After Thursday evenings clash at Old Trafford, United are denied a chance in the Champions League.

After Chelsea dominated the first half with Kai Havertz creating a number of chances, Spaniard Marcos Alonso finally managed to volley them into the lead during the second half. Just two minutes later Cristiano Ronaldo fires it past Edouard Mendy with an assist from Matic bringing back liveliness into Old Trafford levelling the score to 1-1. 

David de Gea made several superb saves that evening which needlessly goes to show his hard-working efforts will not go dismissed.  

When asked in an interview, ‘Did you deserve more there?’ Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel replied, ‘Of course we deserved to win but we didn’t get it, so we have to accept it.’ The gaffer then went on to say, ‘We’re always concerned because every game is difficult, so I'm personally always concerned I'm always concerned about our performance.’ ‘We are Chelsea, and we take care about ourselves’ 

During a post-match interview United’s interim manager Ralf Rangnick stated, ‘It was unrealistic (the Champions League dream) before the game if we’re honest’ The boss also commented ‘For us it's important that we finish the season on a good note, on a high note.’ as united have a home game with Brentford on Monday 2nd May.

Rangnick also mentioned a little bit about Ronaldo saying, 'At the age of 37, a player like him, this is not normal to do that. He showed if he plays like he did today he can still be a great help.'

Chelsea striker Kai Havertz known as ‘King Kai’ had been in good form in recent games prior to the match at Old Trafford. However, the German missed out on his opportunity to uphold his good form when he missed a one to one with David De Gea and a chance to header it in. Both times assisted by midfielder N’golo Kante.
