Old friends Louis Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho enjoyed a pre-match hug and a share of the spoils on Sunday as Manchester United and Chelsea drew one all in a thrilling encounter at Old Trafford.

Dider Drogba scored his first league goal since March 2012 after his header glanced in off Robin Van Persie early in the second half.

The Blue’s appeared to be heading for the full three points as the game went to stoppage time.

But Van Persie thundered home a rebound on 93 minutes after a powerful Marouane Fellaini header was saved by Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

The late strike sent the Theatre of Dreams into wild celebrations and Mourinho and his former Barcelona boss Van Gaal home with one point each.
