Question nobody asked - who was the last opponent to score at old trafford in the first half?

Manchester United's home record is the reason why Alex Ferguson's team are on the cusp of a 19th league title and, having dropped just two points from their 18 games at Old Trafford, they are eight points better off than their nearest opponents (Chelsea) in the home league table.
Chelsea were the last team to beat them at Old Trafford when they went there on April 3 last year and won 2-1. However, that is also the last game in which United conceded a goal during the first half of a Premier League game at Old Trafford when Joe Cole put Chelsea in front.
Their unbeaten home record in the league now stands at 20 games and, with Blackpool to come, that seems unlikely to end this season. That means they haven't conceded a first-half goal in over 900 minutes of first-half action at Old Trafford.
