Manchester United caretaker coach Michael Carrick praised his midfield trio after grabbing a draw against Chelsea away from home.

The Red Devils had to defend for large portions of the game, with Chelsea dominating in shots, chances created, and corners.

However, a Jadon Sancho counter attacking goal gave them an unlikely lead, before Jorginho equalized from the penalty spot.

Asked about midfielders Fred, Scott McTominay, and Nemanja Matic post-game by the club media, Carrick said: "I thought the three of them were fantastic.

"We tried to make it as predictable as we could so we forced them into certain spaces and avenues that we could adapt to and I thought Nemanja, Scotty and Fred were top-drawer today.

"Scotty at times had to drop into the backline and Hudson-Odoi was pulling into little areas, pulling wide at times, Alonso was inside off the line and they put five and six across that frontline so we needed Scotty at times to drop in. Between the three of them they were terrific."
