  • End of 2nd Half

FULL-TIME! United record a comprehensive victory over Feyenoord and leapfrog their Dutch opponents into second place in Group A.

Strikes from Rooney, Mata, Lingard and an own goal from Jones secured the points.

  • Jesse Lingard

Three minutes of added time to be played at the end of this one.


Mkhitaryan looks on from the touchline with a rather blank expression. Inside, he must be delighted with his performance this evening.


Lingard is determined to get on the score-sheet as he forces TWO fine saves from Jones! The first one he struck from the edge of the area and moments later he fired a deflected shot straight at the goalkeeper.


The hosts are in complete control as we move closer to full-time. They're dominating possession and waiting patiently for a space to open in the Feyenoord defence.


United continue to attack as Rashford delivers a cross into the penalty area but Jones is on hand to collect.

Unfortunately, Ibrahimovic won't be able to claim that goal, no matter how desperately he needs one!

Their team is losing and simply being outplayed, but the Feyenoord fans are still singing loud and proud. As it stands, they have their work cut out to progress to the latter stages of the Europa League and it'd be a shame to lose such a good club at this early round.

Berghuis steps up... and smashes it straight into the wall.


Pogba gives the ball away in a midfield area before hauling down Vilhena. Feyenoord have a free-kick now from a central area, 25 yards out...


A reminder, as it stands, United will move second with one game in Group A remaining.


United have yet to make a change but have plenty of talent on the bench, including Marcus Rashford, Memphis Depay and Jesse Lingard.

SIDE-NETTING! Mkhitaryan picks the ball up in a central position, plays a one-two with Ibrahimovic before firing the ball at the side-netting. The Armenian is on fire at the moment.


OVER! Goal-scorer Rooney nearly turns provider as he picks out Mkhitaryan between two defenders but the forward can't keep his first-time effort down. Again, wouldn't have counted as the linesman had his flag raised.


United stick the ball in the net for the second time... but Mata is clearly offside.


CHANCE! The ball falls kindly to Vilhena but the forward screws a half-volley slightly wide of goal from just inside the area. That was an opportunity for the visitors who have improved in recent minutes.


PENALTY SHOUT! Kuyt runs into Pogba inside the area and immediately appeals for a spot-kick but again the referee isn't interested. It would have been soft.


CLOSE! Mata almost catches Jones out with a spectacular lob from the edge of the area but the Australian just about gets a fingertip to the ball.


Wonderful skill from Mkhitaryan as he glides past two defenders before being brought down by Toornstra just as he looks set to break through on goal. The referee dubiously waves play on!


Desperate defending from the visitors! First, Ibrahimovic sees his low volley blocked inside the area, the rebound falls to Mkhitaryan whose shot also takes a deflection. Feyenoord eventually clear.


Terrific play from Pogba as he wins the ball in midfield before playing a chipped pass towards Rooney. Thankfully, for Feyenoord, Jones is off his line quickly to collect the ball.


United have improved in recent weeks but haven't recorded the results their performances warranted. Jose Mourinho will be hoping tonight is different and an early goal would certainly settle any nerves.

  • 2nd Half

We're underway in the second-half with neither side making any changes at the break.

  • End of 1st Half

HALF-TIME! United lead 1-0 at the break with Rooney's goal separating the sides. It's no more than the home side deserve and they'll hope to put the game to bed early in the second period.


One minute of added time to play.


Rooney is played through again after being picked out in space by Mata but the captain had made his run a fraction too early.


No way through for Feyenoord as Valencia wins the ball back for the hosts from full-back.


As it stands, United will leapfrog Feyenoord into second place in Group A. A long way to go, but Mourinho will certainly be impressed with his side thus far.


United are looking pretty comfortable at the moment with five minutes to play until half-time.


It's a deserved goal for United, they have been much the better side. It was brilliant link-up play from United's two front men to carve open the visitors.

  • Wayne Rooney

Brave goalkeeping from Jones as he punches a cross from Rooney away from goal.


CHANCE! A lovely chipped pass from Ibrahimovic releases Mkhitaryan in the area but the forward can't find a way past Jones. Wouldn't have counted anyway as the linesman had his flag raised.


The visitors have taken the sting out of the match in the last few minutes and their pressing is causing United problems, forcing the hosts to concede possession.


Are United playing Feyenoord or Liverpool? The away supporters are currently singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone'. Deja-vu for Kuyt and Jones.


DOUBLE SAVE! Romero to the rescue as Feyenoord give United an almighty scare. The visitors launch a counter-attack, good work from Elia finds Jorgensen in the middle but the forward's shot is parried and the rebound falls to Kuyt whose low effort is saved by the feet of the United goalkeeper!


Now Mata finds space on the channel but his cross to the back post doesn't pick out any team mates.


Mata is caught in an offside position after receiving a long pass from Pogba who is completely dictating play at the moment.


Mourinho will certainly be the happier of the two managers thus far. He must be particularly impressed by Mkhitaryan who may as well be making his debut for United.


CLOSE! United beginning to up the ante now and almost open the scoring as Ibrahimovic plays a pass across the face of goal but it's just ahead of Mkhitaryan.


CHANCE! The subsequent corner is played to Carrick on the edge of the penalty area and the midfielder strikes it hard and low, forcing Jones into another save.


SAVE! Finally, Jones is forced into action as Pogba opts to shoot from all of 20 yards, drawing a rather awkward save from the goalkeeper who can only parry the ball over the bar. Corner to follow.


Pogba goes down on the channel after a heavy challenge from Karsdorp but the referee isn't interested despite the France international's appeals for a free-kick.


The opening 15 minutes have been rather boring, if I'm honest. United are seeing plenty of the ball but haven't created a clear-cut opportunity. Feyenoord appear happy to sit back in an attempt to frustrate the hosts.


Otherwise, Pogba has made a positive start to the match and has been at the heart of every United attack thus far. Mkhitaryan has also been lively.


Pogba is robbed of possession in deep territory but the linesman saves United as the Feyenoord attack collapses.


Mkhitaryan and Rooney exchange a number of passes before the latter plays too much on a through ball, allowing Jones, another former Liverpool player, to collect.


A familiar face for Liverpool fans, Kuyt, now gives the ball away with a sloppy pass in midfield. He is getting plenty of attention from the home supporters every time he touches the ball.


A badly mis-placed pass from Mata aimed for Pogba draws cheers from the visiting supporters who are making all of the noise in the opening stages.


Carrick is proving effective in the middle of the park as he wins the ball back for United who launch another attack. The ball is played to Pogba who tries a pop at goal but he's off balance and the shot is sent high into the stands.


OVER! Bright start from United. Valencia whips a cross into the penalty area, finding the head of Pogba but the French star can't find the target. It was a chance.

  • 1st Half

KICK-OFF! United get us underway at a lively Old Trafford.


Southampton have been defeated by Sparta Prague meaning the Saints need at least a draw in their final Group K game to seal a place in the latter stages of the competition.


FIVE MINUTES UNTIL KICK-OFF! Remember, United must not lose tonight or they will crash out of the Europa League. Surely they'll avoid defeat?

Who knows. This has been a bizarre year...


Their last defeat at home in a European competition proved to be in Sir Alex Ferguson's final season...


United endured a frustration afternoon when they were pegged back late at home to Arsenal on Sunday. But tonight his side have a chance to put their recent form behind them and give the players a much needed confidence boost for their Premier League clash with the Hammers at the weekend.

“Feyenoord is a game that has become knockout because we need four points to qualify, which is one victory and one draw – this means we will pay for a defeat,” Mourinho told MUTV.

“I want to give the team the best chance to win the match, so I select a strong team. We want to secure qualification to the knockout stages in 2017, but obviously I will need to rest players in order to keep them fresh for the next two matches against West Ham.

Jose Mourinho and Manchester United endured a frustrating afternoon against Arsenal

"It was not a good game for us against Feyenoord [in September], but now we’re playing at home, we want to win – we have to win." – Matteo Darmian, speaking to MUTV.

It's not the Champions League, but there's certainly a big-game feel about tonight's match at Old Trafford. United's form has been poor and Jose Mourinho will need his players to be at their best to overcome a Feyenoord side that has won 11 of their first 12 games this season – one of which was against the Red Devils.


CRUNCH TIME: United sit third in Group A, having been beaten by tonight's opponents already as well as Fenerbahce.

A victory would send the Red Devils about second-placed Feyenoord but on the other hand, a defeat would send them out of the competition.


Henrikh Mkhitaryan STARTS! The midfielder has made only one appearance since his full debut against Manchester City in September.

Meanwhile, Wayne Rooney also features from the start, playing behind striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Luke Shaw plays his first match for the first time in a fortnight.
