Juan Mata rued a missed opportunity as Manchester United let victory slip at Chelsea.

The former Chelsea playmaker praised United's attacking intent, but was frustrated as Diego Costa's stoppage-time goal cancelled out Jesse Lingard's opener.

"I want to highlight the team's image," Mata wrote on his blog. "From the first minute we went for the victory and played good football, but unfortunately we let slip two points in the last few moments.

"It's a pity. It would have been a very important step in this second half of the Premiership, but Chelsea pushed hard (as expected) to at least tie the game and they finally scored their goal. We are improving our game lately, and I'm sure this is the way to get a series of good results in the next few weeks."
