Latest: Chelsea 0 Man Utd 0

Wayne Rooney almost opened the scoring early on at Stamford Bridge, where a win for Chelsea would put them 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Luke Shaw broke clear on the left for Manchester United and pulled the ball back for Rooney, who curled a shot just wide of the target.

The England forward’s left-footed effort struck the stanchion behind the goal, leaving the visiting fans at the opposite of the end of the ground – and United keeper David De Gea – briefly believing their side had gone ahead.

United, still mathematically in with a chance of winning the title, did most of the early pressing and Paddy McNair’s shot went wide after taking a deflection off Blues skipper John Terry.

With Diego Costa and Loic Remy still out injured, Didier Drogba is again leading the line for Chelsea, who have Kurt Zouma in midfield.

Chelsea: Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Zouma, Matic, Oscar, Fabregas, Hazard, Drogba.
Subs: Cech, Filipe Luis, Mikel, Ramires, Cuadrado, Willian, Solanke.

Man Utd: De Gea, Valencia, Smalling, McNair, Shaw, Mata, Rooney, Herrera, Young, Fellaini, Falcao.
Subs: Valdes, Blackett, Rafael, Di Maria, Januzaj, Pereira, Van Persie.
