Man United edge past Zorya
It wasn’t the most convincing performance from Manchester United tonight.
They just about edged past Zorya 1-0 in the Europa League, thanks to a Zlatan Ibrahimovic goal.
The Swedish striker managed to head the ball home in the 69th minute after a deflected Wayne Rooney shot fell into his path.
Other than the goal, Manchester United had very little in terms of chances in the game and manager Jose Mourinho admitted after the match that his side found it difficult tonight.
“It was difficult”
The Manchester United manager admitted that his side struggled against Zorya but said it was important to win.
He said that Zorya kept their shape well and were difficult to break down due to the men they had behind the ball.
Mourinho then went on to say that he is not over the moon that Manchester United have won their last 3 games, just like he wasn’t depressed when they lost 3 on the bounce.
He also added that since coming on, Rooney and Martial offered Manchester United something different in the game.
