Full-time scores

Brighton 3-1 West Ham

Leicester 1-1 Swansea

Manchester United 2-0 Huddersfield

West Brom 2-3 Southampton

Three minutes of added time for Huddersfield to endure.

An unmarked Depoitre heads Mooy's cross into the hands of De Gea, who looks very likely to mark his 300th United appearance with a clean sheet.

Sanchez celebrates his first United goal...

Alexis Sanchez

Mourinho's final change sees Martial replace Lukaku. Into the final 10 minutes.

Brighton and Bournemouth may just have sewn up all three points, while Rondon gives West Brom late hope.

Goal: Bournemouth 2-1 Stoke (Lys Mousset)

Goal: West Brom 2-3 Southampton (Salomon Rondon)

Goal: Brighton 3-1 West Ham (Pascal Gross)

Lukaku steers Valencia's cross over the bar and Pogba bends a long-range shot wide.

Sanchez is taking some punishment in this second half. Marcus Rashford and Tom Ince have replaced Mata and Van La Parra respectively.

King finishes past Jack Butland from close range to put Bournemouth back on level terms with less than 20 minutes to play.

Goal: Bournemouth 1-1 Stoke (Joshua King)

Lossl saves the initial penalty but inadvertently deflects the ball back into the path of Sanchez, who finishes at the second attempt.

Goal: Manchester United 2-0 Huddersfield (Alexis Sanchez)

Mata feeds Sanchez, who is a step too quick for the clumsy Hefele. The former Arsenal forward steps up to try and score his first goal in United colours...

Penalty to Manchester United

Hefele takes out Sanchez and quickly picks up a yellow. Lingard is the man to make way for Pogba.

A fantastic curling strike from Izquierdo puts Brighton back in front at the Amex.

Goal: Brighton 2-1 West Ham (Jose Izquierdo)

Jonathan Hogg is booked for wiping out Lingard before Schindler limps off for Huddersfield just shy of the hour mark. Michael Hefele comes on in his place.

It looks like Pogba is preparing to enter the fray for United...

Southampton stretch their lead in that relegation six-pointer, Ward-Prowse curling home a free-kick after a foul on Wesley Hoedt.

Goal: West Brom 1-3 Southampton (James Ward-Prowse)

United continue to build the pressure and Huddersfield's resistance is broken.

Mata's cross from the left is cushioned into the bottom corner on the volley by Lukaku.

Romelu Lukaku

Goal: Manchester United 1-0 Huddersfield (Romelu Lukaku)

Fernandez gets his head to a Ki Sung-yueng corner and Swansea are level in the East Midlands.

Goal: Leicester 1-1 Swansea (Federico Fernandez)

Sanchez combines well with Lukaku before being denied by a superb block from Smith, who is then booked for fouling the Chilean.

United lay siege to the Huddersfield area and win a couple of corners before Lingard thrashes a shot well wide.

The second half is off and running. No further changes.

Half-time scores

Bournemouth 0-1 Stoke

Brighton 1-1 West Ham

Leicester 1-0 Swansea

Manchester United 0-0 Huddersfield

West Brom 1-2 Southampton

Two minutes of added time at Old Trafford, where Smalling has to be alert to head Quaner's cross away from Depoitre.

Sanchez reacts petulantly after being penalised for a foul on Hadergjonaj and receives a yellow card for his troubles.

Two goals in the space of three late first-half minutes has Southampton in front at The Hawthorns.

Centre-back Stephens glances home James Ward-Prowse's corner to score for the third successive match across all competitions.

Goal: West Brom 1-2 Southampton (Jack Stephens)

Former Juventus midfielder Lemina rifles a shot beyond Ben Foster from the edge of the West Brom box and Southampton are level.

Goal: West Brom 1-1 Southampton (Mario Lemina)

Lossl races off his line to gather the loose ball after Lingard looks to play in Lukaku.

Huddersfield's risky high line at free-kicks finally pays off.

Smalling is denied by Lossl after peeling off the back of Schindler, but the offside flag is raised.

Chris Smallin

Some hesitancy from Zanka almost presents Sanchez with a great opportunity, but his attempted cross is gathered by Lossl.

Depoitre, who looked to pick up a knock during that aforementioned corner, holds the ball up well but Hadergjonaj is unable to take advantage.

A bit of treatment for Sanchez after some fine recovery work from Van La Parra.

Depoitre gets his head to a Huddersfield corner before Mathias "Zanka" Jorgensen is whistled for a push.

After Depoitre falls heavily following an aerial collision with Rojo, Huddersfield make their first change of the afternoon after only 33 minutes.

Billing makes way for ex-Manchester City man Mooy. Unclear if that's injury-related.

As Mourinho's men toil in search of an opener, former Red Devils striker Hernandez restores parity for West Ham against Brighton with a fine strike into the top corner after a nice dummy from Joao Mario.

Goal: Brighton 1-1 West Ham (Javier Hernandez)

Lingard lofts the ball to Sanchez, who goes down under zero contact from Christopher Schindler. Definitely no penalty.

Sanchez escapes from Hadergjonaj and unleashes an accurate strike that is beaten away at his near post by Lossl. So close to the Chilean's first United goal.

Mata then produces a mistimed sliding challenge on Quaner and joins Billing in the book.

Alexis Sanchez

The first yellow card of the afternoon goes to the combative Billing, who went in late on Rojo.

Van La Parra then goes down injured after a collision with Antonio Valencia, only to spring back up when a deflected Sanchez shot comes his way.

A miraculous recovery!

McTominay has been in the wars early on here, but again is fine to carry on.

Huddersfield are consistently trying to play offside at free-kicks and doing it poorly. An incredibly risky approach.

A couple of nervy punches from Lossl and McTominay is absolutely wiped out in the air by Kongolo, who was nowhere near the ball.

That looked like a stonewall penalty but referee Attwell waves away the protests. Mourinho deep in conversation with the fourth official.

Lovely quick feet from Kelechi Iheanacho as he plays in Vardy for Leicester's opening goal.

Riyad who?

Goal: Leicester 1-0 Swansea (Jamie Vardy)

A rare foray forward from Huddersfield as Florent Hadergjonaj attempts to pick out Van La Parra with the cross. United clear their lines.

A heavy challenge involving Philip Billing and McTominay leaves the latter in a heap. He looks OK to continue.

All United at Old Trafford early on, as you might expect. Jesse Lingard sees a low shot saved by Jonas Lossl and Mata's inswinging free-kick is headed straight at the goalkeeper by Chris Smalling.

Huddersfield appeal in vain for offside.

The flurry of early goals continues as Murray, put through on goal by Pascal Gross, coolly slots past Adrian.

Goal: Brighton 1-0 West Ham (Glenn Murray)

After seeing an effort cleared off the line by Steve Cook, Shaqiri heads in a deep cross to hand Stoke the advantage at the Vitality Stadium.

Goal: Bournemouth 0-1 Stoke (Xherdan Shaqiri)

A perfect start for West Brom as they take an early lead over relegation rivals Southampton.

Chris Brunt's corner is nodded home by Egyptian centre-back Hegazi.

Goal: West Brom 1-0 Southampton (Ahmed Hegazi)


Impeccably observed.

Referee Stuart Attwell blows his whistle and Huddersfield striker Laurent Depoitre gets proceedings underway.

The teams have emerged from the tunnel and will now observe a minute's silence before kick-off. The 60th anniversary of the Munich air disaster, which killed 23 people including eight United players, is on Tuesday.

Five minutes remaining until kick-off at Old Trafford and elsewhere.

A reminder that IBTimes UK will also be providing live coverage of the 17.30 GMT fixture between Arsenal and Everton later on.


Here is the headline team news from today's other four 15.00 GMT kick-offs...

  • Liverpool loanee Daniel Sturridge makes his first start for West Brom, likewise fellow striker Guido Carrillo for Southampton
  • Stoke hand a debut to midfielder Badou Ndiaye, while Bournemouth are unchanged from their great win at Stamford Bridge
  • Leonardo Ulloa and Jordan Hugill both start Brighton vs West Ham clash on the bench
  • No Riyad Mahrez for Leicester, while unchanged Swansea are missing new signings Andre Ayew (hamstring) and Andy King (ineligible to face his parent club)

The final whistle has sounded in the day's early Premier League kick-off at Turf Moor, where runaway leaders Manchester City have been denied victory for only the fourth time in the top-flight so far this season.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson netted a powerful late equaliser for the hosts to cancel out a wonderful strike from Danilo and Raheem Sterling also missed a glorious opportunity in the second half. City goalkeeper Ederson made a couple of brilliant saves.

That result means that United could close the gap to their cross-city rivals to just the 13 points with a win this afternoon.

We should mention that there is also no Ander Herrera in the squad for United today, despite the absence of Fellaini...

Today's game will be the 300th in a Manchester United shirt for goalkeeper David De Gea.

Mourinho has also been talking up academy graduate midfielder McTominay as he prepares to fill Pogba's boots...


David Wagner, as you can see, makes three changes to the side brushed aside by Liverpool in midweek.

Tommy Smith, Rajiv van La Parra and Collin Quaner replace Lowe, Aaron Mooy and Steve Mounie. The latter two drop to the bench, where they are joined by Malone and £14m January signing Alex Pritchard.

Kongolo is deemed fit enough to start.

The big news from a United perspective is that Paul Pogba is dropped to the bench along with Ashley Young and Anthony Martial.

Phil Jones, who scored a calamitous own goal against Tottenham and was also beaten too easily in the air by Harry Kane in the build-up to Christian Eriksen's early strike, does not even make the matchday squad.

Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay and Juan Mata all start, while Victor Lindelof and captain Michael Carrick are both included among the substitutes.

Sanchez makes his Old Trafford debut as expected.

Paul Pogba

Official lineups on the way shortly...


United's Flowers Of Manchester memorial ceremony began at 13.30 GMT this afternoon beneath the commemorative plaque at the south-east corner of the stadium.

Today's matchday programme includes a section dedicated to Munich, while fans will also receive a commemorative book and pin badge in addition to a poster of the last line-up of the Busby Babes from 5 February 1958 to hold up during a minute's silence.


Huddersfield will be missing Danny Williams (dead leg) and Chris Lowe (groin), while Elias Kachunga remains in the treatment room and Jon Gorenc Stankovic is rebuilding his match fitness after a lengthy lay-off.

New signing Terence Kongolo was taken to hospital after feeling unwell immediately after Tuesday's listless 3-0 home loss to Liverpool, but is expected to be fit after training on Thursday and Friday.

Scott Malone faces a late fitness test.

In terms of team news ahead of our feature game, Manchester United remain without long-term absentees Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Midfielder Marouane Fellaini, who has still yet to agree an extension to his expiring contract, is also back on the sidelines with a knee injury that forced him off just seven minutes after he was introduced as a second-half substitute against Tottenham.

Alexis Sanchez is in line to make his home debut after appearances at Huish Park and Wembley respectively, while it remains to be seen when Daley Blind will return from an ankle problem.

The versatile Dutchman was heavily linked with a move to Roma on deadline day.

Good afternoon and welcome to IBTimes UK's latest live coverage of the Premier League, where a five-game slate of Saturday mid-afternoon kick-offs is headlined by the clash between Manchester United and Huddersfield Town at Old Trafford.

United's 10-match unbeaten streak across all competitions came to an abrupt end on Wednesday night as they conceded the third-fastest goal in top-flight history in a woeful 2-0 loss to Tottenham, while a trip to the John Smith's Stadium in October resulted in their first defeat to the Terriers since 1952.

Huddersfield have struggled notably since then, however, and now sit 17th and just one point above the relegation zone after a seven-game winless run that includes four successive defeats. They have managed just two victories in their last 14 league outings, taking nine points from a possible 42.

The match takes place three days before the 60th anniversary of the Munich air disaster.

Old Trafford

Elsewhere this afternoon, Paul Lambert takes charge of his first away match as Stoke boss against a Bournemouth side who rose to 10th courtesy of their stunning 3-0 win at Chelsea in midweek.

Bottom club West Brom and fellow strugglers Southampton lock horns in a relegation six-pointer at The Hawthorns, while Riyad Mahrez will be nowhere to be seen as Leicester entertain a resurgent Swansea team who have given themselves a realistic shot at survival with successive wins over Liverpool and Arsenal.

Striker Leonardo Ulloa could also be handed his second Brighton debut as the Seagulls welcome injury-plagued West Ham to the Amex.

Stay tuned for all the latest team news and confirmed lineups.
