    Chris Waddle

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "Louis van Gaal will not admit it but he's lacking a proper number nine. There's no doubt about it. In the final third Manchester United have let themselves down.

    "The priority is a number nine and if he doesn't get one Man Utd will be struggling big time this season."    

    Wayne Rooney
  2. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    So, frustration for Manchester United as Steve McClaren makes a happy return to Old Trafford.

    Thanks for your company. I'll leave the last word to Chris Waddle...

  3. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Chris Waddle

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "An unbelievable end to the game. Manchester United were knocking on the door really hard, but give Newcastle credit. They defended well.

    "Steve McClaren was kicking every ball on the sidelines and he'll be delighted with a point."

  4. FULL-TIME

    Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Frantic finish. Newcastle were brave. Manchester United were frustrated.

    Memphis Depay
  5. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Another chance to Manchester United. This time Michael Carrick flashes a 25-yard effort just wide.

  6. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Chris Waddle

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "Incredible. Straight after Chris Smalling's header comes off the post Newcastle get into the 18-yard box for pretty much the first time. Florian Thauvin slides in but he just couldn't get his foot on it." 

  7. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Incredible scenes at both ends. 

    Manchester United win a corner and Chris Smalling heads against the post. The ball rebounds out and Newcastle break.

    Papiss Cisse fizzes the ball across the six-yard area but new signing Florian Thauvin at full stretch just fails to connect.

    Steve McClaren
  8. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    One minute of normal time remaining. The only noise at Old Trafford is coming from where Newcastle's fans are gathered.

    Brilliant defending by Fabricio Coloccini to get in the way of Antonio Valencia's goal-bound shot from close range.

    Newcastle have shown tremendous bravery at the back.

    Fabricio Coloccini
  11. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Chris Waddle

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "Great save by Tim Krul. Javier Hernandez was one-on-one with the Newcastle goalkeeper and he went early, but Krul got down there well to make the block. 

    "We haven't seen much going forward from Newcastle, but they've been defending very well. They look happy to sit back and wait for a counter."

  13. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Huge moment. Tim Krul has not had too much to do but the Newcastle keeper produces the save of the game to keep out Javier Hernandez's attempt after the Manchester United substitute got behind the visitors defence. 

  14. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Manchester United have found another gear. They are peppering the Newcastle goal in the closing stages and even Luke Shaw has had a go. Antonio Valencia comes on for Matteo Darmian.

  15. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Chance for Manchester United but Juan Mata blazes over moments after Wayne Rooney's goal-bound effort is blocked by Steven Taylor. Can the hosts find a late winner? 

    Memphis Depay
  16. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Chris Waddle

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "Florian Thauvin's a very cultured player, he's got a lovely left foot. He's got a trick, he's not quick but is great on the ball and can go past players. I hope we see the best of him in England. You want him in the attacking half of the field, rather than doing a full-back's job."  

  17. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Newcastle are going for this. New winger Florian Thauvin is on for Gabriel Obertan. What can the Toon's new £12m man do?

  18. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Wayne Rooney stays on as Adnan Januzaj makes way for Javier Hernandez. We're in the last quarter of the game. Newcastle are looking good for what would be their second point of the season.

    Steve McClaren
  19. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Chris Waddle

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "I wouldn't be surprised to see Wayne Rooney subbed, if Louis van Gaal wants to bring on Javier Hernandez, who's been warming up on the sidelines. 

    "Rooney has had a couple of shots, but Memphis Depay looks like he's got a goal in him and Adnan Januzaj doesn't look like tiring."

  20. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Tim Krul has had little to do this second half. Memphis Depay tries his luck from distance and earns a corner but it's cleared before a red shirt can get on the end of it. 

    Memphis Depay
  21. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Apparently Bastian Schweinsteiger was replaced because of a cut on his left ankle. Javier Hernandez is now warming up.

    John Pierce: Have Man United really moved on from last year? No side in the top eight will be worried about them. Anemic today.

    Josh Hammond: United starting the second half how they finished the first; slow. lethargic and with no urge to drive forwards.

    Loser92: Newcastle look like they'll nick this 1-0.

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "Bastian Schweinsteiger felt the pace today.He's been used as an impact player in his Manchester United career so far, and it looks like his legs have gone after playing an hour."   

    Bastian Schweinsteiger
  25. YELLOW CARD

    Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Huge roar as Gabriel Obertan is shown a yellow card for bringing down Memphis Depay 25 yards out. Disappointing free-kick. 

    Here comes Michael Carrick...Bastian Schweinsteiger makes way.

  26. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Michael Carrick is warming up...

  27. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Chris Waddle

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "It's finely balanced, this game. There's a very slow tempo to the start of this second half - not at all like the opening 45, It might be the substitutions that change the game in the end - but looking at the bench what options have Manchester United got in attack? Not a lot."

  28. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    It's not that long ago that Newcastle came away from Old Trafford with a win. Yohan Cabaye's goal two years ago saw them return to Tyneside with three points but they'll fancy their chances of a repeat. United again enjoying plenty of possession but can't open up the defence.

  31. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Steve McClaren has missed the first two minutes of the new half. He's walking back to his seat in the dugout clutching a bottle of water. He might be sipping something a little stronger if Newcastle snatch something here.

  32. KICK-OFF

    Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Manchester United have yet to score a Premier League goal in the second half this season. They need one here. We're back under way.

    Daley Blind
  33. Plenty of shots

    Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Manchester United have had six shots on target so far, the last time they did that in the first half of a Premier League game without scoring was against Bolton in September 2008.

  34. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    How's this for a stat?

    This is only the second game in 21 Premier League matches in 2015 for Wayne Rooney that he's had more than one shot on target.   

  35. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Chris Waddle

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "Newcastle have really come back into the game. They're hustling, and look dangerous on the counter. Whether that's down to Steve McClaren shouting so much on the sidelines, well, that will certainly have helped them."

    "They could have got a couple of goals in the first 15 minutes, when Newcastle were very poor, but the problem Manchester United have is that they want to score the perfect goal. Just shoot! At the minute they are trying to walk the ball into the net."  

  38. HALF-TIME

    Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Louis van Gaal, with leather folder in one hand, marches towards the dressing room with the look of a teacher about to scold a class of children.

    Manchester United dugout
  39. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Frustration from the home fans at another mis-placed pass. Then Memphis Depay is denied by an excellent challenge from Fabricio Coloccini on the edge of the Newcastle area.

  40. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Newcastle are the most dangerous side as the half comes to an end. Ayoze Perez goes close with a low first time attempt from outside the box. The referee gives a corner but keeper Sergio Romero did not get a touch.

  41. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    After a high tempo start, the half is spluttering to an end. The hosts have lost the zip and energy that left Newcastle under serious pressure for the opening 20 minutes. Louis van Gaal has a big team talk coming up.

    A decent start for full debutant Bastian Schweinsteiger for Manchester United. The midfielder has made the joint most amount of passes so far, and just two of them have been unsuccessful (shown by the red on the pass map below).

    Basti
  44. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Bastian Schweinsteiger is soldiering on for now. He doesn't look as though he is in as much discomfort as he was. The former Bayern Munich man has had a decent half so far as the graph in the next entry demonstrates. 

  45. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Chris Waddle

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "Newcastle had a terrible start but they've grown into the game since. For the first 15 minutes you thought this was going to be a good hiding. But now they're closing down well, pinching balls off Manchester United and are trying to break. 

    "Steve McClaren is kicking every ball on the sidelines. His side have hit the bar with a header, had a couple of corners... They need to keep this tempo up now." 

  46. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Manchester United made a blistering start but Newcastle have weathered the storm and are starting to ping the ball about a lot more convincingly.It could have something to do with Steve McClaren, who is back on the touchline after departing his seat in the directors box. 

    Steve McClaren
  47. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Scare for Manchester United. Bastian Schweinsteiger is limping. He looks in discomfort after a challenge with former Red Devil Gabriel Obertan.

    "Aleksandar Mitrovic just had to put his head on it - the pace of the cross made it a lot easier for him.

    Ayoze Perez brings down Matteo Darmian on the edge of the Newcastle area and it's a free-kick for the hosts.

    Memphis Depay is eyeing it up but it's Juan Matta who has a pop and it's a comfortable save by Tim Krul, Plenty of bend on the effort but it lacked pace.

  58. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Newcastle United manager Steve McClaren is watching the first half from the directors box. He won't be happy with what he has seen so far.

  61. Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle

    Wayne Rooney is clean through. Tim Krul comes rushing off the line and the Manchester United striker drills it into the net. United fans are out of their seats...but it's ruled out by an offside flag.

    Man Utd v Newcastle (12:45 BST)

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal  speaking to BT Sport about Michael Carrick dropping out of the side and Bastian Schweinsteiger coming in:

    "I have to build him up. When you want to play him more for than 45 minutes you have to start with him

    "Everybody is saying he is a world champion and he has won a lot of things but every player has to prove that. To do that for Manchester United is not so easy but I have great confidence in him. 

    "I want to spare Michael Carrick for other matches. Last year he was very much injured and I want to prevent that."

    And on questions surrounding Wayne Rooney’s goalscoring form:

    "I have said to Wayne you don’t have to score today. When we win I am satisfied."

  66. Countdown to kick-off
