It was a poor match, in truth, albeit one with a handful of talking points - Rooney's performance and some handball decisions among them.
FT: Manchester United 0-0 Chelsea.
90+3' Corner is cleared after Rooney's attempt and that should be that.
90+3' Rooney breaks and United earn a corner through Young. Meanwhile, Azpilicueta replaces Hazard for Chelsea.
90+2' It's really petering out. Chelsea with some late possession, though.
90' There will be three minutes of time added.
Moyes wins first battle with an elite manager with his management of Rooney - and this subsequent display he got from him - alone— jamie jackson (@GuardianJamieJ) August 26, 2013
88' And Mikel's first involvement is to throw himself in front of a venomous Van Persie shot.
87' Mikel replaces Schurrle for Chelsea.
85' Michael Carrick has completed 86% of his passes so far.
Rooney has been much the best player in this messy game. Welbeck's finishing was wild. United will be Carrick-dependent this year.— Paul Hayward (@_PaulHayward) August 26, 2013
78' Giggs has replaced Welbeck for United.
78' Rooney hits one from distance and Cech has to make his best stop of the night!
Stretford End brief burst of "attack, attack, attack". Not a classic this. Rooney still the best player on show. Giggs coming on.— Henry Winter (@henrywinter) August 26, 2013
75' Another fantastic track-back from Rooney to spring a counter-attack, but Young runs offside.
Think this game emphasises Utd's need for a top class central midfield player-lacking real invention in there against a well organised side— Darren Fletcher (@DFletcherSport) August 26, 2013
72' Talking-point! Cole goes to ground and shouts for a penalty off Phil Jones. Clear dive. Lucky to avoid a booking, Cole.
70' Torres gets his first few touches but Cleverley dispossesses him.
If there's one pleasure to be had from this it's watching Carrick's game management. United would be screwed without him— Ian Prior (@ianprior) August 26, 2013
66' Young replaces Valencia for United.
65' Torres' introduction has allowed Schurrle to move to the right and have a go at Evra.
63' We have end-to-end-stuff now! Cole does well to track down Valencia.
62' United with another handball shout. This time it's Lampard who's the culprit.
