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
...
60' Swansea make a substitution of their own - Leroy Fer is on for Ki. 
...
58' Lingard tries to make something happen with a run straight through the heart of the pitch, but it all ends up with nada but a Swansea throw in. Bailly is now limping off to be replaced by Matteo Darmian. OH MY! This is not good for United. Not good at all. 
...
57' He seems to be okay for the moment and United continue to pass the ball around with far greater comfort than in the first 45
...
55' Eric Bailly is down after a collision with Fernando Llorente. Jose will be praying it's just pain from slamming into the walking barn door that is the Basque
...
54' United take it upon themselves to ping the ball amongst themselves for a while. Lingard then tries to wriggle in between Mawson and Fernandes, but the ball runs away from him. This is all much better from United
...
53' Rashford has shown excellent game-awareness today. This time he relieves pressure by winning a good foul off Fernandes near the halfway line
...
52' Rashford pushes and runs behind Naughton but his initial push had just too much oomph on it. 
...
51' Naughton flies past Young and the senior Englishman's 'revenge' tackle merits a yellow but he doesn't really get one. Glyfi swings it in but this one's well defended by United. 
...
49' OH HO HO! WAYNE ROONEY! He started it with some excellent bit of string-pulling that released Herrera on the right. The Basque pulled it back for his captain to leather it - but Anthony Martial is in his way!! WHAT A CHANCE!
...
46' Swansea start off where they let off in the first half and start passing the ball around in their pleasing manner - till Jordan Ayew strays offside
...
PEEP! We're off again!
...
...
PEEP! PEEP! HALFTIME!

Manchester United go into the break up a goal, but they've done absolutely nothing to deserve it. "Luck" as Mourinho would put it has been on their side, though, and Wayne Rooney's penalty could well usher the brave Swans deeper down into the mire that is the relegation zone.
...
Unjustified considering the moment and the duration of the first 45... but that was a perfect penalty. 
...
48' GOOOOOOOOOOAL! WAYNE ROONEY!
...
Marcus Rashford dives. No two ways about it. Fabianski comes out to stop the speeding Englishman... tries to pull out and succeeds in doing so. But it's a penalty....
...
47' PENALTY FOR MANCHESTER UNITED!
...
46' TWO MINUTES ADDED ON. I have just one question... why? Mourinho's already trudging his way into the dressing room.....but WAIT!
...
45' Martial wakes me, and 70,000 in Old Trafford, up with another surging run down the left. He wins a corner, which amounts to the square root of nothing. Which is still nothing. 
...
44' Naughton tries to outmuscle Young on the Swansea right, but his effort comes to 'naught'. Get it? Naughton.. naught... sorry. It's this game, it's getting to me. 
...
43' Yellow for Lingard for a petulant, and rather mean, tackle on Jordan Ayew. Tom Carroll stands over the freekick
...
42' Lingard smashes one at goal -and why not - but it swerves well wide of Fabianski's far post. Worth the try, though. Especially since there's nothing else going for United in attack
...
40' Sigurdsson pickpockets Lingard and tries to play in Llorente, but Bailly steps in athletically and United counter - their movement forward, though, lacks any sort of conviction - and when Valencia finally smashes one into the box, it's easily cleared. The counter was so slow in fact that Llorente's got back to teach Martial a thing or two about winning the ball in the air. The Frenchman is down, but it's nothing some magic spray can't fix
...
38' Swansea are outpassing Manchester United like they're Xavi's Barcelona or something. One can certainly understand why Old Trafford has gone as quiet as a church on Sunday morning. 
...
36' Swansea's football is so very pleasing on the eye. A loose touch from Ayew, who's just not on the same wavelength as his strike partner, gifts possession back to United - but Fernandes is fouled by a desperate Rashford... and we're back to square one.
