Chelsea and Manchester United played out a goalless draw on Sunday, with the hosts fortunate to not concede a penalty.
Manchester United lost further ground at the top of the Premier League table as they drew 0-0 at Chelsea on Sunday, Thomas Tuchel’s men benefiting from a contentious call relating to a potential penalty against them.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side came into the weekend 10 points adrift of pacesetters Manchester City, but this draw coupled with the leaders’ 2-1 win at West Ham on Saturday saw the gap increase to 12 as Pep Guardiola closes in on another Premier League title.
While a win for United at Stamford Bridge would not have changed a great deal, they will likely feel hard done by, as Callum Hudson-Odoi escaped unpunished when handling the ball in his own area during the first period.
Both sides had their chances after the interval but neither managed to apply the finishing touch, meaning for the first time in the five meetings between Tuchel and Solskjaer, the away manager could not leave with the spoils.
