Chelsea scored a late equaliser through their Spanish forward Diego Costa to preserve Chelsea's unbeaten record under new boss Guus Hiddink and deny Manchester United a win at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Thibaut Courtois was a busy man as United inundated the defence area of Chelsea by pouring more men forward as Antony Martial and Jesse Lingard saw their goal bound kicks saved by the big shot stopper.
