90+4' 

FULL TIME: MANCHESTER CITY ARE CHAMPIONS. Manchester United's risible, pathetic display today has seen them wipe out the goodwill from last week with a single, sorry showing. WBA were good enough, and might pull off a famous escape, but the story is that Mourinho's side has once again rolled over.

90+3'

88' 

Two minutes left for United to pull their finger out of their redacted, and into City's eye for one last time this season.

86' 

United fans are leaving now, as the whole season looks to have fallen in on itself out of nowhere.

85' 

Sturridge on for Rondon.

84' 

United appear to have nothing in their guts or their heads.

82' 

West Brom aren't just sitting back. When the pitch opens up, they are happy to drive forward, and United don't close them down anything likek quickly enough. They're happily keeping the ball now, as United let them.

81' 

McClean advances on goal and blasts a shot just wide of goal. On the touchline, Mourinho is wet and fed up.

79' 

Corner on the left for United. Rashford will take. He curls it in, it's cleared at the near post, and United collect it again.

20 minutes or so left, with the pressure growing. Lingard receives a Lukaku through ball, he tries to flick it back to Lukaku or maybe Martial to his left, but trips over the ball.

69'

Lingard sends a shot flying from the edge of the box. It's deflected just wide off Brunt, but the ref gives a goalkick.

63' 

Half an hour left and it seems to be doggerel from here on in.

62' 

Rodriguez smacks one from distance along the wet surface. It is rodding it down here.

60' 

Mata's free kick is headed behind by Hegazi. Dawson, who had asked to come off, is limping but seems OK to continue.

45+1' 

Pogba's shot from the edge of the box is deflected by Hegazi. Nothing from the corner, and that's half time. See you in 15 minutes.

44' 

A minute left of normal time. Someone needs to tell United's players that they don't want to be the clowns. Apparently it needs saying more than once a season.

43' 

CHEAT!

42' 

Dawson heads across goal, and Smalling is on hand to lean back and hook it away.

41' 

Corner for West Brom on the right wing. Brunt will take.

38' 

Pogba looks up, sees Lukaku calling for a cross, so he loops a vicious shot over the bar after spotting Foster off his line. It was well over.

36' 

Lukaku is threaded in by an excellent Mata flick, but the striker's touch is a tad heavy, and Foster reacts well to race out and claim.

34' 

Philiips chases a miscontrol from Matic, but Lindelof tidies up.

33'

Matic can't recreate his effort against Crystal Palace, taking a shot from distance that goes wide of the post.

27'

25'

McClean curls in another deep cross to the back post, Rondon nods down, and De Gea smartly dives to his right to save.

22' 

Pogba concedes a goal kick with some high pressing, which will at least keep the dads happy.

18'

Lukaku brings down a high ball into the box, he turns and plays it into the path of Herrera in the box, and there's a yelp for a penaty when Dawson challenges him - it's an obvious trip. The ball is worked a moment later to Lukaku, and he fires a left-foot volley straight at Foster from point-blank range.

16' 

Hegazi cuts out Young's inswinging cross to Lukaku.

13' 

McClean's cross from the left curls towards Rondon at the back post, and he heads well over. West Brom are doing well now.

12'

Rodriguez finds Rondon on the edge of the box after a poor bit of work from United in midfield. He shifts the ball right for Livermore, who aims a low shot to the corner before De Gea leaps to his left to push it away.

10' 

Mata races onto a scooped pass over the top, but his shot is palmed away by Foster, and he's ruled offside anyway.

9' 

A rare spell of possession for West Brom now, and into United's half as well. It's a brief moment.

7'

Sanchez and Mata team up on the left, releasing the ball into the six yard box, but Sanchez can't get hold of it. Pogba then follows up with a low drive from 30 yards, but it's easily saved.

5' 

Rodriguez drives into the box, and as he looks like he'll skin Lindelof, he slips to the ground. As he does so, he catches Lindelof's calf, and he limps away.

3' 

Mata chases down Foster, who hoofs a clearance straight down the pitch to De Gea.

With five minutes to go, send me your predictions via the magic of Twitter, at @lxndrnthrtn. I'm going for 1-1.

15:50 

David de Gea has been nominated as a player of the year, the only nomination for United. West Brom have had no players nominated.

15:45 

Feel free to send your excellent comments on the game to @lxndrnthrtn.

15:40 

Another reason for United to win is to keep Liverpool at bay. They have two games in hand over them, but just a point advantage. They are probably fine for second place, given Liverpool's Champions League distractions, but there is no reason to take risk.

15:35 

Jose Mourinho has been speaking about next season: "Next season, we are going to try to improve, but let's see what happens. Maybe also City will invest massively and they don't let the others close the gap to them, I don't know. But it is not about us and them, it is about us and them and Liverpool and Arsenal and Chelsea and Spurs. It is not City and United. It is about the six."

15:30 

There's no Jonny Evans for West Brom, and apart from that it's the strongest side they can probably put out. It's notable that Kryhowiak starts on the bench, as does Daniel Sturridge, with the World Cup looming.

15:25 

Manchester United will want to win today in order to delay Manchester City's triumph and perhaps even put a little bit of a marker for next season. To that end, Sanchez and Pogba start after an impressive showing against Manchester City in the derby last weekend.
