Man Utd vs Chelsea: Livescore from EPL clash at Old Trafford

Man Utd vs Chelsea: Livescore from EPL clash at Old Trafford

De Gea was at fault with a series of high-profile errors towards the end of last season, but the Spaniard - handed the captain's armband in the absence of Ashley Young - looked back to his old self as he beat away another two powerful drives from Emerson after the break. He believes the American is ready after working with him in pre-season, though he also cautioned he could take some time to adapt. "We gave them clear opportunities to score and they took them".

The former Red Devils boss is one of six men to have guided Chelsea to an away victory over United in the Premier League.

Renowned for his hard work and effort, Azpilicueta has all the qualities you could ask for in a defender but may get left behind by the way Lampard wants his defenders to play.

The current squad is imbalanced of players' bough in by previous managers Antonio Conte and Maurizio Sarri but includes a lot of hungry youngsters looking to impress. "He's being there for many years".

But unfortunately, being a good player isn't enough.

At the same time, Chelsea and Lampard have the flawless opportunity to give their very talented academy products a chance to shine - perhaps the biggest chance for Chelsea's youngsters in more than a decade.

Who do you think will come out on top this afternoon?

"We knew there were only two clean sheets past year here". It certainly feels sweater if you do prove someone wrong or get to where you want to be. I use all that stuff as motivation. Teams liked playing United past year - they were vulnerable defensively.

Considering that they have lost their best player, appointed a novice manager and begun serving a two-window transfer ban, there is more optimism at Stamford Bridge than might ordinarily be expected. To come to Old Trafford, even if it's not the huge Manchester United team that used to scare people, it's still Manchester United. I like to be considered not as a favourite.

"My feeling is that today they had the possibility to play with more know-how", Mourinho told Sky Sports. He played a key role in Leicester's astonishing title-winning 2015/16 campaign.

United are once again going to be Chelsea's first opponents and Lampard admits it isn't going to be easy. "I don't listen too much to things". We want to hit the ground running, yes.

This time they start in their 62,000-seater stadium, have Kane fresh and in 65 million-pound midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, signed from Olympique Lyonnais, have made a statement signing.

Frank Lampard admitted his side made four mistakes against Manchester United, but felt his side were in control for a large parts of the game.
