ZORYA 0-2 MANCHESTER UNITED : Mkhitaryan And Zlatan On Target

Manchester United today qualified second in the Europa League Group A courtesy of Mkhitaryan's first goal for United and Zlatan Ibrahimovic's exceptional finish.

Manchester United had struggled to get their play in the first half and Mkhitaryan's solo effort was some brilliant move for the Mohrinho side. Netting his first goal in 11 appearances and also the first for United since  he signed in.

Manchester United dominated the game, owning 76% of the possession in the first half but were unable to create chances.

The long run solo run from Mkhitaryan was needed for moral boost because after all the play in first half, United's lack of opportunities will in any team reduce their confidence, trust and patience. His goal was followed by Zlatan's late goal.

Manchester United  now qualified into the knock out round of thirty two alongside Fenerbahce at the top. The notable feature of the United team was the omitted names on the bench which include Valencia, David De Gea, Anthony Martial due to their tough fixture in the weekend then the other guys Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay whom he actually left for no reason.

Mkhitaryan Spoke concerning his goals
"It can be [a weight off the shoulders] because I was waiting a long time for this goal and hoping that I score," he told BT Sport .

"But my next goal has to be at Old Trafford because I want to score at home. It is another pleasure to score at Old Trafford and I'll try do my best to do that."

Mkhitaryan concedes United were under-par in the first half in Ukraine, but was impressed by how they rectified things after the break and hailed team-mate Wayne Rooney's impact.
The Armenia international added: "The second half was better than the first where we played not so good. We couldn't find the right space or the last pass and [lacked] understanding with each other.

"But in the second half it was the opposite, we played very well, tried to improve ourselves and made the result. We created space for the wingers and the strikers.

"Wayne Rooney created space for me and I've scored the goal, then also the goal of Ibra – we had a lot of space up front. The most important thing is we won and we are going through."
