Sunday’s game against Manchester United could have ended in a 2-2 draw had the officials taken their chances.

Just after 90 minutes of action with United leading 2-1, Cesc Fabregas played a beautiful through ball for Alvaro Morata who sent the ball home, but the goal was ruled out for offside.

Unfortunately, video evidence shows Morata was played onside by Victor Lindelof, and so his goal should have stood.

On the Morata disallowed goal, Drinkwater told Match of the Day: “I’ve not watched it back – was it onside? It’s one of them, we’ve just got to look forward to the next game now.”

The defeat sees Chelsea fall two points out of the Premier League’s top four after Tottenham narrowly beat Crystal Palace earlier in the day.

Drinkwater added: “I didn’t see Spurs’ game, I was concentrated on ours.

“But it’s down to us now, we have to get our results in order and hopefully the other results will look after themselves.”
