Nemanja Matic disagrees with fans over Manchester United vs Chelsea result claim

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has disagreed with fans claiming Chelsea deserved all three points at Old Trafford.

Man United started the first half on the wrong foot and let off a few big chances but Chelsea failed to capitalised from any.

David de Gea was forced to make five saves in the first 45 minutes, compared to United’s lone shot on target.

After a quiet first half, but sides gave their fans something to brag about when Marcos Alonso scored the opener from a close range and Cristiano Ronaldo scored the equaliser a few seconds later.

The game became opened afterwards and but sides created a few chances to get the match-winning goal.

In the last ten minutes, Manchester United looked more like the team to get the winner but didn’t and Matic feels a draw was the right result.

Nemanja Matic told Sky Sports: “We played a good game, I won’t say we were much better than them but it was an equal game and 1-1 is a fair result.

“Maybe they had some more opportunities than us, but I think 1-1 is a fair result.

“We showed that we didn’t give up, we showed character, so we equalise after a couple of minutes, so it was a good reaction from our team.”

Nemanja Matic provided the assist to Cristiano Ronaldo’s volley and claimed that he saw the Portuguese icon running in behind the defence line before he lofted the ball over to him.

Nemanja Matic on what he saw while passing to Cristiano Ronaldo: “I saw him! [laughs].

“I saw him running, so I had to use some of my qualities [to find him].”
