FULL-TIME. A home win for the already-eliminated Astana, but lots to like for United fans with so many young players stepping into the first team for the first time. And good to see Lingard back on the score-sheet too. Ultimately, the result means nothing for either side - but it's one that will go down in the record books on both sides. Thank you for your company this evening.
