United were on the front foot early on, but Jakupovic gave a glimpse of what was to come when he got down low to deny Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the quarter-hour mark.

The Tiger's sat back and looked for counter-attacking opportunities, limiting the amount of chances created by both sides in the first half.

However, Paul Pogba blew a great chance on the stroke of half time, after being played through one-on-one with the Hull stopper, with the Switzerland international again coming out on top.

After the break, Marcus Rashford somehow poked a shot from inside the six-yard box wide, before Ibrahimovic blazed another chance inches wide.

Juan Mata was the next to try his luck, after making a space for a shot with a bit of skill, but was also thwarted by Jakupovic.

United pushed hard for a goal late on and the Hull keeper earned a standing ovation when he denied a Marcos Rojo header deep into injury time to secure his side a point.
