Chelsea star Danny Drinkwater is still wondering how Manchester United beat his side after Blues dominance, insisting his side deserved more from Sunday's defeat.

Chelsea took the lead at Old Trafford thanks to Willian’s opener but Romelu Lukaku’s equaliser made sure the two sides went in at half-time with the score tied at 1-1. The Blues were the better of the two sides but Lukaku teed up substitute Jesse Lingard with 15 minutes left to complete the comeback.

Drinkwater who is a graduate of United’s academy in a post-match reaction says his former club did not deserve to take all three points from the match.

"We definitely deserved more, first half we were dominant. First half was more even, but we didn't deserve to lose that match, no way.

"Obviously there are bits we can improve on, first of all we can improve on not conceding, and scoring more goals.

"But football can sometimes go against you and today's one of those days." said the former Leicester City man in The Daily Star

The defeat sees Chelsea fall two points out of the Premier League’s top four after Tottenham narrowly beat Crystal Palace earlier on Sunday.
