Premier League side Manchester United edged Cypriot outfit Omonia Nicosia 1-0, in their UEFA Europa League group stage encounter at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
For all the dominance by the home side, it was Neil Lennon’s men especially second choice goalkeeper Francis Uzoho whose numerous impressive saves (eleven in total) that threatened to deny the Red Devils from finding the breakthrough before Scott McTominay delivered the goods in injury time to gift Erik ten Hag’s squad all three points.
The result means United now have nine points from their four group stage matches, and only need a draw on Matchday V to book their place in the knockout rounds of the competition.
