[Video Goals] Man Utd 1-1 Chelsea: Van Persie Rescues Late Point For Utd

By on October 26, 2014

Robin van Persie scored a last minute equaliser as Manchester United drew 1-1 with league leaders Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

After a goalless first half, Chelsea opened the scoring early in the second period when Didier Drogba headed home a Cesc Fabregas corner in the 53rd minute, with van Persie unable to keep it out on the line.

As Jose Mourinho’s men looked set to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table, Branislav Ivanovic was sent off deep into stoppage time after giving away a free kick on the edge of the area.

Thibaut Courtois kept out Marouane Fellaini’s header from the resulting free kick but van Persie was on hand to fire home from close range for 1-1.
