Chelsea vs Crystal Palace LIVE: Latest Premier League updates

Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira

Chelsea host Patrick Vieira’s new-look Crystal Palace in the Premier League this afternoon.

Thomas Tuchel’s side played 120 minutes in midweek as they lifted the Uefa Super Cup in Belfast, with the head coach admitting the scenario was far from ideal in regards to his players’ physical fitness. Several key players did start on the bench, though, and the European champions head into the new season bursting with confidence. Considered the greatest threat to Manchester City’s Premier League crown, the Blues’ squad has been significantly bolstered by the £97.5m signing of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan, however, the striker will not be available this afternoon.

Crystal Palace, meanwhile, are entering uncharted territory with new manager Patrick Vieira at the helm. The Eagles have undergone a major overhaul this summer, with Roy Hodgson and a raft of senior players leaving the cub. They have invested heavily, too, after American businessman John Textor acquired an £87.5m stake in the club. Marc Guehi has been the club’s headline signing of the window, and the centre-back is in line to make his Palace debut against his former club. Follow all the action live below:

Premier League: Manchester Utd 5-1 Leeds

Full time at Old Trafford.

A sobering day for Leeds at OT.

The score line didn’t really reflect how the game played out. Leeds were vulnerable defensively, but it wasn’t as if United controlled the game for the entire 90 minutes, they had their chances.

But Paul Pogba dominated the midfield for Man Utd, at times he was like an adult playing against school children. Imperious from the Frenchman.

Some cracking goals in the game, Greenwood’s, Ayling’s, Fernandes’ third, all worthy of winning any match.

A real positive start to the season for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.

85 min: A chance for Leeds to add a second, but Raphinha, who has been very quiet today, lashed at his shot, and it goes wide.

He had more time than he thought to take aim.
