  • Thanks for joining me and make sure you're back for live Europa League coverage tomorrow night. In the meantime, we'll have a match report and reaction on site soon. Good night.

  • And that's it! United hang on for a point in a game which saw both sides produce one good chance and take it. Without Rooney, that's a decent result for Moyes and four points from two Champions League games is a good start.

  • We're into the second of two added minutes and on balance we're on the way to a fair result. Jones comes on to kill time, replacing Welbeck.

  • Pyatov punches the corner clear and after Rafael goes down but gets nothing, Shakhtar again break. Bernard now comes on having been forced to wait a moment ago.

  • However, it's United who launch an attack and van Persie expertly ensures a corner.

  • A double change for Shakhtar as Bernard replaces Adriano and Ferreyra also comes on.

  • More possession play for Shakhtar but they don't really have the option to launch it forward, such has been the visitors' aerial dominance.

  • United enjoy a rare attack and Rafael's left-footed free-kick isn't a bad one, but no United player is prepared to gamble and Shakhtar can clear.

  • Costa charges past Rafael but the ball rolls out as Shakhtar prepare another change.

  • Fine save from De Gea as Taison lashes a cross into the United box which is deflected towards the United goal and is expertly tipped over. Shakhtar's first corner results in another which is hacked skywards before De Gea can collect.

  • Rafael is arguably a touch fortunate not to go in the book for a foul on Shevchuk, which allows Fernando to make way for Ilsinho.

  • Taison, the hosts' best player, finds Teixeira but Rafael tackles him and find Giggs, who is then brought down by Taison.

  • There's a side you don't often see in a Champions League game - a Mexican wave. Anyway, it reflects a brief lull as United reorganise well.

  • Smalling concedes a throw as Shakhtar continue to probe. Vidic then rises to clear a long ball.

  • Carrick spreads it to Evra as United try to quiet the crowd and they do so reasonably well, allowing Smalling and Vidic to enjoy a touch before Rafael clears long.

  • Throw for Shakhtar deep inside the United half as Vidic steps across to cut out a long ball.

  • Welbeck gives it away and Teixeira breaks. Credit to Welbeck though because it's he who breaks down the attack having tracked back.

  • Smalling is forced to clear as Costa tries to cross from the left. Shakhtar have their tails up.

  • GOAL! Taison (76)! Finally a Shakhtar ball causes chaos in the United box and it's thanks to Rakitskiy, who gallops forward to inject life into his side's effort. It falls to Taison and he blasts high into the net. Two goals from nothing and it's 1-1.

  • I dare say this containing job is pretty easy for United now, with Shakhtar running out of ideas. Changes are surely imminent.
