  • A game that never really hit the heights you would expect from these two outstanding sides, but was ultimately settled by two moments of sheer class. First, there was Demba Ba's sublime volley that gave Chelsea the lead before Blues keeper Petr Cech made a miraculous one-handed save to keep out a header from United striker Javier Hernandez. Two moments that lit up an otherwise low-key encounter.

  • Ba is replaced by Fernando Torres.

  • Great cross from Young is met by Van Persie but he heads over from 10 yards.

  • Oscar is replaced by Moses and we will have four minutes of added time

  • Oscar is booked for a foul on Young.

  • Mata is booked for a foul on Valencia.

  • Chelsea counter and Mata finds space on the edge of the box but his shot is saved.

  • We almost get one as Young finds the run of Evra whose low cross is met by Van Persie who blazes the ball over from 12 yards.

  • There are plenty of weary legs on the field now, but we are now entering the closing stages so will there be a late twist?

  • Ba uses his strength to ease Smalling off the ball in the box and get in a shot, but he is harshly penalised for a foul.

  • A delay in play with two balls on the field as De Gea tries to take a goalkick.

  • Mata again drives at the United defence and lays it off to Hazard. He then finds Oscar who fires wide from the edge of the box.

  • United's huge following is urging their side forward, but in truth they have created very little in the final third.

  • Chances at both ends with Van Persie unable to get a header on target, while Chelsea go downfield and Mata fires wide from the edge of the box.

  • Mata powers his way to the edge of the United box and goes down as he is about to shoot, but referee Dowd signals play on.

  • United's final change sees Ashley Young on for Welbeck.

  • Mikel is grateful to volley the ball to safety as Evra got in a dangerous cross.

  • Mata and Hazard link on the edge of the box with Jones getting a foot in, but it breaks to Mata who blasts wide.

  • Azpilicueta is booked for a foul on Welbeck.

  • Mikel wins an important header for the hosts on the edge of his own box before Welbeck is penalised for a foul which will relieve the pressure.
