  1. Man Utd 1 Shakhtar 0. All over and United get back to winning ways and finish as winners of Group A.

  2. 90+2

    Moyes still shuffling nervously in his seat. Shakhtar win a free-kick. They play it short. Odd decision given that they need at least one goal. Srna able to win a corner.

  3. 90+1

    Long ball down the left finds Van Persie moving into the box. He waits for Pyatov to commit himself and dinks the ball towards the target. He is unfortunate to see a clever effort hit the side-netting.

  4. Two minutes of stoppage-time to be played.

  5. 90

    Bernard on the charge and skipping past tackles. He gets to the edge of the box, where he is halted by Cleverley. United not prepared to let this slip.

  6. 89

    Rooney tries a bit too much in midfield, but is clipped by Fernando and gets a free-kick inside the centre cirlce. All United need as they run down the clock.

  7. 88

    Final change for United sees Valencia replace Buttner. Rafael will come over to left-back. Also a change up top by Shakhtar as Ferreyra replaces Adriano.

  8. 87

    Shkahtr almost giving up. The pace they displayed in the first half is gone. They look to have run out of ideas. Speaks volumes for United that they have frustrated them so well.

  9. 86

    Srna bombs down the right. He can find Stepanenko and get the ball back. As he enters the box, he drills low at De Gea from the angle of the penalty area. Safe hands from the United keeper.

  10. 85

    Another change being readied by United. On the field, Shakhtar win a couple of throws down their left but are then forced backwards. United sitting in and plugging all the gaps.

  11. 84

    Set-piece is played short. United fans getting behind their troops. Welcome return to winning ways for them at the moment. Not long to hold out now. Moyes down on the touchline kicking every ball.

  12. 83

    United happy to shut up shop now. Shakhtar, who looked so bright early on are now labouring a little. They concede a free-kick inside the United half.

  13. 82

    Rooney bundles past Kucher and spreads wide to the left for Van Persie. He forces a corner off Srna. United where they want to be. Rooney delivers and the ball is allowed to run through the box. Cleverley arrives on the volley, but slices into the stands from a tight angle.

  14. 81

    Kucher next into the book for talking back to the referee. Frustration starting to mount for the visitors. They can't find a way through and are heading out of the Champions League.

  15. 80

    Shakhtar make another change. Fernando sent on in place of Fred. Another holding midfielder. Odd choice.

  16. 79

    Costa with a free-kick which is again met by Jones. Shakhtar now the ones trying to force the issue. United can drop a little deeper.

  17. 78

    Ball worked into Teixeira. He looks to have run the ball out, but is awarded a throw. United pushed back, but Evans can nod out to relative safety. Desperate effort from Rakitskiy sails high into the stands.

  18. 77

    Jones patrolling in front of the back four. Clean sheet and a win the order of the day for United. Cleverley becomes the second man into the book for a lunging challenge. Srna also booked for dissent.

  19. 76

    Cleverley into Januzaj. He looks over the top for Kagawa, but Kucher can grow enough. The ball drops to Rooney, who can't thread a pass into a run of Cleverley.

  20. 75

    Discussion between referee and official behind the goal. Decision is goal kick, when it looked like it should be a corner. United not complaining. They can now knock the ball across midfield.
