Good afternoon and welcome to our coverage of today's Premier League clash between English giants Chelsea and Manchester United, live from Stamford Bridge.
0'
With both sides looking to keep up the pace set by leaders Manchester City, a win in this Super Sunday showdown is crucial.
0'
A win for the visitors would see them move seven above the Blues, however, everyone is expected Mourinho to park the bus against his former club. Surely a 0-0 draw is too obvious?
0'
Man United XI: De Gea, Bailly, Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Young, Herrera, Matic, Mkhitaryan, Lukaku, Rashford. Substitutes: Romero, Martial, Lingard, Blind, Fellaini, Darmian, McTominay.
0'
Chelsea XI: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Cahill, Zappacosta, Bakayoko, Fabregas, Alonso, Kante, Morata, Hazard. Substitutes: Caballero, Rudiger, Drinkwater, Pedro, Willian, Batshuayi, Ampadu.
0'
Jesse Lingard and Maroaune Fellaini recover in time to take their place on the United bench. Chelsea make three changes as N'Golo Kante returns to the set up.
0'
Ahead of kick-off, both sides observe a minute's silence as a mark of respect to those who lost their lives during armed conflict.
1'
KICK OFF: Formalities out the way, we're kicked off at the Bridge. Let's go!
2'
Smalling clatters into the back of Morata on the edge of the United area and Chelsea have an early free-kick in front of the traveling fans. It's rolled short to Kante, who hesitates before getting a shot away, which De Gea saves comfortably.
5'
A rarity! Antonio Valencia has just been penalised for a foul throw, as United hand possession back to Chelsea.
7'
DISALLOWED GOAL! Chelsea have the ball in the back of the net as Morata forces Jones fire past his own 'keeper, but referee Taylor penalises the Spaniard for a foul.
9'
Chance! United go right up the other end so nearly take the lead themselves as Rashford gets on the end of Young's looping cross, but the youngster can only guide his header onto the roof of the net.
11'
It's end-to-end stuff as Chelsea pile forward on a counter of their own, with Hazard leading the charge. United eventually get bodies back to break up the attack.
13'
Chance! Chelsea building up a real head of steam here as Bakayoko picks up the ball and charges at the United defence. They stand off him and invite him to shoot, which he does, but his bobbling effort drifts inches wide.
16'
Chance! The visitors work the ball up to Lukaku on the edge of the Chelsea area, he spins and releases a shot which draws Courtois into a decent save low to his right. Good save.
18'
Chelsea go right up the other end and create another chance as the ball is laid into Bakayoko's path, but a last-gasp block from Herrera saves the day for United.
23'
Rashford floats a free-kick into the Chelsea area which Matic tries to get on the end of, but Cahill halts his progress as Courtois gathers.
23'
Booking: Moments earlier Bakayoko did indeed go into the referee's book after clattering into the back of Jones.
28'
Alonso whips a low cross into the United area which Bailly takes an age to clear. Bakayoko bears down on him, but the Ivorian hacks the ball to safety in the nick of time.
32'
Fabregas finds Moraata on the edge of the United area with an incisive pass, but the Spaniard's finish is not quite up to the same standard as De Gea comfortably saves his attempt on goal.
35'
United continue to chase shadows around Chelsea's midfielders, who are growing in confidence with every passing minute.
40'
Chance! Another gilt-edged opportunity passes Chelsea by as Christensen heads Fabregas' corner over the bar from six yards out.
43'
Matic does a sterling job in front of his back three, shepherding Hazard away from the penalty area and forcing him to play the ball out wide, as Chelsea's momentum evaporates.
45'
HALF TIME: We're level at the break with neither side managing to break the deadlock, although it's been an entertaining first period. Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United.
46'
SECOND HALF: We're back underway for the second period.
48'
Chelsea play keep ball for a minute or so, probing for a way through the United defence. With no avenue to get forward, Morata takes matters into his own, but fires wide on the turn.
49'
Booking: Jones is the first United player in the book for a rash lunge on Hazard.
51'
Booking: United clear the resulting free-kick at the first man but they are in trouble soon after as Herrera treads on Hazard and picks up a booking.
55'
GOAL! Morata breaks the deadlock! Azpilicueta's deep cross falls perfect for the Spaniard's who directs a fine looping header beyond De Gea. Chelsea 1-0 Man United.
58'
Rashford breaks forward as United look for an instant response, but he overruns the ball out of play for a goal kick, much to the delight of the Chelsea faithful in The Shed End
62'
Substitution: Double change for United as Martial and Fellaini replace Mkhitaryan and Jones. It appears United are reverting back to a back four, after starting the game with three centre-backs.
65'
Substitution: First change for Chelsea as Zappacosta departs for Rudiger.
69'
Chance! Again Fellaini is the target at the United corner, and his knock down falls for Herrera, who drills an effort wide.
71'
Booking: Fellaini sees yellow for appearing to catch Morata with a flailing arm.
75'
Chance! Another Chelsea chance goes begging as Hazard races through on goal only to see De Gea get everything behind his shot. Will Chelsea live to rue these missed opportunities?
79'
Substitution: United's third and final change sees Lingard replace Young, while Drinkwater come son for Fabregas for Chelsea.
80'
Chance! Chelsea come within inches of doubling their lead as Rudiger's cross flashes across the face of goal. Not sure he meant to find the target but he wouldn't have been complaining if he had!
84'
Chance! Martial scampers clear into the area before finding Rashford, whose whipped cross so nearly lands on the head of Fellaini at the back post.
87'
Chance! United mount a late rally as Fellaini knocks the ball into the path of Rashford, whose left-footed volley flashes inches wide.
88'
Substitution: Third and final change for Chelsea as Hazard makes way for Willian.
88'
Chance! Rashford wins the ball in the air on the edge of the Chelsea area, heading towards goal where Lukaku rises, but Courtois is quick off his line to ease the danger in an instant.
