Match Commentary

94' FULL TIME Well, after the opening half an hour it wasn't pretty from United but they have managed to eek out a win and save the blushes of their new keeper - again. Ashley Young gets the credit and United do what Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea couldn't - win on the opening day.
93' He nearly got his head on it too but De Gea claims the looping ball and chooses not to exploit an empty net with a quick ball into the deep.
93' West Brom win a free kick and Foster is going up!
