Manchester United and Chelsea played out a stale 0-0 draw at Old Trafford on Saturday evening, with both teams playing it safe in an extremely dull affair.

The first half passed without incident, although Marcus Rashford was presented with a good chance to break the deadlock, but Edouard Mendy was up to the task and parried his shot away from goal. The second half was equally as tame, with neither side seemingly intent on winning the match.

Man Utd and Chelsea both had half-chances as the game progressed, and Rashford almost snatched the points with a last-minute curler, but Mendy once again kept his side level.

The referee finally put us all out of our misery with the sweetest of final whistles, and the two teams had to settle for a point each for their limp efforts.

Let’s take a look at the player ratings from a painful evening at Old Trafford.

3. Forwards

Juan Mata (RW) – 5/10 – Hoped to provide that extra guile and trickery that the front three needed. Stung Mendy’s palms with a nice effort before half-time. Subbed.



Marcus Rashford (ST) – 6/10 –
Spurned a great chance when clean through on goal early on. Drove at Chelsea’s defence and gave them no rest. Almost won it at the end – unlucky.

Dan James (LW) – 5/10 –

Very fast runner. Not so good at football. Got into some dangerous positions, but struggled to get the better of the equally rapid James. Subbed.

6. Midfielders

Timo Werner (ST) – 5/10 – Looked incredibly isolated despite the amount of attacking talent surrounding him. Pulled to the left to try and drag players out of position, but found little success.
