Manchester United Reserves came back from 2-0 down against Chelsea today to earn a last grasp draw. Both Fabio and Rafael Da Silva were playing after missing out on any action yesterday against Portsmouth.
David Gray captained a United side which included the likes of Richard Eckersley, Darron Gibson, Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley in their away trip to Chelsea.
By half time, the blues were 2-0 up following goals from Jacob Mellis and Scott Sinclair, in a game which started with them rattling the woodwork with 30 seconds played.
However, with 75 minutes on the clock, Fabio scored from 25 yards, with the Chelsea keeper getting his finger tips to it but wasn’t able to keep it out. Both Cleverley and Cameron Stewart came close to scoring, pressing hard for the equaliser.
With time running out, Daniel Drinkwater was brought down in the area, with Gibson scoring from the spot.
