WBA
90+4
This is it. United hit it long, but the referee blows for full time. What a performance by West Brom, and what a defeat for David Moyes, who is plainly out of his depth so early on.
90+3
West Brom win a corner. West Brom have won this.
90+2
Carrick with a long range strike, but it's right at Myhill. Then, seconds later, Januzaj cuts in from the left and blazes wide.
90+1
The first of four minutes left. Manchester United really need to get their summer signings Ander Herrera, Thiago Alacantara and Cesc Fabregas on for some creativity.
West Bromwich Albion Substitution
89'
West Brom are so comfortable. They won't concede if they keep this up.
88'
 
Anichebe replaced by Lugano
West Bromwich Albion Substitution
87
Rooney has the chance to send in a cross with a free kick on the left. It's energetically punched clear by Myhill for Anichebe on the left wing.
86'
Fellaini equalises! But he's offside! Van Persie puts Nani free on the right, who puts it across the six yard box for the Belgian to tap in.
84'
Januzaj burst down the right hand side and blasts it right at the keeper! He then lets the ball drift through his legs and West Brom have a goal kick.
83'
Van Persie hits a firm pass to Rooney, and the ball bounces off him towards Myhill. West Brom are trying to run down time in the corner.
82'
Manchester United have had 8 attempts on goal, and West Brom 3. For all the good it's done them.
81'
Nani evades about three defenders, gets behind the defence, but his cross is cut out by Olsson.
78'
Van Persie stretches to reach Nani's cross, but he can't aim it across goal.
77'
There's no movement from United up front, and West Brom are defending intelligently. This is an inexcusably lazy performance from United.
76'
United have no idea. Rooney sends a fifty yard ball to Januzaj, but it's hit far too hard, and it's out for a West Brom throw.
73'
 
Buttner is booked for a hack on Sessegnon as he broke down the left wing.
73'
Van Persie wins a corner on the right byline.
71'
Of course, Manchester United have always rescued games late on under Alex Fergu-oh.
70'
Carrick's long ball is headed back for Myhill to waste time. Legitmately, of course.
69'
This performance has detracted slightly from City's performance on Sunday. It turns out it was just that United are that bad. They just do not care.
68'
 
Fellaini replaces Anderson. Meanwhile van Persie almost scores at the near post from a Januzaj cross. It's all go.
Manchester United Substitution
67'
GOAL! Berahino scores! Manchester United 1-2 West Brom. Sessegnon clips a ball over the top for Amalfitano. Holding off Phil Jones' challenge, his one-touch lay-off finds Berahino, who blasts the ball past De Gea.
66'
Twenty five yards and central. Amalfitano gets the ball over the wall and De Gea does well to tip over, even if it might have been going over.
64'
 
Sessegnon breaks, and surrounded by four places, cuts onto his left, and Jones barges him over. Jones is rightly booked.
63'
Sessegnon picks up Anichebe's lay off and chips it a few yards over. Carrick should have been tracking his run.
62'
Some one touch play around the box, and Rooney slips in Anderson whose first touch is heavy, and Myhill is out smartly to claim.
61'
Jonas Olsson, standing, heads the ball into the ground, and it loops up and hits the bar! Ferdinand was providing little distraction for the defender there.
60'
 
A couple of minutes ago, Robin van Persie replaced Javier Hernandez.
60'
Sessegnon flicks the ball over the defence for Jones, but Rooney is covering and puts the ball out for a corner on the right.
59'
United clear a cross from the left. West Brom are not playing for a draw. Mulumbu has a chance from just outside the box but it's just wide.
Manchester United Substitution
57'
 
GOAL! Manchester United 1-1 West Brom. Rooney equalises! Rooney whips in a ball across the six yard box. Hernandez aims to flick it on with a dive, but it evades him, and discombobulates Myhill, so much so the ball goes straight into the goal!
57'
Buttner cuts in on the left, wriggles free from Jones, who trips him from behind. Van Persie will be on soon.
55'
United are playing stupidly now. Dithering and trying to be too neat. It's their own fault for being complacent, and West Brom have it back.
54'
 
Goal! Manchester 0-1 West Brom! What a goal from Morgan Amalfitano. He picks the ball up on the wing. He casually drifts inside, Januzaj letting him go. Finally, Ferdinand jumps forward, Amalfitano nutmegs him, is clean through on goal. He jinks, putting De Gea on the floor, and chips smartly over the 'keeper.
53'
What is the point of Phil Jones?
52'
Januzaj messes about on the left after receiving Buttner's pass, and is tackled. It's an odd substitution for Moyes to have made if Kagawa wasn't injured.
51'
Sessegnon has played really well so far, keeping possession when he dribbles and when he passes. Now, United have the ball in defence, showing no urgency.
50'
Rooney delivers, but it's headed clear, Nani sends the ball back to Rooney, who cuts inside, but his cross isn't hit well enough. The ball comes back out to Anderson, but he hooks it well over.
49'
Buttner's terrible cross is kicked behind for a corner by Ridgewell.
49'
Sessegnon out to Amalfitano on the right, but it's too long and Nani collects at the back post. Anichebe then fouls him.
48'
Olsson clambers over Rooney from the corner, but concedes a free kick.
47'
Hernandez has had one shot blocked already, but Sessegnon attacks from the right, is not tackled for about thirty yards. He should shoot on his left, but he lays it off for Berahino who can't beat De Gea from a tight angle.
46'
And with that being the only change, we kick off.
46'
 
Adnan Januzaj is brought on to replace Shinji Kagawa.
Manchester United Substitution
45+3'
Anichebe seems to have injured himself inexplicably, just passing a ball inside. Anyway, as he stretches it out, the referee blows for half time.
45+3'
Kagawa, to Anderson, to Carrick, to Nani on the right. His cross is low and hoofed away. Jones finds Nani, whose pass is poor and Berahino has it. Ridgwell sends it long.
45+2'
Ridgwell and Nani argue over the ball on the right wing, and Ridgewell is given the benefit of the doubt as Nani runs around him and is obstructed all the way to the ground.
45+1'
Steve Clarke is questioning how much more time there is left. Dignity, always dignity.
45+1'
There are going to be three minutes of added time.
45'
Amalfitano twists on the right, and Buttner has to challenge and give away a corner. Amalfitano takes, Yacob heads to the back post but Sessegnon boots it forty yards over!
44'
Carrick hits the ball long for Rooney, who turns to the left and finds Kagawa. Kagawa cuts inside on the left, inside the box, but his pass to Buttner allows the Dutchman to simply strike against Olsson.
43'
Anichebe chests down for Sessegnon, who swaps passing with Amalfitano, and Evans is across to tackle, and West Brom have a throw high up on the right.
41'
Anderson overruns the ball and his lunge sends the ball out. Again.
40'
Most of the play has been restricted to the midfield in the last couple of minutes. Jones gets clear on the right but the cross misses anyone. United then break down the right and Jones' falling cross is cleared for a corner. Nothing happens. Yacob wins the ball back and West Brom attack with Anichebe on the left.
38'
Kagawa collects a ball from Anderson, turns towards goal, finds space for a long range shot on the left, but it's not hit strongly enough to trouble Myhill.
37'
Sessegnon collects a ball over the top, turns back, lays the ball off to Berahino but his shot is well over.
36'
Nani has drifted inside, which means when the ball goes to Jones it's instantly passed back instead of crossed. Buttner finds the ball on the left, clips in a ball for Nani, but his header is against a defender.
35'
Buttner's cross is terrible, Anderson's run forward is hapless, and West Brom have a throw in on the left.
34'
Kagawa breaks towards the box, cuts onto his right, floats a great cross for Anderson to head onto the bar, and then volley over. Ludicrously, the referee gives an offside decision against him, but it doesn't really matter.
34'
Headed by two West Brom players, and eventually United clear and break down the left with Kagawa.
33'
Jones brings down Sessegnon on the left, and now Amalfitano has a chance to send in a cross about twenty five yards from goal.
32'
Nani again finds space on the right, and finds Rooney, bombing forward, but he can't get over the ball and it's a couple of yards over. That was a great chance.
31'
Neat play from Kagawa and Nani lets Anderson cut in from the right, but his left foot shot is easily gathered by Myhill.
31'
Nani and Ridgewell come together high on the right. It looks like Nani bundles him over, but somehow wins the corner. Firmly headed away by McAuley.
30'
Rooney heads the ball well clear, and West Brom have the ball back in defence. Ridgewell sends the ball long to Amalfitano, who cuts onto his right, and sends a great cross for Berahino to head a matter of inches wide!
29'
I have to disagree with Mr Cars UK - Nani has been the most effective, but it's been an alright start by Kagawa too. West Brom win a corner on the left after a Jones challenge.
28'
Olsson will be back on in a few seconds, having been bandaged around his head area.
26'
Nani does excellently to slip in Jones round the back, his cross on the byline earns a corner for Nani to take. It finds Carrick at the near post, and he attempts to hook it on, but it's from too tight an angle and West Brom have a goal kick. Olsson is off the pitch for the moment, bleeding after a collision with Hernandez, who is fine.
25'
I love pass completion stats.
View image on Twitter

RT @Squawka: Shinji Kagawa has completed 100% of this passes in the opening 15 minutes. Looking sharp too. #MUFC #WBAFC http://t.co/gr0SJDH…

24'
Nani's cross finds Rooney absolutely free in the box, just a couple of yards from the penalty spot, but his header is straight at Myhill.
24'
Yacob with a late challenge on Rooney, thirty yards from goal and on the right. Nani will take the free kick.
23'
Another ball from Anderson goes out on the right. Some players look like they could play with their eyes close, Anderson is just playing like his eyes are actually closed.
23'
I think they mean eludes.

20' Nani's whipped cross alludes Rooney in the six-yard box and the Baggies survive a brief scare. It remains 0-0 at Old Trafford #MUNWBA

22'
Hernandez plays the ball into Rooney for a one-two on the edge of the box, but Rooney's return pass is blocked. Hernandez then passes the ball out. Whoops!
21'
United have had 57% of the possession so far. Please tweet me with your guess of how much West Brom have had.
20'
Buttner sends a cross into the box that is far too high. Both United's fullbacks are a disgrace. Then, Nani on the right, fires in another low cross for Hernandez, and it's only Hernandez guessing to go the wrong way that stops him scoring.
18'
West Brom have a corner on the left wing, forty yards from goal. Amalfitano's ball is slightly overhit. A moment later, Buttner idiotically tries to run the ball out of play, but Sessegnon almost wins the ball from him, but barges him over.
17'
Anderson finds Nani on the left. His lovely, curling cross is around the back of the defence, and Hernandez is inches from finding the ball with his stretch, but Myhill palms it away. That was inches from the opening goal. Chances for both sides now.
16'
 
Carrick is booked for a clumsy challenge in midfield, but West Brom waste it.
15'
Sessegnon dances into the box, and fizzes across a ball, but luckily for United Ferdinand cuts the ball out. At the other end Nani breaks, cuts inside, but his left-footed shot is intercepted.
15'
Here is a man agreeing with me. I like that in a man.
View image on Twitter

@lxndrnthrtn I agree Jones is never a right back. Moyes should play him at CB or not at all

14'
Unied now trying to assert themselves in midfield until Alexander Buttner gets possession and tries to do something with the ball. As is the custom with Buttner, he loses the ball.
13'
 
Buttner wins, and instantly wins a tackle. Berahino has come on now, Sinclair off already.
West Bromwich Albion Substitution
12'
Scott Sinclair was injured by Kagawa's challenge. Berahino will be on any minute. Right now, West Brom have a free kick on the left and they'll send it long.
11'
 
Sessegnon through the middle, and West Brom have possession - until Mulumbu overruns it, Kagawa collects, and the midfielder scythes the Japanese midfielder down. He earns a booking, as well he should, and he displayes a level of incredulity which is incredible. I am incredulous.
10'
The corner comes to nothing, and Kagawa is acoss quickly to tackle Sinclair on the wing, preventing a break.
9'
West Brom continue to enjoy possession, with Sessegnon able to make the ball stick to him in midfield. Now United have it back, and attack down the right. Phil Jones limits United so much down the right. A ball to Rooney is intercepted and United have a corner on the right.
8'
An outswinging corner misses anyone. Ridgewell sends the ball back in, but the ref blows for a foul on Jonny 'Johnny' Evans.
7'
West Brom win a free kick as Buttner bundles over Amalfitano from behind. It's just on the halfway line, and Sessegnon wins the ball, crosses into the box but Ferdinand heads behind, thinking he was fouled by Victor Anichebe.
6'
West Brom in possession now, attacking down the right. They're not hitting it long, using the skill of Amalfitano, Jones and Sessegnon. Like Clarke said, they don't appear to be intimidated.
5'
Kagawa, lays the ball off to Rooney, but his cross is deflected. Sessegnon collects the ball on the right wing, but is quickly tackled and West Brom have a throw on the half way line.
4'
West Brom with a goal kick, and Myhill studiously avoids punting it into his own goal. United win the ball back instantly, and set about putting more pressure onto the opposition. They seem confident of finding a goal sooner rather than later, but they're not rushing into anything.
3'
United keep the ball around West Brom's area but are forced back into defence, and begin the attack again down the right wing. Nani, Kagawa and Jones combine, but Jones' cross evades everyone.
2'
United have had almost all of the ball so far. Rooney has been dispossesed in midfield, but United win the ball back quickly and attack through Nani. He exists!
1'
Hooray, we kick off! That means we are almost guaranteed 90 solid minutes of entertainment.
14.55
And for West Brom it's the chance to build on last week's win having previously gone eight Premier League games without a win. Obviously, that's incredibly unlikely to happen given the difference in quality between the two sides, but we can still hope to have an exciting game nonetheless. Five minutes to go.
14.50
This game is important to Manchester United to regain some impetus in the league after the embarrassment away to City last week. Having lost 4-1, anything other than a convincing victory will give the doubters plenty more to go on.
14.45
If you'd like to get in touch and give me your valued and reasoned opinions, you have two options. One, you can stand outside the office in Feltham and scream really loudly through the window, or two, you can tweet me at @lxndrnthrtn. The choice is yours.
14.40
West Brom have Morgan Amalfitano, their best player against Sunderland last week, and Stephane Sessegnon continues having scored on his debut in the same match. It was very difficult to tell how good West Brom were last week, given they were playing Paolo Di Canio's side.
14:35
It's an exciting team chosen by David Moyes, and also one that suggests he doesn't know what he's doing, exactly. Buttner isn't a good footballer, and if you want to rest Evra you have Fabio. Rafael is the best attacking right-back in the league, and Phil Jones is so immobile it's a joke. The midfield, I'll allow. You're welcome, David.
14:30
Steve Clarke showed he was a big, tough man: "I have never been afraid to go to their ground." He did not clarify if that meant he was hinting that he occasionally breaks into Old Trafford to pretend he manages the club, saying things like, 'You're coming off, Ryan."
14.25
Before the match, David Moyes commented on Robin Van Persie's return, "Robin van Persie will be involved somewhere against West Brom, He has trained today [Friday]." He then added, '"Tom Cleverley has done some training as well." And nobody cared.
