  • 45'

    Chelsea look to pass their way out from the back. It looks rather nervy, with Manchester United seeking to force an error with their high press.

    CHANCE! Mount cuts back for Batshuayi now. This one, he should put away from inside the box. However, he slides his shot just wide of the post!

    A promising counter-attack from Chelsea ends with Pedro colliding with Fred. The Spaniard goes down, but Anthony Taylor declines to award a free-kick within shooting range.

  • 16'

    Batshuayi plays a one-two off Jorginho, but then slips to the amusement of some (presumably Manchester United) supporters.

    Fred and Bruno Fernandes exchange passes before the former has a shot deflected wide for a corner. Frank Lampard uses the opportunity to bring Mount on for Kanté.

    Kanté has picked up an early injury and looks set to be replaced by Mason Mount, who is stripping down and preparing for battle.

  • 9'

    Willian receives the pass from Pedro, cuts inside from the right, and has a crack at goal. He is just unable to curl the ball inside the far post. Chelsea look the more threatening of the two sides.

  • 6'

    Chelsea look comfortable on the ball. A patient build-up ends with James trying one from long range. Good low effort, but just wide of de Gea's right-hand post.

  • 3'

    Pedro wins the ball to put Chelsea on the attack, but Kovacic sees his pass intercepted and it all comes to nothing. Nervy from United early on.

  • 1'
