AZPILICUETA SENT FLYING INTO A PHOTOGRAPHER
When it comes to trying to muscle Romelu Lukaku off the ball, Cesar Azpilicueta really didn’t stand a chance.
As the two fought for possession, the United striker easily shrugged off the Chelsea skipper which sent the Spaniard hurtling off the pitch.
With all of his momentum, Azpilicueta struggled to slow himself down in time and had to use photographer John Peters to stop himself from going any further.
Thankfully, both player and photographer were okay following the incident.

DAVID DE ERROR
It’s fair to say that David de Gea is having a torrid time at the moment.
The Spanish goalkeeper has made the headlines recently for making several uncharacteristic mistakes and it seems its starting to take its toll on De Gea.
Chelsea’s equaliser on Sunday came from yet another De Gea mistake – the third time his error has led to a goal in his last four games.
To put that into perspective, that’s as many in his previous 123 matches combined for United.

Chelsea fans might’ve been a little bit worried seeing Eden Hazard letting out an almighty yawn before Sunday’s clash at Old Trafford.
As the two teams lined up in the tunnel, the cameras picked up the Blues talisman looking quite relaxed moments before kick off.
United’s defenders may have lost sleep thinking about how they were going to deal with Hazard at the Theatre of Dreams, but they coped fairly well against all of Chelsea’s attackers despite De Gea’s nightmare.
