Chelsea 3-3 Manchester United – Manchester United manage to come back from 3-0 down to secure a valuable point at Stamford Bridge.
In the first half, there was little action as Manchester United edged the play and had a few key decisions turned down. Daniel Sturridge created Chelsea’s first clear cut chance and his close ranged cross was deflected in my Evans as Chelsea took the lead.
In the second half, Chelsea came flying out the blocks, as Fernando Torres’ cross found Mata who smashed in a great volley just 25 seconds in. Chelsea went 3-0 up with a header from David Luiz as they were in dreamland. Manchester United were not out of it yet though, as they brought it back to 3-1 with Rooney scoring a penalty on the 57th minute. Another penalty was given, a soft one too, as Rooney once again scored from the spot, and there was over 20 minutes remaining. United were in the ascendency and dominated the game towards the end. Rooney missed a great chance, but from the save, Ryan Giggs picked the ball up, and crossed the ball for Hernandez to finish and make it 3-3, quite unbelievable. In the final moments, Mata’s great free kick was saved by De Gea, one of the saves of the season.
