Chelsea defender Gary Cahill was criticized by Chelsea fans for helping Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard back to his feet instead of defending in the buildup to Manchester United’s second goal.

However, Cahill has defended his action after claiming his decision to help Lingard back to his feet wasn’t a costly mistake.

Cahill told Sky Sports: “I don’t see how it could have cost me (picking up player from ground).

“My instinct was I was nervous it could have been a penalty, the sooner I get him on his feet, I can stop the ref thinking otherwise, maybe it looks silly in hindsight.”
