Europa League: Manchester United 1-0 Zorya (RESULT)


Europa League: Manchester United 1-0 Zorya (RESULT)


Manchester United climbed off the bottom of their Europa League group with an uninspiring win over Ukrainian minnows Zorya Luhansk.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the second-half winner with his first goal in five matches, nodding in substitute Wayne Rooney’s mis-hit shot at the far post.

It was United’s first effort on target, despite dominating at Old Trafford.

Zorya offered little threat, although Sergio Romero had to be alert to save Paulinho’s shot just before the winner.



The Red Devils are among the favourites to win Europe’s secondary club competition, but started the evening at the bottom of Group A following a 1-0 defeat at Dutch side Feyenoord in their opening match.

And for more than an hour it looked as though Jose Mourinho’s men would stay there.

Despite hogging over 70% of possession, United were slow and ponderous in the final third as Zorya’s well-drilled defence held firm.

But Zorya, making their debut in the Europa League group stage, were undone inside two minutes of Rooney’s introduction.

United move up to third, level on three points with Feyenoord and one adrift of Turkish leaders Fenerbahce.
