Some draws feel like defeats in football, and that can certainly be said about our point at home against Manchester United on Sunday, which in latter years we’d have definitely took.
But not yesterday, not when we totally bossed the game and created 24 chances at goal and only scored one via a penalty.

United are not the team of yesteryear, and they were there for the taking. Poor finishing from Chelsea meant we didn’t take all three points yesterday, and that is very disappointing.
Callum Hudson-Odoi was one of those to miss a big chance yesterday, and he has admitted that in his reaction thoughts via the Chelsea website.
The young winger says he feels ‘disappointed’ with the draw and it is a ‘vital’ two points dropped from his perspective.
This is an encouraging reaction from the attacker, who will know that he needs to be doing more in front of goal despite another good performance on the pitch.
“I feel like it’s two vital points dropped,’ he said.
“We dominated the game, we had chances and even I had a big chance myself but it was a good save by De Gea.
“It was a disappointing one for us today. I thought we played really well, we worked hard off the ball and we deserved the three points so it definitely feels like two dropped.
“It was just the last bit in the box really. We did everything else really well. Our build-up play was good, even around the box at times, but it was just the last bit that we missed and scoring that goal that we needed.
“It was disappointing not to get it but we have to recover, reflect on the game and go again on Wednesday [against Watford] to try to get the win.
“It’s obviously important to be top but games like today where we’re on top and we feel like we dropped two points are hard.
“We feel like if we had won we could have stayed three points ahead so it’s definitely disappointing but we have the one point and at least we didn’t lose the game.”
