Christian Eriksen Speaks On Playing Without Cristiano Ronaldo In The Squad After Chelsea Draw

Speaking to MUTV, Christian Eriksen said: “It [the result] does feel like a big relief compared to the six minutes before with the penalty against us.

“It was a big blow. But, obviously, it shows the character, and what a nice header! It was [a cracking header] — a very strong neck!.

“A very nice goal from Casemiro. I think that’s what the fans want to go to the stadium for, that’s what we as players want to achieve.

“We want to entertain and score goals and celebrate with the fans. It was perfect timing to score at that end, to celebrate with the fans.”

Manchester United rescued a 1–1 draw away at Chelsea on Saturday thanks to Casemiro’s late header after conceding a penalty in the 87th minute.

Cristiano Ronaldo was dropped from the matchday squad by Erik ten Hag after walking off the pitch early in the draw against Newcastle a week before.
