The winner of the tie in West London will book themselves a spot in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup, with the draw being made on Thursday.

For the hosts, they got here after a 7-1 thrashing of Grimsby Town at home, whilst Manchester United edged past Rochdale on penalties after they could only get a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes.

No extra-time will be played at Stamford Bridge should it end in a draw, it will go straight to penalties. 

Will Frank Lampard's side make it eight wins from eight in all competitions, or will Ole Gunnar Solskjær's men end the Blues' unbeaten run? Find out with us, with team news, pre-match build up and live coverage of Chelsea versus Manchester United, below.

Let us know your score predictions down below!

----------

Teams are out onto the pitch at Stamford Bridge.

----------

1’ We are underway at Stamford Bridge.

----------

Chelsea have started well. Moved the ball at a good pace. Finely poised at Stamford Bridge.

----------

10' McTominay the first in the book for a dreadful foul on Mateo Kovacic.

----------

13' McTominay then nearly breaks the deadlock. The corner finds the Scottish midfielder, but he curls his effort over the bar.

----------

15' Scruffy defending by Chelsea and Zouma, but Dan James is rash with his effort and it goes well wide.

----------

----------

18' Michy Batshuayi has also been booked for a late foul on Scott McTominay.

----------

Midway through the second-half and there hasn't been any major chances for either side. Not quite livened up just yet this cup tie,

----------

PENALTY TO MANCHESTER UNITED!

Marcos Alonso made an error and then fouled Dan James in the box.

GOAL! Marcus Rashord scores. 0-1.

----------

Chelsea are struggling in the middle of the park. Passing is off at points. Need to get into second gear.

----------

A Gianluca Vialli banner in the stands tonight.

----------

Callum Hudson-Odoi lacking end product so far tonight, just like against Ajax.

----------

36' Lingard has a pot shot at goal but Caballero claims easily.

----------

38' Reece James drills a great ball into the box, but nobody is there on the end of it, and Wan-Bissaka clears.

----------

Changes needed at the break. Chelsea haven't been good enough, and if they want to make it into the quarter-finals, something has to change. 

----------

ONE MINUTE ADDED ON.

----------

HALF-TIME: Chelsea 0-1 Manchester United

Chelsea have't been good enough. Marcus Rashford's penalty the difference at the break after Marcos Alonso brought down Dan James in the box. 

Frank Lampard needs to think about making changes at half-time. Not enough creativity in the squad tonight.

----------

Marcos Rashford tucking away the visitors' penalty midway through the first-half.

----------

46' Back underway for the second-half. Big 45 minutes needed from Chelsea.

----------

47' Brandom Williams with a naughty challenge on Hudson-Odoi, who fell over the hoardings. 

Lucky lad, and the winger is in some discomfort.

----------

49' Alonso finds the middle of the box, but Hudson-Odoi can't connect with it.

Big chance missed.

----------

52' Claims for a penalty turned down after Gilmour strike at goal.

----------

53' Chelsea break with Christian Pulisic, but the American drags his effort wide.

----------

54' Reece James with an excellent delivery but nobody can get onto the end of it.

Chelsea livening up.

57' Callum Hudson-Odoi fires just over after a brilliant through ball from Pulisic.

----------

GOOOOOOOOALLLLLLLL! MICHY BATSHUAYI LEVELS IT UP!

Chelsea 1-1 Manchester United

A fine finish into the bottom corner from the Belgian leaves Romero helpless. GAME ON!

81' Marcos Alonso wins a corner after he forces a save from Romero at the near post.

United running down the clock here. Tactical time wasting coming into play.

Chelsea have 10 or so minutes to save themselves.

Fred now booked for time wasting.

----------

Game very open now with five to play. Will there be one more twist?

----------

87' Zouma fires one from distance but it is well, no words needed. Such a waste.
