Manchester United 1-1 Chelsea: David de Gea mistake proves crucial as Blues hold advantage in top four race

Marcos Alonso drew Chelsea level

Mata fired into an empty net after getting on the end of a Luke Shaw pull-back as the defender drew Kepa Arrizabalaga away from his net.

Just before the break, Antonio Rudiger shot from distance and De Gea couldn’t keep hold of the ball.

Marcos Alonso followed in and dinked a rebound finish over the desperate stopper, which proved to be the game’s decisive blow.

With two games remaining, Chelsea sit fourth in the table
