Manchester United drew 0-0 with AZ Alkmaar in a painfully tedious Europa League Group L clash in Holland.

Before the game, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said the plastic pitch was one of the "worst ones I have seen for a long while".

But it was not as terrible as United, who struggled to create any chances and did not manage a single shot on target.

AZ had the better chances but David de Gea made a series of smart saves to keep them at bay.
