The young English forward started on the left flank for Man United, but was later moved to the right wing after the introduction of Anthony Martial in the second half.

Marcus Rashford hit the crossbar with a vicious free kick from a tight angle in the 86th minute but the home side were jeered off the pitch on the final whistle after another lacklustre performance.

Jose Mourinho has recalled Alexis Sanchez to the starting eleven after the Chilean global was axed for the defeat at West Ham on Saturday.

Jose Mourinho is someone who purports to be all about the small details so what sort of message did that send ahead of another game United had to win?

"I'm actually slightly surprised he survived after Saturday, the performance was so bad", he told BT Sport. "I hope he now gets a run of games in the team".

United, already eliminated from the Carabao Cup by Championship outfit Derby last Tuesday before losing 3-1 at West Ham on Saturday, can at least point to an unbeaten record in Group H following this stalemate.

However, it took far longer for the game to come alive after a drab first half that summed up both sides' struggles so far this season.

The 20-year-old is in decent form and looks far more threatening than Lukaku or Sanchez. Against Valencia, he was one of United's most impressive players, though in fairness, there wasn't much competition.
