Okay, NOW we’ve had Manchester United’s best chance of the game. I repeat: what took so long?! Chris Smalling leaps high six yards out to header a Wayne Rooney cross wide of the target. This is grim for the visitors.
We’ll have FOUR added minutes at Goodison Park.
Best chance of the game for Manchester United. What took so long?! Wayne Rooney adjusts his feet in time to get a shot away at goal before James McCarthy rushes back with a slide tackle, only for Tim Howard to stay on his feet and palm away. The save is greeted with a huge ROOOAAARR from the Everton faithful.
Darren Fletcher is fuming. The midfielder stands his ground after Kevin Mirallas knocks the ball around him and then, instead of trying to run past, charges straight into the Scot and falls to ground to win a free kick. It comes to nothing, though.
Another chance! Steven Naismith forces David de Gea to palm wide after a brilliantly executed counter led by Seamus Coleman. They were four on three for one moment!
Chance! Steven Naismith only has David de Gea to beat after a good Kevin Mirallas run and pass down the right, but he steers the ball wide of the post. Really should have scored.
Aaaaaand here is Danny Welbeck - on in the place of Shinji Kagawa. Manchester United now have Javier Hernandez as a lone striker with Juan Mata playing behind him, Wayne Rooney to the left and Welbeck to the right.
Less than 20 minutes to go and it looks as though Danny Welbeck will enter the fray for Manchester United. He could replace any one of current attackers, to be honest.
Change now for Everton. Leon Osman replaces the lively Ross Barkley.
Jon Birchall reports from Goodison Park: “Manchester United are losing their heads here as Wayne Rooney goes flying in with his studs up on James McCarthy. David Moyes has looked to change things with a double substitution but Everton are in complete control.”
Uh oh. Wayne Rooney goes in for a ROONEY CLASSIC - a both feet off the ground challenge to win the ball but probably catch the man as well - on James McCarthy. The midfielder is hobbling off the pitch rather gingerly and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he had to come off.
Opta: “Javier Hernandez is the only player in Premier League history to score 10+ goals away from home as a substitute.”
Indeed he does make some changes. Off go Nani and Jonny Evans, on come Antonio Valencia and Javier Hernandez. It’s now Chris Smalling and Phil Jones at centre-back, with Valencia slotting in at right-back.
Yellow card for James McCarthy. The Everton midfielder takes Juan Mata out by following through on a robust challenge. Looks like David Moyes is about to change things...
Goal's Harry Sherlock: "United are clueless. There's no invention, there's no desire, there's no real ability. It's just downright embarrassing. #MUFC"
@mharrison196348: "@GoalUK Utd could still get 4th...#moyessaidthatnotme..."
@_GeneralIbe: "Does he still need more time? He is completely clueless even if 10yrs is given to him, #moyesout @manutd @goaluk"
Good run from Seamus Coleman. The Everton full-back is (AGAIN!) given too much space to run into. He makes good use of it and evades a challenge but then strikes a wayward shot well wide.
Better from Manchester United. Shinji Kagawa forces Tim Howard to make a save with a drive from 25 yards, while Ross Barkley is booked for tugging at the shirt of Chris Smalling.
We’re under way for the second half - and within 30 seconds we have a chance. Wayne Rooney has a glorious opportunity to pull one back but takes forever to get a shot away before Antolin Alcaraz gets back to challenge. Really should have pulled the trigger earlier.
Half-time change, presumably due to injury, as Antolin Alcaraz replaces Sylvain Distin for Everton.
