UEFA Champions League
UEFA Europa League


That's all for today, goodbye! 
United move back above Leicester City and into second on goal difference but are seven points behind leaders Manchester City. Their attention turns to the Europa League now and their tie against Real Sociedad on Thursday. As for West Brom, they stay in 19th and are currently 12 points from safety. Next up for them is a trip to Burnley.
The points are shared after a 1-1 draw between West Brom and United. Diagne outmuscled Lindelof to send his header past De Gea in just the second minute, with Fernandes pulling his side level with an excellent volley just before half-time. After the break, McTominay had an effort cleared off the line while Diagne sent a shot over the bar from close range. Maguire almost won it in the final seconds, but his header was tipped onto the post by Johnstone.
90' + 5' GREAT SAVE! Shaw puts another great cross in from the left and he picks out Maguire at the far post. He rises above his defender to get his head on it, and Johnstone gets his fingertips to the ball to tip it onto the post.
90' + 3' The West Brom defenders just seem to sit back when the ball comes to Fernandes, so he chooses to have a go from range. His shot is straight down the middle though and it's a comfortable save for Johnstone.
90' + 1' Maguire drives forward again and he picks out Shaw in space on the left. He drills a low cross into the near post, but a slight deflection takes it away from Van de Beek and Livermore is able to clear his lines.
M. Diagne
Yellow Card
89' Diagne clips the back of Rashford's heels and has his name taken by the referee.
88' GREAT CHANCE! It's a great first-time cross from Furlong on the right as he plays it right across the six-yard box. Lindelof misses it and Diagne is right behind him, but he fires it high over the bar from close range.
M. Phillips
R. Snodgrass
87' Final change for West Brom now and Phillips is coming on in place of Snodgrass.
86' Fernandes floats a cross into the far post from the free-kick towards Maguire, but the referee's whistle goes as there was a foul by the United captain on Bartley when he climbed for the header.
R. Snodgrass
Yellow Card
85' Rashford steps inside from the left and Snodgrass brings him down, giving away a free-kick just outside the box and earning himself a booking.
83' It's patient play from the hosts as they try to push forward again and Gallagher links up with Furlong down the right. He tries to lift his pass over the top for Diagne but sends it straight out for a goal-kick.
81' West Brom are still sitting deep in their own half to block the space ahead of United, so Rashford decides to have a go from range. He drills it towards goal, but a deflection sends it wide of the near post.
D. van de Beek
79' Second change for United now and it's Fred that's making way for Van de Beek.
A. Maitland-Niles
Yellow Card
79' Maitland-Niles picks up a booking after he drags Greenwood off the ball.
78' DOUBLE SAVE! Diagne gets the better of Maguire this time, as he outmuscles the defender to get one-on-one with De Gea. The keeper smothers his first shot and is quickly back to his feet to claw the ball away and stop him from having a header.
76' United are still pushing for another goal and McTominay picks out Fernandes just outside the box. He tries to thread it through for Cavani in the middle, but Livermore steps across to intercept it.
74' Shaw just pulls away from Furlong on the left again and he chooses to pull it back from the byline. He's got Cavani to aim for in the middle, but Ajayi is there for West Brom again to make a block.
72' West Brom break on the counter and only Maguire is back for United. Maitland-Niles curls a cross into the box from the left, but there's too much on it from Diagne and De Gea is quickly off his line to collect it.
70' OFF THE LINE! West Brom don't clear their lines from a corner and Greenwood sees a low shot saved by Johnstone. McTominay chests down the loose ball before hitting it on the half-volley and Bartley makes the block on the line.
69' It's well worked by United as they switch play from left to right and Greenwood plays in Wan-Bissaka in space on the wing. He drills a low cross towards Cavani, but Bartley gets back quickly to block it.
J. Livermore
O. Yokuşlu
67' There's a change for West Brom now as well as Livermore comes on to replace Yokuslu.
M. Greenwood
A. Martial
66' United are making their first change now and it's Martial that's making way, with Greenwood on for him.
64' OVERTURNED! Craig Pawson goes over to the monitor and after watching the replays of the incident, he chooses to overturn the decision as there wasn't much contact from Ajayi and there's no penalty for United.
62' PENALTY TO UNITED! Fernandes swings the free-kick into the box and Maguire goes to ground at the far post under a challenge from Ajayi. The West Brom players can't believe it and crowd around the referee, but VAR is going to have a look at this...
K. Bartley
Yellow Card
61' Bartley blocked off McTominay's run and he's shown a yellow card for the foul.
60' United break quickly after Maguire's clearing header and Wan-Bissaka sets them off down the right. He picks out McTominay ahead of him, and he wins a free-kick after Bartley fouls him.
58' Rashford breaks quickly down the left for United again and lays it off to Fernandes on the edge of the box. He drills it towards goal, but it gets a deflection off McTominay and Johnstone holds onto it.
56' United are still pushing forward and West Brom have all of their players sitting deep in their own half. Shaw pulls it back for Cavani, who tries to square it to Martial, but Furlong is there to block it for the hosts.
54' CHANCE! Maitland-Niles squeezes a throughball into Pereira on the left of the box and he hits his shot low across goal, through Lindelof's legs. He can't get it on target though and sends it wide of the far post.
52' Since his Premier League debut for United in February 2020, only Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski (both 44) have been involved in more goals in Europe's big-five leagues than Fernandes (38 - 22 goals, 16 assists).
50' Rashford wrongfoots two West Brom defenders to create a little space to whip a cross in from the right. He's looking for Shaw at the far post, but Snodgrass gets just enough on it to take it away from him.
48' United have made a bright start after the break and are keeping the ball well. Rashford gets the better of Townsend down the right and swings a cross into the box, but it's blocked by Bartley at the near post.
46' United get us back underway for the second half!
D. Furlong
L. Peltier
46' There's a change at the start of the second half for West Brom, with Furlong coming on for Peltier.
Allardyce will be pleased with how his side played in the first half, but will probably think they deserve to be ahead with the chances they've created. He'll be hoping more of the same after the break. As for United, they dominated possession without really troubling West Brom and Solskjaer will expect a much better performance in the second half, especially going in front of goal.
It's all square at 1-1 at the break between West Brom and Manchester United. Diagne gave the hosts an early lead in the second minute when he outmuscled Lindelof to head it past De Gea. Snodgrass also had a great chance with a header, but it was tipped over the crossbar by the keeper. Minutes before half-time, Fernandes equalised with an excellent volley with only United's second shot of the match.
45' + 1' West Brom break quickly to try and get themselves back ahead after the goal. Pereira plays a dangerous low cross into the six-yard box which Diagne misses at the near post, and Shaw puts it out for a corner ahead of Maitland-Niles.
L. Shaw
44' Shaw has a lot of space to run into and he pulls his cross back from the byline to pick out Fernandes.
Bruno Fernandes
44' WHAT A GOAL! Fernandes just pulls away his defender in the middle of the box to get on the end of Shaw's cross and he gets his leg up to hit it on the volley. Johnstone can't get close to it and United at level. 1-1!
43' Maguire makes another great run from deep into the box and touches it into Martial ahead of him. He pulls it back from the byline towards Fred, but Ajayi is there to intercept it for West Brom.
41' United are still dominating possession but just can't find a way past West Brom. The hosts are sitting deep in their own half and closing down all of the space ahead of United in the final third.
39' Cavani curls a brilliant cross into the far post from the edge of the box and Martial manages to nod it down. Snodgrass doesn't give him any time on the ball to pick out Shaw though but does put it out for a corner.
C. Gallagher
Yellow Card
37' Gallagher gave the ball away and he steps across Fred to try and make up for his mistake, committing a foul and picking up the first booking of the game.
35' United don't clear their lines properly and West Brom have a chance to counter. It's Townsend that curls a cross into the box, but he can't pick out Diagne and Shaw clears it at the far post.
33' Maguire makes a driving run into the box from the halfway line and tries to get a cross in when Ajayi pokes it behind for a corner. Shaw swings it into the area, but Peltier gets there ahead of the United captain.
31' Fred wins a free-kick for United in midfield and Shaw steps up to take it. He curls a good cross into the box which McTominay flicks on at the near post, but the offside flag goes up against him.
29' Rashford is starting to find a bit more room down the right as he drives forward again. He squares it into the near post for Wan-Bissaka, but Bartley gets back quickly to intercept it.
27' GREAT SAVE! Townsend curls a brilliant cross into the box from the left and Snodgrass gets above Shaw to get on the end of it. His header is looping under the bar and De Gea does well to get back and tip it over.
25' Pereira swings a free-kick into the box from the left and Diagne just steps away from Lindelof to get his head on the ball. He flicks it on but sends it well wide of the far post.
23' Rashford whips a great cross into the box from the right and it's just too high for Cavani in the middle. It falls for Martial at the far post though, but he can't direct his effort on target, sending it just wide.
22' Peltier has stayed down and it looks like he has a problem with his ankle after a coming together with Martial. He's receiving treatment on it now, but it looks like he'll be able to carry on. 
20' Shaw drills a low cross into Cavani on the edge of the box and he flicks it onto Martial, who does well to turn past Bartley. He can't find a way past Peltier though and Johnstone comes out to collect it.
18' United are keeping possession well at the moment, but they just can't find a way in behind West Brom. The hosts are keeping their shape well and making it difficult for United to get into the final third.
16' Gallagher picks up Lindelof's header and does really well to dribble past the defender and Fred to get to the edge of the box. Maguire is covering though and he gets back to nick it off him.
14' Martial touches the ball onto Fernandes, who has drifted out to the left to try and get involved. Three West Brom defenders are quick to close him down though and he's eventually crowded off it.
12' West Brom are trying to get forward, but their passing when they get into United's half is letting them down. Gallagher turns away from Fred and tries to pick out Peltier's run down the right, but there's too much on it and it goes straight out of play.
10' Diagne's goal is the earliest West Brom have scored in the Premier League since February 2015 against Southampton, when Saido Berahino scored in 1:12.
8' Fernandes pulls the ball back from the byline and Bartley's clearance goes as far as Rashford on the edge of the box. He nods it down for Fred to hit first time, but it's a comfortable save for Johnstone.
6' Fernandes just flicks the backheel into Rashford's path but he takes too long to get a shot away though and the West Brom defenders flood back. He touches it to Fred on the edge of the box, but his effort is blocked.
4' United almost play themselves into trouble as Fernandes sends his pass well behind Shaw and he has to track back quickly to make sure that Peltier doesn't reach it first and set off on the counter.
C. Gallagher
2' Gallagher just drifted into a pocket of space and floated a great first-time cross into the six-yard box for Diagne.
M. Diagne
2' WEST BROM LEAD! It's a lovely cross into the box from Gallagher and despite being behind Lindelof, the forward out muscles him to get his head on the ball and put it past De Gea for his first goal for the club. 1-0 West Brom!
1' Diagne gets the game underway for West Brom!
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away.
West Brom have lost nine of their last 12 Premier League home matches against United (W1 D2), shipping at least two goals in 11 of those games and 31 in total.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also makes two changes to his team after their draw with Everton last time out in the league. Fred and Martial are brought into the starting line-up, with Greenwood starting on the bench.
Sam Allardyce makes just two changes to the side that lost to Tottenham last Sunday, with Yokuslu making his first start for the club and Pereira also comes back in. Sawyers and Grant both drop to the bench.
MANCHESTER UNITED SUBS: Alex Telles, Axel Tuanzebe, Mason Greenwood, Daniel James, Brandon Williams, Nemanja Matic, Dean Henderson, Donny van de Beek, Eric Bailly.
MANCHESTER UNITED STARTING XI (4-2-3-1): David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Scott McTominay, Fred; Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Marital; Edinson Cavani.
WEST BROM SUBS: Jake Livermore, Karlan Grant, Matt Phillips, Romaine Sawyers, Callum Robinson, David Button, Hal Robson-Kanu, Dara O'Shea, Darnell Furlong.
WEST BROM STARTING XI (4-1-4-1): Sam Johnstone; Lee Peltier, Semi Ajayi, Kyle Bartley, Conor Townsend; Okay Yokuslu; Robert Snodgrass, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Conor Gallagher, Matheus Pereira; Mbaye Diagne.
United sit eight points behind Manchester City coming into this game having dropped points against Everton last time out, but they've lost just one of their last 10 in all competitions (W6 D3). That loss did come against Sheffield United though who, like West Brom, sit in the relegation zone. The Baggies are winless in their last five matches (D1 L4) and have only won once at home all season when they beat Sheffield United 1-0.
