  • Rangnick rubbishes rumors of Austrian job

    Before the game, news surfaced that Rangnik seemed to be the favorite to take the job of the Austrian national team, although previously attached to a variety of roles at the club.

    In his post-match conference call, he dismissed these rumours:

    Tonight we talk about Manchester United being here for the rest of the season, and I can also confirm that I will certainly continue my advisory role. We have agreed on the content and timing of our role. I haven’t spoken to Eric yet. But I am ready to help change things for the better.

  • Tuchel calls Havertz and Werner

    The Chelsea boss looked bewildered at some points this evening. Reprimand your players for every chance they miss.

    He was a little more relaxed in his post-match interview.

    One team deserved to win, and that is us, but we didn’t take it. It’s our responsibility to win a game where we dominate in all the important areas… We weren’t decisive, not clinical enough… Reese was a little unlucky in his decisions. He could have been more precise to score and assist… Havertz and Werner didn’t reach their peak performance today, and if they did we would have been winners, but no need to point fingers.

    Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea Boss

  • Roy Keane Responds

    Roy did not agree with Matic’s comments, suggesting that Chelsea were far better than their beloved United.

    Chelsea should have won the match. United responded well after going back. We have been criticizing him and he showed a little pride, but still not enough. Chelsea were by far the better team… If Chelsea had been clinical and took their chances, they would have won the game comfortably.

    Roy Keane, Pandit

  • “A Fair Result” – Nemanja Matic

    The Serbian midfielder at Manchester United spoke on the result:

    It was an improvement. We played against a very good team that was almost perfect tactically. They have great players and great managers. We played a good game, it was a level game and a good 1-1 result. Tonight we looked a lot better than we did in the past few weeks.

  • Full-time – Manchester United 1-1 Chelsea

    it’s all over!

    Points are shared in Manchester.

    United developed the game in the second half and it was their No. 7 that came in the defensive moments when Alonso put Chelsea in front.

    Tuchel will feel disappointed. The Hs side should have finished the game in the first 45 minutes.
