🧐 A brief summary of the game: Man United were not perfect but they were HUNGRY for the win. From the first whistle, there was a sense of urgency among the players to score. Casemiro led the way with his fine headed goal.

From there on, it was total annihilation of Chelsea - even though they did have their moments throughout the game.

The Red Devils went in with full power as Martial, Rashford and Bruno chipped in with their contributions. Our defence stood strong against most of Chelsea's attempts; the ones they didn't hit wide or off the bar at least.

Even after being 4-0 up, Man United continued to put pressure on the visitors in hopes of a fifth goal. We need the same attitude in all of our games in the future.

🏁 FULL-TIME! What a banger of a game. Vintage Man United at its finest.

πŸ’¬ UtdPlug via Twitter: "Manchester United concede their first goal in 11 in game HOURS at Old Trafford."

⚽ Goal! The visitors pull one back after a series of frantic attempts.

πŸ”ƒSUB: Mctominay replaces Fernandes

πŸ•– 80' Chelsea getting desperate to score and Pulisic tries to head one in. Unfortunately, he collides with De Gea and the latter actually breaks his fall. Pulisic still gets into a scuffle with De Gea. Talk about ungrateful.

⚽ GOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL!!!! Rashford receives the ball and crosses over Kepa to score inside Chelsea's goal. Brutal.

πŸ•– 77' Fred and Garnacho combine to create a chance for Rashford, which he hits just wide.

🟨 Yellow card for Malacia after being involved in a scuffle between both sides.

πŸ’¬UnitedPeoplesTV via Twitter: "Superb from Garnacho and Bruno, lovely skill. Penalty. Only our third this season? BRUNO! 3-0. Game, set and CHAMPIONS LEAGUE. I can hear the anthem already. Get a fourth! Kill em."

πŸ’¬ TheBusbyBabe via Twitter: "Bruno converts his penalty. Tuck in the kids and put this thing to bed."

πŸ’¬ UtdPlug via Twitter: "UCL IS COMING BACK TO THE THEATRE."

⚽ GOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLLL! Our Portuguese magnifico coolly slots in the penalty. We've missed seeing that.

πŸ’¬ samuelluckhurst via Twitter: "Fernandes with a look that says, 'you've got to give me that one'."

πŸ•– 72' Penalty awarded to Man United after Fofana brings down Fernandes with a rash challenge.

πŸ”ƒSUB: Fred and Alejandro Garnacho replace Eriksen and Martial.

πŸ•– 69' Not a lot happening now as the tempo of the game has fallen flat for both sides. Man United are set to make some changes to the team.

πŸ•– 57' Another great save from De Gea to deny Hall's effort on goal.

πŸ’¬ ManUtdMEN via Twitter: "How isn't it 3-0? Malacia plays a cross and Eriksen somehow doesn't."

πŸ’¬ UnitedStandMUFC via Twitter: "Great save to stop Mudryk’s deflected shot from going in!"

πŸ•– 51' GREAT save from David De Gea to deny Mykhailo Mudryk there.

πŸ•– 47' A great chance from inside the box missed as Fernandes hits the bar.

πŸ”ƒSUB: Tyrell Malacia replaces Shaw

πŸ•– 45' And we're back with the second half.

United players rated in first half vs Chelsea

Good: Varane β€” 7.5, Lindelof β€” 7, Casemiro β€” 10, Eriksen β€” 7.

Average: De Gea β€” 6, Wan-Bissaka β€” 6, Shaw β€” 6, Antony (injured) β€” 6, Fernandes β€” 5, Sancho β€” 6, Martial β€” 6.5.

⚫ Half-Time!

⚽ GOOOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLL!!!! Lovely piece of work as Casemiro and Sancho create the perfect opportunity for Martial to tap in.. and he does!

πŸ•– 43' Chelsea look more energised now as they try to make things happen in the final third. Their best chance fell to Gallagher, who only had to do a simple tap-in. However, he failed to make the connection. Still, Chelsea's young team looks like the superior side now.

πŸ’¬ samuelluckhurst via Twitter: "Have always thought Fernandes will start the Cup final on the wing (as he did vs City in January) but Antony's probable absence will likely ensure at least one of Sancho and Martial starts."

πŸ’¬ RobDawson: "Antony briefly got up but is now being stretchered off. Not a good sign with the cup final in nine days. Rashford coming on.

πŸ•– 34' Kai Havertz shockingly wastes a chance to score by missing the goal. Chelsea fans can only sigh in disbelief.

πŸ”ƒSUB: Rashford replaces Antony

πŸ•– 27' Antony's injury doesn't look good, he appears to have damaged his ankle. The winger is being stretchered off the field in heartbreaking scenes. His absence could cost us with the FA Cup final coming up.

🩺 Injury concern: Antony goes down after a challenge and he's receiving treatment. Marcus Rashford is warming up while Erik ten Hag is communicating instructions to Sancho.

πŸ’¬ samuelluckhurst via Twitter: "That's four times now a United forward has had a heavy first touch that has scuppered a chance. Antony was guilty of not playing Martial in against Wolves but Martial can have no excuses after that."

πŸ•’ 18' A lovely pass from Antony finds Anthony Martial in a great scoring position but he fails to connect and the ball is tackled away by Cesar Azpilicueta.

πŸ•’ 10' Bruno Fernandes mistimes a shot and lets a good pass from Jadon Sancho go to waste. Conor Gallagher, meanwhile, is testing Man United's defence numerous times since the start of the game.

πŸ’¬ AidanWalshMUFC via Twitter: "CASEMIRO IS THE DEFINITION OF BIG GAME PLAYER."

πŸ’¬ UnitedPeoplesTV via Twitter: "CASEMIRO! 1-0. 5 MINS IN. ANOTHER HEADER COME ONNNN THE LADS."

πŸ’¬ VintageMUFC via Twitter: "Back to back for big man Case letssss goooooo."

⚽ GOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!!! Casemiro heads the ball in from a free kick! There is a VAR check happening though... and the goal is allowed to stand.

πŸ•’ 2' Chelsea already have a good chance but the shot goes over the bar. A slip-up from Victor Lindelof was the culprit there and the Red Devils need to be careful.

πŸ•’ 0' Things are underway at Old Trafford.

🏁 KICK-OFF: COME ON REDS!
