Tahith Chong gave an assist as Manchester United hammered LASK Linz 5-0 in the first leg of their Europa League clash.

The Dutch winger signed a new contract at the Premier League giants this week and took his place on the bench in Austria.

LASK Linz had beaten both PSV Eindhoven and AZ Alkmaar this season but they were no match for Manchester United.

Odion Ighalo and Daniel James had put Manchester United 2-0 up by the time that Chong appeared with twenty minutes left. Juan Mata added a third before Chong set up Mason Greenwood to get himself an assist. Andreas Pereira wrapped up the victory in the 94th minute.

The return at Old Trafford should now be a formality.
