Manchester United held Chelsea to a point at Old Trafford in another uninspiring performance from the hosts, with Cristiano Ronaldo rescuing his team from a defeat yet again. Despite taking a point from the game, Ralf Rangnick’s side had far less possession than Chelsea with just 35% of the ball, fewer shots on targets and less than half the amount of accurate passes in a submissive display.
Although Manchester United got themselves back into the game they were unable to impose themselves creatively or effectively to steal all three points, with Marcus Rashford yet again putting on an anonymous performance that was part of setting the dull tone of the game. The 24-year-old was given the chance to show his new manager Erik ten Hag that he has what it takes to start in this team next season following Jadon Sancho’s absence through illness and to say he squandered his opportunity to prove himself as an attacking threat is an understatement.
He has strongly been linked with a move away from Old Trafford and reports have suggested that both Barcelona and Arsenal are interested in snapping him up and possibly reviving his fading career this summer.
