Why Marc Cucurella was subbed before half-time during Chelsea 1 Manchester United 1

Chelsea faced off with Manchester United on Saturday evening.

Chelsea and Manchester United had played out four draws in a row in the Premier League before Saturday.

As a result, another tight game was expected. And when all was said and done at the Bridge, that is exactly what happened.

Neither side created too many chances, with a rash decision from Scott McTominay handing Chelsea a penalty and what many thought was the winner.

However, Casemiro pulled a goal back for United in injury-time to rescue a probably deserved point.

Manchester United had the better of Chelsea in the first half, with Marc Cucurella taken off for the Blues after 38 minutes.

Now, Chelsea boss Graham Potter has explained why he took the Spaniard off:

“It’s just a feeling I had. It wasn’t an easy decision to make at all but the boys responded really well and gave everything.”
