It was a very drab draw between Chelsea and Manchester United, as both sides played out a goalless draw at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The match lacked entertainment and there weren’t too many clear-cut chances.

When analysing the game, Manchester United legend Patrice Evra slammed both sets of players for not having a go.

“The players were playing with a safety jacket on and I don’t like that,” Evra told Sky Sports.

“I want entertainment. I want players to play without fear.”

In response, United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer claimed that his side were the better team for one hour.

“Well I think the boys started a little bit slow, the first 20/25 minutes, but I thought if there was going to be a winner in the last hour, or 65 minutes, it was going to be us who created the biggest chances,” said Solskjaer.

“There’s two good teams out there and we decided to get out of the box to try to get a foothold in the game and we didn’t create too many chances.

“But then Marcus had a good chance in the first half, good save by the keeper. Marcus had a good shot towards the end as well.

“I thought if there was going to be a winner, it was going to be us. You’ve got to remember we’re playing against a good team here. So I’m pleased with the players.”
