United took the lead in the second-half when Jadon Sancho made the most of Jorginho's mistake on the halfway line, grabbing his second goal in as many games.

The former Dortmund man celebrated in front of the Red Devils' supporters, before quickly being joined by his team-mates.

Like his colleagues, Fernandes - who captained the away side in the absence of Harry Maguire - enjoyed Sancho's opener but soon became frustrated with a steward who was attempting to keep the United players away from the fans.

The steward attempted to move the United players, which angered Fernandes - leading him to shove the steward before arguing with him, presumably about his actions.

Brazilian left-back Alex Telles noticed what was occurring and ushered the Portugal international away from the corner where the celebrations were taking place.

Thomas Tuchel's side levelled proceedings in the 69th minute when Jorginho made up for his earlier mistake by converting a penalty after Aaron Wan-Bissaka fouled Thiago Silva in the penalty area.

Both teams had chances to secure all three points towards the end of the match, with Fred missing a good chance for United, before Antonio Rüdiger blazed an effort over the bar in injury-time.

The draw ensured that Chelsea remained at the top of the Premier League table but it did allow Manchester City and Liverpool to reduce their lead at the summit after both sides picked up victories at the weekend.
