Jorginho redeemed himself with a penalty to get a 1-1 draw against Manchester United



Jorginho-Chelsea vs Manchester United

Stamford Bridge witnessed a 1-1 draw between Premier League leaders Chelsea and Manchester United.

As a result of Jorginho’s miscontrolled long pass, it didn’t take long before Jadon Sancho netted his second goal of the season, which the Italian soon redeemed himself with a penalty.

David de Gea made a great play in the 67th minute to deny Callum Hudson-Odoi from close range after some poor defending by Victor Lindelof just three minutes in.

In a three-man attack with Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho, Bruno Fernandes faced off against Cristiano Ronaldo, but all three see little ball time in the opening stages.

Despite having Marcus Rashford alongside him, Sancho chose to shoot himself to score his second goal in as many games as he raced towards Mendy’s goal, despite having Marcus Rashford alongside him in support.

Just under half an hour before the end, Ronaldo came on in place of the former Borussia Dortmund winger.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s clumsy kick of Thiago Silva’s leg when clearing the ball in the box led to Jorginho converting from the penalty spot after his earlier mistake.

A goal-bound effort from Timo Werner looked set to be decisive as Chelsea pressed for a win in the dying stages until Wan-Bissaka stopped it with his foot to spare the German.

Although Rudiger missed a late effort from close range, Thomas Tuchel’s side remain a point ahead of Manchester City.
