Chelsea vs Manchester United
What was viewed as the weekend’s marquee Premier League clash is currently being played out at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea would host Manchester United as they looked to gain some ground on their Europe-chasing rivals.
After West Ham lost to Manchester City on Saturday, the Blues knew a win against United on Sunday would see them knock the Hammers out of the top-four.
At present, though, Thomas Tuchel’s side are currently being held by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s outfit.
The first 45 saw very few clear-cut chances created from either side, with Callum Hudson-Odoi’s potential handball the main talking point in the opening exchanges.

At the start of the second half, though, there did look to have been a rather interesting change made by Tuchel.
This came with Hudson-Odoi, who didn’t appear to be injured when he left the field at half-time, coming off for Reece James.
Given Tuchel had previously hooked Hudson-Odoi after bringing him on vs Southampton, eyebrows were no doubt raised when news on CHO’s withdrawal against United surfaced.
Hudson-Odoi subbed again is… surprising. Didn’t appear to be injured and played the most dangerous ball of the first half #CHEMUN

However, it has since been revealed that the winger is simply injured, and has been pictured with some form of ice pack on his leg:
