Full time: Chelsea 1-1 Manchester United

Diego Costa almost wins it as he forces a fine low save from David de Gea, but the Chelsea striker has already had his say. His equaliser keeps Guus Hiddink's unbeaten record as Blues boss alive and stretches it to ten games. Jesse Lingard's goal had looked like giving United the win but the pressure eventually told. United now six points behind fourth place Manchester City, 12 adrift of Leicester.

Well that is all we have time for on this Premier League live text. We're back with coverage of the FA Cup replays in mid-week but until then goodbye.


Can Chelsea win it now? Not like that though as Willian finds De Gea's gloves. Poor effort. Now United go in attempt of a winner but Rooney's chip nestles on top of the roof of the net.


Goal: Chelsea 1-1 Manchester United (Diego Costa)

Chelsea get a second chance and Diego Costa makes no mistake. Daley Blind can't cut out a pass forward and when Borthwick-Jackson blocks the Spaniard's first effort, it leaves De Gea stranded and he passes into an empty net.


Six added minutes at the Bridge.


You always get one chance but Chelsea can't take theirs. Diego Costa rises highest from a Willian free-kick but he nods over. Into stoppage time at Stamford Bridge.


Chelsea with all the ball but they can't find the quality required to break through. United heading everything clear at the moment as we enter the final five minutes.


Chris Smalling the latest player in the referee's notebook with a handball on the floor. Willian over the free-kick which is just buy the corner of the penalty area but Blind head it clear.


Yellow card for Jesse Lingard who takes down Azpilicueta on the run. United pretty much penned in when Chelsea have the ball, making it easy for the home side to build the pressure.


Eden Hazard has featured in dispatches since coming on and he finds Diego Costa well, but the Spaniard's return pass just rolls out of play. Chelsea have 13 minutes to find a leveller.


Into the final 20 minutes and Chelsea are anything but done in this game. De Gea is required again to keep out Fabregas. Fine game this.


David de Gea into the action and he produces a fine save to keep out Branislav Ivanovic, who sends a left-footed volley goalwards which is turned over. Pedro on for Chelsea in place of Matic.


Two more chances for United to increase their lead. First Courtois has to come out to deal with Anthony Martial running through before Lingard takes aim from range and it balloons just over.


Goal: Chelsea 0-1 Manchester United (Jesse Lingard)

Gary Cahill on for Chelsea and it takes Manchester United a matter of minutes to take advantage of that instability. Mata's cross is partially cleared to Lingard who with his back to goal controls it, flicks the ball up and sends a shot into the top corner. Fabulous finish.


Kurt Zouma is agony on the pitch after landing awkwardly after going up for a header. He is going to need a stretcher and on second viewing, it doesn't look good as he overextends on the way down.


Thibaut Courtois with a bit of brilliance to keep the scores level. Lingard has all the time in the world to shoot after being teed up by Fellaini but the Belgian is equal to it and makes a fine save. Eden Hazard coming on to help turn things around, with Oscar making way.


Manchester United start the second half like they began the first, on the front foot and twice they could have gone ahead. First Rooney is denied by Courtois, before Martial hooks a shot wide after coming inside.


Players out for the second half at Stamford Bridge and we're back under way in the second half.


Half time: Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United

All things considered, not a bad game at Stamford Bridge. Chances for both sides, Anthony Martial and Marouane Fellaini for Manchester United and Diego Costa and John Terry for Chelsea. Both sides have had their moments in front of goal but we are yet to see a breakthrough.


Chelsea almost ahead on stoppage time. Willian's cross is deflected through to John Terry who is forward on the attack and it takes a last ditch block from Daley Blind, potentially with his hands, to deny him. Chelsea want a spot-kick but Clattenburg is unmoved.


Another half chance for United after some patient build-up play, which ends as Darmian cross low towards the back post and Rooney just can't reach it.


United's best chance of the half comes and goes from their tenth corner of the game. Fellaini gets free of Zouma from a Mata corner but his flicks his header wide. Less than five minutes until half time.


Chelsea well on top now and Willian as ever is the catalyst. He dips inside Borthwick-Jackson and cross into the six-yard box where Oscar rushes in but can't make the telling contact.


Good work from Chelsea down the left channel of the penalty area. Oscar exchanges passes with Azpilicueta but he blazes over from a tight angle.


Best chance of the game comes for the vastly-improved Chelsea. Oscar plays a delightful slide through pass for Costa, who gets in behind Daley Blind but can't find the target from 15 yards.
