  • Speaking pre-match for Sky Sports, Graeme Souness has become the latest expert to declare the Europa League as the sole reason behind Swansea's troubles this season. "It's a nightmare for clubs of Swansea's size," he said, conveniently forgetting about the campaigns where clubs of Swansea's size - Middlesbrough and Fulham - had an unforgettable time in reaching the final of the competition while finishing mid-table in the Premier League.

  • Swansea 0 Tottenham 0: And we're off...

  • Swansea 0 Tottenham 0: The home side have started impressively well, playing the neat, one-touch possession football that has become their schtick. Wayne Routledge and Alejandro Pozuelo have been at the heart of it, but who knows what part of the anatomy Jonjo Shelvey is playing. The former Liverpool midfielder has blasted two long range efforts high and wide in the opening six minutes.

  • Swansea 0 Tottenham 0: Third time lucky from Shelvey, who manages to evade the challenge of Vlad Chiriches while making the defender look pretty silly in the process before unleashing an another effort from 20 yards towards goal. This one is on target, but it's comfortably beaten away by Hugo Lloris.

  • Swansea 0 Tottenham 0: Michael Laudrup has clearly instructed his side to shoot on sight this afternoon because Wilfried Bony has just registered his team's fifth attempt of the game, and all of those have come from outside the box. One was even courtesy of little Leon Britton, his first shot of the season.

    However, only one has troubled Lloris.

  • Michael Carrick takes a rest as Samuel Eto'o celebrates his opening goal.

  • Chelsea 1 Manchester United 0: Fan favourite Ashley Young sees yellow for cynically bringing down Ramires, and joins David Luiz in the book. The Brazilian was cautioned shortly after the goal for clashing with Antonia Valencia, and has been on the receiving end of a touchline verbal volley from his manager for not holding his position.

  • Chelsea 1 Manchester United 0: A good opportunity goes begging for United. Adnan Januzaj causes chaos in the Chelsea six yard box with a low delivery, and when the ball falls for Welbeck, the striker is unable to dig out a proper powerful shot under the close scrutiny of Cesar Azpilicueta, allowing Cech to collect without difficulty.

    At the other end, Oscar shows off his Brazilian passport with a acrobatic bicycle kick, but is well off target and Chelsea's lead stays at a single goal.

  • GOAL! Chelsea 2 Manchester United 0: On the stroke of half-time, Chelsea have a second! United thought they had done their immediate job by clearing a corner, but their defence were slow in getting out and gave Ramires plenty of time to pick a pass to Gary Cahill on the right hand side of the box. From there, the defender's low centre across goal was turned in from six yards by Samuel Eto'o, through the body of David De Gea, for his and Chelsea's second of the game.

  • Half-time - Chelsea 2 Manchester United 0: The whistle goes for half-time, and the Blues are sitting comfortably. It's been a decent display from Manchester United but, unlike the hosts, they haven't taken the opportunities when they have presented themselves and it will take a monumental effort to get back into the match from here. Anybody would think they were missing their two star strikers.

  • Samuel Eto'o bags his second just before the break.
