Seven minutes into the second half, United went close to pulling ahead when Marouane Fellaini glanced a header just wide of the upright.

De Gea came to United's rescue in the 81st minute as Pogba carelessly gave the ball away, which allowed Hojber to unleash a stinging effort that tipped over the bar.

Both sides pushed for a winning goal in the closing stages, but they were unable to carve out chances as the spoils were shared on the night.
