Chelsea FC 1-1 Manchester United LIVE! Premier League result, match stream, latest reaction and updates today – Evening Standard

asemiro’s stoppage-time header scrambled Manchester United a point in a 1-1 draw at Chelsea.
The Brazil midfielder levelled by the slimmest margin, with goal-line technology rightly awarding his effort at Stamford Bridge.
Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga clawed the ball onto a post before the ricochet crossed the line.
Jorginho’s late penalty looked to have given Chelsea all three points, only for Casemiro to pop up and equalise.
United extended their unbeaten run to six matches in all competitions, while Chelsea are yet to lose under new boss Graham Potter.
Former Brighton boss Potter’s unbeaten streak as Chelsea manager has now stretched to eight games.
Honours even in a cut-and-thrust encounter meant Chelsea stay fourth and United fifth in the Premier League table.
United boss Eric Ten Hag had hoped his hard-line approach on standing down Cristiano Ronaldo would galvanise his squad.
The Red Devils failed to fire despite dominating the first half, but were still able to claw a point at the death.
Raphael Varane was reduced to tears by a leg injury that will jeopardise his World Cup place. The France defender fell awkwardly in the second half and trudged off in extreme frustration.
The 29-year-old covered his face with his shirt, then punched the corner flag, as the reality sunk in on his injury.
The World Cup is now less than a month away, and no players in the mix for Qatar need any reminding.
Varane was inconsolable and is now a major doubt for the France squad.
Chelsea identified this fixture as one of their matches to support Stonewall’s anti-discrimination Rainbow Laces campaign, with a host of initiatives around the match.
United’s travelling fans twice launched into homophobic chanting in west London, in a dismal contrast to the home side’s efforts linked to the long-running No To Hate campaign.
United bossed the first half without finding a breakthrough, while Chelsea offered intermittent threat.
Arrizabalaga was left to breathe a sigh of relief after United wasted the corner that he had conceded cheaply due to a fumble under no pressure.
Luke Shaw drove just wide from 18 yards after striding into space, and Antony forced a good save from Kepa with a low, curling effort.
United’s midfield control forced Potter into an early rethink, with the Blues boss hooking Marc Cucurella just 35 minutes in.
Mateo Kovacic added bite to central midfield, immediately handing the hosts extra ballast.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang saw a low-power effort creep wide of a post as Chelsea fought for a foothold, then later failed to latch onto Raheem Sterling’s square ball in the area.
Varane’s injury dominated the opening part of the second half, after the teams had turned around without score.
Trevoh Chalobah thumped a far-post header against the crossbar from a corner as the Blues tried to crank up the pressure, and then Scott McTominay felled Armando Broja for the late penalty.
Jorginho delivered off the spot again, but Chelsea could not quite hold on as Casemiro popped up to claim United a share of the spoils.
Casemiro earned Manchester United a point with a stoppage-time equaliser as Chelsea were left stunned at Stamford Bridge.
It was far from a thrilling encounter in west London, though United had much the better of the first-half as Marcus Rashford and Antony failed to make the most of big chances.
With the match looking destined to finish goalless after a tight second period, Armando Broja was dragged down from a corner with five minutes remaining and the referee pointed the spot, with Jorginho typically composed in sending David de Gea the wrong way.
But in the fourth-minute of added-time, Casemiro’s header beat Kepa and just about crossed the line, as it finished all square at Stamford Bridge.
Buoyed by their midweek win over Tottenham, United made a confident start at Stamford Bridge and put Chelsea under real pressure. Kepa Arrizabalaga turned behind an effort from Antony before rushing off his line to deny Rashford, as the Blues struggled to get any sort of control.
So dominant were United that Graham Potter turned to his bench after just 36 minutes to make a tactical change, bringing off Marc Cucurella as Mateo Kovacic was introduced to bolster the midfield.
Chelsea certainly improved from that point but United should have taken the lead just before the break, as Bruno Fernandes put Antony clean through, though on his unfavoured right foot the Brazilian sliced his shot wide.
It was a far more cagey second-half, as Fred was brought on to further pack the midfield. United suffered a worrying blow as Raphael Varane limped off, the Frenchman in tears with his thoughts surely on the World Cup next month.
Trevoh Chalobah came close to breaking the deadlock from a set-piece, as he beat Fred in the air at the back post but his header flicked off the top of the bar. United’s attacking output was increasingly limited to Fernandes trying his luck from distance.
Jorginho seemingly won it for the Blues in the final minutes, as Scott McTominay brought Broja down in the box just a couple of minutes after coming on. The Italian made no mistake from the spot.
But Casemiro delivered in front of the away end, his superb header coming off the inside of the post and crossing the line by a matter of inches.
Casemiro’s last-minute header broke Chelsea’s hearts when they thought they won it minutes earlier through a Jorginho penalty.
The two English giants shared the spoils after a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.
Jorginho coolly sent David De Gea the wrong way from the spot after Armando Broja won the penalty during a corner routine in the 87th minute.
Casemiro’s towering header in the 94th minute clawed back a point for Erik Ten Hag’s side.
Nizaar Kinsella was at Stamford Bridge to witness the action.
Grandstand finish as both teams score in the final 10 minutes of the match. Point apiece is probably fair on the run of play but Chelsea will be devastated to lose the points late like that.
And that is that at Stamford Bridge.
It wasn’t great for 85 minutes, but the match burst into life late on.
Jorginho’s penalty put Chelsea in front with five minutes remaining, only for Casemiro to equalise deep into stoppage-time!
Incredible. Chelsea pinned right back in their box, United piling on the pressure and the Blues are left stunned.
Ball whipped in and it’s a wonderful header from Casemiro – Kepa can’t keep it out.
90+2 mins: Jorginho with an awful hack on Elanga to bring him down, the most obvious of yellow cards.
Martinez not impressed and gets himself involved, as Jorginho flops to the ground. All a bit of a mess.
90 mins: Shaw with a cynical trip, that helps Chelsea to keeping ticking the seconds away.
Six minutes added on though! This isn’t done yet.
88 mins: McTominay tries to make up for his error as he gets on the end of a cross in the Chelsea box, can’t direct the header though.
Stamford Bridge rocking now.
As calm as ever from the spot, he sends De Gea the wrong way and Chelsea lead late on at Stamford Bridge.
