Post.
So, that's that at Old Trafford. A narrow win for Manchester United in a very entertaining game that seemed to have absolutely everything. A superb Sam Johnstone performance meant the score stayed at 1-0 but West Brom too had their chances. A lucky escape for Solsjkaer's side who looked shaky throughout but do at least come away with the three points.
95'
FT: Manchester United 1-0 West Bromwich Albion.
94'
Robson-Kanu's flick is straight to Maguire and that might just be it for the Baggies.
93'
Cleared away by West Brom - is there one more chance for them in this one?

Cavani is booked for a late lunge.
91'
United are managing to hold possession, putting and end to that end-to-end chaos from a few minutes ago.

Matic is down injured but I'm not sure if it is genuine or not - he will certainly be ok to carry on.
89'
Martial counters and wins the free-kick just past half-way off an outraged Bartley.
88'
McTominay wins a free-kick. Another chance for United to slow down play. Bilic is furious on the sidelines and there is no doubt that the Red Devils have got all of the decisions this evening.

West Brom come again, but the ball dribbles painfully out of play beyond Furlong.

Brilliant Rashford switch for Martial and eventually the ball falls to Fernandes on the edge via a Fred flick on but the Portuguese midfielder sees his shot smothered and heaved away.

Taken short and then eventually falls for Telles to volley miles over the bar from outside the box. Hilariously bad from him.
