Mason Greenwood's second-half goal made the difference for Manchester United as they edged out FC Astana in the Europa League.

The 17-year-old netted on 73 minutes with his first senior goal to secure a 1-0 win.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer named a starting line-up with five academy graduates, including Greenwood, Tahith Chong and Angel Gomes.

But the home side could only muster one goal in their Europa League opener.

Elsewhere in United's group, AZ Alkmaar drew 2-2 at Partizan Belgrade.
