The huge tile: Varane, injured and in tears one month before the World Cup


Kepa, the Spanish goalkeeper of the Blues is also not exempt from any reproach on this but of the former Brazilian midfielder of Real Madrid (90th + 4). Without Cristiano Ronaldo, the Red Devils did not reassure. They also lost on the hour mark Raphaël Varane, the defender of the France team, who was substituted after suffering an injury alone. Obviously worrying one month before the World Cup.

Barren possession for Manchester United and Ten Hag

After a success against Tottenham on Wednesday, commented more for the defiant attitude of Cristiano Ronaldo than for the favorable result (2-0), Erik ten Hag’s players faced another London club at the top of the ranking, Chelsea. Enterprising and flirting with 70% possession throughout the first period, the Red Devils led by Bruno Fernandes found a solid Kepa on their way each time. The Spanish goalkeeper trained at Athletic Bilbao, neo-holder in front of Edouard Mendy since the arrival of Graham Potter, was quickly decisive on a beautiful curled shot from Antony at the foot of his right post (13th). And above all, on two clear chances in full surface of Marcus Rashford (28th, 33rd).

The blow for Varane, Casemiro’s header

While Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s teammates represented the hair of the beast, Raphaël Varane had to face old and unwanted demons again. On an acceleration of the Gabonese striker, the defender of the France team planted his right leg alone in the lawn before leaving on injury, in tears and especially one month before the World Cup (59th). The Londoners, they managed to open the scoring about twenty minutes later, on a penalty obtained by the young incoming Armando Broja and scored by Jorginho (1-0, 87th).

While the partners of the Italian midfield were heading for a 7th success this season in the Premier League, Casemiro equalized with a decided header badly deflected by Kepa, in the last seconds of the match for his first but with his new team (1 -1, 90th+4). Chelsea haven’t won any of their last 10 Premier League games against the Red Devils and Manchester United have only won twice at Stamford Bridge in 10 years. So it’s a draw, an evening that doesn’t help or make anyone happy. Especially not Didier Deschamps.
