Published

on

Manchester United and Chelsea played out a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford as the battle for the premier league top four continues.

Juan Mata had opened the scoring for Manchester United against Chelsea in 10th minute when Chelsea defenders failed to clear their lines.

Alonso restored parity for Chelsea after De Gea spilled Rudiger’s effort to his path just before half time.

Antonio Rudiger was forced off because of a knee injury, while Bailly also hobbled off for Manchester United in the second half.

Both Teams are in contention for the fourth position and a win will put boost their chances but none of them was able to get the maximum points instead they shared the spoils.

Chelsea are two points ahead of Arsenal and three points ahead of Manchester United with two games to go.

Manchester United have not won any of their last four games in all competitions – they have not had a longer winless run since December 2015.

Since his Premier League debut for Chelsea in September 2016, Marcus Alonso has scored more goals than any other defender in the competition (15).

Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri has hailed his players for their performance in the second half

We were the better side after the break and could have won it right at the end, only for De Gea to make amends and deny Gonzalo Higuain.

That chance left Sarri with mixed feelings when he assessed whether it was a good point…

‘If I look at the first 20 minutes I am very happy [with it],’ the boss said. ‘If I look at the last minute when we had the best opportunity of the second half, I am not happy.

We need two wins. With two wins we are sure. With four points, I don’t know, it depends on goal difference.

Chelsea are in action against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League semi final on Thursday.

The rule that would be implemented under this is that there would be no chance given to any players to waste time on the pitch anymore, as substituted players would have to leave the pitch at the closest side of the pitch and card may probably be awarded for wasting time.

PENALTY KICKS

The Goalkeepers would, therefore, have to have a foot put on the line and would not be allowed to touch the goal posts before the shoot out of the penalty kicks. In this manner, no Goalkeeper would be able to exploit any chance to avert an opportunity to lead.

COACHES CARDS

The coach would also have to be carded by the Referee in a similar as players were being carded during a match. Both yellow and red cards would also be applicable to coaches as well as starting from next season.

HANDBALLS

  • The goal would be denied if the ball actually strikes any player’s hand during the development to have a goal.
  • If any player should make any favourable moves in handling the ball outside the penalty kickbox, even if it regarded unintentional, freekicks would be awarded.
  • The IFAB dispose of ‘manufactured’ restarts if there be any drop balls.

The IFAB make it clear that:

“The current dropped ball procedure often leads to a ‘manufactured’ restart which is ‘exploited’ unfairly or an aggressive confrontation.

“Returning the ball to the team that last played it restores what was ‘lost’ when play was stopped, except in the penalty area where it is simpler to return the ball to the goalkeeper.

“To prevent that team gaining an unfair advantage, all players of both teams, except the player receiving the ball, must be at least 4m (4.5 yds) away.”
