  • Tom Cleverley's winning goal sees Manchester United through in a throughly entertaining game with Newcastle, who had chances aplenty to rescue the game or even produce victory at Old Trafford. Thanks for your company and I'll see you all soon.

  • FULL TIME. Manchester United 2 Newcastle United 1

  • Ferguson crosses in from the left but it's a poor cross, and despite Cisse's best efforts to create space for himself, it's a Man United goal kick.

    90+3
  • Four minutes of added time to be played.

    90+1
  • Booking for Bigirimimana as the midfielder trying to intercept Man United's passing with a rough challenge on Welbeck.

    90
  • United continue to attack but it's slightly laboured as they now look to hold up the ball with some neat passing from the hosts' midfield.

    89
  • Anderson spreads the ball to Hernandez, doing well to control it initially but incredibly it's Cisse who travels back to dispossess the Mexican and win back the ball for Newcastle.

    88
  • Brady's first touch is a good one, but Cleverley is dispossessed and Newcastle attack with Gosling poking straight into De Gea's arms when the goal was gaping.

    87
  • Man United make their final sub as Buttner comes off for Brady.

    86
  • Keane takes a knock in a crunching tackle with Obertan while Buttner is also down as receives treatment from the medics.

    84
  • This really has been a terrific game despite both teams' weakedned sides and don't rule out a grandstand finale here as both teams continue to threaten in their opponents' final thirds.

    83
  • Cisse hits the bar! The striker shows his unpredictablility and class as he creates a chance for himself before unleashing an overhead kick that rattles the woodwork.

    81
  • Ameobi fumes as he claims a corner off Keane and the striker is right to fume as replays show Man United are let off the hook there.

    80
  • A link-up between Powell and Cleverley is scuppered, with Gosling taking play forward for Newcastle as Wootton clears away Obertan's delivery.

    79
  • Cisse looks to power his way through Man United's back-line, with Tunnicliffe immediately called into play to clear the hosts' lines.

    78
  • A double change now for Man United as Rooney comes off for Powell and Vermijl is replaced by Tunnicliffe.

    76
  • Bigirimana looks for Ferguson but his control isn't the best and Man United win a throw-in on the right side.

    75
  • Buttner looks for Welbeck but Perch beats the striker to the punch. Moments later, Gosling goes for goal and is incredible close to levelling the scores. A wonderful effort from the midfielder.

    74
  • A wonderful battle between Buttner and Obertan results in a Newcastle throw-in. Tavernier takes but Rooney ends up taking control and the hosts break before Hernandez's interesting ball ends up behind goal.

    72
  • Tiote makes way for Newcastle with Bigirimana the man coming on in his place for Newcastle.
