  1. 90+4

    And there is the final whistle, it's all over. Swansea really dug in during the second half to grab a hard-earned point. Man Utd will be pretty disappointed that they could not convert their pressure into a winner after half-time and they have ultimately seen their lead at the top of the table cut to four points.

  2. 90+3

    Swansea relieve some pressure as they take it out of their own half. Just 30 seconds left and it looks like they will hold Man Utd here.

  3. 90+1

    Vorm races out to head away a Van Persie through ball. He is caught off his line by Giggs but the veteran cannot find the net with his first-time lob.

  4. 90

    A Man Utd attack is broken up by one of Scholes' famously mistimed tackles. He is also shown the yellow card.

  5. 89

    Man Utd with all of the possession now. There will be four minutes of added time.

  6. 88

    Giggs plays in Evra but the Frenchman cannot pick out a team-mate with the cross.

  7. 86

    Agustien gets a great ovation as he comes off to be replaced by Schechter.

  8. 86

    Swansea are really holding on here. Man Utd look much the more likely to grab a winner in the last five minutes or so.

  9. 85

    Man Utd make another change as Cleverley is brought off for Scholes.

  10. 83

    Swansea hit a long, hoepful ball forward but De Gea comes and collects.

  11. 81

    Giggs loses control off the ball and slides in on Tiendalli from behind. The home fans want a booking but no card is shown. Swansea now have the chance to finally clear the danger.

  12. 79

    Man Utd continue to come forward as Van Persie and then Young have shots blocked. There are appeals for handball after the second, which Davies blocked on the line. Again his arm was down by his side.

  13. 77

    Rooney takes the free kick but it is a tame one and he is immediately brought off for Giggs. Man Utd win a corner though and Carrick gets his head to it, it seems to be heading goalwards but Vorm manages to touch it onto the bar. Great save!

  14. 76

    It was Dyer's challenge which drew the free-kick but Williams kicked the ball away and it hit Van Persie. Both Williams and Van Persie are booked. The referee must have judged Williams' actions intentional while Van Persie was cautioned for his reaction.

  15. 74

    Van Persie wins a free-kick on the edge of the box and loses his temper completely. He is furious at Williams but is restrained by his team-mates.

  16. 72

    Swansea have an almighty mix up in defence but Rooney cannot capitalise and the hosts get a big let off.

  17. 71

    Van Persie slots in a great ball for Hernandez but the Mexican cannot get off a clean shot and Vorm makes the save.

  18. 69

    Swansea make another change. De Guzman, who has played well, comes off to be replaced by Luke Moore.

  19. 68

    Tiendalli plays it past Rooney and is taken out by the Man Utd player, who is shown the yellow card for the foul.

  20. 66

    Rooney whips in a cross which Van Persie meets with a hooked volley which hits the bar! It goes behind and the referee erroneously gives a corner but nothing comes of it.
