Full-time: Yeovil Town 0-4 Manchester United

21:49

And now Lukaku is on the act! It's another superb goal on the counter with Herrera freeing Rojo of all people down the left. He looks up and picks out Lukaku in the box with a superb cross that the Belgian hammers home on the volley.

21:48

Goal! Yeovil Town 0-4 Manchester United (Romelu Lukaku (90+2)

21:47

Three minutes of time added on.

21:46

Lingard makes it three! He does it all on his own too, showing strength to shrug off his marker outside the box, bursting past a couple more before pining a low effort home.

21:44

Goal! Yeovil Town 0-3 Manchester United (Jesse Lingard, 88)

21:44

What a start that nearly was! Gomes gets the ball out on the left and easily beats his man, dropping a shoulder before spinning inside of him. He drives insides and decides to take the shot on himself, but can't squeeze it across goal and finds the side netting.

21:43

And here comes Angel Gomes! The 17-year-old is onto replace Rashford for the final few minutes.

21:40

McTominay threads a ball through that looks impossible for Rashford to get on the end of. His ridiculous pace ensures he does but luckily for Yeovil, Krysiak anticipated that gets out in time to get to the ball first.

21:37

Zoko tries to bundle his way past McTominay as he tries find room in the final third and succeeds before being tripped by the United midfielder. James takes the resulting free kick but it is a relatively easy save for Romero.

21:34

Krysiak denies Rashford another! Lingard brilliantly threads a pass through to find his teammate's run into the box but the goalkeeper is out quickly to make the block.

I believe this qualifies as 'rifling' it home.

21:28

That will be all from Sanchez tonight; Jesse Lingard is into replace him with just over 15 minutes remaining.

21:27

Sanchez delights the away support, neatly combining with Rashford with a neat flick before winning the ball back after a teammate had lost it.

21:23

Sanchez has taken another kick and is moving a little gingerly. He'll try run it off as his side look for a third.

21:21

Here's United's first change of the evening; Romelu Lukaku comes on for Mata. That should see Rashford come out to the left and Sanchez shift to the right to accommodate the Belgian.

21:19

United have a third! Nope, it won't count. Darmian lashes a ball across goal that Mata coverts from close range but he was offside as he did it.

21:18

Yeovil stung on the counter! Mata, sat in his own half, gets the ball and springs Sanchez down the middle, racing towards goal with support coming in the form of Rashford and Herrera. Sanchez lays a clever pass into the path of the Spaniard, who rifles a low effort across goal and into the back of the net.

21:16

Goal! Yeovil Town 0-2 Manchester United (Ander Herrera, 60)

21:15

A flurry of chances for United! Shaw feeds Sanchez down the left and he scoops a terrific ball in the middle which Mata is eyeing up on the volley. But just as he is about to pull the trigger, there is a terrific block from Dickson. The ball breaks to Shaw but he sees his effort blocked too and Yeovil clear.

Marcus Rashford

This is moment where United took the lead. Rashford almost had a second not too long ago but since then literally nothing has happened. This is a dreadful watch.

21:08

From out on the left, Dickson swings in a superb cross that Romero decides not to come for. Surridge leaps to reach it but Lindelof puts him under just enough pressure to ensure his header on goal isn't a dangerous one.

21:06

Rashford almost has a second! The youngster darts past two challenges coming in from the left to get into angle to shoot but a slight deflection takes his effort just wide of the post. Looked to be going in otherwise.

21:02

Sanchez is on the end of another late challenge, this time feeling the pain courtesy of Sowunmi, who picks up a yellow card.
