  • Hernandez tries to take off on attack, but to no avail as the final whistle blow.

  • United running the clock down on the left of the park, but Stoke are having none of it and rush the hosts off the ball.

  • Adam, again, tries to sneak his cross for Crouch behind Ferdinand, but De Gea comes across to pluck the ball out of the air.

  • As the match enters the final few moments of the match, the linesman signals three added minutes.

  • Rather quiet in the second period, Adam delivers a decent ball for Crouch in the box, but Evans is up to the task and beat the towering frontman to ball.

  • Nani and Van Persie try to link up on attack but Marc Wilson still has his wits about and cuts off the movement.

  • There's a quiet satisfaction around Old Trafford at the moment as the home faithful expect to close out this encounter the victors.

  • Whitehead departs with Wilson Palacios earning a late run-on.

  • Etherington with a run down the left and he tries to whip the ball into the box, only for Rafael to block the cross and hand the visitors a corner-kick.

  • Stoke in possession but at this late stage of the match is unlikely they have the energy or will-power to summon a fight-back.

  • Nani with a sharp dash down the right with Rooeny waiting for the cross at the near post, but Huth shuffles back and cuts off the substitute winger.

  • United not taking any chances and are just passing the ball around on the halfway line.

  • Ferdinand clears the initial free-kick but Stoke are camped inside United's half with a back-to-back corner-kicks.

  • Ferdinand is adjudged to have fouled Crouch and Stoke receive an attacking free-kick late on.

  • The Red Devils playing the percentages as the try to keep the ball on the halfway line while still probing for an opening in the Potters' tired defence.

  • Welbeck leaves the field to a standing ovation with Hernandez going the other way.

  • United, once again, on the attack and are looking to bring Nani's fresh legs into the game more.

  • Nani with a saved shot at the near post after Evra took the ball forward and laid it off for the replacement winger, but the Portuguese was ruled offside anyway.

  • Evra pushing up from the left, but he is shepherded into the middle of the park and his brief attacking thrust is quelled.

  • Kightly comes off for former United striker Owen, while Valencia earns a break with Nani taking to the field.
