      The draw means that Manchester United's unbeaten start to the season goes on, and they are next in action against Swansea on Sunday. As for Newcastle, they are still searching for their first win of the campaign and first have to face Northampton Town in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday before hosting

      What a great end to the game that was! No matter what they tried to do, Manchester United just couldn't find a way past Newcastle's determined defence, who were excellent after successfully weathering a dangerous spell of early pressure from the hosts. The hosts tried everything they could, launchin

      The two teams are making their way back out onto the pitch ahead of the start of the second half. Neither side have made any substitutions during the half-time break.
    • 0'
      It's been a slightly frustrating opening 45 minutes for Manchester United, who started incredibly well but were unable to make their early dominance count. Rooney thought that he had fired the hosts into the lead after just four minutes only to have his goal drought continued by the linesman's flag,

      Louis van Gaal has decided to make just one change to the Manchester United side that started the 3-1 victory against Club Brugge during the week, with Bastian Schweinsteiger coming into the squad to replace Michael Carrick in what will be his first start for the club.

      There’s just over 15 minutes left to go until until kick-off, so let’s have a look at how the two teams will be lining up this afternoon…
    • 0'
      History is not on Newcastle’s side ahead of what is sure to be a tough afternoon. They have won just once at Old Trafford since 1972, with that victory coming during the middle of David Moyes’ stint in charge of the Red Devils. Both home and away, the Magpies have continually struggled against the 2

      As for Newcastle, they have suffered a slow start to the new campaign, picking up just one point from their opening two games. An already tough clash away to Swansea last weekend was made even more difficult by Daryl Janmaat, who needlessly picked up two bookings in the first half to leave the Magpi
    • 0'
      It’s been a solid yet unspectacular start to the season for this afternoon’s hosts, who head into their second home game with two 1-0 wins under their belts, meaning that they are one of just four clubs to boast a 100% record thus far. Tuesday evening also saw them mark their return to the Champions

      Good afternoon and welcome to our live text commentary of today’s Premier League clash between Manchester United and Newcastle United. My name is Ben Cullimore and I will be keeping you up to date with all of the action from Old Trafford.
    • 1'
      And we're off! Newcastle get us underway, attacking from right to left.
    • 2'
      Manchester United work the ball around nicely before Shaw tries to pick out Rooney with a low cross from the left wing, but the attempted pass is cut out well by Taylor on the edge of the penalty area.
    • 3'
      The hosts come forward once again, this time down the middle of the pitch. Schweinsteiger lifts a deft volleyed pass over the top of the Newcastle defence and into the path of Januzaj, but it's slightly overhit and ends up bouncing into the hands of Krul.
    • 4'
      Rooney scores, but it's offside! The captain breaks through the middle of the Newcastle defence to get onto the end of a great pass from Januzaj. He then charges forward before calmly slotting the ball past the outstretched limbs of Krul. The linesman's flag is immediately raised, however, and, as a
    • 6'
      Wijnaldum breaks away on Newcastle's first attack of the game but is quickly dispossessed by Darmian down the left wing, allowing Manchester United to push forward quickly. Rooney picks up the ball 25 yards out and decides to fire a thumping strike, but this time it ends up flying straight into the
    • 8'
      Lovely play by Manchester United! Memphis sprints down the left wing, beating Mbemba with ease before cutting the ball back to Mata. The Spaniard then tries to play a quick one-two with Rooney but the captain's attempted pass is cut out at the vital moment by Coloccini.
    • 9'
      Unsurprisingly, Manchester United have completely bossed the possession during the opening period of the game. Newcastle are camped deep inside their own half of the pitch and are finding it extremely difficult to break out of it due to the intense pressure being put on them by the determined hosts.
    • 11'
      Darmian twists and turns just outside of the Newcastle penalty area before being brought down by a poor challenge from Perez, resulting in a free kick for Manchester United in a very dangerous position.
    • 12'
      Mata steps up and fires a curling shot from the set-piece but it's not hit hard enough and Krul is easily able to stop the Spaniard's strike.
    • 14'
      Januzaj battles his way down the right wing before earning his side their first corner of the game. It's swung in by Memphis but is half dealt with by the Newcastle defence before coming back to the Dutchman, whose follow-up cross is deflected out of play by Haidara.
    • 15'
      This time Memphis sends his corner deep, and it flies over the top of the Newcastle defence and towards Januzaj, who then fires a low cross off Taylor and out for a throw-in. Manchester United take it short but are immediately put under pressure by the visitors' back four, forcing them to work the b
    • 16'
      Great save by Krul! Manchester United are all over Newcastle! They keep pushing forward, forcing the visitors' defence to sit deep inside their own half of the pitch. The ball pinballs around the penalty area before reaching Mata, but his low strike is pushed round the near post by a lovely diving s
    • 17'
      Another chance for Rooney! This time he beats the Newcastle back line before spinning and firing a shot from the edge of the penalty area, but his curling strike is sent too near to Krul, who, once again, is able to save the captain's thumping effort.
    • 19'
      After spending the vast majority of the game thus far camped inside their own half of the pitch, Newcastle are finally able to push forward on what looks like a dangerous attacking move. However, it's brought to an end by Darmian, who cynically trips Haidara as the left-back was charging down the wi
    • 20'
      Manchester United are just about able to deal with the set-piece before Newcastle push forward once again. Wijnaldum and Haidara play a lovely one-two on the edge of the penalty area before the latter penetrates the box, but his final touch is poor and sends the ball towards Blind, who is then broug
    • 22'
      Memphis is running riot down the left flank! The Dutchman sprints down the wing before beating Mbemba with ease. He then cuts into the penalty area before trying to beat Krul at the near post, but the goalkeeper is a step ahead and easily stops the low strike.
    • 24'
      Mitrovic hits the crossbar! A looping, deep cross from Mbemba flies right onto the head of the Serbian striker, who beats Romero with a great effort from the edge of the penalty area that ends up ricocheting off the woodwork. What a goal that would have been!
    • 26'
      What a chance for Memphis! Anita loses out to Januzaj in the middle of the pitch, allowing the youngster to charge forward before teeing up the aforementioned Dutch winger. He flies into the left-hand side of the penalty area before beating Krul and trying to cut the ball back to Rooney, but Mbemba
    • 27'
      It's end to end stuff! Newcastle immediately break away on a counter attack of their own, with Obertan flying down the right flank before firing a low cross off Blind and out for a corner. The set-piece is initially dealt with by the Manchester United defender before a deep cross once again finds Mi
    • 29'
      Obertan is left in acres of space down the right wing, allowing him to take his time on the ball before sending a low cross into the heart of the penalty area. It's poorly hit, however, and can only find Schweinsteiger, who calmly deals with the danger.
    • 31'
      Memphis is dispossessed by Mbemba, who then charges forward through the acres of space left in the centre of the pitch by the Manchester United midfield. He tries to find Mitrovic, who is the only Newcastle player in the hosts' half of the pitch, with a long ball but he scuffs it completely and it t
    • 32'
      Memphis twists and turns down the left wing, desperately trying to find a way past Colback. The Newcastle midfielder holds firm and dispossesses the Dutchman before being pushed to the ground, resulting in a free kick for the visitors deep inside their own half of the pitch.
    • 34'
      Wijnaldum embarks on a great run forward, weaving in between a sea of red shirts before teeing up Haidara. The left-back tries to beat Darmian but his first touch is poor, allowing the Italian to regain possession before kick-starting another quick Manchester United counter attack.
    • 35'
      Manchester United seem to have lost some of the intensity that characterised their play in the early stages of the game. They patiently work the ball around the middle of the pitch as they try to find a way through the wall of white shirts camped in front of them, but a poor touch from Schweinsteige
    • 36'
      Perez, who has been almost non-existant during the first half, picks up the ball on the left wing and immediately sends a curling cross towards Mitrovic, but it's completely overhit and sails comfortably out of play for a Manchester United goal kick.
    • 37'
      Again, Perez finds himself with a ball at his feet midway inside the Manchester United half of the pitch, and this time he decides to unleash a shot that is deflected off Schneiderlin and into the path of Obertan on the right-hand side of the penalty area. Romero rushes out to meet the ball but miss
    • 38'
      Manchester United work the ball around nicely, with Mata playing a key role just outside of the Newcastle box. He works the ball out to Darmian, who immediately sends a dangerous cross into the middle of the penalty area, but it's slightly too high for Rooney, who is unable to make contact with the
    • 40'
      Haidara is now finding far more joy down the left flank. He beats Darmian and charges towards the byline before trying to swing a low cross into the box, but it's deflected out of play for a corner by Smalling. Newcastle decide to take the resulting set-piece short but Perez spends far too long on t
    • 42'
      Great opportunity for Perez! A wonderful pass from Mbemba finds Wijnaldum, who muscles his way past Smalling before forcing the centre-back into sending his clearance into the feet of the aforementioned Spaniard. He immediately unleashes a low strike that looks set for the bottom left-hand corner of
    • 43'
      The resulting corner pinballs around the Manchester United penalty area before finding Mitrovic at the far post, but the Serbian is slightly off balance and can only send his headed effort away from goal and, subsequently, away from danger.
    • 44'
      Colback is dispossessed by Januzaj in a dangerous position near the halfway line, allowing the Belgian youngster to break away on a blisteringly quick counter attack. He flies towards the edge of the penalty before teeing up Mata, who then cuts the ball back to Memphis, who is left completely unmark
    • 45'
      The fourth official has indicated that there will be just one minute of added time.
    • 46'
      And we're underway once again!
    • 48'
      Memphis and Shaw link up well down the left flank before the latter tries to beat Mbemba on the edge of the penalty area, but the defender holds firm and dispossesses the Manchester United left-back with an excellent tackle.
    • 50'
      Manchester United are in control of possession in the middle of the pitch but, as was the case at the end of the first half, they are continuing to find it difficult to beat a very well-organised Newcastle defence.
    • 51'
      Damian flies into the right-hand side of the penalty area before trying to cut a low pass across the face of the goal, but Perez does well to dispossess the Dutchman near the byline, resulting in a corner for the hosts.
    • 52'
      Ball after ball is flung into the Newcastle penalty area but all of them fail to trouble the Newcastle back line, who easily deal with the danger before breaking away on a quick counter attack.
    • 53'
      Haidara charges down the left flank before cutting inside and working the ball over to the opposite wing. It finds Obertan, who then quickly tees up Mbemba, but the right-back's looping cross is poorly hit and flies safely into the hands of Romero.
    • 54'
      Again, Haidara finds joy as he takes on Darmian, and this time he ends up earning Newcastle a corner after firing a low cross off the Italian. The resulting set-piece is sent into a dangerous position in the middle of the penalty area but Blind beats Perez to the ball and heads it away from danger.
    • 56'
      It just doesn't seem to be working for Manchester United at the moment. They are seeing plenty of the ball deep inside the Newcastle half of the pitch but are looking increasingly bereft of ideas as time goes on.
    • 57'
      Memphis embarks on a great run down the left flank before cutting inside and heading towards the Newcastle penalty area, but Obertan ends up pushing the Dutchman over from behind, resulting in a free kick for Manchester United in an extremely dangerous position 25 yards away from goal.
    • 58'
      Memphis steps up and fires a curling strike from the set-piece, but it's poorly hit and fails to beat the wall in front of him. The ball comes back to the Dutchman, however, and he then sends a looping cross towards Smalling, but the centre-back is slightly offside and the linesman's flag is raised
    • 59'
      SI M. Carrick SO B. Schweinsteiger
    • 59'
      Manchester United have made their first substitution of the game, with Carrick coming on to take the place of Schweinsteiger.
    • 60'
      The hosts push forward in numbers once again, with another deep cross, this time from Mata, being sent towards Smalling at the far post. The centre-back wrestles with Coloccini but is unable to find a way past the Newcastle captain, who then wins his side a free kick.
    • 62'
      Mata picks out Darmian with a lovely through-ball, and the Italian sprints forward before earning Manchester United yet another corner. It's sent into the heart of the penalty area once again but, as was the case before, it's easily dealt with by the Newcastle defence.
    • 63'
      Memphis twists and turns on the edge of the Newcastle penalty area before whipping a curling strike towards the far corner of the net, but it takes a slight deflection that sends it over the top of the crossbar and out for a corner.
    • 64'
      Excellent opportunity for Smalling! Mata's cross from the corner ends up flying through the sea of white shirts in the middle of the penalty area and towards the aforementioned defender, who meets it at the back post. His first touch is poor, however, and sends the ball away from him before he can s
    • 66'
      Newcastle are camped firmly inside their own half of the pitch as they desperately try to find a way past the determined Newcastle back line. Januzaj is unable to find a way past Haidara, howevever, and then ends up pulling the Frenchman to the ground near the corner flag, resulting in a free kick f
    • 67'
      SI J. Hernández SO B. Schweinsteiger
    • 67'
      Januzaj makes his way off the pitch to be replaced by Hernandez for the final 23 minutes of the game.
    • 69'
      SI F. Thauvin SO B. Schweinsteiger
    • 69'
      And now Newcastle have made a change, with Obertan making way for new boy Thauvin, who comes on to make his debut appearance for the Magpies.
    • 70'
      Shaw clips Thauvin as the Frenchman darts down the right wing, resulting in a yellow card for the young defender.
    • 71'
      Thauvin is immediately involved in the action, doing well to win his side a corner bfeore sending it into the middle of the pitch. It's sent slightly too near to Romero, however, and the goalkeeper rushes out to deal with the danger.
    • 72'
      Romero immediately launches a long pass up the pitch towards Memphis, but Haidara gets the right side of the Dutchman and muscles his out of the way before playing the ball back to Krul.
    • 74'
      What a chance for Mata! Rooney is left in acres of space down the left wing, allowing him to charge down the flank before sending a fantastic cross over to the aforementioned Spaniard. He meets it at the back post but ends up smashing his close-range volley over the top of the crossbar from close ra
    • 75'
      Chance after chance for Manchester United! A great cross from Carrick finds Memphis, who sends his header back towards Rooney. The captain then nods it into the path of Mata, who immediately unleashes a rocket of a volley, but it flies into the aforementioned Dutchman before finding the hands of Kru
    • 76'
      Wonderful opportunity for Shaw! The young left-back cuts inside from the wing and plays a lovely one-two with Schneiderlin on the edge of the penalty area before unleashes a great low strike, but Krul does well to stop it with a strong save.
    • 77'
      SI A. Valencia SO B. Schweinsteiger
    • 77'
      Manchester United have made their final change of the afternoon, with Darmian making his way off the pitch to be replaced by Valencia.
    • 78'
      SI C. Tioté SO B. Schweinsteiger
    • 78'
      Meanwhile, Newcastle have also made a substitution, with Tiote coming on to take the place of Perez.
    • 80'
      What an excellent save by Krul! Mata spins on the edge of the penalty area before firing a low shot that bounces off Taylor and into the path of Hernandez, who immediately unleashes a follow-up stike from close range. It looks set for the back of the net but the Newcastle goalkeeper is just about ab
    • 82'
      Manchester United are throwing everything they've got at Newcastle, but it just doesn't seem to be working, no matter what they try. Memphis twists and turns down the left flank before curling a lovely cross towards the head of Hernandez, but the striker is beaten to the ball by Krul, who charges ou
    • 83'
      The hosts move the ball around extremely well on the right-hand side of the penalty area before Mata and Hernandez try to play a quick one-two, but the Mexican really should have shot instead of passing, and his error brings an end to another dangerous Manchester United attack.
    • 85'
      Valencia goes close! A deep cross from Carrick finds Rooney, who immediately nods the ball down to the aforementioned Ecuadorian. He bursts into the right-hand side of the penalty area before unleashing a thumping shot that strikes Coloccini before flying out of play for a Manchester United corner.
    • 87'
      Carrick finds Rooney on the edge of the Newcastle penalty area with an excellent low pass. The captain's first touch is great but he bundles into Colback as he tries to turn to shoot, sending the midfielder to the ground and resulting in a free kick for the visitors, much to the frustration of the M
    • 88'
      SI P. Cissé SO B. Schweinsteiger
    • 88'
      Newcastle have made their final change of the afternoon, with Mitrovic making way for Cisse for the final few minutes.
    • 89'
      Mata tries to muscle his way through a sea of white shirts on the edge of the Newcastle box, but he's unable to do so and Wijnaldum comes out on top before clearing the danger. The visitors have defended incredibly well during the second half.
    • 90'
      Manchester United are pushing as many bodies forward as possible, but it just doesn't look as if it's going to be their day. Newcastle have defended brilliantly and fully deserve to leave with a point.
    • EXTRA TIME
    • 90'
      And now Carrick goes close! The ball bounces around the penalty area before reaching the midfielder, who unleashes a rocket of a volley that deflects just wide of the far post. What a goal that would have been!
    • HALF TIME
    • 90'
      What a chance for Thauvin to win the game for Newcastle! The visitors break away on a brilliant counter attack, with three on two deep inside the Manchester United half of the pitch. Cisse holds up the ball well before beating Blind and sending a low cross-cum-shot across the face of goal, but the a
    • 90'
      Smalling hits the post! A deep cross is sent towards Memphis but can only find Mbemba, who then plays the ball out of play for a corner.
