Maurizio Sarri reacts to Chelseas draw against Manchester United

Sarri not entirely pleased with the outcome

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has said that he is not entirely pleased with the club's 1-1 Premier League draw against Manchester United on the road.

The Blues managed to secure a point from the crunch encounter but they could have maximised the result, had Gonzalo Higuain scored with a clear-cut chance in the dying seconds of the game.

Speaking after the match, Sarri produced a mixed reaction over the performance with the west London outfit squandering the best chance of the game towards the end.

He told Football.London: "If I look at the first 20 minutes I am very happy, but if I look at the last minute with the best goal opportunity I am not happy. It is difficult to play here."

Meanwhile, Sarri emphasised that the stalemate does not remain too important to the team's cause and they may need to win the final two games to seal Champions League football for next season.

When asked about the race for the top-four, he added: "The draw is not too important as we need to win the last two matches, otherwise we are unable to get top four."

Chelsea are currently two points ahead of fifth-placed Arsenal in the standings. They are scheduled to face Watford and Leicester City at home and away respectively in the final two matches.
