Chelsea defender Gary Cahill believes Chelsea magician Eden Hazard was harassed by Manchester United as they constantly fouled our talisman and Cahill also believed the red card to Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera slightly turned the game into our favour.

“That turned it slightly in our favour,” Cahill is quoted on Chelsea official website.

“There were a few fouls leading up to that, so maybe it was slightly silly to go in and make the foul again. We felt Eddie was getting harassed out there early on. There were many fouls, no dangerous ones but niggly ones.

“We dug in and gave a good account of ourselves. I thought it was a professional performance from us. We controlled the game when we needed to, and job done, we’re through.”
