For the second time this season, Chelsea and Manchester United battled to a scoreless draw.

The latest result came Sunday at Stamford Bidge, where the home side couldn't translate dominant stretches of play into goals while the visitors also squandered their handful of opportunities. The biggest talking point of the encounter came a quarter hour into the first half as Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi appeared to handle the ball inside his team's penalty area, which led to a VAR review that ultimately cleared the 20-year-old of any wrongdoing.

Neither side could find a breakthrough moment despite a more inspired second half, resulting in the second straight 0-0 Premier League deadlock between the teams.

DAZN News provided live updates of the match as it happened. Here's how it went down.


Full-time: Chelsea 0-0 Man Utd

That's it! The teams each leave with a point after both failed to score.

90' Three minutes added

This is looking destined to be a scoreless draw unless one of the teams conjures a moment of brilliance.

80' Ten minutes to go

Will we see a breakthrough?

76' United threatening

The visitors have been applying more pressure of late, and this second half has been far more entertaining than the first. That said, there still haven't been too many opportunities between the two sides.

61' Save Mendy!

After being dominated for most of the opening 15 minutes of this half, United finally put together a decent passage of play that results in a hard McTominay shot from the top of the Chelsea area that requires a good save by the goalkeeper.

49' Save De Gea!

James should've put Chelsea ahea with a point-blank shot, but the United 'keeper makes a great reaction save to preserve the 0-0.

45' Second half kick-off

Chelsea get us underway for the final 45 minutes.

Halftime: Chelsea 0-0 Man Utd

That was an uninspiring half of football, at least where goal scoring opportunities were concerned. Neither side showed any real polish in the final third, and as a result it was 45 minutes of aimless play.

45' Two minutes added

There's not much going on in terms of chances, and with few stoppages there's only two added minutes to play.

31' Chance!

De Gea botches a clearance straight to Giroud, who rushes his effort and sends a shot skyward. The Chelsea striker probably could've done better with that opportunity.

16' VAR suggests a second look at a potential penalty

Hudson-Odoi cleared the ball from the Chelsea area and there was some question as to whether he handled it. The referee consults the screen before deemingthat there was no infraction.

11' Chelsea on top

After 10 minutes, the home side are on the front foot with 71% possession and the game's only shot thus far.


The game is underway at Stamford Bridge.
