Jorginho recovered from gifting Jadon Sancho his first Premier League goal to score a penalty and earn leaders Chelsea a draw with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.

Set up to counter-attack by caretaker boss Michael Carrick, United offered little going forward in the first half, but Sancho pounced on Jorginho’s heavy touch to put the away side ahead five minutes after the break.

However, the Italian redeemed himself when he calmly converted a 69th-minute penalty, which was awarded by referee Anthony Taylor after Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s foul on Thiago Silva.

The result leaves Chelsea a point ahead of Manchester City, with United remaining in eighth place.
