34. It looks like Tim Fosu-Mensah is about to come on for United, as the third and final change.

33. United are struggling to get the ball upfield to Martial and that is hampering the Reds’ chances of scoring an equaliser here at The Hawthorns. A more direct approach might be needed and that could require Marouane Fellaini to step off the bench in the latter stages.

32. Memphis does well to win a free-kick on the left wing and the Dutchman then hits the resulting set-piece into the six-yard area, where Rojo rises but just misses the ball with his head.

19. Blind’s corner is headed clear by Rondon.

17. The second half kicks off at The Hawthorns and neither manager has made changes.

From the live blog commentary below, only 16 major events or incidences took place at the football match. They all happened just before the half-time whistle on Super Sunday, at The Hawthorns . . .

HALF-TIME

16. The first half ends goalless at The Hawthorns.

15. Lingard does brilliantly well to earn a corner on the left wing and Blind hits the resulting set-piece into the Baggies area. His cross is headed clear by Rondon.

14. One minute of time has been added.

13. Smalling jostles with Rondon on the left wing, near the corner flag, and forces him to play the ball out of play.

12. Van Gaal may be pleased if his team can get to half-time with the score still goalless, so that he can orchestrate a plan for the second half with regards to United playing with just 10 men.

11. As the West Brom fans celebrate Mata’s red card, McAuley volleys an ambitious effort over the bar from range.

10. Mata collides with Fletcher for the second time in as many minutes and the Spaniard accidentally kicks the Scot’s ankle, earning his second yellow card and his dismissal. Mata is sent off with a red card

9. Mata earns the first booking of the match for preventing Fletcher from taking a quick free-kick.

8. Gardner’s free-kick from the right wing flies all the way to the back post and Mcauley heads wide of the goal from close range, although the linesman then raises his flag for offside.

7. West Brom wins a free-kick. Gardner’s free-kick play is deflected out for a corner by Martial and De Gea rises to comfortably catch the ball from the resulting set-piece. 

6. Saido Berahino is arguably West Brom’s most dangerous striker but he has barely touched the ball thus far.

5. Martial loses possession on the left wing when trying to latch on to Carrick’s pass and the Frenchman limps away from his challenge with a West Brom opponent.

4. West Brom makes the first attempt at goal as Craig Dawson rises at the back post to head a cross wide of De Gea’s goal.

LIVE FROM THE HAWTHORNS . . .
