Full time: Chelsea 1 - 1 Manchester United

Despite a dominant performance, it was Manchester United who got their noses ahead in the 50th minute after Jadon Sancho pounced on Jorginho error.

The Italian got redemption 19 minutes later however, after Aaron Wan-Bissaka brought down Thiago Silva in the box, allowing Jorginho to level the scoring.

Late chances came to Fred and Rudiger but neither could capitalise, with the visitors likely the happier of the two sides to share the spoils.

17:182 months ago

Half time: Chelsea 0 - 0 Manchester United

Chelsea have dominated the ball across the first 45 minutes and could've been a goal or two up in the first ten minutes if it wasn't for De Gea's heroics.

Chances have been few and far between since the opening period, but Chelsea have been by far the superior side.

United have shown a couple of glimpses of a dangerous counter-attack in the last five minutes, but the visitors have failed to test Mendy in goal.

Another clean sheet for Manchester United?

Manchester United: Analysis

The visitors will always have the potential to come up with a moment of individual brilliance but that will probably be required if they are to break down a Chelsea side that have shipped just four goals in 12 Premier League matches
14:142 months ago

Chelsea: Analysis

The hosts will smell blood on Sunday when they come up against the fourth-worst defence in the Premier League (averaging 1.78 xGA per game) and it's almost impossible to see United keeping a clean sheet with Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly marshalling the defence.
