...

The game, as a whole, was dull but Manchester United will not care. They have progressed to the knockouts. FC Zorya will take heart from the display as despite ending up on the losing side they had plenty of positives. They held their own in the game and even threatened to score on a few occasions.

...

Henrikh Mkhitaryan opened the scoring for Mourinho's side, netting his first goal since his move to Old Trafford from Signal Iduna Park in the summer. Zlatan then pounced on a crafty through ball from Pogba and sealed the game for his side.

...

PEEP PEEP PEEP!!! Manchester United win the game and ensure progression to the knockout stage of the competition.
FULL-TIME: FC Zorya 0-2 Manchester United

...

90+3' Eric Bailly is a lucky man to stay on the pitch as he kicks out at a Zorya player after a foul on him.

...

Meanwhile, Fenerbahce have won their game against Feyenoord and Manchester United can only come second in the group.

...

There will be three minutes of added time.

...

90+1' Zlatan finds Fosu-Mensah with an excellent through ball and the youngster fires a shot towards goal which the keeper does well to save. The Red Devils have another corner.

...

It is the biggest ever defeat in the short European career of Zorya but they will be proud to come up against some of Europe's biggest teams. Although there will be some disappointment for returning without a win from the group stage.

...

89' YELLOW CARD: Eric Bailly is booked for a foul on Bonaventure.

...

It is game over. Lingard finds the ball and passes it to Pogba who plays an excellent through ball to Zlatan who raced clear and had only the keeper to beat. The mercurial striker didn't make any mistake and buried his shot past the onrushing keeper. 

...

88' GOAAAAAAAAALLLLL!!! ZLATAN SCORES!

...

85' SUBSTITUTION: Timothy Fosu-Mensah comes on to replace the goalscorer Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

...

83' YELLOW CARD: First booking of the night and it is Ander Herrera who goes into the referee's books for a cynical foul on Bonaventure.

...

82' Zlatan tries to find the back of the net from outside of the box but his venomous shot sails over with the keeper scrambling.

...

81' Pogba tries to muscle his way down the right flank, keeping two Zorya players at bay but he fails to threaten the home side as the ball goes out for a goal-kick.

...

79' Manchester United win another corner after Lingard's shot is blocked. Pogba clatters into the goalkeeper while challenging for the ball from the resulting set-piece.

...

77' Zorya are trying their best to come back in the game but have so far been unsuccessful.

...

Just a reminder: There have been no bookings so far in the game.

...

75' Manchester United win a free-kick after Pogba is impeded. Mkhitaryan swings the free-kick towards Fellaini but he fails to direct his header goalwards.

...

74' Zorya win their first corner of the game but Manchester United are able to clear after a brief scare.

...

73' Chance! Zorya comes close to scoring the equaliser as Romero is forced to make a good save to keep his side ahead. The hosts had won a free-kick and it was diverted towards the goal but Romero was at hand to save it.

...

72' SUBSTITUTION: Liparta comes on to replace Ljubenović
Zorya makes their final change of the night.

...

71' Bailly is still struggling to shake off the injury but makes his way back onto the pitch. Phil Jones was prepared to come on but he was not required to.

...

70' SUBSTITUTION: Marouane Fellaini replaces Wayne Rooney

...

69' It is Bonaventure again who wins an aerial challenge against Bailly before letting go from distance. But his shot is a tame one and sails harmlessly wide. Bailly is down and looks to be in some pain. If he is injured it will be a huge blow for Manchester United with the defender only just returning to fitness.

...

67' Bonaventure has been lively since coming on is found by his teammate at the edge of the box and he tries to blast through into the box but is stopped by Manchester United.

...

65' SUBSTITUTION Jesse Lingard comes on to replace Juan Mata.
Manchester United make their first change of the game and Mata is clearly not happy with the decision as he makes his way down the tunnel, instead of towards the bench.

...

64' Zorya are threatening the away side from the wings. They have broken clear on a few occasions and it is Petriak who tries to create problems for them down the left flank but is blocked.

...

63' Zlatan tries to break into the Zorya box but he is blocked and united have a throw in.

...

60' Bonaventure tries to make things happen as he cuts in from the right and leaves Bailly for dead but his touch is heavy and United clear.

...

Mkhitaryan's goal was his first in Manchester United colors in his 11th appearance but what a way to get it!!

...

Manchester United have never won the UEFA Cup or the UEFA Europa League, can they manage it under Mourinho?

...

58' Zlatan finds the ball just inside the box and unleashes a powerful shot towards the Zorya goal. Levchenko is equal to it and holds on.

...

57' Zorya make their second substitution of the game.
SUBSTITUTION: Grechyshkin comes on in place of Kharatin who was lively in the first half on the left flank.

...

54' Zorya with the first change of the game.
SUBSTITUTION: Emmanuel Bonaventure comes on to replace Bezborodko

...

51' It is Mkhitaryan again who tries to find Zlatan at the far post but his cross is wayward and is of no harm.

...

Manchester United have the lead now but Fenerbahce are still winning. At this moment but the teams qualify but the Red Devils need the Turkish side to drop points if they are to top the group.

...

Mkhitaryan wins the ball in midfield and goes on a run before cutting in and nutmegging a Zorya player as he is clear through on goal and has only the keeper to beat. He slots it towards the right of Levchenko who fails to save it. A good goal from the under-fire midfielder.
