Cameron Borthwick-Jackson put in another good shift for Manchester United on Sunday afternoon and, like against Stoke, it was his ball in to the box which resulted with Jesse Lingard scoring. However, in injury time, Borthwick Jackson was the player to play Diego Costa onside when he scored.
Louis van Gaal has praised the youngster regardless and claimed he is very proud of the teenager.
We continued with our good, attacking football. We have created a lot of chances here at Chelsea. It’s a nasty away game, I think, and one that’s not so easy. The last few years Manchester United haven’t won here so it’s not an easy match – and we took the lead with a fantastic goal. A fantastic cross also. Then you can control the game, but in the last quarter we gave it away.
There are many details which are responsible for that. We had a lot of free-kicks around the penalty area against us and we survived. Chelsea have very good set-plays and they have scored a lot from set-plays, so we were well organised. But then we have a goal like that – Daley Blind slipping and Borthwick-Jackson not taking the line of the defence. Costa is not offside because of that. It was such a pity because Borthwick-Jackson was playing fantastically and I was very proud of him. It was a superb performance until the last quarter.
