highlights of the Chelsea vs. Manchester United match
FULL-TIME: Manchester United ties Chelsea 1-1.
90th minute + 4: A goal! Manchester United ties Chelsea 1-1.
Casemiro brings them to parity! He leaps highest in the penalty area, and Kepa stops his looping header with a hand but tips the ball into the post, where it rebounds back down and inches past the goal line! The club’s first goal by Casemiro is a significant one.
90th minute plus three: United is still fighting. Dalot then sends a dangerous ball across the field after Elanga played one into the box that everyone missed.
Jorginho earns a point for the side in the 90th minute by tripping Elanga as he is on the move and receiving a yellow card.
Shaw receives a yellow card in the 89th minute for tripping Azpilicueta. Now frustration is starting to surface. Chelsea is only a short time away from a crucial three points. added six minutes.
Goal at minute 87! Chelsea wins by a single goal. Microsoft United
De Gea makes a mistaken guess, and Jorginho slips the ball past him to the right.
Penalty to Chelsea in the 84th minute! Invading Broja from all sides, McTominay knocks him to the ground. Very awkward on the sub’s part. After protesting, Fred is arrested.
When Elanga makes an errant pass in the 83rd minute, United’s methodical build-up play comes to an end. Chelsea secures a corner at the other end.
80th minute: Ten Hag also takes a chance; McTominay and Elanga take the place of Eriksen and Rashford. If only Ronaldo was available to come on for that game-winning goal at the very last second…
In the 79th minute, Chelsea makes two further substitutions, with Broja and Chukwuemeka replacing Sterling and Loftus-Cheek in Potter’s quest for a spark.
Aubamyeang is out after 75 minutes. It’s Christian Pulisic.
Trevoh Chalobah’s headed effort from a corner in the 74th minute, which beat Fred in the air at the back post, hits the crossbar.
Despite Sterling falling in the penalty area, referee Stuart Attwell signals for play to continue.
67th minute: Both teams are currently lacking a little bit of intensity, and neither is really going for it. The crowd in the stadium is expecting more from the players.
Poor performance from Fred in the 62nd minute. He scoops up the ball on the left side of the box, but when he crosses the box and exits play, he is unable to determine whether it is a cross or a shoot. It didn’t much impress Shaw either.
In the 57th minute, Sterling is played in at the back post but is unable to properly connect with the ball and flubs his lines. In 23 games, he hasn’t scored a goal versus United. Varane seemed to have gone a little too far in the buildup when attempting to halt Aubameyang, and he now appears to be backing off. Victor Lindelof has begun to warm up. We can only hope that the Frenchman’s situation is not so terrible that it prevents him from competing in the World Cup.
In the 52nd minute, Ten Hag makes his first substitution, inserting Fred in place of Sancho. The English winger’s evening was frustrating.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who has been relatively quiet thus far, attempts a long shot in the 48th minute, but it is deflected over for a corner. The corner has no exit.
We have started! Both managers remained unchanged over the break.
Chelsea is 0–0 at the half. Microsoft United
45th minute: Antony wastes a great opportunity at the other end. He attempts to score with a low shot from the right side of the box, but it misses the right post.
43rd minute: Chelsea break quickly, Sterling puts in Aubameyang, but Diogo Dalot moves in to dislodge the Gabon international, and the ball travels past them both. The home team is currently concluding the half as the stronger team.
In the 41st minute, Chilwell lofts the ball into the box, but Aubameyang messes it up by trying to bring it down with his foot instead of going for the header right away.
39th minute: Kovacic instantly gets things moving and moves the ball forward. Aubameyang receives the ball after a deflection, but his shot is feeble and barely misses the target.
35th minute: Mateo Kovacic replaces Cucurella. This appears to be a tactical choice made by Potter, who appears to have switched to a back four. Potter is obviously unimpressed by what he has seen thus far.
In the 34th minute, Rashford advances on Silva but takes the shot early, forcing Kepa to make a fine save. Later, Sancho fires a shot from the left side, but Kepa successfully blocks it. United raps on the front door.
*Video accessible in the UK:
Antony receives a warning in the 32nd minute for a late challenge on Jorginho.
28th minute: United has a chance! When Rashford is played into the area, Kepa is out to meet him and makes the stop with his thigh before he has a chance to fire.
26th minute: Kepa makes a mistake in concentration and concedes a corner, but fortunately for him, Chelsea clears their lines and United are unable to capitalise.
In the 23rd minute, Mason Mount gives Antony a dangerous free kick. Christian Eriksen and Marcus Rashford prepare to take it, but the former drills it right at the wall.
19th minute: United are in control of the ball, and pockets of space are opening up in the final third as a result of Bruno Fernandes’ movement and search for a game-winning pass, but they are still unable to get into any serious danger zones just yet.
15th minute: Raphael Varane stops a critical cross at the other end that Aubameyang was attempting to touch in from six yards out.
13th minute: Kepa makes the game’s first save. The Spanish goalkeeper does well to dive to his right and make the stop after Antony finds some space just outside the box and curls a shot.
In the tenth minute, Luke Shaw, who is open on the left side of the field, hammers a low shot from distance but it misses the far post.
8th minute: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finds himself in a good position down the left wing, but his cross is well overhit and goes out for a throw-in since there isn’t much action in the box.
7th minute: Since joining United, Antony has scored three goals in five Premier League games, but he’ll have his job cut out for him today getting past Ben Chilwell and Marc Cucurella. This time, the former silences the Brazilian.
3rd minute: United has made a couple errant passes while under siege from Chelsea. At Stamford Bridge, the home crowd is undoubtedly ready for it.
We have started!
Three minutes remain till the start of the game. a few minutes from the action.
Ten minutes before kickoff, Potter has chosen to keep Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal once more. And who can blame him? From the sidelines, Edouard Mendy has only observed as the Spaniard has recorded five straight clean sheets. Will this evening’s attack by United put an end to that?
20 minutes before kickoff: The news headlines and Ten Hag’s pre-game questions are still dominated by discussion of Ronaldo’s exclusion. But spare a thought for Fred, who put on a terrific performance and scored last time out but was benched in favour of the returning Eriksen.
“Ronaldo has eclipsed the Spurs victory for the outside world, but not for us. Our entire attention is on this game, and the players are ready and committed to producing a result, adds Ten Hag.
“The team and I are pleased with our performance. Cris is obviously a problem since he’s a key player in the dressing room, but they’re professional and you can tell they enjoy practising.
“Fred and Eriksen are obviously two distinct players, yet they play the same position. In the first few games of the season, Christian might have been our best player.
Just before kickoff: Erling Haaland scored two more goals as Manchester City thrashed Brighton 3-1 in today’s afternoon match. They now occupy the runner-up spot, one point behind leaders Arsenal.

There have been 25 draws in Premier League games, the most of any matchup between Chelsea and Manchester United.
But given the excellent run of both teams—Chelsea has gone seven games unbeaten, while United has won three of its past four away games in the Premier League—we’re hoping this is anything but a routine 0-0 draw.
The teams have arrived 60 minutes before kickoff!
The Blues made four changes from the midweek 0-0 draw with Brentford.
Kai Havertz, Armando Broja, Conor Gallagher, and Kalidou Koulibaly are replaced by Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell, Raheem Sterling, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang; the latter is not included in the team.
Fred is replaced by Christian Eriksen as the lone change from United’s team that defeated Tottenham.
90 minutes before kickoff: Well, Cristiano Ronaldo, a player who won’t even participate, is already the main topic of discussion from today. Given that the Portuguese declined to enter as a late substitute in the team’s 2-0 victory over Tottenham the previous time around, Ten Hag decided not to select him in his squad for today’s game. Both Ten Hag and Ronaldo have spoken about the incident. Find out what was spoken in this precise phrase.
