[Video Goals] Man Utd 4-1 Fenerbahce: Pogba Scores Stunner As Utd Cruise
Man Utd moved a step closer to securing qualification to the knockout stages of the Europa League with a 4-0 victory over Fenerbahce at Old Trafford
Manchester United moved a huge step closer to securing qualification to the knockout stages of the Europa League thanks to a 4-0 victory over Fenerbahce at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
United opened the scoring in the 31st minute when Juan Mata was fouled in the area. Paul Pogba stepped up and lashed the ball home from the spot to give the hosts the lead.
It was 2-0 just two minutes later as Anthony Martial was hauled down in the box and the Frenchman dusted himself off to score the resulting penalty to make it 2-0 after 34 minutes.
United then scored a superb team goal as Wayne Rooney found Jesse Lingard before the England attacker laid it off to Pogba who fired home a stunning strike in to the top corner for 3-0 in first half stoppage time.
The goals kept coming and it was another lovely goal as Pogba and Rooney combined again before Lingard riffled home a powerful low drive in to the bottom corner shortly after the break for 4-0.
Fenerbahce did pull one back late on and it was former United striker Robin van Persie who got it as the Dutchman tapped home from close range for 4-1 but it was the hosts who took the three points to move then level on points with Feyenoord at the top of Group A.
