    Bayern, Barca, Real and co will be rubbing their hands looking at what the premier league has to offer this season.

    Mancs to score from this corner.

    Embarrasing that Moyes was willing to settle for a point before the game started rather than try and win it!

    Out of his depth.

    Chelsea are away to the league champions and have so far made Man U look poor. A draw is a much better result for Chelsea than Man U.

    You missunderstand irony, I find it ironic considering who your manager is that you are already on the defensive toward a team that already has the points in the bag…

    Not sure if you're aware of this - Moyes was the manager who started with 3 strikers; Mourinho was the one who started with 6 midfielders.

    Must try harder, mate.

    Chelsea made us look poor? Did you watch the game mate, or just watch the live text updates?

    Two points dropped by us; a point gained for Chelsea.

    All I can say is - maybe this game has come too early, with not enough at stake. It wasn't played with any intensity, or intent. Lots of popping the ball around doing nothing.

    Jose's experiment was a failure.

    What a boring pile of crap. Clear play for a draw from both sides, they should all be ashamed.

    On the face of it it's a decent result but the manner in which 2 points were surrendered by everyone involved is just absolutely sickening.

    Ironically Rooney seems to be the only man who gives a shit. Valencia was a liability as usual, his days must surely be numbered. Kagawa also doesn't seem to be in Moyes' plans at all.

    Looked like a 0-0 from the start, absolutely dire. Man Utd looked strangely tentative for long periods, Chelsea wanted a point. The highlight was Welbeck's shot, most entertaining moment of the evening. That Davie Whatsisname on commentary is always dreadful.

    Hardly a classic but you can never be too disappointed with a point against Chelsea. We looked pretty solid I thought

    Rooney played decent. Not sure if that was because he was trying to impress Mourinho or he wants to stay...

    Disagree. His plan to not lose worked perfectly.

    Mourinho started 8 strikers if you count Wellbeck as one.
