To say things didn't go to plan for Manchester United in the first half in Cyprus would be an understatement.

In a Europa League group stage fixture that the Red Devils were heavy favorites to win, Erik ten Hag's side found itself down 1-0 at halftime after minnows Omonia took the lead in the first half.

The hosts grabbed the shock advantage on a barreling run into the United end where Karim Ansarifard fired a shot past David De Gea.

However, order was restored after the break, as second-half goals from Marcus Rashford - who scored twice - and Anthony Martial eventually gave Manchester United a 3-2 victory.
