FULL TIME: West Brom 1-0 Manchester United

That's it at the Hawthorns. Not for one second did United look like they were going to get back into this after going behind. They were forced to play with 10 men for 65 minutes after Juan Mata's early red, but Louis van Gaal's side against mustered just one shot on goal all game. That isn't good enough.

Juan Mata

Four minutes of time added on.

Change for West Brom as Sandro comes on for Saido Berahino

Now Memphis is penalised for a foul throw. Dreadful.

Matteo Darmian, has had a disappointing game, is off to be replaced by Timothy Fosu-Mensah. Seven minutes plus stoppage time remain.

United are looking pretty dreadful here, poor passing, desperately poor first touches, just lethargic all round.

Just over 10 minutes remaining of this match.

Depay looking a threat already, skipping inside Gardner and winning a free kick in the process.

Another change for United, Marcus Rashford is off with Memphis Depay replacing him.

Nothing is happening for United going forward at the minute, West Brom look the more likely to score. Van Gaal has two deep lying midfielders on the pitch at the minute, do you need that chasing a goal?

West Brom have the lead! After some measured build-up the ball is sprayed out wide to sub Pocognoli who drills a terrific ball into the six yard area. Rondon is completely unmarked and has all the time in the world to take the ball down and fire into the bottom corner.

Goal! West Brom 1-0 Manchester United (Salomon Rondon, 66)

Sub for United as Morgan Schneiderlin comes on for Herrera.

Martial again runs towards the box but there is not a sight of a United shirt near him in support. He has to wait for Lingard to come up beside him on the left but his cross is easily dealt with.

Herrera drills a low one on goal but it is harmless.

Martial chests the ball down and bears down on goal but just as he is about to pull the trigger he is tripped by the challenge of Olsson. A booking for the Baggies defender and a free kick on the edge of the box for United.

Rondon beats Blind brilliantly to open up space for himself to run into but Herrera slides in ahead to make an important challenge. West Brom finding the initiative again.

United have been much better these past five minutes or so.

What an effort from Lingard! Finding no room down the left wing, he cuts inside and tries to curl one into the top corner but his effort is just too high, coming off the roof of the net.

Rashford backheels the ball into Rojo who tries to thump a cross in from the left. It appears to strike the arm of Garner on the way but Mike Dean waves away hand ball appeals.

Blind has two goes from the corner but West Brom deal with both of them.

Martial does brilliantly, cutting in from the left down the byline, riding two challenges before cutting it back to Rashford who strikes for goal, only to see his effort deflected wide. United corner.

The second half starts as the first ended with United largely pinned in their own half. Martial a few moment ago tried to take the lot of them on, but got nowhere quickly.

And West Brom get us back underway at the Hawthorns.

HALF TIME: West Brom 0-0 Manchester United

That West Brom intensity has faded as we near half-time. United have been dominated since going down to 10-men, Rashford and Martial have been feeding off scraps.

Smalling and Rondon are having a great battle so far. Smalling is perhaps edging it so far, tracking the striker across the backline and matching him strength for strength,

Lingard chases the ball down into the corner before cutting inside up the byline and pinging one into the feet of Martial. His his control is instant, but takes a second too long shifting the ball onto his right foot and McAuley closes him down.

Saido Berahino holds Blind off with ease and chests the ball down to Rondon who lashes one on goal from 25 yards out. Decent effort, but De Gea is always going to save that.

Rashford, who has moved out to the right, tries to jink his way past two West Brom defenders but is felled by a challenge.

Fletcher now reacts quicker than Blind and lifts an inviting ball into the far post, looking for Rondon, but the ball creeps out of play before he gets his head to it. Fletcher is running the midfield in this game at the moment.

Moments after the red card, Dawson almost catches De Gea out with a superb half volley that almost dips into the far corner, but just creeps wide.

Juan Mata is shown a yellow card! Darren Flectcher cuts past the Spaniard who catches his former teammate with a late kick. Mike Dean shows no sympathy and Mata, United's hero mid-week, is off after 25 minutes.

RED CARD - Juan Mata

Juan Mata is booked for charging down a West Brom free kick from about two yards away.

West Brom are within an inch of taking the lead! Carrick concedes a foul about 40 yards out that Garnder hooks in towards the far post! McAuley breaks free from his man and nods across goal, but his effort veers just wide of the far post. Nevermind all of that, actually, the West Brom defender had already been flagged offside.

Gardner whips one in but Martial leaps across to knock it out for a corner. The set piece comes in but it is an easy on for De Gea to catch.

West Brom have a free kick right on the line of the penalty box after Daley Blind's boot came within a centremeter of Saido Berahino's noggin. Craig Gardner to take.

Dawson makes a clever run into the and nods Fletcher's cross over to Berahino. He shoots first time but Smalling gets across to make an important block before De Gea comes out to collect.

Berahino wins the ball inside his own half and flings a hopeful ball downfield for Rondon to run onto. Smalling however is no slouch and springs across to get to the ball first and usher it out.

West Brom are finding their feet in this contest here, forcing United into some slightly desperate looking clearances. Nothing to trouble De Gea yet, but the Baggies are certainly growing in confidence.

Rondon, out on the left, cuts inside and curls a lovely pass into the box. It's Dawson who is up challenging for it, beating Martial of all people to the ball, but can't steer his header on target.

Mata makes a brilliant run down the right, cutting past three men before shifting the ball inside to Martial. The Frenchman quickly has three defenders around him and he can't find space for the shot, instead moving it to Herrera whose cross into the box is easily dealt with.

United are dominating possession in these early stages. Feels very much like a home game with United's away contingent in full voice.

Martial turns Darren Fletcher with ease, shifting the ball onto his right before taking an early shot from 25 yards out but it's an easy save for Foster.

The ball has barely touched the ball in the opening minute, lots of head tennis and long punts upfield.

And get Manchester United get us underway at the Hawthorns.

And the teams are making their way out onto the pitch from the tunnel. A couple of minutes until kick-off.

Elsewhere today, Liverpool have sealed a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace with Christian Benteke scoring from the penalty spot with the last kick of the game.

Matteo Darmain replaces the impressive Guillermo Varela at right back. The full-back takes a spot on the bench alongside fellow youngsters James Weir and Timothy Fosu-Mensah.

TEAM NEWS: Manchester United
Michael Carrick is in contention again after being rested midweek while Chris Smalling could also be in contention having been sidelined following that shoulder injury suffered in the FA Cup win at Shrewsbury.

Louis van Gaal's injury woes are easing somewhat with Antonio Valencia, Marouane Fellaini and Phil Jones fit again but are unlikely to start given their lengthy lay-offs. And with United's forward options still meagre, Marcus Rashford could be given the chance to start again. Ashley Young, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Wayne Rooney remain among the absentees.

TEAM NEWS: West Brom
Jonny Evans will miss the chance to come up against his former teammates due to a hamstring problem that has ruled him out today. Chris Brunt won't play again this season after undergoing surgery on a cruciate knee ligament injury that will cruelly deny him a place in Northern Ireland's Euro 2016 squad.

Hopes of Champions League qualification through the league looked to be dead in the water following Manchester United's 2-1 defeat to Sunderland in January. Even their manager admitted their best hope of doing so was by winning the Europa League. But thanks to a couple of miserable Manchester City performances since then, Louis van Gaal's side are hot on their neighbours heels. Another win today, which will be their fifth in a row in all competitions, will move them level on points with fourth placed City and just two behind Arsenal in third.

12 points clear of the relegation zone following a very credible draw away to Leicester City and a win over Crystal Palace, West Brom look to be in for a nice, boring end of season run-in, something Tony Pulis will not mind at all.
