However, Manchester United took the lead in the game courtesy a goal scored by Jadon Sancho in the 50th minute of the game when Jorginho made a terrible mistake at the back. Jorginho redeemed himself by scoring from the penalty spot to put Chelsea on level terms with Manchester United. The target of Chelsea to secure 3 points in the game backfired as the team could only settle for a point. Chelsea's draw today reduced its point gap at the top from 3 points to just a point.
Manchester City reclaimed its 2nd position from Liverpool after its 2:1 win over West Ham United. Brentford secured the 3 points in its game against Everton. Watford failed to put up a sterling performance as they did in their last league game against Manchester United.
