It's been an eventful first-half at Old Trafford this afternoon.

Manchester United squandered an early lead, courtesy of Marcos Rojo, when Phil Jones fouled Marc Pugh and conceded a penalty. Former United player Josh King stepped up to convert.

As well as goals, there was also their fair share of talking points in the half.

Tyrone Mings was the first to incur the wrath of social media after he appeared to stamp on the head of Zlatan Ibrahimovic - with some claiming it was intentional.

The Swede was clearly unimpressed with the challenge and shortly after this, he decided to get one back on Mings. A cross was hung up at the back post and as the Mings and Ibrahimovic decided to contest the ball, the 35-year-old landed an elbow into the face of Mings.

Neither player received a booking for the incidents, but there was one red card in the first half.

Andrew Surman was dismissed for picking up two yellow cards.
