    • Manchester United
    • Sevilla FC
    • And that it the final whistle as it ends in disappointment for David Moyes and Rio Ferdinand. Thanks for joining us.
    • 90+2' A free kick against Giggs but again that looked harsh.
    • 90+1' We have three added minutes as Sevilla nearly make it four! Poor finish from Jairo.
    • 90' GOAL Sevilla! It’s a simple ball and a neat finish from Rabello. All over now.
    • 89' Sevilla winding down the clock, Carrick is not happy and tells them to get on with it.
    • 88' Well that could easily have been 2-2 and probably wouldn’t have done United justice. Still time though. A heavy touch from Fabio and it’s a goal kick.
    • 87' Great chance for Zaha as it opens up for him. He gets in a good position but fires just wide of the goal. Should have made Beto work.
    • 86' Great ball from Giggs to Januzaj and he wins a corner. Beto comes and punches clear under pressure from Smalling.
    • 85' Guarente takes and De Gea plucks it out of the air. United launch an attack but Beto has it.
    • 84' Sevilla win a free kick and are in no hurry to take it with the clock ticking. Buttner is not amused.
    • 83' United quick on the counter again but Januzaj flagged offside this time. Still time, especially the way United are now playing.
    • 82' United sub: Ferdinand off for Evans. A standing ovation for the United defender on his testimonial.
    • 81' How did Puerto miss! Guerente shoots, De Gea blocks into Puerto’s path but somehow he pokes wide. Should have been three.
    • 80' Sevilla sub: Medal off for Guerente.
    • 79' Three chances for United to score in the space of a few seconds. A shame it’s taken so long.
    • 78' Zaha is through on the keeper but the angle is tight and Beto saves. Januzaj plays it to Buttner and his shot is saved! Carrick then fires in a shot that Beto saves again!
    • 77' Sevilla substitution: Bacca off for Rabello.
    • 76' Sevilla preparing to make another substitution.
    • 75' Giggs plays it wide to Fabio and his cross just evades the stretching Lingard! Memories of Gazza against Germany in Euro 96 there!
    • 74' United now looking the more likely team with just over 15 minutes remaining. The crowd urges them on.
    • 73' Almost a great ball from Carrick to Lingard who stretched on the edge of the box but couldn’t quite get hold of it. Buttner fires a cross shot over.
    • 72' Sevilla camped in the United half. Bacca shoots over. Will Moyes start his Old Trafford career with defeat?
    • 71' Sevilla sub: Vitolo off for Jairo
    • 70' Good ball from Januzaj into Lingard but the header is out for a goal kick. Januzaj has been one of the few highlights for United.
    • 69' Lingard now on the left hand side with Giggs and Januzaj playing the furthest forward.
    • 68' Bacca searches for an Old Trafford goal but it’s great defending for Phil Jones and he draws the free kick.
    • 67' Will a little tiredness now creep in for Sevilla? It’s their second match in as many nights.
    • 66' That was Anderson’s last contribution as he came off. That’s the spark United needed. Kagawa also came off.
    • 65' United substitution. Giggs, Carrick and Zaha all on.
    • 64' GOAL United! Januzaj sees his first effort blocked but he collects the rebound to square to Valencia who slots home. Game on!
    • 63' Here comes Wilfred Zaha! He’ll be on after the next stoppage.
    • 62' Lingard nearly wriggles into a position to shoot. Valencia then lays it back to him and his shot is blocked. Better.
    • 61' United still struggling to build up a head of steam tonight. At least Rio’s children in the crowd are enjoying this!
    • 60' Anderson drives to the edge of the box but it’s a great tackle from Kondognbia. Half an hour to rescue this.
    • 59' If this was a typical league game at Old Trafford you’d expect some booing by now. But it’s Rio’s testimonial and he gets some more applause for a nice little pass.
    • 58' Another great touch from Marin for Vitolo. He plays it back to Marin who drags a shot across goal. More danger from the midfielder.
    • 57' Another little chip from Marin who tries to find Bacca. It doesn’t come off this time but the on loan Chelsea man has played a little blinder so far.
    • 56' More urgency now from United. A sustained spell in the Sevilla half.
    • 55' Sevilla substitution: Pareja off for Puerto.
    • 54' Kagawa thinks about the shot but plays it wide to Valencia. Nobody there for the cross. The end product just hasn’t been there.
    • 53' Another probing ball just drifts across the face of the United goal and Vitolo can’t get on the end of it. De Gea grabs it.
    • 52' Great ball from Anderson to Valencia and he wins a corner. Sevilla clear their lines.
    • 51' Januzaj has the same birthday as Cristiano Ronaldo but he’s ten years younger! What United wouldn’t give to have him back!
    • 50' Better from United! Anderson finds Januzaj on the left and he curls an effort just over.
    • 48' Sevilla still looking comfortable on the ball. There just hasn’t been enough pressing from United. Kagawa robs Kondognbia and looks to be free on goal but the referee blows for a tug back. Looked harsh!
    • 47' Carrick, Bebe and Zaha also attacking options off the bench, as is Giggs. Buttner down injured but gets up again.
    • 46' Moyes looks a concerned man but he always has that kind of look on his face!
    • 45' We’re back underway here at Old Trafford. Lingard and Jones on for Henriquez and Cleverly.
    • 45+2' And that is half time. A lot of work for Moyes to do now.
    • 45+1' A chance for Valencia as Anderson finds him. He cuts inside but fires well over.
    • 45' Cleverly takes but it’s headed clear. Time nearly up this half.
    • 44' Valencia fouled and wins a late free kick in a dangerous position. What can they do…
    • 43' A great run from Figueiras down the right who picks out Bacca. He should score but leans back and fires over. Sevilla could easily be 4-0 up.
    • 42' The Old Trafford crowd almost stunned into silence. Very little attacking impetus at the moment. Another bad pass from Anderson.
    • 41' United have no runners off the ball and it all looks static. Januzaj looks the only player making positive runs.
    • 40' Marin has been the best player on the park. That was a great drop of the shoulder and that would have been game over.
    • 39' It’s nearly three! It’s a great save from De Gea who saves Marin’s shot onto the woodwork.
    • 38' You feel United need something before half time. There are bound to be plenty of changes at the break.
    • 37' Perotti is nearly in again but the flag goes up for offside as Ferdinand’s challenge comes in.
    • 36' Valencia crosses to the back post and Kagawa’s point blank header is beaten away by Beto. Great save but Kagawa should have scored.
    • 35' Kondognbia looking for Bacca but he runs the opposite way and United win it back. Ten minutes to the break.
    • 34' Another wasted ball from Anderson and it’s out for a throw. That was a really hopeful long ball.
    • 33' Judging from this first half so far, United really do need a marquee signing, preferably in the midfield. Sevilla running the shoe in midfield through Marin.
    • 32' Valencia finds Fabio down the right but his cross is cut out. Better urgency from United.
    • 31' A very dangerous backheel from Kondognbia on the penalty spot to his keeper who hacks it clear. That could have been disastrous!
    • 30' Another pass from Kagawa goes astray and it’s out for a goal kick. He hasn’t looked sharp tonight. United very flat at the moment.
    • 29' United fans now urging on their team and they nearly found the equaliser. Moyes looks very unhappy.
    • 28' Fabio finds Kagawa on the back post but he can’t quite bring it down and Beto smuggles it behind.
    • 27' It may only be a friendly but this is alarming for United and Moyes looks concerned. The tackling has been non existent.
    • 26' Marin turns on the edge of the box and shoots just wide! Nearly 3-0 to Sevilla!
    • 25' Kagawa is brought down after a good ball from Kagawa but nothing given. It should have been a free kick.
    • 24' GOAL Sevilla! And it’s Marin on loan from Chelsea this time. Bacca fed Vitolo and he squared for Marin who couldn't miss.
    • 22' Not the ideal script here but Sevilla have looked sharper.
    • 21' GOAL Sevilla! And it’s a great little finish from Vitolo from Perotti’s through ball.
    • 20' Great work from Alberto Moreno down the left but his cross is cut out. He has real pace.
    • 19' The replay shows it was a close run thing.
    • 18' Great run from Bacca who goes down in the box under a challenge from Kagawa. Close penalty shout but nothing given. Bacca then tries to bend one but it’s high and wide.
    • 17' Buttner shoots from outside the box and Beto spills the ball but Henriquez can’t quite follow up to score!
    • 16' Valencia finds room down the right and whips in a good cross. Sadly nobody there.
    • 15' Medel under no threat in midfield and Perotti finding some good spaces. United need to tighten up.
    • 14' Buttner can’t quite keep it in play and it’s out for a goal kick. Quiet start for United ad Van Persie looks on from the bench.
    • 13' Cleverly takes and Kagawa tries to flick on to Anderson. A well worked free kick didn’t quite come off.
    • 12' Kagawa has been very quiet. Only had a couple of touches so far. Anderson wins a free kick in a dangerous area.
    • 11' So despite Sevilla’s early dominance, the first real chance falls to United. Perotti comes clear but Fabio defends well.
    • 10' Lovely ball from Januzaj to Henriquez who is clear on goal. Beto saves well!
    • 9' Januzaj finds Anderson but it gets stuck under his feet. Sevilla clear. United attacks sporadic at best.
    • 8' Figueiras crosses to Bacca but he can’t quite reach it. More danger from Sevilla.
    • 7' Great turn from Kondognbia. Sevilla looking comfortable on the ball. Cleverly releases Valencia but he loses out.
    • 6' Nice skills from Anderson but Kagawa loses out on the edge of the box. Wayne Rooney isn’t here and is not expected to be involved in the Community Shield.
    • 5' Sevilla continue to attack and win a free kick. Shot from Perotti flashes wide.
    • 4' Ferdinand has been the busiest United player so far. United yet to string an attack together.
    • 3' Great run from Fazio. He plays it to Marin and Ferdinand clears for another corner. All Sevilla at the moment. Ferdinand heads clear again!
    • 2' Vitolo plays it to Perotti and his shot cannons off Ferdinand and out for a Sevilla corner. United clear the danger.
    • 1' Referee Lee Probert blows the whistle to get us underway here. United in red, Sevilla in yellow. Ferdinand gets his first touch immediately.
    • 19:25 The players are out before kick off and Ferdinand has received a rousing reception. This should be a fun match.
    • 19:20 This will be Manchester United’s final pre-season friendly before Sunday’s Community Shield so a good chance for the players to sharpen their skills for Wigan. Ten minutes to kick off.
    • 19:15 TEAMS: Manchester United: De Gea; Fabio, Ferdinand, Smalling, Buttner; Valencia, Cleverley, Anderson, Kagawa, Januzaj; Henriquez /// Sevilla: Beto, Figueiras, Fazio, Pareja, Alberto, Medel, Kondognbia, Marin, Perotti, Vitolo, Bacca.
    • 19:10 Sevilla have already returned to competition with a 9-1 aggregate thrashing of Mladost Podgorica in Europa League qualifying and beat Barcelona 3-1 in a friendly before that. It won’t be a cake walk for David Moyes’ men. Team news shortly.
    • 19:05 Rio Ferdinand: “This is going to be a big night for me as well as an emotional one. I cannot believe where those 10 years have gone and I am lucky to have spent them here at Manchester United.This club is unique in every way, the history and drive of the place is unbelievable, it spurs everyone to succeed. The fans are the best in the world, their commitment is amazing and I have appreciated their support throughout my career. I hope they enjoy the night as much as I intend to.”
