  • Mata makes a dangerous break now, looking to put some distance between United and their own goal, and he outstrips Burn with spry pace. The defender manages to get across him a few yards down the line, but his challenge is clumsy and the referee books him for his effort.

  • GOAL! SCOTT MCTOMINAY FOR MANCHESTER UNITED! 1-0! It's the Red Devils who've hit the front at the Amex Stadium with a peach of a free-kick and header! Mata swings in from the right flank, 25 yards or so out, looking for his midfield partner near the far post - and the Scotland international delivers, timing his run just so to avoid the onside trap and nodding a strong finish past Steele into the opposite corner. United have their breakthrough after weathering a wobble in their composure down the other end.

  • Only a handful of minutes into the second half and Graham Potter has decided to make a change. Jahanbakhsh is the man to make way with Neal Maupay on in his place.

  • GOAL! JUAN MATA FOR MANCHESTER UNITED! 2-0! That could be the game for the Red Devils! It's a little piece of magic from Van de Beek that is the key cog in a move, as the Dutchman tucks Fred's throughball into the path of the Spaniard with a little backheel, whereupon the latter slides a shot between Dunk's legs and into the bottom-right corner. Lovely stuff from United.

  • Veltman cuts down Rashford as the latter looks to break free and United get a free-kick just outside the left-edge of the Albion box.

  • GOAL! PAUL POGBA FOR MANCHESTER UNITED! 3-0! What an absolute beauty! An absolute beauty indeed! The Frenchman steps up to take the free-kick, just over 20 yards out and curls it over the defensive wall towards the near-post. It takes a neat deflection in off the post to sail further into the back of the net but it would have beaten Steele anyway, with the goalkeeper left gobsmacked. A corker of a finish.

  • Lindelof is flashed a late yellow card now for a sloppy challenge, as the ball pings around. Van de Beek meanwhile is released into the box and almost finds his mark, with Steele foiling him just inside the six-yard area at close range.
