Manchester United drew 1-1 with Chelsea in the English Premier League meeting, which was held at Old Trafford on Thursday evening.
Cristiano Ronaldo had an early opportunity and it could have been one in the scrapbook. Nemanja Matic returned the ball to the area after a corner kick for Chelsea. He nodded to Ronaldo, who attempted the superb ball with an over-the-head kick and widened.
In response, Chelsea launched a violent breakup after Ronaldo fell in the penalty area to half-hearted pleas from United fans, not even appealing to the striker. Havertz entered from behind and entered the area before firing wide.
In the 60th minute, the visitors finally hijacked the opening match. The Blues fired the ball to James on the right wing with plenty of time for the right-back to catch a cross that Havertz sent to Alonso. The Spaniard hit the ball past De Gea to give Thomas Tuchel’s men the lead at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils immediately responded through Ronaldo. N’Golo Kante gave the ball away in the Chelsea half before Matic tried to play Ronaldo. Clear.
The results mean that Manchester United cannot finish above Chelsea in the Premier League.
If United win their last three games, they would equal the worst number of points ever for a Premier League season.
The Red Devils remain sixth in the record with 55 points, five points out of the top four.
