WEST BROM 5, MANCHESTER UNITED 5
Sir Alex Ferguson’s 1500th and final Premier League match ended in the first 5-5 draw in the history of the Premier League as West Brom came back from 5-2 down with eight minutes to go to snatch a late draw.
There was to be no winning goal during the four minutes of added Fergie-time as Manchester United were denied by Romelu Lukaku’s hat trick goal in the 86th minute.
Another departing United legend, Paul Scholes, earned his 97th career Premier League yellow card on his final appearance for a makeshift United side without Patrice Evra, Rio Ferdinand, who recently earned a new one-year contract, Wayne Rooney and captain Nemanja Vidic.
Despite a much-changed defence, United raced into a 3-0 lead after half an hour through goals by Shinji Kagawa, a Jonas Olsson own goal and Alexander Buttner.
James Morrison pulled one back prior to half time before West Brom sub Lukaku made it 3-2 five minutes after the break.
United looked to have strolled to victory after a pair of goals by Robin van Persie and Javier Hernandez put United 5-2 ahead with 27 minutes to go.
Daydreaming United were hit by a late Lukaku brace and a Youssouf Mulumbu goal to deny Ferguson a winning end to his United career.
