Premier League: Manchester United frustrated by Chelsea in goalless draw

Manchester United have not won at Old Trafford in the Premier League this season, drawing 0-0 with Chelsea on Saturday.

United, who lost the opening two home games of the season, are 15th with seven points from five games, while Chelsea are sixth with nine points from six games.

Marcus Rashford made the first real effort towards the goal when he found himself in space on the right side in the 35th minute, but his low drive extended by Chelsea keeper Edward Mendy’s right foot was well saved.

Six minutes later, Mendy was back in action and he pushed a Juan Mata snapshot wide into the post.

In search of a spark to revive the game, United manager Ole Gunner Soulscare brought in Paul Bogba and Edinson Cavani in the 58th minute.

His United debut Uruguayan Cavani scored almost from his first touch with a brilliant shot from the cross by Bruno Fernandez, which zipped into the side net.

Chelsea posed a minor threat, with United just going very close to a winner, with Mendy in the 90th minute retaining a well-beaten, curling effort from full rashboard.
