However after 28 minutes the visitors took the lead through Callum Gribbin, who curled a free kick from the edge of the box past Yanick van Osch.

Two minutes into the second half Manchester United were awarded a penalty after a foul by Maarten Peijnenburg on the Red Devil’s Dutch defender Timothy Fosu Mensah and Marcus Rashford made it 2-0 from the spot. Rashford then completed the scoring with twenty minutes to go.

A poor start by PSV in the competition and they will need to get themselves back into the group when they face CSKA Moscow in two weeks.
