They were excused after struggling to score against Omonia last midweek, given the excellent individual performance of Francis Uzoho between the posts. It was labelled as ‘just one of those days’ when things don’t go quite right. If you were to replay the match, then United might have won it by a four or five-goal margin. Instead, they relied on Scott McTominay’s late strike to secure three points.

Manchester United have added academy youngsters Radek Vitek, Tyler Fredricson, Kobbie Mainoo, Zidane Iqbal, Shola Shoretire and Charlie McNeill to their Europa League squad ahead of Thursday night’s match against Real Sociedad at Old Trafford. United confirmed their 25-man squad for their Europa League campaign on Monday, but the academy youngsters have been added to the squad through the competition’s B list, which allows unlimited players born after 2000 and who have been on a club’s books for two or three years to be included. Anthony Elanga was not named on Monday but also qualifies for the B list due to his age.
