    • 46' We are off and running in the second half. Berbabov, Nani and Hernandez on for United.

    • 26' Vidic deprives Anelka of the ball. United on the ball.

    • 23' United take on Newcastle United a week tomorrow.
    • 22' Chelsea face West Bromwich in their opening match of the Premier League season on Saturday.

    • 19' Lampard decides to come to the party, but his shot from 25 yards is high and handsome and well off target.

    • 17' Malouda wheels that in. Ivanovic outjumps Vidic, but fine diving stop by Van der Sar in the United goal. Good solid stop.

    • 15' Lampard fires one in to a pile of bodies, but United eventuily hoist the ball clear despite the best efforts of Essien.
    • 14' Vidic fouls Malouda. Free-kick chance to Chelsea.
    • 13' Chelsea back on the attack.
    • 12' Anelka was talking about winning the treble of league, FA Cup and Champions League. Would the Community Shield be part of a quartet?
    • 11' That Wembley pitch is looking a bit better, but let us not speak too soon.
    • 10' This is Essien's first competitive game for Chelsea since December.
    • 9' Starting to warm up all of a sudden as Van der Sar spills a raking shot from Anelka, but Kalou can't score on the follow up from an acute angle.
    • 8' Great chance for United! Valencia picks out Scholes, but that is well over the bar with a volley from inside the box.
    • 7' Cole fairly speeds down the left flank, but Vidic is in an uncompromising mood and just blocks the Chelsea left-back. Solid enough defending.
    • 6' Schole looks for Rooney, but he can't evade Ivanovic and the England striker knocks it out for a Chelsea throw.
    • 5' Scholes flies into a late tackle on Malouda. Lucky to escape a yellow card.

    • 3' Bit of a considered approach by both teams at this early stage.
    • 2' Bobby Charlton and Gianfranco Zola met the players before this kicked off. Fingers crossed they get the game they want to see.
    • 1' Away we go. United get us off and running.
    • - Wonder if this turf will hold up today.
    • - Blake are going to sing the national anthem. Ashley Cole is the only Chelsea player singing it.
    • - For United, Rooney starts alongside Owen, with Hernandez on a strong-looking bench. Scholes gets the nod in the middle of the park, and Carrick has made a miraculous recovery from an injury which Alex Ferguson said would rule him out for two weeks.
    • - So, no Cech for Chelsea - he's out injured. Drogba settles for a place on the bench.
    • - And today's referee is Andre Marriner (W Midlands).
