PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEP! THAT, THEN IS VERY MUCH THAT. 

MANCHESTER UNITED 3 - 0 STOKE CITY! And that's an important three points for United as they put a touch of daylight between themselves and the chasing pack behind them, while they atleast cut the difference to City to 12 points
...
93' Pogba smacks it into row Z
...
92' McTominay is brought down at the edge of the box and Pogba is going to look to put the cherry on top of the proverbial cake. 
...
91' Nothing. 
...
90' The corner comes to nothing, but Matic robs Shaqiri and feeds Rashford, but the young man can only find Butland with his weak shot. TWO MINUTES TO BE ADDED ON
...
89' Lukaku drops deep and plays another impeccable cross into the box that Pogba looks to be getting on the end of - till Zouma nicks in and head brilliantly away. 
...
88' Pass-pass-pass go Manchester United as Jose Mourinho's men Jose Mourinho the game to its inevitable conclusion. 
...
86' OH MY! THE COMEDY! Smalling and Shaw get in each other's way as they try to handle Shaqiri's ball into Diouf. The former United man controls the ball really well, but his shot is saved well by De Gea - and he puts the rebound wide
...
83' OOOOO LA LA! Pogba dances his way through midfield, and plays in Valencia down the right. The Captain pulls it back into the box where Rashford tries an audacious behind-his-legs flick that is well saved by Butland
...
82' Final change for United as Mata departs to a standing ovation and young Scott McTominay bounds on in his stead
...
80' Pogba and Mata are doing what they will here. The two play a one-two inside Stoke's box but Mata's ball into the box is poor. Corner, which is subsequently wasted
...
79' Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard depart, Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini arrive. Just what Stoke needed - the pace of Rashford and the aerial unplayability of Fellaini. 
...
78' United are toying with Stoke as the form triangle-after-triangle down their left flank. Pogba, then, gets fed up and swings in a delicious ball that Mata somehow directs goalward - where it bounces off the post!
...
75' United caress the ball around the park - everyone touching the ball, and it looks like something special is in the offing... but Martial's loose, lazy, touch is an anti-climax
...
74' Manchester United are having a ball now. And Stretford End is loving every bit of it. 
...
Shaqiri's hopeless ball is cut out by Pogba, who feeds Lingard. The Englishman races at Stoke before laying it off to Martial. The Frenchman rifles it at Lukaku, who kills the ball dead - holds off Martins-Indi and Wimmer with the ease of a grown man holding toffee above small children, turns them both with absurd ease, and smashes it in at the near post. 
...
72' GOOOOOOOOOOAL! LUKKKKAAAAAAAAAKKKUUU!
...
71' The rain has intensified and Stoke's misery is intensified....
...
70' Lukaku at full tilt is a scary sight. He careens into the Stoke third with three men in blue trailing him like those annoying cans behind a Hollywood honeymoon car before massively overhitting his through ball to Martial 
...
69' Sobhi does likewise at the other end. Meanwhile, the inimitable Crouch is taken off for the pace of former United lad Mame Biram Diouf. 
...
68' Mata plays the freekick out to Shaw who whacks into back to Southampton from 30 yards out
...
67' Ireland plows into Mata - and it's a yellow. No fuss from the Gentleman that is Mata and the ref is spared the dilemma of whether to flash a red. 
...
66' WOOOF! Lukaku runs at Wimmer, two stepovers leaving the former Spurs man looking at the wrong man, before he smashes a right footed shot at goal - which Butland does well to save. Lingard volleys the rebound at goal, and Mata tucks it in, but he's a mile offside. 
...
65' OH! MATA! OH MATA! Luke Shaw does superbly to hold off Allen and Bauer before playing the ball into the box where Lingard brilliantly holds it up - and Mata can only blaze it over from six yards!
...
64' AIY AIY AIY! Another interesting looking United counter is wasted as Matic sweeps a careless ball behind Martial and out of play
