Europa League: Mkhitaryan & Ibrahimovic score to seal qualification for Manchester United

Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s first goal for Manchester United helped Jose Mourinho’s men seal a win over Zorya Luhansk and ensured their progress to the Europa League last-32.

The two teams played out an underwhelming opening period at the Chornomorets Stadium with the best chance of the half falling to Wayne Rooney, who saw his long-range effort saved well by Igor Levchenko.

But three minutes into the second half and United had the lead their performance deserved after summer signing Mkhitaryan drifted past a few players with ease to slot home and score first goal for the club.

And Zlatan Ibrahimovic made sure of the three points with a simple finish as the full-time whistle approached, the Swede running clear at goal before scoring past the helpless Levchenko.
