrapped up.

    However, Casemiro and Manchester United had other ideas, as the Brazilian looped a header which just escaped the paws of Kepa Arrizabalaga, who was brilliant again.

    It was typical of this fixture to end this way, and the last three games between United and Chelsea have now ended 1-1.

    90+5. Chelsea 1-1 Manchester United.

    Casemiro directs a brilliant header towards goal, which initially looks like it is saved by Kepa, but the Spaniard just could not get enough on it and he can't grab it before it goes over the line.

    Fine, fine margins, but it is Casemiro to the rescue for United!

    90+4. Chelsea 1-1 Manchester United.

    Goal for Manchester United! It's Casemiro!

  • Lloyd Canfield

    90+2. Chelsea 1-0 Manchester United.

    Jorginho is booked for a classic professional foul on Elanga, who he was never going to catch in a race.

    90. Chelsea 1-0 Manchester United.

    There will be SIX minutes of added time…

    This game does have a habit of ending in a draw…

  • Lloyd Canfield

    89. Chelsea 1-0 Manchester United.

    United are really under the pressure here again.

    Shaw gets a yellow card for a trip on Azpilicueta before Pulisic does really well to keep a hold on the ball.

  • Lloyd Canfield

    87. Chelsea 1-0 Manchester United.

    Huge goal for Chelsea.

    Jorginho has to wait a long time to take that penalty, and dispatches it perfectly to the right hand side.

  • Lloyd Canfield

    86. Chelsea 1-0 Manchester United.

    All the pressure lies on Jorginho…


  • Lloyd Canfield

    84. Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United.

    Penalty for Chelsea!

    McTominay has his arms all over Broja from the corner, and the referee gives a penalty!

  • Lloyd Canfield

    84. Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United.

    Chukwuemeka bursts forward and finds a nice pass to fellow substitute Broja.

    The Albanian looks to take on Martinez, but 'The Butcher' does well to stop him, as he has for the entirety of this game.

    Christian Pulisic wins a corner for the Blues…

  • Lloyd Canfield

    82. Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United.

    Manchester United are now playing with three defensive midfielders, as Casemiro, Fred and McTominay are all on the pitch.

    This game so far will leave many Manchester United fans wishing they had one of the greatest players of all time, with a habit for grabbing game winning goals in their ranks…

    Oh wait…

  • Lloyd Canfield

    80. Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United.

    Changes for both sides here:

    Raheem Sterling is off for Armando Broja.

    Carney Chukwuemeka replaces Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

    Christian Eriksen is replaced by Scott McTominay.

    While Anthony Elanga comes on for Marcus Rashford.

  • Lloyd Canfield

    78. Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United.

    Fernandes has a go from distance, but Kepa makes the save and sees it out for a corner.

    The delivery is poor from Eriksen, and doesn't beat the first man.

    A couple of minutes later Fernandes has another go from distance, but this one is high and wide of the goal.

  • Lloyd Canfield

    75. Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United.

    Christian Pulisic comes on and replaced Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

    The American is certainly someone with the ability to light up any game, and has been brilliant off of the bench so far for Potter.

    Potter will be hoping he can work some magic here… (Ba dum tss).

  • Lloyd Canfield

    74. Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United.

    Chance! Chalobah hits the crossbar!

    Finally a good delivery from Chelsea, which is delivered to the back post, Chalobah meets it well, but he can only direct it onto the crossbar…

    So close.

  • Lloyd Canfield

    72. Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United.

    Sterling wins a corner for Chelsea, but nothing comes of it after a poor delivery from Mason Mount.

    Jorginho then wins a foul off of Fred, which leads to another Chelsea corner…

  • Lloyd Canfield

    70. Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United.

    Just 20 minutes left to go in this one, plus a few minutes of added time, which will be largely for the injury of Raphael Varane.

    Bruno wins a free kick from Azpilicueta, but it is taken quickly and wasted by Fred who attempts a back heel.

  • Lloyd Canfield

    69. Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United.

    United come forward with Eriksen, who was left on the pitch for moments like these, but his deft touch is cut out brilliantly by Trevoh Chalobah, who is really making a name for himself in this Chelsea side.

  • Lloyd Canfield

    68. Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United.

    Chilwell whips in the corner, but nothing comes of it.

    Mount gets beautifully away from Fred, as Chelsea are starting to get on top.

    But his pass is cut out as United continue to defend with excellence.

  • Lloyd Canfield

    66. Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United.

    Lisandro Martinez has been brilliant so far in the United defence, he wins a great challenge against Sterling by the touchline.

    Loftus-Cheek wins a corner off of Luke Shaw…

  • Lloyd Canfield

    64. Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United.

    Loftus-Cheek plays a lovely, albeit risky, pass back to Thiago Silva, which allows Chelsea to come forward, but their attack eventually breaks down once again.

    They press well to get the ball back, but seem to be missing that final ball at the moment.

  • Lloyd Canfield

    62. Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United.

    Sterling turns and drives with pace towards the United defence.

    He finds Aubameyang, but the striker can only win a throw in for his team.

    Erik Ten Hag is now consoling Varane as United come forwards.

    Fred has a go from distance, but his effort is wide.
