Manchester United caretaker boss Michael Carrick does not believe Chelsea deserved a penalty in their draw on Sunday.

The Red Devils went ahead through Jadon Sancho but Jorginho converted from the spot to make it 1-1.

Chelsea were awarded the penalty after Aaron Wan-Bissaka fouled Thiago Silva, but Carrick thinks the wrong call was made.

"I don't think it was a penalty, no," Carrick said.

"I don't think it was a penalty at all. I don't know what my opinion counts now, to be honest. I don't think it was a penalty. I think they've obviously had a lot of play, had a lot of shots, David's had two saves, which I kind of knew before the game at some point he's gonna have to make one or two for us. But other than that, I felt quite comfortable in the game, I have to say.

"Of course we want to be better in terms of having the ball and possession and I'm not getting carried away saying it was a fantastic performance but I thought we defended ever so well. I thought the atitude was absolutely top from the boys, putting bodies on the line when we had to, sticking together, tracking back, we've obviously got to do the other side a bit better but I cannot fault the boys one bit from today."
