Chelsea 1-1 Man United: What Thomas Tuchel And Micheal Carrick Said About The Encounter.

Manchester United Sunday evening forced EPL leader Chelsea to a one all draw in an encounter fully dominated by the blues in Stamford bridge.

Jason Sancho capitalised on Jordinho’s mistake and scored the first goal in the 50th minutes for the red devils while Joginho redeemed his self with a penalty. Speaking

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel on Sky Sports said:

“I’m absolutely happy. I was happy to coach the team, I saw a huge effort, big intensity, so many ball recoveries in the opponents’ half, put the pressure up high. We controlled the counter-attacks before they started, we were brave and courageous.

Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel was happy with his player’s performance but felt they failed to capitalise on some big chances to win the game against Manchester United
“They defended deep and maybe you need the first goal to open up a bit and gain the last per cent of freedom and confidence to have follow-ups and big chances on goal. If you don’t score, you always run a bit behind because you feel like you’re the stronger team, you play in the opponents’ half so we have two or three big chances we should have maybe used. But, in general, I am very happy with the way we played. I was pleased with our aggression, our rhythm and the intensity.”

Man Utd caretaker boss Michael Carrick on Sky Sports said:

“I’m disappointed actually. When you are in front in a game like this to have it taken away is disappointing. I’m proud of the players and the group all week. In a difficult situation we tried to make the best of it. But there is that little bitter feeling. We came to win the game. A little disappointed, I can’t lie.

“I don’t think it was a penalty at all. They have had a lot of shots David had two saves which we knew before the game he would have to make one or two. Other than that I have felt quite comfortable in the game. Of course we want to be better. I am not getting carried away but I thought we defended well. I cannot fault the boys one bit. To come away disappointed and to feel like you have left something out there is a positive.”

Chelsea still retain lead with 30 points followed by Manchester City with 29 points. Manchester United are 8th position of the table with 18 points.
