90' + 3' Yarmolenko has space to attack down the right but he turns back and is happy to keep possession.

90' + 1' West Ham brings on Yarmolenko for Bowen.

90' Four minutes added at the end of the second half.

89' The second half psosession is 52-48 in Manchester United's favour. That's how much the Hammers have improved from the way they started the game - having just 15% of the ball then.

85' Manchester United brings on Ighalo for Rashford. And he almost scores with his first touch after Greenwood cuts the ball back to the on-load striker and he smashes is wide on the turn.

80' Fernandes picks up a yellow card for dissent. Masuaku also get booked.

77' Soucek is fouled and another freekick for West Ham in a similar area. Matic the culprit again. Meanwhile, Haller is the next West Ham player coming on, with Antonio making way for him.

75' Cresswell is injured and his race is run. Masuaku replaces him.

72' Nobel with a better delivery this time and Antonio heads it well over.

71' Bowen wins another freekick, this time closer to goal. And Matic the culprit now.

70' Rashford is eager to win the ball bit Bowen shields it well and wins the freekick. The striker goes into the book for that challenge. The setpiece is headed away by Matic.

68' Matic gives the ball away this time and Declan Rice gets it. He isn't challenged as he avances, cuts inside and shoots just above De Gea's goal.

62' Noble picks up a loose ball, finds Bowen on the right flank - whose shot is deflected behind by De Gea for a corner. And the delivery from the corner is tame. Clumsy from Wan-Bissaka to give the ball away.

60' Matic combined with Fernandes to find Pogba and the Frenchman shoots wide from 30 yards out. He is looking for his first goal at Old Trafford since West Ham's last visit.

55' Williams goes down too easy in the box and looks for the penalty but the referee isn't convinced.

54' The ball falls to Rashford from a corner but he wasn't expecting it and his touch lets him down.

53' Bowen gets the better of Williams, cuts onto his left foot but he is closed down by two defenders before he can shoot.

51' GREENWOOD SCORES! His 17th goal of the season and Manchester United is back on level terms.

Excellent build-up from Manchester United. Greenwood passed to Martial, got it back, gave it to Martial again, got it back again and then smashed his shot low at the near post.

47' The Hammers make a bright start this time around. Quick, short passes to keep possession.

46' West Ham gets the second half started. Manchester United made a halftime change, with Wan-Bissaka replacing Fosu-Mensah.

45' + 2' Anotinio scores and West Ham takes the lead.

45' PENALTY! West Ham gets a penalty after Rice's shot from the free-kick is stopped by Pogba's hands.

45' One minutes added at the end of the half.

44' Fosu-Mensah lunges in and brings down Antonio at the edge of the box. And he picks up the game's first yellow card.

43' Johnson's high cross dips towards Lindelof at the far post but Antonio comes in and heads it straight at De Gea.

39' Rashford finds Williams' run who cuts back to Greenwood but a host of white shirts block the youngster's shot.

36' Rashford stings Fabianski’s gloves with a dipping 30-yard strike. The keeper doesn't catch it but pushed it away to safety.

33' A bit of a fight from West Ham now, with possession a little more evently distributed in the last few minutes.

30' A sustained spell of possession for West Ham 30 minutes into the game. Ends with Matic blocking Bowen and the Hammers winning their second corner of the game. Very patient play from the visiting side.

The corner is headed wide by Ogbonna.

27' A long spell of United possession and the buildup ends with Rashford taking on Johnson and losing. Good cnocentration from the youngster.

23' Pogba draws defenders towards him and then releases Fosu-Mensah but the right-back has just strayed offside. With that, there's a break in play for a drinks break. Or, like most managers see it, a break to work on tactics.

20' Antonio finds space down the right wing and his low cross into the box forces a corner. The delivery is cleared and when the ball comes back in again, Ogbonna fouls Maguire and that ends the attack. That was the first proper glimpse of the Hammers attacking tonight.

18' West Ham's backline has dropped deeper since the start of the game and that is now making life difficult for the Manchester United forwards. Good mid-game change from the Hammers.

16' The home side dominating so far and West Ham is fighting to get a foothold in the game.

14' Rashford finds Fernandes in the box with a fantastic ball but the Portuguese's touch is not good. The ball rolls out for a goalkick. That was a fantastic chance to open the scoring.

11' Greenwood tugs Antonio at the edge of the Man Utd box and West Ham has a free-kick in a good position. Cresswell whips in a good ball but no one gets to the end of it.

10' Manchester United with 85% of the possession so far. Backs-to-the-wall so far from the Hammers.

9' Fornals makes a good interception to stop Fosu-Mensah from getting to the end of a through ball.

6' Bowen makes a good run down the right flank but Brandom Williams does well to stay with him and wins a throw-in in the process.

STAT: Greenwood is playing his 50th game for Manchester United tonight - the youngest player to achieve the feat since Ryan Giggs.

3' Fernandes' finds Martial with a good ball and the Frenchman sees his effort palmed away by Fabianski. And 30 seconds later Greenwood runs across the edge of the box and shoots straight at a diving Fabianski.

2' Bright start from the home side until Marcus Rashford is caught offside on the left flank. The Red Devils need a good start following the humbling at the hands of Chelsea last weekend.

KICKOFF! Manchester United gets the match at Old Trafford underway.

The players are ready for action but we will first have a minute’s silence for Alex Dawson, the former United striker, who died this week aged 80.

— Team News: West Ham United

West Ham's attckers are in good form too, with Michail Antonio having scored more Premier League goals than anyone else since the season restart in June and Jarrod Bowen picking up four assists in his last five games.

Moyes could also consider handing opportunities to some fringe players with survival now secured. That would mean another start for 20-year-old Ben Johnson at right-back, with Ryan Fredericks sidelined along with Robert Snodgrass.

Team news: Manchester United

Manchester United will be without Eric Bailly after he was stretchered off in the FA Cup defeat to Chelsea following a clash of heads with Harry Maguire.

Despite returning to Manchester from the hospital, the strict concussion protocols could mean that he is unlikely to be available for the last two games of the domestic campaign.

Luke Shaw remains a major doubt after twisting his ankle against Southampton, Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe remain unavailable.

The likes of Anthony Martial, Paul Pogba and Mason Greenwood all sat out from the start on Sunday, but the in-form trio are expected to return as part of a Man United attacking line in the midst of a prolific run.

Bruno Fernandes has been central to that, and since his debut for the club in February no Premier League player has been involved in more goals across all competitions than his 17 - scoring nine times and creating eight more.

The Champions League race

Manchester United's FA Cup hopes ended at the hands of Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday. The semifinal defeat was bad but there was some positive news for it that day.

Leicester City's defeat against Tottenham Hotspur sees Man United control its destiny as far as qualification for next season's Champions League is concerned.

The Red Devils are level on points and goal difference with the Foxes, and have a game in hand. It they win tonight, they simply need to avoid defeat on the final day to secure a top four finish.

Even if they draw tonight, they just have to avoid defeat against Leicester in the final game of the season to wrap up a top-four finish for only the third time since Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down.

Former Manchester United boss David Moyes is making a return to the Old Trafford tonight.

Manchester United can move into the top four of the Premier League table for the first time since September when it welcomes West Ham United to Old Trafford on Wednesday.

The Red Devils' Champions League qualification in their hands as we head into the final two games of the season.

Other the otherhand, West Ham is all but mathematically safe from the threat of relegation this campaign.
