Full-time: Manchester United 2-1 Chelsea


But United cling on!


The four minutes are up, and Chelsea will have one last corner. Courtois is up....


Outstanding from Lukaku! From inside his own half, he drives forward but has no one up in support with him. Instead, the Belgian powers on himself, bursting past three Chelsea players to burst into the box and testing Courtois.


Four minutes of time added on at Old Trafford.

Jesse Lingard

Is this the moment where the game was decided? Just one minute of the 90 remains.


Morata is now shown a yellow card, judged to have clipped Smalling while the defender was on a surging run upfield. Yes, you read that last part right.


Morata finds the bottom corner! But the offside flag is up. Fabregas lifts a superb ball over the top to find his countryman but the striker is just leaning offside.


Matic now hauls Willian back almost comically and takes the inevitable yellow card.


Rudiger comes in with a rash challenge on Lingard; one Matic takes serious exception to. The Serbian makes a beeline for the Chelsea defender but is pulled back by his United teammates who eventually calm him down.


Jose is looking to lock things up; Eric Bailly comes onto replace Sanchez.


Another change for Chelsea, here comes Olivier Giroud to replace Moses.


Lindelof tries to smash the ball clear but fires straight into a Chelsea player, with the rebound falling to Pedro who is free in the box! But just as he is about to pull the trigger, Smalling makes a terrific sliding challenge across to make the block.


United take the lead! Romelu Lukaku turns provider, whipping a sublime ball in from the right to find Lingard, who has crept inside Christensen. His timing is perfect and is able to steer a header past Courtois, nestling one in at the near post.


Goal! Manchester United 2-1 Chelsea (Jesse Lingard, 75)


Young fires it in but no United player can get a clean header on it.


Valencia initially shows too much of the ball to Alonso while racing down the right but the Spaniard stupidly gives him a shove in the back, conceding the free kick. Another chance for United to whip something into the box.


Here's Chelsea's first change of the afternoon and it is Eden Hazard coming off with Pedro onto replace him.


Christensen is left in a heap after Pogba crashes through him. He looks a bit winded, but will be okay to continue.


What an effort from Lukaku! Sanchez twists and turns around the edge of the box before lifting a cross back into the Belgian who connects with a scissor kick, only for Courtois to bat it over the bar.


Lingard's first involvement is to brilliantly hook the ball away from Willian with a sliding challenge before shifting the ball upfield to Pogba. He tries to thread a pass through for Lukaku but Azpilicueta reads his attempt and intercepts.


And it is Anthony Martial who makes way with Jesse Lingard on with just over half an hour remaining.


Sanchez has a go from 25 yards out but fires an aimless effort wide. Given his performance, it should really be him who makes way for Lingard; an awful big shout for Mourinho to make.


As we approach the hour mark, Jesse Lingard is preparing to come on for United. Who will make way?
