Manchester United 1 – 1 Arsenal

10 years streak without a win at “Old Trafford” will remain as Manchester United tied with Arsenal. The result was more disappointing for Jose Mourinho’s side as the result “felt more like a defeat” for The Red Devils. Manchester United dominated most of the game and the reward came in the second half with a Mata Goal who put one past Petr Cech. But Arsenal struck late. on the 89th minute Marcus Rashford failed to close down Alex Oxlaid Chamberlain’s cross which resulted a Giroud equaliser. The England youngster (Rashford) received a lot of criticism for failing to close down Chamberlain’s effort. Jose Mourinho described it as an “isolated situation” which had little influence on the game as a whole.

Middlesbrough 0 – 1 Chelsea

Middlesbrough looked well prepared for The Blues this time. They managed to create a strong defence and kept it until the end of the 1st half. Conte’s boys attacked and pressed, but the goal was conceded due to  lack of concentration for a split second. Costa looked alive as 4 Middlesbrough defenders stood still when the ball hung in the air after a corner kick. The Blues had more chances in the second half: Pedro hit the woodwork, which looked to be a 100 percent goal. Middlesbrough players could not come up with a goal and the game ended with Chelsea’s 6th victory in a row with 0 goals conceded.
