‘What is he thinking?’ – Jamie Carragher slams Aaron Wan-Bissaka after Manchester United defender concedes penalty during Chelsea draw

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher slammed Aaron Wan-Bissaka after the Manchester United defender conceded a penalty during his team’s draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

£75m summer signing Jadon Sancho took advantage of a rare Jorginho error to score his first Premier League goal and put the Red Devils ahead early into the second half in west London on Sunday.

But Chelsea’s pressure told 20 minutes later when Jorginho equalised from the spot after Wan-Bissaka fouled Thiago Silva from a corner.

The draw at Stamford Bridge means Chelsea stay top of the Premier League – one point ahead of defending champions Manchester City – while Manchester United climb two places up to eighth.

‘I think it is a penalty,’ Carragher said while commentating on the match for Sky Sports. ‘It’s very rash from Wan-Bissaka.

‘He kicked right through the back of him. It’s reckless. What is he thinking? Thiago Silva’s back is to goal.’

This was Manchester United’s first Premier League match since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s sacking last weekend. German manager Ralf Rangnick is expected to be appointed the club’s caretaker boss until the end of the season.

While Chelsea may be content with the point given they trailed in the second half, Blues defender Antonio Rudiger missed a glorious chance with virtually the last kick of the game, smashing a volley over the bar.

Former Chelsea midfielder Karen Carney said on BBC Radio 5 Live: ‘It was a floated ball in, Antonio Rudiger had too much time, he almost connected with it too well.

‘He’s gutted, he’s still got his hands on his head and he knows how big of a moment that is.

‘As a player, you know you can score, but the game slows down when you have that much time and Rudiger’s just put his foot through it.’

Manchester United face Arsenal at Old Trafford on Thursday night while Chelsea return to action on Wednesday against Watford.
