Manchester United and West Bromwich Albion are level as the teams go into half time at Old Trafford.

Manchester United and West Bromwich Albion are level at half time in their Premier League encounter.

United passed well in the opening exchanges and created their first chance when Nani zipped a ball across to Wayne Rooney, who was inches away from putting his side into the lead.

Nani continued to torment the Albion defence and whipped in another great ball minutes later that just evaded Javier Hernandez, who decided not to gamble.

However, a great chance fell to the visitors as Saido Berahino headed wide after an inviting ball was put into the box.

Rooney then got in behind the Albion defence to meet a cross with a header, but the United striker could only direct his effort over the bar.

The best chance of the half came late on as Anderson produced an athletic diving header that came back off the bar, before Shinji Kagawa later showed good feet to beat two defenders but failed to apply the finish.
