Man. Utd v Sheffield United - as it happened
Thanks for joining me tonight. See you next time for more action.
FT: Manchester United 3-0 Sheffield United. A Martial hat-trick sees Manchester United win easily.
3 minutes added time.
Ighalo could have got a goal there for United but his effort was blocked by Moore.
An easy win for United here.
Well that was hard. 5 subs all at the same time!!!
Sheffield United have their first chance on target but it goes straight at De Gea.
United sub: Greenwood off for Mata.
United sub: Rashford off for James.
United sub: McTominay on for Fernandes.
United sub: Ighalo on for Martial.
United sub: Pogba off for Pereira.
United are about to bring on 5 subs at once!!!
What a goal. Martial passes to Rashford, he plays it back to the Frenchman and he chips the keeper. Easy.
Sheffield United haven't actually had any shots on target...
Greenwood has a shot from the edge of the box which goes well wide.
Shaw is booked for a foul on Lundstram.
Sheffield United sub: Zivkovic on for McGoldrick.
The cross comes in and Magure heads the ball quite far over.
Rashford has a shot from inside the box that goes well over. Was lovely skil from Pogba to get the ball in the build up.
If things stay the same when United will be just two points behind Chelsea and only six points behind Leicester. Chelsea have Man City on Thursday.
Greenwood has a deflected shot that goes just wide.
No chances so far in the second half.
Sheffield United sub: Mousset off for McBurnie.
Sheffield United sub: Norwood off for Berge.
And we're back!!!
HT: Man United 2-0 Sheffield United. United should be home and dry thanks to a double from Martial.
Greenwood has a weak shot from the edge of the box which goes straight at Moore.
3 minutes added time.
Almost similar to the last goal. This time Wan-Bissaka crosses in for Martial and he puts it in the net.
Things have gone a bit quiet recently.
Not been many clear-cut chances recently.
Lundstram has a very ambitious shot from far out which flies over the bar.
Sheffield United knocking the ball about well.
Still no chances for Sheffield United, United will be hoping to get a second.
The corner comes in and Maguire heads it in, but the Englishman is penalised for a foul on the defender.
Shaw is fouled for United. Fernandes hits the free-kick from a tight angle which goes straight at Moore who parries for a corner.
This is some lovely stuff from United. De Gea sets Rashford away, he plays it to Martial who plays it back to Rashford. The Englishman has an open net but the defender puts him off and can't connect well and it goes wide.
Sheffield United are camped in their own half. It's all United at the moment.
I see United scoring more here. They are playing some good stuff.
And Martial makes it 1-0. Rashford takes it to the byline and drills it in for Martial who knocks it in the net.
Now it's United's turn to do all the attacking.
Sheffield United have started well so far.
Players take the knee and we're off.
Minute silence for Tony Dunne, Manchester United legend.
UNITED ARE BACK AT OLD TRAFFORD!!!!
Sheffield United players are out.
Beautiful day for a football match.
So what do we think the score will be then? Belay_tadess was quick with his prediction and said that United will win 3-1.
Manchester United are currently 5th in the league, while Sheffield United are 8th. 2 points separate the sides and if City are banned from next season's UCL then 8th will make Europe. That is of course if the FA Cup winners already make Europe.
The last match between these sides ended in a 3-3 draw. United haven't lost to Sheffield United since 1993. The Blades haven't beaten the Red Devils in the league since 1992. Sheffield United haven't won at Old Trafford since 1973.
Perhaps the big news is that Pogba and Bruno Fernandes both start together for the first time. United have some team with Rashford also playing. I'm very intrigued to see how they for on especially as Sheffield United lost 3-0 to Newcastle in their last match.
Sheffield United XI: Moore, Basham, Robinson, Jagielka, Baldock, Fleck, Norwood, Lundstram, Stevens, McGoldrick, Mousset.
Manchester United XI: De Gea, Wan Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Pogba, Matic, Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Rashford, Martial.
Hello and welcome to Old Trafford for this match between Manchester United and Sheffield United. It's a huge match as both teams are looking to get into Europe next season. Team news to come.
