Two starlets earned starting spots in Man Utd’s Europa League XI. Are

2019/2020 UEFA Europa League

0 – 1 Martial (43′ PEN)

CLOSE! McTominay’s header wide out

United with a free-kick of their own now – Mata and Garner standing over it. It’s Mata to take towards McTominay at the far post, but he heads it into the ground and wide!

CLOSE! Lingard hits the post

United come close to taking the lead as Wan-Bissaka feeds Lingard after a scrap for the ball outside the Partizan box, but Lingard’s shot cracks the woodwork! 

POST! Sadiq hits the woodwork

It’s Partizan this time threatening United, as top scorer Sadiq hits the post! What a brilliant attempt that was completely out of nowhere! 

PENALTY GOAL! Partizan 0-1 Man Utd (Martial)

PENALTY! Out of nowhere, United have a spot kick! Williams makes a surging run into the box and Miletic flies in to bring him down. It’s an awful challenge and there can be no complaints.

MARTIAL SCORES! He’d been a complete passenger up until this point, but keeps his cool from the spot and tucks his penalty away into the bottom-left corner to net his third goal of the season.

SAVE! Romero parries Soumah shot

Soumah charges towards goal, tricks Maguire with some smart footwork – sending the £80million centre-back to the ground – and unleashes, but it’s too close to Romero in the middle of the goal and he saves! 

No penalty? Williams handball overlooked by ref

Partizan appeal for a penalty – Miletic’s header from a corner hitting Williams on the hand! No VAR in the Europa League until the final, so no chance to review it.

CHANCE! Sadiq’s long shot inches wide

Partizan maintain possession and work the ball up to Soumah in a good position. He lays the ball off neatly to Sadiq for a shot, but it’s narrowly wide.

SAVE! Romero denies Asano’s header

Natcho whips a corner into the six-yard box and Asano uses the pace of the ball to just redirect it goalwards from the near post, but Romero saves instinctively and palms it away from danger!
