Manchester United an Chelsea played out for a goalless draw at Old Trafford.

The game made both managers aware that they need to make improvements to their squads before the end of the transfer window.

United had the better chances in the game, but they couldn't sustain the pressure on John Terry that might have made him worry.

The best chance of the game was for Robin van Persie, the Golden Boot winner of last season. Three minutes from time, his volleyed effort at goal was deflected by both Gary Cahill and John Obi Mikel.

Jose Mourinho made no secret that he wants to sign Wayne Rooney within the next seven days. Playing in a deeper role for Manchester United than Chelsea would perhaps play him in, he did extremely well during his first start since April. He tested Petr Cech with a late strike.

Chelsea have already had two bids for Rooney turned down, and we are all expecting a third this week.

Mata did not feature in the Chelsea starting line-up and was on the substitute's bench. His future is far from certain at Stamford Bridge.

Oscar was the player for Chelsea that created most of the chances and seemed very intelligent when he played in-front of the Manchester United's back four. He even tested De Gea a few times.

The second-half was exactly the same as the first. It was the classic fighting game. Both teams fought their way through, but the defenders for both teams were too strong for the attacking players. The goalkeepers had very little work throughout the game.
