Blog: Sir Alex's final game

17:43 Going against the script, Lukaku has scored his second goal of the game to prompt a more competitive climax than expected. Game on at The Hawthorns... West Brom 3 United 5. (MF)

17:42 It’s worth noting that today has felt like a celebration of Sir Alex’s career as opposed to the emotional atmosphere that engulfed Old Trafford last weekend. This afternoon’s game feels more like an opportunity to get back to basics; winning football matches under the greatest manager that ever lived. (MF)

17:33 Speaking of retiring players, the United fans are currently chanting the name of former Old Trafford hero David Beckham, who is also set to bow out of the game at the end of this season. (MF)

17:30 The moment we've all been waiting for has arrived; Scholes' arrival to the action. The retiring legend takes the place of Kagawa and immediately gets himself involved, sliding in to reclaim possession with a surprisingly accurate challenge. (MF) 

17:25: Get in there! Chicharito has put the ball in the back of the net again, latching onto Giggs' fine cross to neatly flick the ball past Foster. United have been extremely clinical going forward, but it must be said that West Brom's defending has been absolutely woeful at times. But hey, what do we care? West Brom 2 United 5. (MF)
