English Premier League
Result: Chelsea 11 Manchester United
Date: November 28, 2021
Location: Stamford Bridge
Michael Carrick made the unexpected decision to leave Ronaldo when Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes returned to the line of fire while Romelu Lukaku came to the Blues team of the day.
Callum HudsonOdoi should have given Chelsea the lead in the first five minutes after falling through United's base but the winger couldn't find anything but David de Gea.
Together they were happy to pause and absorb three tensions in the meantime, but could not counter-attack with the speed of Rashford and Jadon Sancho.
The Blues almost got their prize in the 30th minute when Antonio Rüdiger hit the bar with an amazing long-range shot that left De Gea without a chance.
Anyway, everything changed within four minutes of the second half when a touch of helplessness from Jorginho allowed Sancho to walk clearly and objectively and open up to Edouard Mendy for his club goal.
That was Sancho's last significant contribution to the experience, because shortly after an hour Ronaldo moved onto the field to score his first club goal against the Blues.
Chelsea were punished in the 67th minute when Aaron WanBissaka brought Thiago Silva's hit point into the box. Jorginho stepped forward and pressed himself gently into the corner of the base to make up for the problems.
The two teams made changes in the final 15 minutes as Carrick Rashford eliminated for Jesse Lingard while Chelsea introduced Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount.
Rudiger had a chance to win the conflict on the final kick of the game, but the Blues secured the volley over and over and over the bar with only De Gea to win when the experience completed all the squares.
