Relive the match as it happened with's Ben Hibbs...

22:35 That's also it from me in this live blog. I hope you've enjoyed the coverage tonight, thanks for joining us.

22:34 Ok, that's it from the post-match press conferences. Keep an eye out on for more reaction from the Old Trafford dressing room.

22:29 Jose Mourinho is next up in the press room. "I think the result is fair. I don't think either team did enough to be better than the opponent. But a point here is always a good point."

22:27 David Moyes was asked at the end whether United had made a bid for Gareth Bale. He said: No. Manchester United are always interested in the best players. The board and myself are always looking to sign the best players, wherever they are."

22:25 Moyes on the reception he received from the Old Trafford crowd: "I'm extremely proud to be managing Manchester United and I was very happy with the reception I got. But I want to be applauded in the future for winning things."

22:23 Moyes on the penalty shout: "Chelsea have had two decisions in a week that have been close. I think we could do with getting defined what's going to be given a handball and what's not this season."

22:22 Moyes on Rooney: "I was very pleased with Wayne Rooney's performance and I was pleased with the crowd's reaction towards him. He worked hard, he chased back and fought hard." 

22:21 David Moyes on his team's performance: "I thought we did create the chances. If anyone created chances it was. We just didn't have the final cross or the final ball. But I thought we played very well.
