PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEP! CHELSEA 1 - 0 MANCHESTER UNITED 

What a brilliant game that was completely ruined as a spectacle by Oliver's dicey refereeing. Mourinho will have plenty to say on that - stay tuned to sportskeeeda.com to catch every last word of it. 

A wonderfully well taken Kante goal gives Chelsea a win, that on balance they probably deserved.

It was a hoot covering this game, thank you for reading. 

Anirudh Menon signing out. 

Toodle-ooo!

...
94' United press forward in one final, brave push, but a mass of blue shirts ensures that Rashford can't get a shot away. 
...
93' Conte kills off thirty more seconds by taking off Costa and bringing on Twitter celebrity Michy Batshuayi
...
91' FOUR MINUTES ADDED ON. Rashford tries to power his way into the box, but Zouma does well to clear. United get a thow in but Smalling gifts the ball back with a touch of ghastly proportions. Chelsea counter at extreme pace - but first De Gea, then a sliding Rojo tackle ensures that Fabregas doesn't add his name to the goalscorer's list.
...
90' Chelsea do their chelsea thing of expertly killing it, but Alonso has loftier ambitions and tries to curl it in. De Gea pumps it long and Fellaini tries to head it on, but it;s got too much on it.  
...
88' Victor Moses is taken of as Kurt Zouma gets a late run on. 
...
86' Rojo and Costa are engaged in a brilliant battle of his own, and both those men are liable to get themselves into the ref's book. It's Costa who gets the honour - for an ungainly challenge on Jones. 
...
84' Rashford has a small chance, but Cahill sees him off and starts a superb counter that necessitates a superb Jones tackle to make sure a second goal doesn't go in.
...
83' Fabregas slithers into the United box, but Rojo does well to put him and the Spaniard runs the ball out. 
...
81' United put together a rare, rare move and the ball is worked out to Pogbaaaaaaa... whose shot meekly curls wide of a diving Courtois. 
...
80' Hazard runs at the United defence, but first Darmian and then Pogba do well to shepherd him away from danger. Conte meanwhile sees an opening here and takes off Willian for Fabregas. Meanwhile, Mourinho readies the kitchen sink as he throws on Lingard for Young.  
...
79' Young clatters into Moses - the man has become a bundle of frustration - and goes into the ref's naughty book.
...
78' Valencia lunges in on the ball, and is a lucky boy to walk away without even a caution. Mourinho will tell the person who points that to him, that it's just belated karma for that harsh Herrera yellow (2nd)
...
77' Jones has been immense in the air tonight, and he smacks it out promptly. 
...
76' United have a throw in, but Chelsea are making full use of that one-man advantage, and almost immediately recover the ball. A frustrated Young ends up giving away a rather cheap corner. 
...
74' Valencia gets fed up with all the toying-around that is happening and goes straight through Hazard. Chelsea freekick as the ball simply refuses to leave the men in Blue. Moses and Willian combine and the latter powers into the box. He squares it at goal and Diego Costa is INCHES away from killing the game. 
...
72' WOOF! Willian spins around Darmian with absurd ease before smacking a ball that is heading toward the corner of the net at the near post before De Gea gets a strong hand to it. 
...
71' Kante walks around Young, but his ball in is headed out by Rojo just before Costa can get his noggin' to it. The corner is cleared, but Moses sears through the left - but Jones does well to keep him out.  
...
69' Costa tries to run straight through the heart of United's defence, but Rojo is having none of it. The pressure from Chelsea's side has crossed the limits of incessant to the utterly unbearable now. The away side need a break or two right about now. 
...
67' Moses bombards forward in that inimitable style of his and lifts it in - and Jones takes no risks by heading it out. Nothing comes off the corner, but it is ALL Chelsea right now. 
...
66' OH! Diego Costa is caught offside by a nice little chip from Hazard... but it's what happened after that has the ref's attention. Rojo runs into Costa, and the Chelsea man goes down like a redwood tree in Canadian timber season. Oliver sees straight through it, though. This time. Rojo is waling a thin line here
...
65' Hazard has a pop from thirty yards - but for all the man's untouchable dribbling tonight - he's left his shooting boots at home .
...
62' OW OW OW! Rojo takes an almighty risk by diving in on Costa, but the Argentine did really well to pull out of the slide and then extend his leg a second time to stop Costa. The Bridge appeals for a penalty, but the ref waves play on.
...
61' Chelsea are camped in United third right now. Willian and Hazard taking turns to dance around the defense... Kante then pulls of a brilliant dummy before laying it of to Willian - whose curler goes just wide. 
...
60' OW!!! A Free header for Diego Costa - and the naturalised Spaniard puts it well wide! WHAT A MISS!
...
59' Young's corner is easily cleared and Chelsea have a 3 v 1 counter! Hazard overcooks his pass to Moses and the latter plays it off Rojo for a corner...
...
58' Pogba releases Rashford down the middle and he terrorizes Cahill with a weaving run... he leaves the veteran defender for dead but one-on-one with Courtois he smacks it straight at the goalie!! OH MY LORD!! WHAT A CHANCE! WHAT A RUN!
...
57' Chelsea are owning this right now, but Moses wanders offside to kill their latest patient move
...
55' Azipilicueta has a whack from distance - and why not - but his shot is way too wayward to trouble anyone but the rather rotund spectator sitting high above De Gea's goal. 
...
54' Azpilicueta and Willian interchange passes down the right, but the latter takes his eyes off the ball for a second, and it rolls away. 
...
53' Pogba tries to unleash Rashford down the field, but the Englishman has wandered offside. This is Mt. Everest right now for United. 
...
52' United win a freekick almost immediately, but from Young's delivery Fellaini is caught offside.
...
Kante looks up from around twenty five yards and belts a low, unstoppable, shot low into the corner. WOOF! WHAT A SHOT! Of all the players to do it, too. 
...
51' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOALL!!! KANTE!!!
...
50' This is Chelsea against a bank of red shirts now - and Costa simply can't find a way through, United are sitting too deep here....
...
49' WHAT A TURN FROM FELLAINI! The tree can play! he pulls of a Zidane-esque pirouette to waltz away from Matic, but Chelsea win the ball back. All that pressure then ends with Azpilicueta smacking a shot straight into orbit. 
...
48' Young then makes up for it with superb defensive work that ensures that Moses doesn't walk into the six yard box!
...
47' You'll live a hundred years before you see a worse set-piece. Young's ball barely took off and smacked into the first man - who almost sparked a counter!
...
46' United start the half they started the first one. Pogba turns Kante brilliantly to win a foul, and Young stands over the freekick.
...
PEEP! We're off!
