The bore draw means both sides have continued their mediocre starts to the campaign.
Frank Lampard 's Chelsea, flush with a raft of new additions over the summer, remain shaky at the back and unconvincing at times going forward.
While Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 's side are so far paying for the price for a dismal summer in the transfer market.
But which of the Premier League's big-hitters will finish higher this term as they both look to replicate last term's top-four finish?
Aaron Stokes - Manchester United
While there is a terrific amount to like about Chelsea's attacking exploits, they remain too fragile in defence.
Two cleans sheet in as many games of late is a move in the right direction - but with West Brom and Southampton notching three each against the Blues this term already, the backline could cost Lampard once again.
As for United, never write off Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Every time he looks on the brink at Old Trafford, he gets his side playing - as seen against PSG twice and earlier this year with their post-Christmas form.
To add, United will be a different force entirely when the Norwegian finds a way to play Donny van de Beek, Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes together.
Dave Armitage - Chelsea
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be happy the fans are excluded because United's home form is abysmal.
A 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace followed by a 6-1 thumping by Spurs and then the Chelsea game giving them their only point.
It might be early days but 15th in the table is unthinkable. Next two league games are home to Arsenal and away at leaders Everton.
Anything but maximum points from those two and the cries for Mauricio Pochettino will get ever louder.

I'm still backing Chelsea to finish above Manchester United.
Although Frank Lampard has plenty to sort out defensively, three cleans sheets in their last four outings is a clear sign of improvement.
Despite the other game in that period being a 3-3 draw with Southampton, Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell and Edouard Mendy already look to be solid acquisitions.
In addition - each of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic have plenty more to give this season, and even if only two of those can hit peak form, Chelsea will score bucketloads against lesser opponents.
Thomas Bristow - Manchester United
Whether they both finish in the top four is another question altogether. Manchester United, though, should be solid enough to finish above the Blues.
Lampard's new-look side will take some time to bed in and it could even be another season before they're playing at their full potential.
United, regardless of their disappointing transfer window, have a squad good enough to beat and be above Chelsea, as they proved last term.
More PSG performances as Solskjaer should scrape by.
Josh Peck - Chelsea
Manchester United have the midfield to dominate games, but they've had that for a while now and still struggled.
It's surely only a matter of time before Chelsea's new signings gel and we start to see the best from the likes of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz.
Frank Lampard also seems to be improving at a faster rate than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the Blues boss has the benefit of a Premier League season behind him now.
