Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

20 Oct 15:33
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 15:31
FULL-TIME: Chelsea 2-2 Manchester United
20 Oct 15:29
Super-sub Barkley buries a scuffle of chances and secures a point for the Blues.
20 Oct 15:24
96' GOAL! GOAL! GOAL!
20 Oct 15:24
95' Pereira receives a yellow card now ...
20 Oct 15:21
92' Giroud appeals for a penalty as Lindelof puts in a challenge ... but the referee issues a goal kick.
20 Oct 15:19
90' SIX minutes of additional time added on
20 Oct 15:17
89' Matic dispatching Hazard off the ball and cheers from the United corner ...
20 Oct 15:14
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 15:12
85' Big five minutes for both sides here now ...
20 Oct 15:12
84' Sanchez finally comes on. Rashford off.
20 Oct 15:11
83' Martial off for Pereira
20 Oct 15:06
75' Mourinho finally makes a change ... Herrera on, Mata off
20 Oct 15:04
74' Willian comes off with Pedro replacing the Brazilian
20 Oct 15:03
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 15:02
73' GOAL! GOAL! GOAL! 
20 Oct 15:00

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 14:58
Sarri strikes first with the substitutes here ... Mourinho you're next.
20 Oct 14:57
69' Barkley comes on for Kovacic 
20 Oct 14:56
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 14:53
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 14:51
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 14:49
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 14:45

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 14:42
54' GOAL! GOAL! GOAL!
20 Oct 14:40
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 14:36
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 14:34

45' Second-half is underway ...

No changes from either side

20 Oct 14:32
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 14:21
47' HALF-TIME!
20 Oct 14:20
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 14:15
42' What a sweet pass from Jorginho but Willian just too late to catch it with his right foot.
20 Oct 14:14
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 14:11
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 14:10
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 14:08
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 14:05
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 14:05
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 14:00
26' After the many fouls from Young on Hazard the referee finally issues the United captain with a yellow card ...
20 Oct 13:59
23' United looking stunned now and slightly out of shape ...
20 Oct 13:58
20 Oct 13:58
Willian has now provided nine Premier League assists since the start of last season, more than any other Chelsea player.
20 Oct 13:55
Pogba clearly not happy with his very own poor defending here. Jumping around in disappointment.
20 Oct 13:55
Poor marking and defending from Pogba sees Rudiger find space and heads home Chelsea's opening goal.
20 Oct 13:51
20' GOAL! GOAL! GOAL!
20 Oct 13:51
Hazard getting the better of Young on two occasions now. How long will it take for the Belgian seriously starts getting goals? 
 
  • 90'

    Full time at Stamford Bridge and it ends with the score at 2-2. Chelsea took the early lead before a brilliant comeback from the visitors, only for Barkley to score a late equaliser at the death.

  • 90'

    GOAL! Chelsea get a point at the death! Luiz was found with a cross towards the far post and saw his header strike the post before Rudiger saw his effort on goal saved by De Gea, only for Barkley to score from close range. 2-2.

  • 90'

    Another yellow card goes the way of the visitors as it's another substitute, Pereira, that is booked by the referee.

  • 90'

    Sanchez is the latest to into the referees book as he receives a yellow card for a poor challenge.

  • 90'

    Chelsea move down the left flank before Hazard plays Pedro into the box. He crosses towards the near post for Giroud, but the Frenchman isn't able to direct the ball goalwards under pressure from Lindelof.

  • 90'

    SHOT! Chelsea continue to press for a late goal. They move the ball from left to right before it reaches Azpilicueta on the edge of the United box. The Spaniard attempts to strike at goal, but his effort flies well over De Gea's goal.

  • 86'

    Chelsea are pressing for an equaliser and it's resulted in the game opening up significantly in the latter stages. Can Man United hold on or will the Blues be able to come back and snatch a late goal?

  • 85'

    Another change for the visitors now as Rashford is replaced by Sanchez.

  • 84'

    Substitution for Man United as Pereira comes on to replace Martial.

  • 81'

    CLOSE! Lukaku flicks the ball on for Herrera and the Spaniard is seemingly in on goal, but by the time he gets to the edge of the Chelsea box Kepa is there to meet him and he isn't able to get a solid shot away.

  • 80'

    Substitution for Chelsea as Morata is replaced by Giroud.

  • 78'

    Chelsea win a free kick in midfield as Pogba is adjudged to have fouled Morata. Hazard finds Alonso with a lofted ball towards the far post which he attempts to play back into the middle, but he can only play it out for a goal kick.

  • 75'

    Changes from both sides now as Pedro comes on to replace Willian for the hosts, whilst Mata is replaced by Herrera for the visitors.

  • 73'

    GOAL! 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 and the Frenchman scores beautifully into the bottom corner. 1-2.

  • 72'

    SAVE! Chelsea break forward through Hazard before Kante is found in space on the edge of the area. He strikes powerfully towards the left bottom corner, but he's denied by a strong save from De Gea.

  • 69'

    The first change of the game comes from the home side as Barkley comes on to replace Kovacic.

  • 67'

    The referee has the yellow card out once more as Mata goes into the book for a reckless challenge on Azpilicueta.

  • 66'

    CHANCE! Willian is brought down by Shaw on the right side of midfield. He delivers the free kick into the box and finds an unmarked Luiz, but the header on goal goes inches wide of the far post.

  • 62'

    Chelsea have come straight back at United with a succession of corners, but the visitors deal with the pressure well in order to clear and get out from the back.

  • 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.

  • 55'

    GOAL! Man United attack in numbers. The ball is played into the box before falling to Mata, who sees his shot saved by Kepa. Chelsea then fail to clear and the ball drops to Martial on the edge of the six yard box and he slots it home. 1-1.

  • 52'

    Close for Chelsea after some good interplay from Luiz and Hazard on the edge of the area saw the Brazilian have a shot blocked away for a corner.

  • 50'

    SHOT! Hazard dribbles down the left side of the United box before looking to strike at goal from a tight angle, but it's another easy save for De Gea to make.

  • 48'

    CHANCE! Jorginho produces a bursting run through midfield before playing a neat pass for Morata on the edge of the area. The Spaniard brings the ball in well before turning and shooting, but it lacks the power needed to trouble De Gea.

  • 46'

    We're back underway for the second half!

  • 45'

    Half time at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea go into the break with a 1-0 lead after a Rudiger header from a Willian corner. The hosts are deserving of their lead having controlled the game for most, if not all, of the half.

  • 43'

    Chelsea are passing the ball for fun inside the visitors' third of the pitch. They eventually look to get the ball into the box with a Alonso cross, but it's headed away by Lindelof before Chelsea start again. Man United are struggling to get out.

  • 40'

    SHOT! 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 of the target.

  • 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.

  • 35'

    The free kick is meekly played into the box by Mata and Chelsea are able to clear easily through a header away from Morata.

  • 34'

    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.

  • 31'

    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.

  • 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.

  • 27'

    Young is the second player to get booked this afternoon for a blatant foul from behind on Hazard in midfield.

  • 25'

    Man United have struggled to respond after going down with all of the attacking play coming the way of the home side. It's beginning to look like a very tough task for the Red Devils this afternoon.

  • 21'

    GOAL! Chelsea take the lead. A corner from Willian is drilled towards the penalty spot which Rudiger meets after getting away from Pogba and he heads powerfully past De Gea. 1-0.

  • 17'

    WIDE! The ball is played towards the far post where Smalling is able to head it back into the middle before Chelsea clear. It goes as far as Shaw who delivers into the box, but Lukaku can't quite head the ball on target.

  • 16'

    Suddenly Man United are pressing higher up to put pressure on the Chelsea defenders on the ball. It results in Matic winning the ball before being fouled by Kovacic in a promising position to get the ball into the box.

  • 14'

    The first yellow card is out early on as Matic is booked for a cynical foul, once again on Hazard.

  • 11'

    CHANCE! Chelsea win a free kick on the edge of the area after Hazard was brought down by Matic. Willian is the man that strikes at goal for Chelsea, but the chance is wasted as he blazes a shot high and wide of the target.

  • 8'

    Chelsea have dominated possession in the opening minutes of the game with Man United happy to sit off of the hosts. It's resulted in the visitors offering little going forward thus far with Chelsea snuffing out any potential counterattack with ease.

  • 5'

    Willian shows his pace down the left as he skips past Shaw before drilling a low cross into the box. It's deflected and finds its way to Kovacic on the edge of the area, but he can't quite make the right connection with a first-time effort at goal.

  • 3'

    Man United win a corner early on which Mata delivers into the box. The delivery is poor, however, as it doesn't get past the near post and Chelsea head away easily.

  • 1'

    We're underway at Stamford Bridge!

  • 0'

    Man United also make two changes to the side that started against Newcastle last time out. Bailly, after being replaced after 19 minutes in that game, is dropped to the bench with Lindelof coming in whilst Mata replaces McTominay to face his former side.

  • 0'

    Chelsea make two changes to the side that ran out in their comfortable win against Southampton last time out. Kovacic is given a start with Barkley dropping to the bench, whilst Morata has been chosen to lead the line with Giroud dropping to the bench.
