TheSportsRush brings Chelsea vs Manchester United highlights as an entertaining clash between the two sides ends in a 2-2 draw.
A last-minute equalizer from Ross Barkley, followed by ugly scenes on the touchline, was how the game between Chelsea and Manchester United ended.
Rudiger gave Chelsea an early lead in the match when Paul Pogba failed to mark him. However, Pogba performed impressively in the second half and was key to the first goal as Manchester United began their comeback.
Anthony Martial scored both the goals as United were cruising towards a historic win. This would’ve been Manchester United’s first victory at Chelsea since 2012, when Sir Alex Ferguson defeated a 9-men Chelsea.
As it turned out, Manchester United were punished for their overtly defensive approach in the final minute of extra time, as Ross Barkley scraped an equalizer.
Chelsea are still undefeated in the league, while this was Manchester United’s first point from Stamford Bridge under Jose Mourinho.
Here are some of the tweets from the match:
Chelsea coach won’t get anything for swinging a slap in front of Jose Mourinho, Mourinho gets banned for cursing.

Wait for it. Jose Mourinho holding up three fingers (to signify 3 titles at #CFC) to the Chelsea fans after the game, moments after a huge melee and Manchester United let in a 95th minute equalizer.

Run up celebrate in Mourinho’s face and then goes running down the tunnel when he confronts him. Pussy #MUFC

On the upside, at least we’ll never sing chants telling our most successful ever manager to fuck off. State of that club and those fans.

At 30 mins I’d have taken that result. But the way it worked out feels like a loss. Silly defending yet again costing us points.

Plenty of positives to take from that second half performance. Gutted we couldn’t see it through but the lads showed immense spirit and proved they’re still playing for the manager. Well played United. #mufc

Chelsea fans singing “Fuck off Mourinho” are embarrassing. The man is our greatest manager. The club would not be where it is today without him. Show him some respect.

Amount of disrespect Mourinho gets form Chelsea fans is unreal, man made their club and Russian money relevent.

Reverse the situation and see paper columns dedicated to Jose Mourinho behaviour and slander. And how United are letting go off United traditions
