94'
FT: Man Utd 3-1 Newcastle!! All over at Old Trafford and the scoreline flatters the home side. Saint-Maximin had cancelled out Rashford's goal in the first half goal and the Magpies had actually started the second half really well. However, Daniel James put United ahead against the run of play and then a Bruno Fernandes penalty after Willock brought dwon Rashford killed off any chance of a comeback.
93'
Willock picks out Murphy, but his pass for Shelvey is overhit and the chance goes.
92'
United just keeping the ball here and I think both teams know this is over.
90'
Three extra minutes.
88'
Man Utd double sub: Mata and 17 year-old Shoretire come on for James and Rashford.
86'
Little to report here in the last few minutes.

82'
James slips as he crosses the ball, but he still gets a corner.

Newcastle sub: Gayle on for Almiron.
77'
Newcastle sub: Murphy on for Saint-Maximin.
76'
I can't see Newcastle getting back into this one now.
76'
Greenwood goes for goal now and it goes just wide.
75'
Newcastle are still unhappy about the penalty award, but that was never going to be overturned.
75'
Fernandes scores!!! He hits it to the keeper's right and Darlow just jumps forward.
74'
Penalty to Man Utd!! Willock catches Rashford on the foot and it's a penalty. I think Willock may slip, but it's still a pen.

70'
Man Utd sub: Greenwood comes on for Martial.
68'
Fraser has a pop now, but the effort all along the ground is regulation for the GK.
66'
United go forward again and Newcastle stop the effort by James.
64'
Rashford goes for goal and it's straight at Darlow.
62'
Free-kick to the Magpies here after Lascelles is fouled.
60'
James is penalised now for a foul.
59'
Martial!!! He gets into the box and his shot is tipped by Darlow behind for a corner.
58'
Newcastle don't deserve to be losing this one at all.
57'

HT: Man Utd 1-1 Newcastle!! Half-time at Old Trafford and it's a fair scoreline. Rashford put United in front after 30 minutes with almost their first chance of the game, but Saint-Maximin levelled just six minutes later. Bruce's men have been positive from the off and have been the better side in the first 45. Joelinton, Almiron and Saint-Maximin could have all easily scored. United have offered little going forward. Back shortly!

Saint-Maximin scores to level!! The corner is taken short, Willock's ball in is headed by Maguire straight to Saint-Maximin who hits it on the half-volley into the back of the net! Fully deserved.
35'
Saint-Maximin!!!! The Newcastle forward hits one from outside the area and De Gea makes a terrific save to tip over.
35'
Krafth is given the ball on this near touchline and his low cross is knocked behind for a corner, Newcastle's third.
32'
Free-kick to the Magpies after Fred commits a foul 30 yards from goal.
32'
It's not really deserved, but that's what top teams do.
30'
Rashford puts United ahead!! Rashford is given the ball on this near side, he beats Krafth, gets into the box, cuts inside and then beats Darlow at his near post. Right in the corner, but the GK will be disappointed to be beaten there. He gets a hand to it, but it still goes in, Good goal.
29'
