Casemiro scored a late equaliser for Manchester United as their match with Chelsea ended in a draw while Manchester City bounced back from the Liverpool defeat against Brighton while the Reds lost their weekend clash.

The most high-profile clash on the weekend saw Manchester United overrun Chelsea early with Erik Ten Hag’s men easily outmanoeuvring the home side’s midfield but were kept out by a resurgent Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Matteo Kovacic’s introduction before half-time evened the playing field and the match settled into a pattern of little chances for either side.

Chelsea managed to finally draw first blood in the 87th minute when Jorginho put away the penalty which resulted from a Scott McTominy foul. It looked to be the winner until Casemiro managed to send a towering header goalward which ended up in the back of the net after hitting the right upright in the 94th minute.

The draw between Chelsea and Manchester United means little for their standings as the Blues remain one point clear in the table with 21 from 11 games.

Meanwhile, Erling Haaland scored another brace for Manchester City to power them past a stubborn Brighton and Hove Albion side 3-1 at home as they recovered from the Liverpool defeat in time.

Haaland got his 16th and 17th league goals this season in the first half before Leandro Trossard made things interesting to open the second period. The threat of an equaliser loomed until the 73rd minute when Kevin De Bruyne rifled in a shot from distance to seal all three points.

Earlier in the day, Liverpool succumbed to a surprise defeat against bottom-place Nottingham Forest ruining their effort from a week ago.
