Peter Drury's commentary adds perfect drama to Casemiro's last minute equaliser

Peter Drury's commentary adds perfect drama to Casemiro's last minute equaliser

Man Utd's draw with Chelsea had plenty of tension and drama, especially at the end, but Drury still managed to add to it all.

Casemiro's first Manchester United goal was pretty dramatic, as he earned his side a point against Chelsea, but Peter Drury took it to another level.

For the second game in-a-row, much of the talk around United's game was about Cristiano Ronaldo, and his decision to walk out on his teammates.

Roy Keane bizarrely decided to defend the United forward, despite the fact he'd have murdered anyone trying that if he'd been captain or manager of a team.

However, on the pitch, his teammates had to do without the five time Ballon d'Or winner, with Erik ten Hag punishing him by leaving him out of the squad to face Chelsea.

Whilst that decision was understandable, it looked like it might have backfired, after Marcus Rashford and Antony both missed chances that Ronaldo would have expected to score, at least when on form.

Having dominated much of the first half, Ten Hag's side then found themselves behind late on at Stamford Bridge, after a much more even second half.

Jorginho looked to have secured all three points when he put home an 87th minute penalty, following Scott McTominay's foul on Armando Broja.

However, deep into injury time, Casemiro flung himself at a cross from Luke Shaw and managed to head the ball over Kepa and just over the line, to make it 1-1.

It was a dramatic end to a game that had been often lacking in quality in the final third and Drury's words only made it more magical.

"Shaw’s delivery," Drury starts.

"One each. Is it? Is it? They’re insisting it is, and so it is!

"Casemiro engulfed.

"Millimetres in a match of margins.

"He was made to wait, a wait worth so very much."

The art of Drury's words is always majestic but it's as much about what he doesn't say and where he pauses to allow the drama to seep in.

He allows the goal itself to have a moment of silence and again as the away supporters scream their delight as the Brazilian midfielder celebrates in front of them, so the viewer can take it all in.

It capped a pretty good few days on the pitch for United, as they beat Tottenham Hotspur in midweek and then got a credible point away to another rival to finish in the top four.

However, it wasn't all great news for Ten Hag and his players, with Raphael Varane having to go off with an injury in the second half.

The Frenchman was in tears as he exited the pitch, with just weeks to go until the World Cup, it doesn't look great for the former Real Madrid defender.
