Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +3 West Brom still search for a consolation goal but the ball runs out for a goal kick...and that's it! United get the points today.
90' +1 R. van Persie has scored a goal for Manchester United! Assist by A. Valencia.
VAN PERSIE SEALS IT!!! Foster has been brilliant today, but he has no chance here as the Manchester United striker makes space and fires in a delicious curling effort high into the net from 20 yards. Great goal, and that'll be it.
89' Stunning save from Foster! Valencia drives down the right and shimmies past a challenge before teeing up Welbeck, who curls an effort towards the back post. The Baggies keeper makes a fingertip save to deny the striker yet again.
88' Two minutes to play plus injury time here - could United do the unthinkable and actually keep a clean sheet? Surely not...
87' Speak of the devil - Vidic almost puts it into his own net! Odemwingie shoots from outside the box on the right, and the defender can only get a flick on the ball, which spins wide of De Gea's post. That could so easily have ended up as an equaliser for the visitors.
86' Vidic is on hand again here to get out to deny Lukaku on the penalty spot. The captain has turned in a great performance today, blocking a number of chances.
84' Welbeck is denied by a great last-ditch tackle! Van Persie fed the striker, and just as he shaped to finish the game, a West Brom defender denied him with a sliding tackle. Risky challenge, but a vital one.
83' P. Scholes enters the game and replaces T. Cleverley.
M. Fortuné enters the game and replaces G. Dorrans.
Paul Scholes is on for Cleverley to tighten up possession in the middle for the hosts - and Carrick almost sees a deflected cross loop in past Foster! The keeper was grateful as the ball span up and away from the goal there.
81' Foster denies Van Persie! Evra found the striker in behind the Baggies defence with a fine pass, but the 29-year-old could only find a finish against the keeper's legs. Great work again by Foster to keep it to a single goal.
80' Welbeck wants a free kick as he goes round Tamas down the right wing, but referee Moss doesn't give it, much to Ferguson's annoyance in the dugout.
