Narrow escape for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea FC on Saturday in a English Premier League game almost lost to wonded Manchester United side, thanks to a last minute goal from Ross Barkley that saved Chelsea's day.
Rudiger opened scoring for the Blues in the 21st minute of the encounter by heading home Willian corner kick, no thanks to Paul Pogba who failed to properly mark Rudiger. The first half ended 1-0 in favour of the host.

In the 55th minute of the cracked, Martial punished the Blues for poor defending to restore parity to the visiting team.

It was Martial again in the 73th minute with another beautiful finish, no thanks to the Blues defence including the Goalkeeper who failed to organize themselves at back line. Rashford did well to have connected Martial who buried the ball at the back of the net.

Sari boys could not restore themselves back to the game in the normal regulation time but made a wise use of the injury and got the equaliser in the 6th minute of the injury time, thanks to Rose Barkley quick response after the first attempt from a Chelsea player hit the woodwork and the second attempt was saved by De Gea, but nothing and absolutely nothing could obstruct the third attempt from Barkley from hitting the back of the net.
After 90 minutes, it was Chelsea 2-2 Manchester United, courtesy of Martial's brace for United and one goal a piece from Rudiger and Barkley for Chelsea

Following a draw against Manchester United, Chelsea remained unbeaten in 2018/2019 season English Premier League.
