Fofana performs from the rear. A careless right-to-left pass was made over the Chelsea box’s front. Rashford scores after Sancho’s interception by the right side of the defence (D) was deflected by Kepa. Rashford pounced on the loose ball and scored from six yards away. Chelsea is in ruins.
Rashford is forced to turn around as Fernandes rakes a pass down the inside-left channel and almost releases him. But after passing to Garnacho, he firmly curls in the direction of the bottom right. Wide. But it doesn’t matter.
Fernandes nutmegs Fofana before going down the left side of the box. Frustrated, Fofana extends a leg and strikes his opponent with it. This is the first penalty Chelsea has given up in the Premier League this year, and the referee points to the spot.
Gallagher charges into the United box from the inside-left channel and falls over while grabbing his face. Casemiro is in the neighbourhood. United supporters will hope it’s not true.
Chelsea makes two changes: Felix and Pulisic replace Havertz and Mudryk. Havertz has the gall to scream a little as he leaves. He’d be wise to heed his counsel given how blunt he and his teammates have been in front of goal tonight and over the whole season.
