Winners and losers from Man Utd and Chelsea’s dull draw at Old Trafford

Manchester United and Chelsea could not be separated as the two battled out a goalless draw at Old Trafford with the Premier League returning following a midweek of Champions League action.

In a game of few chances, it’s arguably the visitors who would be happier with a point.

Marcus Rashford had the best opportunity for United though saw his first half effort saved by Blues goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

Edinson Cavani came off the bench to make his Red Devils debut and almost made it a dream start with his first touch sending a cross just wide of Mendy’s goal.

And though there was very little action, Daily Star Sport have managed to pick out a few winners and losers from the encounter.


Aaron Wan-Bissaka

United’s best defender on the night. Got forward when he could while also made some vital tackles.

Had to deal with a change of system compared to Wednesday’s Champions League win over PSG but it didn’t faze the former Crystal Palace star.

Reece James

Impressed going both forward and back, arguably helped by Frank Lampard’s set-up.

By playing five at the back, James had the benefit of having Cesar Azpilicueta inside him and the wing-back made the most of it.

Edouard Mendy

Had a shaky moment early on as he almost put into his own net but stood up well to stop a Marcus Rashford effort in the first-half before denying the striker again late on.

Already looks much more secure than Kepa Arrizabalaga ever did in the Chelsea net and appears to have settled well with his new defence.

Edinson Cavani

Finally made his Manchester United debut – and it was so nearly a dream start for the Uruguayan.

His first touch saw him flick a Bruno Fernandes cross just past the post, though it was his only chance of his 30 minutes on the pitch.

Harry Maguire

It’s not been the best few weeks for Maguire, and he was perhaps fortunate it didn’t get much worse.

Many believe the defender should have been penalised for climbing all over Cesar Azpilicueta in the penalty box.

Timo Werner

The German has struggled in the Premier League since joining Chelsea in the summer.

Many thought we would start to see the best of him after his brace against Southampton last week but he didn’t get much service or joy against United and was subbed after 70 minutes.

Daniel James

Perhaps fortunate to keep his place from last week’s win over Newcastle, but the Welshman struggled to make an impact.

There was transfer interest over the former Swansea star in the summer but Solskaer seems adamant to persist with the youngster, though he won’t accept many more performances like this.

Kai Havertz

Like team-mate Werner, this summer signing doesn’t seem to have settled yet either.

Havertz was also taken off before the game was up with Chelsea finding it difficult to get anything flowing going forward.
