‘He didn’t join for money’: Manchester United fans salute savior Casemiro as Chelsea drop points at Stamford Bridge.
In the biggest game of the weekend, Chelsea and Manchester United provided a cautious first half with no goals scored.
In the 87th minute, Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay retired an opponent in the area.
Jorginho stepped forward to convert the penalty and put Chelsea ahead. Graham Potter’s side were close to the finish line, but Casemiro would get up to head in a Luke Shaw cross deep in added time to stun Stamford Bridge.
It turned out to be the last action of the match, as Chelsea were denied maximum points by Manchester United in the death.
