FT - Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Phil McNulty

BBC Sport chief football writer at Old Trafford

"United's vibrant start, out of character with the timidity of recent weeks, instantly lifted the spirits and the fans remained solidly behind their team throughout. The final whistle was greeted with some jeers but this was more out of frustration that United could not find a winner."

Manager reaction - Van Gaal

FT - Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal speaking to BT Sport: "It was a very good performance but you have to score - we didn't. Two times we hit the post with goalkeeper beaten. We also have big chance in the second half, two penalty cases and didn't receive penalties. We are forcing the luck but we don't have the luck that we need."

#bbcfootball It's been the same for Chelsea all season, no strikers = no goals. No passion or commitment from the current ones at the club.

Hiddink happy

FT- Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Phil McNulty

BBC Sport chief football writer at Old Trafford

Chelsea interim boss Guus Hiddink says in his news conference: "The players have experienced a very bad half year. They have to lift it up and that's what we have talked about in the locker room. Everyone is convinced we couldn't go on on the same path and we have shown that in the last three games."

Utd unlucky. Hit woodwork twice & 2 pens turned down. LVG may lose his job but was other 0-0s that did it. Not this one. #bbcfootball #LVG

Manager reaction - Van Gaal

FT - Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal speaking to BBC Sport: "We have forced the luck and still we didn't score and that is unbelievable when you see what happens today. I am frustrated.

"I thank my players for the performance but we need a victory. It gives a lot of hope for the fans. My relationship with players, board and staff members is very good. There is no reason to sack me. 

"The results are not good enough. I know that, the players and board know that. It can be different in about one month."

'It's the same story'

FT - Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin:"I thought we were unlucky. Everyone in the changing room is disappointed we did not win. We dominated the game and had a good tempo - we were on the front foot from kick-off and showed commitment. 

"We wanted to show the fans we wanted to win but it is the same story again - in football you can't win if you don't score."

The sad truth for United AND Chelsea fans is that both teams probably would have lost today if they hadn't played each other #bbcfootball

'In general, I'm happy'

FT - Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink, speaking to BBC Sport: “On the one hand, I am happy with a point because we had a difficult game, but on the other, we had two big chances to get three points. We were lacking some attacking players and had to adapt. In general, I’m happy.

“Hazard is very mobile and can go either way. His preference is the left and he’s doing very well in the centre. All our strikers are injured, so we have to adapt."

Trip to the Palace

FT - Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Next up for Chelsea is fifth-placed Crystal Palace away on 3 January. The champions start 2016 three points above the relegation zone and 14th in the Premier League table.

Van Gaal: I'm not resigning

FT - Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, speaking to BT Sport: “For me, it [his future] is not an interesting subject because I cannot have any influence on that, I can only work with my players and you can see they are fighting for me. Even after this result the fans were applauding so I cannot say I’m very much concerned. In this football world you never know, but I’m fully confident in the board and my players.

"Will I resign? On the contrary. When the players can give such a performance with a lot of pressure, there is not any reason to resign for me. Maybe the media wants me to but I shall not resign. It's not a question of staying, it's a question of fulfilling my contract."

'Rooney should have been sent off'

FT - Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Wayne Rooney fought hard and was far more influential but should have scored and should have been sent off for that challenge on Oscar.

United haven't scored a home 1st half goal since Wolfsburg on 30th September and that was a penalty #3months #noplan #bbcfootball

Nothing to be taken from that performance. Still didn't score and Chelsea there for the taking. Not good enough. LVG out now. #bbcfootball

Is there a manager out there in the mould of Sir Alex who can get Utd playing to the same level & strike fear in them? #MUFC #bbcfootball

'Pity Matic missed'

FT - Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, speaking to BT Sport: “They wanted to win in front of their fans. From the start they put high pressure on us. Without a striker, it wasn’t easy for us to find depth but we had chances and David [de Gea] played well. The team showed progression, which was good.

“It’s a pity Matic doesn’t score. It’s more difficult for us than last year, but I think we are getting into a flow to win games.

“You cannot think it’s not possible to get relegated, but we look forward, and we think that soon we will get the winning flow.”

Nine points from summit

FT - Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

United had 67% possession to Chelsea's 33% yet they end 2015 without a win in eight league and cup games. They will start 2016 out of the Champions League, League Cup and nine points behind new Premier League leaders Arsenal.

Clean sheet for #MUFC with the return of Schneiderlin & Schweinsteiger in midfield. Coincidence? #bbcfootball

People are saying Man U were playing for Van Gaal tonight. Were they trying to earn him the record for 0-0 draws? #bbcfootball

Draw isnt a fair result. @ChelseaFC were awful and never deserved even a point. And this coming from a CFC fan. #SSNHQ #bbcfootball #MANCHE

'We will keep fighting'

Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney speaking to BT Sport: "We created a lot of chances but didn't manage to take one. The crowd were excellent today and you could see how much it meant to the players. It's a disappointing result because we dominated the game but that is football.

"A lot of people say a lot of different things. We would be letting ourselves down if we didn't go out on the pitch and give our all. We will keep fighting and we will come back."

'United's best display for some time..but'

FT - Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Chris Waddle

BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

"I'm not sure where Manchester United go from here but this is the best I have seen them play for some time. They ran out of legs second half but they were totally committed to the cause. Chelsea looked short on confidence and missed a recognised striker up top."

FT- Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Chelsea's players are only just leaving the pitch. They've all gone over to applaud their travelling fans. It's a decent point for Guus Hiddink but he's still searching for his first win since being named interim boss.

YELLOW CARD

Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Naughty by Wayne Rooney. A horrible challenge on Oscar and it should be a straight red card. Instead Martin Atkinson brandishes a yellow.

"Great football - and what a delivery from Borthwick-Jackson. Great pace on it but Rooney can't get his foot up early enough. It was just too high for him."

Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

"Attack, attack, attack," is the roar inside Old Trafford. It's a familiar chant but this time it's coming from those cheeky Chelsea fans.

Huge chance for Wayne Rooney...and he's put it wide! A delicious cross by the young lad Cameron Borthwick-Jackson but Rooney misses.

"United's players have put a terrific shift in but now they look like they are feeling the pace. They've played some risky football which is not what you expect to see. You cannot say this team haven't played for Van Gaal today. They've given everything."

Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Frustration from the crowd as a United attack breaks down just outside the Chelsea box.
