Manchester United assistant Ryan Giggs did not take Diego Costa's equaliser for Chelsea well.

Manchester United assistant Ryan Giggs could not believe his team's misfortune as Diego Costa scored a late equaliser for Chelsea.

The Red Devils had looked as though they were heading for an impressive away win after taking a 1-0 lead late in the second half through Jesse Lingard's goal.

They came close, only to be denied by Spanish striker Diego Costa beating international teammate David de Gea in stoppage time to claim a 1-1 draw and a share of the points.

It's easy to understand just why Giggs looked so despondent, when you look at the Premier League table.

The result meant United lost further ground on the top four and race for the Champions League places, despite remaining in fifth place.

They are six points behind rivals Manchester City who are in fourth place, and have a weak goal difference of just +10, meaning they are effectively seven points behind their 'noisy neighbours'.
