20 Oct 2018

With the return of the Premier League, what a match to kick start the return of domestic football. A game of two-halves with Chelsea dominating the first stanza and United controlling things in the second.

20 Oct 2018

FULL-TIME: Chelsea 2-2 Manchester United

20 Oct 2018

Super-sub Barkley buries a scuffle of chances and secures a point for the Blues.

96' GOAL! GOAL! GOAL!

20 Oct 2018

95' Pereira receives a yellow card now ...

20 Oct 2018

92' Giroud appeals for a penalty as Lindelof puts in a challenge ... but the referee issues a goal kick.

20 Oct 2018

90' SIX minutes of additional time added on

20 Oct 2018

89' Matic dispatching Hazard off the ball and cheers from the United corner ...

20 Oct 2018

86' Very evident that United have been pressing Chelsea in the second-half. Chelsea have been poor on the defensive front. The introduction of Pedro and Barkley might change things slightly. 

20 Oct 2018

85' Big five minutes for both sides here now ...

20 Oct 2018

84' Sanchez finally comes on. Rashford off.

20 Oct 2018

83' Martial off for Pereira

20 Oct 2018

75' Mourinho finally makes a change ... Herrera on, Mata off

20 Oct 2018

74' Willian comes off with Pedro replacing the Brazilian

20 Oct 2018

Luiz misjudges the ball on the touchline and it allows Mata to advance towards the right wing. He plays the ball inside for Rashford, who then picks out Martial in the box. The Frenchman takes a touch to set up a shot with his right and finds the target. 

20 Oct 2018

73' GOAL! GOAL! GOAL! 

20 Oct 2018

71' CHANCE! A rare on target strike by Kante and De Gea leaps and falls towards the effort and palms it away. 

Great strike but perfectly matched by the United gloveman.

20 Oct 2018

Sarri strikes first with the substitutes here ... Mourinho you're next.

20 Oct 2018

69' Barkley comes on for Kovacic 

20 Oct 2018

66' CHANCE! Woah what a cross from Willian who finds Luiz and the Brazilians' faintest of touches sees his effort go narrowly wide.

20 Oct 2018

64' United giving the ball away easily here as Smalling looks to play from deep. Maybe play the easy pass first? Just a simple suggestion.

20 Oct 2018

61' Hazard and Willian now dictating things now as they look to tag team Smalling and Young ... The United two come out on top... a rare sight indeed

20 Oct 2018

58' SHOT! United have woken up. The ball is played into Pogba in midfield and he produces a good turn before striking at goal, but it goes a few yards wide of the target.

20 Oct 2018

United's first real threat at holding the ball before a host of efforts at goal with Kepa saving Mata's chance the ball eventually finds its way to Martial and the Frenchman makes no mistake with putting it in the back of the net.

GAME ON!

20 Oct 2018

54' GOAL! GOAL! GOAL!

20 Oct 2018

51' Exquisite from Hazard playing in David Luiz and the Brazilian has acres of space and Smalling comes in to save the day with putting in a leg seconds before Luiz pulls the trigger.

20 Oct 2018

47' Chelsea looking to continue where they left off in the first half as Jorginho dummies Matic and sees the space and darts forward and Morata is running into space between Young and Smalling and the midfielder puts in perfect through ball only for De Gea to palm the strikers shot dead in its tracks.

20 Oct 2018

45' Second-half is underway ...

No changes from either side

20 Oct 2018

To sum up the first-half ... Chelsea simply superb in holding the ball and creating chances while Manchester United looked dead waiting to counter attack ...

20 Oct 2018

47' HALF-TIME!

20 Oct 2018

44' United finally have space to attack and Pogba free down the left. He reaches the byline but his pull back finds Azpilicueta who clears the ball.

20 Oct 2018

42' What a sweet pass from Jorginho but Willian just too late to catch it with his right foot.

20 Oct 2018

40' Morata is found with a short pass by Hazard and attempts to shoot from a few yards outside of the box, but he slices the effort well wide.

20 Oct 2018

38' Man United are still yet to have a shot this afternoon and have simply been second best so far. As long as they deficit remains at one they will feel like they're still in it, however, but the visitors will need to vastly improve.

20 Oct 2018

35' Another yellow card and this time it's for Hazard. Alonso was caught out of position which allowed Rashford to burst down the right flank, only for Hazard to cynically bring him down.

20 Oct 2018

32' CHANCE! The Man United defence goes to sleep and it allows Alonso to drift into open space on the edge of the area where he's found by Rudiger. A heavy touch from the Spaniard lets him down, however, as it allows De Gea to come out and collect.

20 Oct 2018

30' Rudiger is now booked for a not too dissimilar attempt at a challenge on Pogba as he goes through the back of the Frenchman when going up for a header in midfield.

20 Oct 2018

28' Luiz brings Rashford down in Chelsea's penalty area, who looks to pull the trigger but appeals for penalty but Mike Dean waves goalkick ...

20 Oct 2018

26' After the many fouls from Young on Hazard the referee finally issues the United captain with a yellow card ...

20 Oct 2018

23' United looking stunned now and slightly out of shape ...

20 Oct 2018

20 Oct 2018

Willian has now provided nine Premier League assists since the start of last season, more than any other Chelsea player.

20 Oct 2018

Pogba clearly not happy with his very own poor defending here. Jumping around in disappointment.

20 Oct 2018

Poor marking and defending from Pogba sees Rudiger find space and heads home Chelsea's opening goal.

20 Oct 2018

20' GOAL! GOAL! GOAL!

20 Oct 2018

Hazard getting the better of Young on two occasions now. How long will it take for the Belgian seriously starts getting goals?
