Costa saves point for Chelsea


Diego Costa’s late goal earned Chelsea a draw

Diego Costa scored a late equaliser earned his side a 1-1 draw which preserved Chelsea’s unbeaten record under interim boss Guus Hiddink and denied Manchester United a win.

United dominated early on, Thibaut Courtois producing a fine one-handed save to keep out Anthony Martial.

David de Gea saved well from Nemanja Matic’s header before Jesse Lingard’s fine turn and shot put United ahead.

Costa rescued a point in the 91st minute after rounding De Gea following Cesc Fabregas’ pass.

United were moments away from moving to within four points of the top four when Costa scored his seventh goal in eight games.

Chelsea, who lost defender Kurt Zouma to a serious injury, remain 13th in the table.

This will feel like a defeat for United after a bright start and a wonderful goal to give them the lead in what was an entertaining draw between two teams struggling for form.

Apart from the late equaliser, Louis van Gaal’s side produced a display full of positives after recent criticism about the team’s style and reports linking former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho with the United job.
