It was a slow start for the home side but as the game went on Manchester United became superior in the game. Solskjær’s boys had to wait until 24 minutes for the first goal.

Marcus Rashford provided a pinpoint cross from the right for Edinson Cavani and he made no mistake to convert it from the handshaking distance.

United managed to extend the lead before the end of the first half, from outside the box Bruno Fernandes’ shot went straight into the back of the net. He continues to show his quality in the Old Trafford outfit.
