  • Well, I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have, and here's wishing you all a great rest of your Sunday! Until we meet again next season! Cheers all!

  • And that's it! And unbelievable game at the Hawthorns has ended West Brom 5, Manchester United 5! It's probably not the farewell Sir Alex Ferguson had been hoping for, but it was a thrilling encounter none the less, and will live on in the memory for many, many years to come!

  • So close for Albion now as Chris Brunt's delivery almost picks out the head of Marc-Antoine Fortune, but the ball just flies over him and behind for a goal-kick.

  • Robin van Persie thinks he should have a penalty after going down from pressure by Gareth McAuley while attempting a shot, although the referee is having none of it and rightfully waves play-on.

  • There's be four minutes added on here for one of these sides to find what would be a sensational winner on the final day of the Premier League season.

  • We're entering the final stages of this game, and is there to be even more late drama?

  • You cannot make this stuff up! Unbelievable scenes here as Romelu Lukaku completes a second-half hat-trick to level the scores at 5-5! IT was another substitute, Marc-Antoine Fortune, who set to goal-up, cushioning a deep delivery down into the path of his team-mate, who eventually managed to bundle the ball over the line after his initial shot had been saved point-blank.

  • GOAL! West Brom 5-5 Manchester United! Romelu Lukaku!

  • Unbelievable scenes here at the Hawthorns, and West Brom are on the verge of a stunning comeback. It's two goals in 60 seconds for the hosts, with Romelu Lukaku scoring the first with a lovely finish into the bottom corner after being played in behind the defence, while Youssouf Mulumbu then makes it 4-5 with a low finish following some intricate build-up on the edge of the area. Eight minutes remaining in this one, and are we in for the unbelievable? I wouldn't rule it out, you know.

  • GOAL! West Brom 4-5 Manchester United! Youssouf Mulumbu!

  • GOAL! West Brom 3-5 Manchester United! Romelu Lukaku!

  • Billy Jones goes on a barn-storming run through the middle of the park to set himself up for a decent chance from the edge of the area, but he gets his shot all wrong and hits the ball down into the ground, allowing Anders Lindegaard to make a simple save.

  • Double change for Albion now as Marc-Antoine Fortune comes on for James Morrison, while Shane Long makes way for Markus Rosenberg.

  • Alexander Buttner is having an excellent game this afternoon, and he's just clipped the crossbar now with a cross that was intended for the far-post, while Antonio Valencia is only able to skew the rebound miles wide, despite having found himself with plenty of time and space to shoot.

  • The hosts have become very quiet here in the last couple, although as I write that they come within an inch of scoring a third, James Morrison pulling the ball back for Romelu Lukaku, who looks to send another pin-point effort into the far-corner, but this time he's just off as his first-time hit fizzes the wrong side of the up-right.

  • Up and the other end and it should be 6-2 to United as they break three-on-two, with Van Persie clipping the ball over to the unmarked Javier Hernandez, who in turn tries to set the ball down for Paul Scholes, but the Mexican has not been at his best this afternoon and that shows now as his attempted cushion down flies off his boot and behind for a goal-kick.

  • Romelu Lukaku tries for the spectacular now as he lines up a free-kick some 35 yards out, but he doesn't quite get the right connection and scuffs his shot wide of the target.

  • The Manchester United fans, and West Brom ones alike, rise to their feet to give Paul Scholes a huge round of applause as he takes to the field for his final game for the Red Devils. Shinji Kagawa is the man he replaces, with the Japan international having put in another impressive display in the middle of the park.

  • Jonas Olsson has a golden chance to make up for his earlier own-goal as he finds himself completely unmarked at the far-post to get on the end of a deep delivery, but he somehow contrives to lift the ball over the bar from just a foot or two out from goal. An almost unimaginable miss from the defender, who hasn't exactly enjoyed the best game of the season today.

  • This really has been a devastating attacking display from Manchester United, and a five-star farewell for Sir Alex Ferguson, who is beaming down on the touchline, and rightfully so.
