“He can’t play World Cup” Jorginho and Casemiro score late goals as Varane leaves the pitch in tears

The final few minutes of a game that appeared headed for a scoreless draw sprang to life, but Varane’s World Cup hopes appear to be ended due to injury.

A few minutes after Jorginho had given Chelsea the lead from the penalty spot, Casemiro scored his first goal for Manchester United at the perfect time to earn a point.

The last six Premier League games between the two teams have been all square, with three 0-0s and three 1-1 draws. This is despite the fact that both clubs have replaced and removed their managers in recent years.

After Scott McTominay wrestled Armando Broja to the ground in the 87th minute, Jorginho gave his team the lead. For a long time, it appeared like the mostly quiet game would end scoreless. Casemiro superbly guided a header past Kepa’s extended fingertips and in off the post as United fought back and equalized. The absent Cristiano Ronaldo would have been pleased with the effort.

While Chelsea struggled to match United in midfield, United completely dominated the first half, pelting Kepa Arrizabalaga’s goal with eight attempts and four shots on goal before the break. Graham Potter changed the formation from a 3-4-3 to a 4-3-3 after just 36 minutes due to the host team’s obvious struggles. Mateo Kovacic replaced Marc Cucurella.

Prior to the late goals, Raphael Varane’s tearful exit from the field after appearing to twist his knee awkwardly as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sprinted by him was the most notable event of the second half. Varane’s ability to represent the defending World Cup champions France in Qatar in a month must be seriously questioned based on that response.
