 Man Utd 2-0 Hull City. Red Devil catch 9-match winning streak, Juan Mata goals header and Fellaini scores.

9’Harry Maguire picks the ball up 20 yards in his own half, takes it past three players but is forced out wide, and his weak shot ends up in the hands of De Gea.

14’ Henriksen takes out Pogba, and asks for the physio to come on to treat him, t looks like a shoulder injury, Hernandez come off the bench.

19’ Big chance for United. Darnian slips in Mata, who turns superbly and pulls it back for Mkhitaryan, and he should be scoring from there.

23’ Mkhitaryan doesn’t shoot well. He lets the ball go across his body, just outside the area from Mata’s ball, but his left-footed effort is well high and wide when he really should be hitting the target.

27’ Darmian’s ball is cleared as far as Valencia on the right of the area. The Ecuadorian takes it first time, but blazes it well over Jakupovic’s bear.

53’ CLOSE! Rooney inches from the record! It’s an unbelievable ball from Pogba, who zips it 40 yards into the path of Rooney.He takes a touch, Old Trafford flashes back a few years and it looks like the old Rooney, but the England man flashes it wide on the half-volley from the right angle! Inches away…

56’ Goal! Pogba spreads it to Valencia on the right, he then finds Mkhitaryan at the far post, and the Armenian somehow gets up above Meyler to head it towards goal.

It’s not heading in, but Mata is there, coming back from an offside position to an onside position, to nod it in at the far post!

75′ OFF THE POST! Free-kick to United, with Pogba steps up, and cracks the side of the post from 25 yards.

87′ GOAL! MAN UTD 2-0 HULL. Vital second for United here, and it’s the sub Fellaini! Martial is on the floor on the left, feeds Darmian, and his deep cross to the far post finds Fellaini. The Belgian completely bullies Robertson, loops a header over Jakupovic, and Huddlestone can’t prevent it from going in the net!
