0 - 0
West Bromwich Albion
...
PEEP! PEEP! FULLTIME!

That's that
...
94' Rooney gets pulled up for a foul of an exceptionally frustrated man. Fellaini then goes into the book for a petulant shove on Yacob. Rooney then gets one for talking too much
...
93' West Brom win a freekick in their own half fro a rash Young challenge... and that ends up with James Morrison crossing one out of the stadium
...
92' Rooney wastes a good bit of possession by crossing it straight at Foster...
...
91' FOUR MINUTES ADDED ON! Jesse Lingard hammers one at goal, McAuley pulls off what must be his millionth block of the game
...
89' Anthony Martial is overpowered by Craig Dawson - and Carrick then sends a ball sailing into the Stretford End..  United's frustration is showing now.
...
88' RASHFORD ALMOST ARROWS THAT INTO THE TOP CORNER!! BEN FOSTER PULLS OFF AN UNBELIEVABLE SAVE!!! WOW! The corner is rubbish
...
87' Jake Livermore takes out Ashley Young and it's a free kick for United....
...
86' David De Gea almost cushions a Darren Fletcher shot INTO THE UNITED GOAL! THAT WAS A MASSIVE LAPSE OF CONCENTRATION FROM THE SPANIARD, AND IT WAS THE CROSSBAR THAT CAME TO HIS RESCUE
...
84' Rooney lifts a delightful ball into the box but Lingard can't get his shot away.... Rondon then does excellently to win a foul off Rojo 
...
82' Carrick pings one into the far post where Fellaini knocks it down... to no one in particular. Rashford than smacks a curler well, well, wide
...
80' Nyom careens into Lingard and its a foul - he really ought to be more careful
...
79' Rooney almost comes with a touch of magic as he plays a one-two with Martial that lets the Frenchman rampage into the box... but he barges McCauley over. 
...
77' Rondon and Bailly engage in some riff-raff and Mike Dean gives a drop ball that Fellaini and Livermore almost pulverise... but West Brom win possession, which they squander with their very next pass
...
76' Young skins Dawson and races into the box where Johny Evans ALMOST slots it into his own net. That was so very close!!! The corner, and its subsequent attack, comes to nothing
...
75' WAS THAT HANDBALL?? McAuley tries to Cruyff turn inside his box, and it looked for all the world like it was a penalty!
...
74' Marcos Rojo bullies Solomon Rondo straight back as he sees off the Venezuelan as he gets through on goal. Rooney trots on to huge cheers as he replaces Mkhitaryan
...
73' Rondo bullies Bailly before slipping it through to Brunt - but United recover (Young with a good header away) - and the home side are on the front foot again.
...
71' OW! MARCUS RASHFORD!!! THE YOUNG MAN UNLEASHES FROM THIRTY YARDS AND IT TAKES A SUPERB HAND FROM BEN FOSTER TO KEEP IT SCORELESS!
...
70' The cotrner is rubbish, but United have the back straight away...
...
69' Johny Evans slides into one-time teammate Antonio Valencia as United win a corner. Solomon Rondon replaces Hal Robson-Kanu, that should keep Bailly and Rojo on their toes
...
68' Rashford tries to take on Nyom, but the defender's superior body strength ensures that the young forward can do nothing. 
...
67' Chadli is taken off for Claudio Yacob as Tony Pulis drops any pretense of seeking anything more than a 0-0
...
66' Gareth McAuley makes a huge mistake as he smacks a clearance at Mkhitaryan.. BUT THE ARMENIAN SHOOTS STRAIGHT AT FOSTER! THAT WAS A HUGE CHANCE!!!
...
65' Anthony Martial curls in a lovely little ball, but it evades Rashford by a couple of inches! That was so close!! 
...
64' Another United corner... but McAuley sees of Fellaini, United still have the ball though..
...
63' Jess Lingard whips down the left and chip wedges a ball into the far post, that Brunt heads away for a corner. They take it short, but it's easily headed away by McAuley. 
...
62' West Brom are, for the moment, excellently seeing this out as a 0-0 draw. 
...
60' Johny Evans tries to Franz Beckenbauer the ball out.... and he's lucky that Lingard's tackle is a touch too late. 
...
59' West Brom win a bit of breather as United squander possession twice in quick situation. 
...
56' The pressure is bordering on the incessant now. Anthony Martial smacks a swerving shot that goes out inches wide. Woof. James Morrison comes on for his 300th PL appearance 
...
55' UUUUUUFFF!!! Tremendous from United as Rashford and Lingard opens up the West Brom defence but Mkhitaryan can't get the shot away, Fellaini then smacks the ball well wide. This is exactly what United should be doing - West Brom's immense back four are in real trouble when the ball is passed around with such zest 
...
54' Martial takes on Dawson on the outside and smacks a superb left footed cross into the box, but McAuley is there YET again!
...
52' Martial skips past Dawson and proceeds to pitch wedge a ball into the stands. What a waste - from both teams
...
51' The corner is atypically rubbish and United counter...
...
50' This is brilliant from West Brom as Nacer Chadli slips in Craig Dawson as the right back ghosts past Ashley Young. He squares it to Fletcher who's shot is blocked by Bailly!
...
49' Under extreme pressure from Valencia Nyom plays the ball straight to Rashford who shows superb quick feet to work an inch of space in the box. His shot, though, is blocked by Evans. and Carrick's follow up meets the same fate. Old Trafford roars its appreciation of that passage of play
...
48' Lingard curls one into the middle, but Evans does superbly to position himself in the correct spot to head the ball away from its intended target - Rashford. 
...
47' UFFF!! WHAT A CHALLENGE DAWSON! Some slick, extra quick one-touch passing between Martial and Mkhitaryan almost releases Martial for a shot in the box before the West Brom right-back gets a superb tackle in. 
...
46' 75% possesion, and not a shot on target - the story of United's half that. Ben Foster almost loses his footing in his own box, but recovers in time to keep the ball away from Mkhitaryan. Nyom , mewanhwile, goes into the ref's naughty book for a late, late, tackle on Carrick.
