Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
Manchester United are next in action against RB Leipzig on Wednesday in their Champions League match at Old Trafford. Chelsea are also in Champions League action on the same day against Krasnodar on the road.
Manchester United and Cheslea play out a goalless draw in their Premier League clash at Old Trafford. It was a game of few chances, but the best ones fell to Marcus Rashford. He was denied twice by Edouard Mendy as the Chelsea keeper produced two excellent saves, including one in stoppage time to earn the Blues share of the spoils. Neither side deserved the three points, making the draw a fair result on a wet Saturday evening in Manchester.
90' + 4' Wan-Bissaka attempts to lift a cross into the box from the right flank towards Cavani. However, James is there to repel the danger with a clearing header.
90' + 3' Kante has space and time on the edge of the box, but his flick towards Ziyech is cut out by Fred.
90' + 1' SAVE! Mendy denies Rashford with a spectacular save. The striker latches on to a loose ball on the edge of the box and he lines up a curling strike towards the bottom-right corner. It looks destined for the back of the before Mendy sticks out a hand to turn it past the post.

90' Silva is in the right place at the right time once more to head away Fernandes' cross from the lurking presence of Cavani at the back post.

87' WIDE! United clear the delivery from Ziyech as far as Jorginho on the edge of the box. However, the Italy international slices his volley wide of the right post.
86' Chelsea up the ante as James tries to tee up Abraham in the box, forcing Fred to clear over his own bar. 
85' Ziyech takes the corner, but fails to beat the first man with his delivery. Mount does well for his team to win a free-kick for a challenge by Greenwood.
85' James and Azpilicueta combine down the right flank, and the latter wins a corner off the legs of Shaw.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have concerns about an injury that Rashford picked up towards the end of the first half. He got kicked on the boot by Thiago Silva and was walking gingerly. Losing the forward would be a major blow for the hosts.
It's goalless at the break between Manchester United and Chelsea in their Premier League clash at Old Trafford. The Blues were edging the first half until the latter stages when the home side came alive.

Manchester United are looking to win three consecutive top-flight meetings against Chelsea for the first time since September 1965 under Matt Busby.
Lampard has made only one change to his side from their draw against Sevilla during the week. Mount drops out of the line-up to the bench and is replaced by Azpilicueta, allowing the Blues to shore up their backline with a three-man unit. Havertz, Werner and Pulisic start in the final third.
Solskjaer recalls Maguire into the fold this evening in one of three changes to the side that beat PSG. The centre-back starts alongside Lindelof in the backline in place of Tuanzebe, who drops to the bench. James and Mata also get the nod in the middle of the park in place of Alex Telles and the suspended Anthony Martial. Cavani starts on the bench for the Red Devils alongside Pogba and Greenwood.

CHELSEA (3-4-3): Edouard Mendy; Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Kurt Zouma; Reece James, Jorginho, N'Golo Kante, Ben Chilwell; Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner.
MANCHESTER UNITED SUBS: Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood, Dean Henderson, Nemanja Matic, Donny van de Beek, Axel Tuanzebe.

Chelsea played out a goalless draw against Sevilla in their Champions League opener. The Blues claimed a much-needed clean sheet after their collapse against Southampton last time out in the Premier League. Frank Lampard's men are still under pressure, having endured an average start to the season amid a summer of heavy spending in the transfer market. Chelsea need a result against one of the elite to prove a point.
Manchester United earned a massive win over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League during the week courtesy of a late strike from Marcus Rashford. The Red Devils needed to build on the momentum of their 4-1 win over Newcastle United, and now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men can target a third win on the bounce by taking the scalp of the Blues to lift them up the Premier League table.
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between Manchester United and Chelsea at Old Trafford.
