  • 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.

  • Four minutes of added time to be played.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

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

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

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

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