Manchester United 1-1 Chelsea: David De Gea blunder gift blues a vital point at Old Trafford

United started well and took the lead on 11 minutes when as Juan Mata marked his 31st birthday with a goal against his former club.

But Chelsea were level by half time after an error from United goalkeeper David de Gea, who spilled a long-range shot from Antonio Rudiger into the path of Marcos Alonso, who gobbled up the rebound.

Both sides lost centre backs to injuries during the second half as Antonio Rudiger and Eric Bailly limped off.
