Man United vs Chelsea live score, updates, and result from Premier League as Casemiro opens scoring


OLD TRAFFORD, MANCHESTER — Manchester United are on the brink of securing a return to the Champions League and will hope to do just that with a good result against Chelsea.

Erik ten Hag’s side need just one point from their remaining two games this season to guarantee a finish in the top four of the Premier League.

European football is now well beyond the reach of Chelsea and interim boss Frank Lampard is merely hoping to restore a little positivity at Stamford Bridge following a dreadful season under the ownership of Todd Boehly’s consortium.

The Sporting News is following Man United vs. Chelsea live and providing score updates, commentary, and highlights as they happen.

Man United vs Chelsea live updates, highlights from Premier League

27th min: Antony can’t continue. He’s just tried to put weight on his right ankle but it’s clearly painful. Rashford comes on to replace him.

24th min: Wan-Bissaka puts the ball out so Antony can receive treatment. Chalobah clearly won the ball with a sliding tackle on the edge of the Chelsea box, but the United winger seems hurt. This might be serious.

19th min: Martial is having a shocker here! Eriksen’s volley forward gives United a three-on-one, Antony finds the United striker, but he takes a touch rather than shoot first time and Azpilicueta gets a toe on the ball to knock it back to Kepa. A huge chance wasted for 2-0.

16th min: United have had three or four attacks break down because of a poor touch from Martial. Ten Hag will be frustrated if they cannot build on this early lead.

14th min: Chelsea have reacted well to going behind but they can’t quite work a way through the United defence. On the break, Antony drives infield from the right, but his shot is poor.

10th min: A chance for Chelsea to equalise! Madueke plays through Havertz, but his cut-back is just too strong for Conor Gallagher to reach.

6th min: GOAL! Man United take the lead! Christian Eriksen floats a free-kick from the left wing into the box, Casemiro rises unchallenged and steers a header high into the net past Kepa. There was a long VAR check for offside, but the goal stands!

4th min: What a miss! Lewis Hall gets free down the left, squares the ball to Mudryk, but he can’t make clean contact and his shot bobbles wide. The winger had the goal at his mercy!

3rd min: United apply some early pressure but a slip from Lindelof allows Havertz to lead a break. When the ball is eventually laid off to Chukwuemeka, he curls a shot comfortably over the bar.


We’re off and running in the penultimate Premier League match of the season at Old Trafford.

5 mins to KO: Here come the teams! The sun is just setting over the top of the Stretford End as ‘This Is The One’ rings out over the tannoy, although you can still make out ‘We want Glazers out’ emanating from the Stretford End.

15 mins to KO: Erik ten Hag has explained why Rashford is only a substitute for this game. He told Sky Sports: “I wouldn’t say only on the bench. I think Manchester United need a good bench with top players. He can do something from the bench, but we have a strong team.”

30 mins to KO: According to Opta, this is the youngest starting lineup Chelsea have ever named for a Premier League match in terms of average age (23 years and 238 days). Lampard is pointing to the future, even if he won’t be part of it at Stamford Bridge.

1 hour to KO: TEAM NEWS: Man United are unchanged from their 1-0 win at Bournemouth, which means Rashford must settle for a place on the bench. Anthony Martial leads the line.

There’s no Raheem Sterling in the squad for Chelsea, with Lampard opting for Noni Madueke and Mykhailo Mudryk in attack alongside Kai Havertz.

1 hour 15 mins to KO: Sir Alex Ferguson is, of course, here to watch. The last five league meetings between Man United and Chelsea have ended in draws: 0-0, 0-0, 1-1, 1-1, 1-1. Here’s hoping The Boss gets a bit more entertainment tonight.

1 hour 30 mins to KO: This would be an interesting game for Mason Mount given the reports linking him with a move to Man United when the transfer window opens. Unfortunately, he’s out injured. Instead, we’ll focus on another contract rebel: Marcus Rashford. The United forward is expected to start and will be keen to make an impact after scoring just twice in his past nine league games.

1 hour 45 mins to KO: This might not have the glamour status of United vs. Chelsea matches of bygone years, but interest in the game doesn’t seem to have diminished. The roads leading to Old Trafford were heavy with traffic a good three hours before kickoff (not helped by rush hour), and the media centre at the stadium is so busy there are reporters spilling out into the nearby corridor. Of course, Chelsea players in this bloated squad know that feeling only too well.

2 hours to KO: Chelsea have won just one of their past 12 matches in all competitions. Frank Lampard’s last two visits to Old Trafford as Blues manager ended 0-0 and 4-0 to the home side. Can he hope for something better this time?
