90+4'- It's full time at Old Trafford as Chelsea claim a famous win over Manchester United thanks to a late Juan Mata strike.
The Blues were marginally the better side as Sir Alex Ferguson's side lacked an end product in the final third.
Thanks for joining me, and make sure to stay tuned to Bleacher Report for all the fallout from this and the other games taking place around Europe today.
90+3'- Ryan Giggs chips in a free kick that causes the Chelsea back line no worry.
This win would all but guarantee that Rafa Benitez's side will play Champions League football next term. Either Arsenal or Tottenham will miss out.
90+1'- Four minutes to be added on here as ten-man United try desperately to score an equaliser.
A debatable decision from Howard Webb who could have been lenient in that situation.
89'- Rafael has been sent off for kicking out at David Luiz as tempers come to the boil at Old Trafford.
Ugly scenes as the Blues player feigns injury and Ashley Cole waves an imaginary card. Rafael only has himself to blame for losing his head.
87'- GOAL CHELSEA!
Chelsea break quickly, the ball eventually being fed out to Juan Mata, whose shot takes a slight deflection off Nemanja Vidic, nestling in the bottom corner of Anders Lindegaard's goal.
Massive for the Blues.
85'- David Luiz picks up a booking for overreacting following United winning a throw near the halfway line. What is he thinking?
Five minutes to play. Both teams could yet win it, but based on the way the game has gone, Chelsea would be the more likely.
83'- ...but David Luiz fires his effort wide of goal. Disappointing from the man so adept at striking a football from range.
82'- Patrice Evra pushes Juan Mata on the edge of the United box, giving the Blues great position to have a crack on goal...
81'- Rafael gets to the byline after some nice work by Ryan Giggs. His pull-back across goal is almost inadvertently turned in by Ivanovic.
Phil Jones then goes into the referee's book for a rather blatant body check on Ramires.
79'- A Juan Mata corner picks out a leaping Branislav Ivanovic, but Lindegaard is off his line to block the defender's header on goal.
Lindegaard has played more games without ever drawing one than any other player in EPL history (16). Is the streak set to be broken?
77'- Fernando Torres has been introduced to replace Victor Moses. The striker puts on his mask and prepares for action.
Wayne Rooney then almost plays in RvP, but his through ball is blocked by a blue shirt.
75'- Evra plays in Alex Buttner through the left channel, but the Dutchman's driven cross is easily cleared by Branislav Ivanovic.
73'- Antonio Valencia plays a shocking pass back across goal that evades Wayne Rooney. Chelsea break, but again the United defence is strong.
End-to-end, with plenty of space opening up across the breadth of the pitch.
71'- Wayne Rooney gives the ball away with a sloppy pass, but Chelsea can't capitalise.
This is only Buttner's fourth appearance of the EPL season so far. A recent change to the rules means he'll get a winners medal anyway.
69'- Rooney and Alex Buttner replace Anderson and Tom Cleverley respectively. Looks like Buttner will be given left wing responsibilities,with Giggs moved more central.
Manchester United 0-0 Chelsea
67'- Chelsea win a free kick 25 yards from goal. David Luiz and Juan Mata stand over it, but it's the latter who fires his effort into the Manchester United wall.
Wayne Rooney due to come on for the Red Devils.
65'- Ramires and Ashley Cole look to combine down the left flank, but there's too much traffic for that to happen.
United drew 1-1 with Arsenal last weekend, can they do the Gunners a favour and equal or better the side's rivals for the available Champions League places?
63'- Nothing much happening at the moment at Old Trafford, as second half chances remain at a premium.
Chelsea have scored a league best 15 headed goals this campaign. Can the Blues steal one late one?
60'- Ramires gets involved in attacking matters, but overhits an attempted through ball to Ba.
The Red Devils have never done the league double over Chelsea in the EPL era. Can they right that wrong today?
58'- Tom Cleverley plays a very loose ball indeed, evading Ryan Giggs and rolling out for a Chelsea throw.
It would be fair to say that Sir Alex playing him in the hole this afternoon has been a failed experiment.
56'- Juan Mata feeds an advancing Frank Lampard through the middle, but the Chelsea legend's half-volley flies over the crossbar.
Surely not too long before some changes from both managers?
Manchester United 0-0 Chelsea
54'- Chelsea have free kick about 35/40 yards out. David Luiz lines up an outrageous shot, but elects to pass at the final moment. United quickly win back possession.
52'- Very disappointing from Phil Jones as a furious United counter attack sees the Englishman fed into acres of space.
Rather than shooting, he tries to pick of RvP at the far post, but overdoes his cross. Old Trafford sighs.
50'- Victor Moses plays a driven cross into Demba Ba, whose outstretched effort deflects off Jonny Evans for a corner.
Moments later, Ryan Giggs looks to have felled David Luiz on the very edge of the penalty area, nothing given.
48'- David Luiz steps up, and Valencia's pass to Robin van Persie sees the lineswoman raise her flag.
Chelsea sub Fernando Torres has gone 997 minutes on the pitch since he last scored a Premier League goal.
