Wayne Rooney: Don't blame Memphis for Chelsea's late leveller

The Dutch ace came off the bench with five minutes left on the watch at Stamford Bridge and United leading 1-0.

But he’s been blamed for gifting Chelsea the chance to equalise late on when misplacing a pass intended for Morgan Schneiderlin.

The Blues broke forward in numbers and Diego Costa rounded David de Gea to bag an injury time leveller.

Rooney admits the 22-year-old made the wrong call, but refused to blame him for United dropping two crucial points.

“I think we're all disappointed,” the club captain said.

“Memphis is a fantastic player and that happens, we all give bad passes away.

“A lot of things happened from when you give the ball away to when they've scored the goal, so I don't think we can stand here and blame Memphis.

“I thought it was a good performance, I thought we played some nice stuff, it feels like a defeat in the end.

“We've performed well and played some good stuff again but, overall, it's at this stage of the season that results matter and today we've dropped two points.”
