Robin van Persie’s injury-time equaliser rescued a point for Manchester United after Chelsea had been reduced to 10 men.
The captain smashed the ball home in the 94th minute, just after Branislav Ivanovic had given away a free kick and been sent off for his second bookable offence. Angel Di Maria’s effort allowed Marouane Fellaini a shot, which Thibaut Courtois saved only for van Persie to drill emphatically home.
Van Persie had seen three earlier chances saved by Chelsea’s goalkeeper, and his heroics snatched a deserved point following Didier Drogba’s headed effort early in the second half.
Stirred by a raucous atmosphere, both sides had played at a high tempo for the opening minutes with a breakaway from Di Maria upping the ante after an early pair of Chelsea corners. The mercurial Argentine’s shooting was not as good as his on-the-ball skills, with two attempts flying high and wide before 10 minutes had gone by.
