70 mins: Disallowed goal! City get up the pitch and Gundogan recovers the ball. He slips it over to Grealish on the left who just flicks it back to him after getting level with the penalty area.

A block deflects the ball back to Grealish who sets up Haaland to shoot. The striker fizzes one at De Gea who keeps it out only for Gundogan to turn in the rebound.

He’s offside though and the goal is chalked off.

47 mins: That’s nice from Sancho. Bruno Fernandes drifts out to the right side and gives the ball to Sancho who turns into the box. He weaves past a couple of defenders but wants to get the ball onto his left foot to shoot as the angle is better.

As he moves to the edge of the six-yard area, he’s finally stopped and City clear their lines.

Second half: The players are back out on the pitch with Manchester United getting the match back underway. Jadon Sancho gives the ball to Victor Lindelof who pumps it long.

Unlike the first half, there’s not going to be a goal straight from kick off as the ball is nodded out for a throw in.
