Minute   Description
90' +2 McTominay is brought down just outside of the penalty area by Martins Indi, and United are presented with one final chance to test Butland. It's Pogba who steps up and shoots, but he ends up sending his curling strike high over the top of the crossbar. That should be that.
90' The fourth official has indicated that there will be two minutes of added time.
89' The resulting set-piece initially fails to result in a chance on goal, but United are quickly able to regain possession and push forward once again. Martial breaks into the box and shoots, but his low effort is a tame one and rolls straight into the hands of Butland.
88' Pogba rushes into the heart of the Stoke penalty area and tries his hardest to latch onto a deep cross from Valencia, but he can't quite get to the ball ahead of Martins Indi and has to settle for a corner instead of a chance on goal.
86' Two wonderful chances for Diouf! A lofted pass is fired up towards the edge of the United penalty area and manages to find Diouf in a pocket of space. The substitute chests the ball down and immediately blasts a shot towards goal, where it's well saved by De Gea. He's then able to unleash another effort, but this time his strike can only find the side-netting.
84' Great save by Butland! An absolutely excellent pass from Pogba is fired down the right flank and into the path of Valencia. The full-back is in acres of space and manages to fizz a pass across the face of goal, where Rashford forces Butland into making a diving save with a clever close-range flick.
83' S. McTominay enters the game and replaces Mata.
Mata receives a rousing round of applause from the home fans as he's replaced by Scott McTominay.
82' Stoke are eventually able to regain possession after a period of dominance from United, but they're immediately closed down by a sea of red shirts and almost allow the home side to carve out another chance on goal. Danger is only just averted, however, with the ball rolling harmlessly behind for a goal-kick.
80' M. Fellaini enters the game and replaces J. Lingard.
M. Rashford enters the game and replaces A. Martial.
And the second is Marcus Rashford, with Martial making way.
With 10 minutes remaining and a comfortable lead under their belts, United have made a double substitution. The first player to come on is Marouane Fellaini, who replaces Lingard.
79' Mata hits the post! Pogba cuts inside from the left wing and quickly curls a lovely cross into the heart of the visitors' penalty area. Mata sticks out a foot and sends a glancing effort past Butland, but it ends up hitting the far post instead of finding the back of the net.
