‘It was a reality check’ – Erik ten Hag on City match ahead EL match against Omonia

Scott McTominay struck a last-minute winner to save Manchester United from embarrassment in the Europa League after Erik ten Hag’s side were held for 93 minutes by Omonia Nicosia and an inspired perforance from goalkeeper Francis Uzoho.

United dominated the match at Old Trafford but were frustrated by Uzoho, who was only starting due to an injury to first-choice Fabiano, and scored with their 33rd shot on goal.

Uzoho made several key saves to deny Marcus Rashford while Casemiro rattled the crossbar, before Omonia wasted a golden opportunity just before the break as Bruno blazed wide when the visitors had a two-on-one.

The Nigeria international Uzoho then made a brilliant double save to deny Antony and then Rashford from close range, before the England forward pushed a one-on-one well wide of the target.

McTominay’s winner keeps United’s hopes of beating Real Sociedad to top spot in Group E alive with two games remaining. Follow live reaction to United’s late win, below:

Second half: Man Utd 0-0 Omonia

Kick off: Omonia get the match restarted at Old Trafford.

Incredible! Manchester United recover the ball high up the pitch and work it to Ronaldo. He slides in Antony who takes a touch and shoots but draws a diving stop out of Uzoho.

The ball comes to Rashford who mishits his effort but gets it on target. The soft pace of the shot allows the keeper to get up and palm this one away too!

The other Group E match of the night was also goalless right up until the break but Real Sociedad have just gone one up against Sheriff Tiraspol.

Manchester United need to win at Old Trafford to keep up the pace with the Spanish side.
