Manchester United snatched a hard-fought draw against Chelsea in the Premier League. The match-up with the most draws in Premier League history presented another draw. The final result was fair, to say the least. United was the better team in the first half, while Chelsea controlled the second.
Chelsea was awarded a penalty in the 85th minute of the game, and Jorginho calmly covered it from the spot. The points were almost sealed when Casemiro leaped high to convert a cross from Luke Shaw and headed the ball home. The late goals were a testament to the competitiveness shown by the Red Devils.
Manchester United Coach Erik Ten Hag impressed by Casemiro
Casemiro had a fantastic game in the centre of the park. He was constantly breaking Chelsea attacks while also playing an integral part in the Manchester United build-ups. The goal in the game’s dying minutes was the icing on the cake.
Casemiro impressed Erik Ten Hag with his performance. Ten Hag said in the post-match press conference.
“For me, he’s [Casemiro] brilliant. You can see why he’s won five Champions League trophies, at the top for that long in world football. And you can see every match, every training and I think he will only be better and better and contribute more to the team.”
“He told me when we had the first talk he needs a new challenge.” “Because with Real Madrid, he won everything.”
“He was a big part of Real Madrid. Still, they don’t want him to go, but he had the feeling I have to go to another club, to another league to prove myself, and that shows his hunger; I really like that.”
“From the first day, he is coming with that attitude to every training, to every match, and he proves it. I really like it, and he will be more and more important to our team.”
“I said it the other day; he is the cement between the stones in and out of possession. You see him growing from game to game, and with that, our team is growing. We are really happy with that process, but we have to keep that process going because we are not satisfied; good is not good enough; we have to do better, so tomorrow we have another challenge and another test to do better.”
