'That's what goalkeepers are paid for'

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

West Brom

Tony Pulis on Boaz Myhill's performance at Old Trafford: "Goalkeepers, that's what they're paid for - to have a game like that now and then. Luckily, for Bo it was here."

Faint praise indeed from the boss.

Communication key for Van Gaal

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal on how his side can improve: "Only by communicating. The players are now very disappointed and the manger is disappointed.

"We have to evaluate what we are doing bad and what we are dong good and how we can improve."

I remembered what the coach said - Myhill

West Brom goalkeeper Boaz Myhill on his penalty save from Robin van Persie: "The keeper coach told me certain players like to go a certain way.

"I looked at him and remember what the coach had said and saved it. Happy days."

How Manchester United could do with Cristiano Ronaldo? And maybe even Javier Hernandez? Both are playing in a vital game for Real Madrid in La Liga. Ronaldo has scored twice as Real aim to keep up the pressure on leaders Barcelona, who won 8-0 earlier on.

Live text commentary of Real Madrid's match against Sevilla is up on our football pages. It is currently 2-1 to Real Madrid.

'We only focus on us'

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

West Brom

West Brom manager Tonly Pulis on kicking off after their relegation rivals: "I don't like playing at this time.

"I went berserk today because someone had a mobile on trying to find out the other scores. I told them we only focus on us.

"I came in after the game and they told me all the teams below us had won so it makes it even sweeter."

Pulis hails players' commitment

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

West Brom

West Brom manager Tony Pulis: "You need to be organised, resilient and have a bit of luck. We had that in abundance.

Tony Pulis
Empics

"It takes a lot of work and commitment from the players - 90 per cent of it is dealing with people off the ball.

"I don't think it was a penalty. The referee was 60 yards away the linesman was 10 yards away and gives a corner, so I don't know how that happens."

We must learn from this - Mata

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

Man Utd

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata: "It's a frustrating afternoon for us. If you don't score, it's impossible to win.

"We know some teams will do this and we have to find a way to beat them. We need to learn from this and keep going.

"We know that Liverpool and more teams are coming from behind so we need more points as soon as possible."

'We had enough chances'

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

Man Utd

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said: "We knew in advance that they'd park the bus, we have to deal with that.

"In the second half we had enough chances - you have to finish. It's now the third match (they have lost in a row). We have to take care of that. It's very difficult."

DSSBrooks: If LVG cannot get top four, it's a firing. And he can take Falcao, van Persie and Di Maria with him. Klopp is worth a go.

DeathApeDisco: United have one top midfielder, Michael Carrick, and one top striker, Wayne Rooney. One absent, one out of position, awful.

Matt Price: Full credit to Tony Pulis - he's simply fantastic as a manager. Van Gaal, you've just been Pulis-ed!

How they stand - bottom of the Premier League

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

Bottom of the table

So West Brom are seven points clear of the bottom three and, although mathematically they could still be relegated, surely these three points will be enough to ensure another season of Premier League football at the Hawthorns.

For all you nervous West Brom fans still panicking, Premier League survival can be guaranteed if they win at Newcastle next Saturday.

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has just faced the cameras. His first line "We knew they would come and park the bus."

How long does someone have to be in charge for them to not be seen as a new manager anymore?

'Finishing fourth is not good enough for United'

West Brom's former Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher on his former club's fortunes: "The goal all along for them was to finish top four and Chelsea were always going to be tough to catch.

"Manchester United have a new manager and it's a transitional period for them.

"I'm sure everyone at the club will be striving to win the league next season, finishing fourth is not good enough for Manchester United."

'It's a massive result for us'

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

West Brom

West Brom midfielder Darren Fletcher: "We worked on making it difficult. We tried to make sure the were playing in front of us and dealt with their crosses.

"We knew we'd have to ride our luck and we did that. The way results went today, It's a massive result for us."

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

It is time to start getting some reaction. First up is West Brom's Darren Fletcher, who has made a winning return to Old Trafford.

How they stand - top of the Premier League

So Manchester United may just be left fighting it out for fourth place with Liverpool and maybe Tottenham.

United had gone into this game looking to move second as they aim for a top-three finish to avoid the two-legged Champions League play-off that awaits the side that comes fourth in the Premier League.

So you don't need the ball to win then? Tony Pulis's side have only TWENTY % of the ball. And still win. Incredible scenes.

Mark Dunlop: Boaz Myhill 1. Squillions of £s 0. Embarrassed to be a United fan today. Last two performances disgraceful.

Jamie Matthews: What has happened to the team that dismantled Man City, not even a month ago? Rubbish from United, credit to West Brom.

Alex Haworth: Manchester United could play until the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight starts, they still wouldn't score. So predictable.

Tune in to a 5 live boxing special from 0430 BST on Sunday morning for coverage of the big fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

West Brom were certainly on the ropes for most of that match at Old Trafford, but may have landed a knockout blow to Manchester United's hopes of finishing in the top three.

Matt, Dorset: Why can't South Americans play for United? Forlan, Veron, Di Maria and Falcao - amazing everywhere else, shocking at Utd!

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

Steve Bower

BBC Match of the Day commentator at Old Trafford

"West Brom have won back-to-back victories at Old Trafford for, get this, the first time since 1959. Louis van Gaal's team aren't sitting comfortably in that top four just yet."

FULL-TIME

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

Incredible result. Tony Pulis rises to applaud the travelling fans, but how they should be applauding their club's boss. An absolute smash-and-grab from Albion, who scored in fortunate fashion with Chris Brunt's free-kick bouncing off an unaware Jonas Olsson.

But West Brom defended magnificently, with Boaz Myhill making two excellent stops late on, as well as a stunning save from Robin van Persie's penalty. How costly will that penalty miss be for United?

Mata with the cross. Chris Baird with an excellent clearing header.

Falcao shoots, blocked. It is attack versus defence. Can United find an equaliser?

GREAT SAVE!

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

Angel Di Maria is unlucky. Another piece of magic from Boaz Myhill who athletically tips over Di Maria's angled drive.

INJURY TIME

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

Four minutes for West Brom to hang on.

GREAT SAVE!

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

Robin van Persie denied. It is great technique from the Dutchman who takes a touch to set himself and then unleashes a great effort on the left foot from 25 yards out. The ball is creeping inside the post but Myhill gets down well to push it away.

SUBSTITUTION

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

Tony Pulis is never the calmest of managers. And there he is on the touchline bouncing up and down. Can he mastermind a memorable victory? Let's give credit to Pulis. His side have been disciplined, organised and have worked so hard to keep United out.

Andre Wisdom comes on for Craig Gardner to shut up shop. Well, even further.

Angel Di Maria

Di Maria looks woefully short of confidence. He is found on the left wing, with time to send in a delivery. But all he can do is send it straight into Boaz Myhill's hands. You expect more for just south of £60m. In fact, you would expect more if it was £1m.

SUBSTITUTION

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

West Brom are throwing themselves in front of the ball to earn this. And boy are they working hard. Chris Baird charges down a Wayne Rooney volley on the edge of the penalty area.

It is all out attack for United as Radamel Falcao comes on for Paddy McNair. That's Rooney, Van Persie, Di Maria, Falcao, Mata, Fellaini and Young all on the pitch at the same time. Attack, attack, attack.

Top of the table (as it stands)

So there may be hope for Liverpool fans after all. A banner calling for Brendan Rodgers to be sacked was flown over Anfield today. But they could still be in the top four.

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

United have 13 minutes left to save themselves. West Brom have made a change with Chris Baird coming on for Youssouf Mulumbu. It would be a great three points for West Brom if they can hold on.

Femi John Atoyebi: Why RVP instead of Rooney for the penalty?

Paul Collins: Wasn't even a penalty, was outside area. Justice done.

WHAT A MISS

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

You have to hit the target from there. A corner from the right wing finds an unmarked Paddy McNair at the back post, but, six yards out, he can only head wide of the goal. He has his head in his hands. And rightly so. He should have done better.

SAVED PENALTY - Robin van Persie (Man United)
