Manchester United drew 1-1 with Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

While Chelsea looked much the better side and dominated possession throughout the first 45 minutes, Jadon Sancho would score - his second for the club - to give United the lead in the second half. Michael Carrick dropped Cristian Ronaldo to the bench for the Reds' versus Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, but that brave decision seemed vindicated when United went one goal ahead.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka's reckless challenge on Thiago Silva shortly after Sancho's goal would give Chelsea a penalty, though.

With the score level, both sides searched for a match-winner as the game reached the latter stages, but the points were shared.

"Slightly disappointed to be honest. We went ahead. We came here to win the game. To go 1-0 up and have it taken away from you is disappointing. That intent and that hunger summed us up today. We knew it wasn't going to be free flowing football at times but we were prepared to dig in," caretaker manager Carrick reflected.

Ralf Rangnick's interim appointment at the club is now imminent and it's expected to be made official on Monday.

Manchester United's changes in the dugout are starting to pay off

David de Gea was the saviour and there was a counter-attacking goal. Manchester United's domestic homage to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's management extended to a winless result, although they will view this as a progressive stride.

Michael Carrick could approach the away end at full-time knowing he would not be treated to a reception his predecessor received eight days earlier. The United fans serenaded managers past and present.

With Solskjaer gone, United are a different entity and, on early evidence, perhaps Solskjaer should have been more receptive to the ideas of his rookie first-team coaches who coached the players on a daily basis.

Carrick could not quite repeat the tactical triumph of Villarreal. United deliberately allowed their opponents more dominance but were clinging on during phases of the first and second-halves. Chelsea will rue Romelu Lukaku's injury that reduced him to a cameo and Timo Werner's profligacy.

De Gea reacts to draw

David de Gea spoke to Sky Sports after the draw.

"We already improved against Villareal, we won, qualified and now we played a very good team away from home. The effort of the team was very good. They had the best chances. For me it is not enough, a draw. We are in a tough moment. I am proud of the effort of the team.

"On the pitch, in the goal, I was feeling danger for nearly the whole game. We defended well, they missed big chances and the one they give us a chance we score. It is not enough to draw but at the moment it is a big point.

"The last games before we were conceding three or four goals. We are improving. This is just two games. At least now we are defending well. We are fighting for every ball. We are a team."

Manchester United player ratings: De Gea and Sancho good

David de Gea

Denied Callum Hudson-Odoi and Antonio Rudiger with fine saves in a first-half Chelsea dominated. Key to another positive result. 8

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Made a couple of mistakes that led to chances and had to be told where to stand. Too far away to hear when he gave away the penalty.. 4

Victor Lindelof

Let Callum Hudson-Odoi in early on but recovered and had a steady afternoon without Harry Maguire or Raphael Varane. 7

Eric Bailly

Back on form after his disastrous derby appearance last month. The most impressive of United's defenders until one late transgression. 7
