HALF-TIME: Manchester United 1-0.
What a first half by Man United as they looked the stronger of the two sides.
Full-time at Old Trafford and the Reds go marching on! This is an absolutely massive result for not only United but Spurs as well! Chelsea remain four points clear but Conte won't rest on his laurels! Mourinho 2-0 Conte in this tactical battle!
Ibrahimovic is shown a yellow-card. The cards are really starting to tot up!
Substitution for United as Fosu-Mensah comes on for Young to make his second appearance of the season in the Premier League!
Yellow-card for Chelsea! Fabregas comes in extremely late on Carrick!
Substitution for Chelsea as Zouma is replace by Loftus-Cheek!
Substitution for United and it's their danger-man, Ibrahimovic, who comes on to replace Rashford! The youngster gets a mammoth round of applause as he leaves the field!
Chelsea have yet to have a shot on target today and De Gea has been nothing more than a spectator but they seem to be coming into this match and a goal looks inevitable if United continue to sit back!
Yellow-card for Rojo! He brings down Costa, yet again, despite the Spaniard probably not getting onto the final ball.
Yellow-card for United! Herrera is shown the card for persistent fouling - particularly on Hazard!
Substitution for Chelsea! Willian comes on to replace Matic! That is a very, very attacking change!
Chance for Chelsea! The Blues' see a corner cleared out which eventually falls to the feet of Pedro on the right-flank! The Spaniard cuts in on his left-foot but his shot is deflected wide!
Chance for United! Matic is lazy in possession and ends up being dispossessed! The ball falls to the feet of Rashford who takes aim and fires his 20 yard strike against the side-netting!
Substitution for United! Carrick comes on to replace Lingard! Carrick should give this young United side some much needed experience as we enter the last 30 minutes!
Substitution for Chelsea! Moses is replaced by Fabregas - it seems as though Chelsea will be playing a back four!
United lead 2-0! Herrera has scored for The Red Devils! Young does brilliantly to break into the box and lay a delicate pass into the path of Herrera and the Spaniard fires his shot at goal! The ball takes a wicked deflection and sails past Begovic!
Yellow-card for Chelsea! Cahill is shown the card for a high boot!
The second-half has kicked off to the roar of the home faithful!
Half-time at Old Trafford and it has been an enthralling affair! The match has absolutely lived up to it's hype and the crowd are really loving it! Mourinho will be happy to go into the half with the score at 1-0!
The Fourth Official has indicated a minimum of two minutes of additional time in the first-half!
Rojo and Costa collide again in the United penalty-area but a foul was given prior to that! The two men fall to the floor and it seems as though Rojo hits out at him afterwards - he may be punished by The FA after the match!
Chance for Chelsea! A rare foray forward leads to a free-kick on Hazard! The ball is whipped in from the right flank by the man who was fouled but there was a push in the box and the referee gives United the free-kick now!
Chance for United! Rashford, Pogba and Valencia hold the ball fantastically near the right corner flag! Pogba then finds Young on the edge of the area but the United man skews his shot wide!
Bailly and Rojo have continued an ongoing battle with Costa! The Argentine and Ivorian have hacked down the Spaniard on every occasion and it seems as though it is only a matter of time until a card is shown!
Chance for United! Kante brings down Lingard and the referee has given United the free-kick! Rashford stands over it, right of center, and whips a cross into the box but Chelsea are able to deal with it and clear the ball from danger!
Old Trafford is absolutely rocking as United begin to flex their attacking muscles! Herrera has been central to all that has been good for The Red Devils today!
Chance for United! Lingard plays in Young down the left-flank and delivers a lovely deep ball but Rashford can't get on the end of it! So, so close for United!
Bailly is down injured for United following a push from Diego Costa! Referee, Robery Madley, is having none of it and the Ivorian has recovered and is okay to continue!
Goal for United! The youngster Rashford has the goal! Herrera plays a delicious through-ball around Luiz and the pacey Englishman fires past Begovic from 12 yards out!
Change to the starting line-ups! Zouma comes in to replace Marcos Alonso who sustained an injury in the warm-up! Azpilicueta moves to left-back and the Frenchman slots into his natural center-back role!
The title challengers, Chelsea, have started brightest with Matic and Kante controlling the game from the center of the park!
Robert Madley gets us underway in this highly anticipated affair!
Mourinho has sent out a weaker side today in the wake of a Europa League clash coming up! Ibrahimovic is rested and Rashford gets a start in this all important match!
Begovic, Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill, Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso, Pedro, Diego Costa, Hazard.
United XI: De Gea, Valencia, Bailly, Rojo, Darmian, Fellaini, Herrera, Young, Pogba, Lingard, Rashford.
