Thank you!
Thank you for joining me throughout this afternoon's fixture, I hope you enjoyed our live coverage from Old Trafford!
Full-time thoughts
Overall, it would be easy to see a 4-0 scoreline as an absolute battering. 

However, it was two second half minutes which killed off Chelsea, as they turned off and went too far behind.

The Blues looked good overall for the first hour or so, however they seem desperate for someone to put the ball in the net.

Full-time
It's all over at Old Trafford, as Manchester United humble Chelsea 4-0, with two goals from Marcus Rashford, with Anthony Martial and Dan James adding to Chelsea's misery.
91' Ole's from the crowd
It's been a fantastic afternoon for United, and the ole's are out from the crowd for every pass.

Four minutes added on.

85' Mount goes close
With the game at risk at becoming a real embarrassment, Mason Mount skims a shot which is well held by De Gea.

Juan Mata and Mason Greenwood replace Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard.

81' - Goal!
Dan James on his debut! 

Kurt Zouma goes down in the United area and the hosts counter at a scary speed.

Pogba leads the charge, and feeds James as his effort deflects into the net. 4-0!

79' - Things dying down
After those two quick goals, the game has started to die down a little, with United keeping their shape well and denying any clear-cut opportunities for Chelsea.
74' Change for United
Welsh signing Dan James makes his Premier League debut, replacing Pereira.
73' - Chelsea make their last change
Final change for Chelsea, as N'golo Kante returns to the side, replacing Jorginho.
70' - Chelsea come close
Despite the scoreline, Chelsea will continue to give this a go, as Zouma gets his head to a Mount free kick but heads over. 

Emerson also tries his luck but it's comfortable for De Gea.

67' - Goal!
It's all falling apart for Chelsea here.

A long ball over the top from Pogba sets Rashford away, and he gets his second of the afternoon with a cool finish!

65' Goal!
Manchester United waited for the counter attack, and they've executed it perfectly.

Andreas Pereira drills in a ball across the six-yard box, and Martial squeezes the finish under Kepa and United double their lead!

58' - First change for Chelsea
Lampard makes the first move on the sideline, and it's the £56 million pound man Christian Pulisic replaces Ross Barkley.
56' - Another chance for Emerson
Full back to full back for Chelsea, as an Azpilicueta cross goes all the way through to Emerson, who stings the palms of De Gea.
51' - Even start to the second half
Pedro finds himself in space on the edge of the area before seeing an effort deflected behind.

Then, Jesse Lingard drives through the Chelsea side and Jorginho is forced to take a yellow card.

46' - Second half kicks off
We're back underway at Old Trafford!
As for United
United lead and Marcus Rashford took his penalty extremely well, but United have overall been sloppy when going forward.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has looked impressive at Right-Back for the Red Devils, and has kept Ross Barkley relatively quiet.

Half-time talking points
Chelsea have been the better side in this first half, but the defensive inexperience has cost them so far, with Kurt Zouma having a nightmare at the back.

An issue for Chelsea this season might just be finding someone to put the ball in the net, as they've seen countless chances go astray.

Half-time
Half time here, and it's United who find themselves ahead against the run of play at Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford's 18th minute penalty separates the sides, but the Blues have had the better chances, striking the woodwork twice in an entertaining first half.

40' - Emerson hits the post!
Chelsea rolling through the gears now, and a cross-field ball finds Emerson, who rockets a shot against De Gea's near post.

Despite trailing, Lampard must be pleased with what he's seen out here

37' - Zouma is struggling
Kurt Zouma looks out of his depth at the moment at the heart of the Chelsea defence, and picks up a yellow card for a late tackle on the halfway line.

The last thing the Frenchman needed to settle him down.

35' - Better from Barkley
Chelsea attack quickly after Rashford sees a goal disallowed for offside, and Barkley drills an effort wide from the edge of the box.

Fans will perhaps have been expecting more from the pre-season standout performer.

31' - All United now
Chelsea can't get out at the minute, as the hosts are applying a strong press.

Martial fires over from the edge of the area. United looking strong.

25' - The tide's beginning to turn
Chelsea were on top before the goal, but since then it's been all United.

Kepa flaps at a looping cross but Chelsea avoid going two behind.

18' - Goal!
Marcus Rashford slams home the penalty and United lead!
17' - Penalty to United!
Kurt Zouma brings down Marcus Rashford in the area and United have a spot kick!
10' - Great cross from Azpilicueta
Pedro finds Cesar Azpilicueta out wide with a cute header, and he fizzes a ball across the face of goal, but Abraham was a little flat-footed and the chance goes begging.
7' - Chance for Martial!
When you play out from the back there's always a risk, and a Kurt Zouma pass goes astray, leaving Martial a decent chance which he can't convert, as Kepa gets behind it.
4' - Post!
Chelsea have had a decent start here, and the ball falls to Tammy Abraham on the edge of the box, but his powerful strike cracks the post.

 

1' - Kick Off!
We're underway at Old Trafford!

The sides have completed their warm-ups before this massive match-up to round off a thrilling opening weekend in the Premier League.

Solskjaer quotes
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke about facing Frank Lampard on Sunday in their Premier League opener:

"I'm just happy he’s not playing, he’d score goals, wouldn’t he? It’s no different to any other manager we’re not players anymore, we’re managers and we had a managers’ meeting on Wednesday and I spoke to him there."

Lampard quotes
Lampard spoke of their transfer ban on Friday:

“I want to set out as we should do. And when I looked around the room I was looking at top players everywhere, and a big squad full of quality. Can we remain competitive when we are in this position? I believe we can.

“And we just have to accept that and use the challenge of what we’ve got and have absolute belief in what we’ve got because I think with the ban it’s been very easy to write off this squad somewhat."

Ole looking to fix the wheel
Despite an underwhelming transfer window, Manchester United will be looking to build on their sixth placed finish last season, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains in the hot seat at Old Trafford.

The additions of Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka could be key as they'll look to advance on last season's seven clean sheets.
 

Promising Pre-Seasons
Manchester United recorded a 100% record in pre-season, defeating sides such as Inter and AC Milan.

Chelsea started off slow, but conjured up an impressive victory against Barcelona as Lampard elected to try out a number of fringe players.

Team News
The hosts will welcome the inclusion of Harry Maguire as Eric Bailly looks set to miss the first few months of the season with a knee injury.

Chelsea face a race against time to get N'golo Kante back to full fitness, and are still without Antonio Rudiger, leaving an inexperienced set of options in defence for Chelsea

Last time out
Last season, Chelsea failed to beat United in three matches in all competitions. 

Ross Barkley saved a point in a feisty affair at Stamford Bridge, before his side were outclassed in the FA Cup in February.

David De Gea's 

mistake gifted Chelsea a point at Old Trafford, as the blues closed in on their eventual 3rd place finish.
Lampard to bring new life
Chelsea's all-time top scorer Frank Lampard takes charge of his first Premier League game in this one, and brings with him an aura of unpredictability.

After a 3rd placed finish, the loss of Eden Hazard is sure to affect the Blues, who may turn to youth this time round.
