PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEP!

Another day, another draw. What a frightfully dull match that was to cover. United are still unbeaten - but it somehow doesn't feel anything like it. 

Gylfi Sigurdsson's magic right foot could just keep Swansea in the Premier League. 

That's that, then. Anirudh Menon signing out. 

Toodle-ooo
...
95' Llorente almost steals the ball off Blind's toes somewhere in the centre of the park - thing is the Dutchman was the last man back for United! Ashley Young flies down the left and tries to swing it in - but nada. 
...
94' Kingsley goes down under pressure from Rashford, but the ref asks him to stop whining and get on with it.
...
93' Martial and Rashford pull the trigger, but are not allowed to go all the way by some desperate defending. They win a corner - but the delivery is rubbish
...
91' SIX MINUTES ADDED ON! Fer takes out Herrera and the ball with a slide in from behind, but the ref overlooks the taking-out-opposing-player bit.
...
90'  United give away another freekick in return, and Gylfi swings it in..... OH MY LORD! HOW DID FERNANDO LLORENTE NOT BURY THAT! Swansea should be in front!
...
89' It's one of those cross-shot hybrids that troubles no one in particular.
...
88' Martial is cleared out by Fernandez and United have a freekick on the edge of the Swansea box. Marcus Rashford stands over it
...
86' Ashley Young curls it in, but Mawson heads it away with contemptous ease. Mawson and Fernandes will be happy to deal with that all day long - especially with Fellaini and Ibrahimovic both not there. 
...
85' Tom Carroll tries a longer ranger - but whizzes a couple of inches over De Gea's crossbar. 
...
84' Swansea are drawing United deeper and deeper into their territory - and that may not be the wisest decision. Young teases Naughton and curls in a right footer from the left - Lingard gets his head to it but its too meek to trouble Fabianksi
...
82' Martial and Jesse Lingard connect in the middle of the pitch, but the latter's touch has well and truly deserted him today. The pass out to Rashford is a ridiculously overhit
...
81' OH! OH! Martial tries to curl on from outside the box, but it swerves wildly wide. 
...
80' The culprit for the foul, Wayne Rooney is hooked for Henrikh Mkhitaryan. 
...
WHAT A FREEKICK. WHAT A GOAL. WHAT AN EQUALISER! Curls into the top corner - unsaveable.
...
78' GOOOOOOOOOOOAL!! SIGURDSSON!
...
77' Wayne Rooney gives away a silly foul by barging into Jordan Ayew just outside his own box. This is prime Gylfi territory
...
75' WOOF!!! Valencia smashes one at Fabianski after some neat play by Rooney and Herrera - and Swansea counters at pace! Ayew releases Llorente into the box where he tees up Sigurdsson but the Icelandic's snapshot is way off target
...
74' Swansea hit it forward. Manchester United hit back. The Welsh hand back possession immediately. Seriously. Story of this half
...
71' Martin Olsson comes on in his stead as Sigurdsson lines up a corner. Wayne Rooney smacks it away with superb defensive header. Ashley Young and Olsson then smash into each other and despite concerns, both of them are alright
...
69' OUCH! Jefferson Montero is wiped out by his compatriot Valencia, and he looks like that's it from him. This is going downhill, and rapidly, for Paul Clement. 
...
67' Valencia motors forward in typical bustling fashion, but his cross is  going nowhere. Carrick then tries to play in Lingard, but Alfie Mawson is in his way. 
...
63' Jefferson Montero is on now as Swansea do what they have to do - get the kitchen sink out of the kitchen and onto the Old Trafford turf
...
62' United are gaining in confidence now. Rashford finds his way into the box but his cross is wayward. Swansea move forward but Carroll's cross in to Llorente is a bit too much
...
61' Martial barrels into the box before smashing one at Fabianski - the Pole does well to keep it out - of goal, and of the reach of the onrushing strikers
