Full-time: Zorya Luhansk 0-2 Manchester United

United qualify for the last 32 stage as group runners up.

19:51

Now Fosu-Mensah tries to get in on the act, coming in from the right and playing a neat one-two with Ibrahimovic before shooting for the near corner, but it's blocked by the goalkeeper.

19:50

Zlatan seals it! Pogba receives a ball just inside his own half and spins to play a superb through pass on a plate for Ibrahimovic, who has kept onside. From there on, it's simple for him, breaking into the box before slotting coolly into the corner.

19:48

Goal! Zorya 0-2 Manchester United (Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 87)

19:43

Ibrahimovic almost seals it, taking the ball down onhis chest before lashing a vicious half volley towards goal, but it sails just over the cross bar. That is his first real effort of the season.

19:35

United are under pressure for the first time and are almost made to pay as Sivakov gets a free header on goal, but Romero reacts brilliantly to push it away

19:33

Notorious fan favourite Marouane Fellaini comes onto replace Rooney. There was a moment of panic a moment ago after Emmanuel Bonaventure clashed with Bailly in the air, leaving the United centre-half in a heap. After getting some treatment, he seems okay to continue, however.

19:26

And here is United's first change of the evening, Jesse Lingard comes onto replace Mata.

19:19

Ibrahimovic breaks into space in the box and tests Levchenko, but the goalkeeper does well to deal with his stinging effort.

19:15

Here's the first change of the game and it is made by Zorya, with Bezborodko off, and Bonaventure coming on.

19:12

Brilliant from Mkhitaryan! The Armenian has his first goal for the club. Rojo does well to press high up the pitch and the former Dortmund picks up possession, racing from the centre circle past three challenges before nudging it through the Sivakov's legs. With the goal opening up in front of him, he coolly slots past the goalkeeper, capping a superb solo effort.

Zorya 0-1 Manchester United (Henrikh Mkhitaryan, 46)

19:06

And we are back underway for the second half. Some goals, please.

18:50

Half-time: Zorya Luhansk 0-0 Manchester United

18:49

Blind's ball in is terrific and falls to Rojo, who lashes a half volley just over the bar. That will be that for the first half.

18:49

That was better from Rooney. Pogba lays the ball off the for the skipper who cuts inside with it and lets fly from almost 30 yards out, but a deflection carries it out for a corner.

18:47

United's passing has been very sloppy in the last few minutes, with the pretty horrendous playing surface contributing to that. As they get the ball back, Rooney has a pop at goal from the edge of the box but it trickles through for an easy save.

18:41

A corner comes into the box and causes a bit of trouble for the Zorya defence. It falls to Bailly who pulls off a decent overhead kick, but it's comfortably saved in the end.

18:39

United lose possession and Chaykovsky races forward, skipping past a couple of challenges before his shot on goal breaks wide to Karavayev. He has a go on goal himself but his effort isn't beating Romero.

18:38

Pogba's having an bit of an off evening so far. A minute ago he let fly with another effort from range that sailed well wide and now his attempted cross field ball has flown straight out of play.

18:34

There is a break in play after a firework is thrown from the stands into the United box, just a few meters away from Romero. The Argentine is unhurt but clearly isn't happy.

18:27

Fenerbache have taken the lead at Feyenoord. That means as it stands, United could even afford to lose this game and would still progress.

18:21

Herrera now whips in a decent cross for Pogba but he can't keep his header down.

18:21

Mkhitaryan hooks a ball out wide to Young to stretch the Zorya backline before moving it inside to Pogba. The Frenchman takes aim from 25 yards out and lashes a decent effort just wide of the post.
