Manchester United needed a win as they hosted a largely unknown Ukrainian outfit Zorya Luhansk at Old Trafford on Thursday night. The Red Devils controlled the entire game and came close to opening the scoring as Marcus Rashford hit a spearing drive that shattered the underneath of the crossbar without going in.

Wayne Rooney was brought on near the hour mark and he had an instant impact as his misfired shot fell into the path of Zlatan Ibrahimovic who headed it home to give United a crucial three points to kick-start their Europa League campaign.

Twitter hailed the Swede veteran who was adjudged the man of the match.

The Twitter-verse, though, had mixed reactions about Rooney’s performance as he was credited with the assist which, in all fairness, was a horribly mishit volley attempt by the United captain.

Fans credited Timothy Fosu-Mensah who had a great outing against Zorya while lamenting the fact that Fellaini was given the start instead of Carrick.

Overall, Manchester United did just enough to secure the three points but it would take a much better performance from them in the future, given their dreaded October schedule.
