  2. FULL-TIME: Another thriller at Old Trafford and Manchester United have to thank Javier Hernandez for keeping up their 100% start to this season's Champions League group stage. Despite Alan giving Braga a two goal lead, United hit back thanks to the Mexican before Jonny Evans' equaliser and Chicharito's winner with 15 minutes remaining.

    The ball into the mixer is headed out for a United throw.

  11. 85

    Viana looks for Leandro Salino's run down the left, but he's offside.

    Hugo Viana's free-kick is cleared by Ryan Giggs and the visitors are not giving up that easily with the clock ticking down.

  13. 83

    Darren Fletcher pushes down his man in the middle of the park for a free-kick.

    Meanwhile, David De Gea loses his concentration at one end and almost gifts Braga an equaliser, while Robin van Persie fires over the crossbar at the other end.

  15. 80

    SUBSTITUTION: Meanwhile, Helder Barbosa replaces Ruben Amorim for the visitors.

  16. 79

    SUBSTITUTION: Ryan Giggs replaces goalscorer Javier Hernandez for the hosts.

  17. 78

    Meanwhile, Hugo Viana picks up the ball and fires a cracker just wide.

  18. 77

    Sir Alex Ferguson takes the credit for a change in formation and a higher tempo at the start of the second half.

  19. Braga won't get that point as things stand because Manchester United take the lead thanks to a wonderful goal. Tom Cleverley's delicious right-wing cross is gobbled up in the six-yard box by Chicharito for his second goal of the night.

  20. 75
