Robin Van Persie’s 94th Minute goal gives Manchester United a draw Against Chelsea
Robin van Persie’s last minute goal rescued a point for Manchester United as Chelsea and United share a 1-1 draw.
Chelsea looked to be heading for a victory after Didier Drogba‘s second-half strike had given them the lead. Drogba puts Chelsea ahead as he takes advantage of an aerial mismatch with Rafael to head past David de Gea in the United goal, scoring for the first time in the Premier League since returning this summer.
Branislav Ivanovic had been sent off in the injury time for a second booking for a foul on Angel di Maria in the last minute of stoppage time and Robin Van Persie immediately equalised for United smashing the ball past Courtois in the final minute of the match to rescue a point for his team.
It was a result that will prove to Louis van Gaal‘s side that they can compete with the best in the league without Wayne Rooney and Radamel Falcao. For Chelsea, though, it will be seen as a major missed opportunity.
Chelsea’s lead in the Barclays Premier League is now four points over Southampton, while they are six points better off than Manchester City following City’s 2-1 defeat against West Ham United on Saturday.
