Manchester United v Omonia LIVE: Europa League result and final score as Scott McTominay fires last-minute winner

“It was a reality check” – Erik ten Hag on City game before EL game vs Omonia

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

United dominated the game at Old Trafford but were frustrated by Uzoho, who was only a starting XI due to an injury to regular player Fabiano and scored with his 33rd shot on goal.

Uzoho made several key saves to thwart Marcus Rashford while Casemiro hit the bar before Omonia missed a golden opportunity just before the break when Bruno fired wide in a two-on-one for the visitors.

Nigeria international Uzoho then made a brilliant double save to thwart Antony and then Rashford from close range before the England striker shoved a one-on-one wide wide.

The McTominay winner keeps United’s hopes alive of beating Real Sociedad to first place in Group E with two games to go. Follow the live reaction to United’s late win below:

Scott McTominay finally beats inspired Francis Uzoho with last-minute winner for Man United

In a tweet posted on the day of this Europa League group’s draw, Omonia Nicosia’s backup goalkeeper Francis Uzoho vowed to “definitely die for this post” should he somehow get the chance to play at the club’s home ground, the he has since supported a boy. He got that chance and pretty much did everything in his power to ward off Manchester United. He did it for 93 minutes. He spent the 94th desperately on his back.

Scott McTominay’s winner after his side’s 33rd shot at Uzoho’s goal prevented the seventh-best side in Cyprus from clinching a historic point at Old Trafford last season. It averted one of the more ignominious results in United’s European history and almost sent Erik ten Hag’s side into the knockout stages. A point at home against Sheriff Tiraspol in two weeks is enough to progress.

This was a long night for United, one that saw Ten Hag players visibly despair as time went on. Countless chances went begging. For all of Uzoho’s brilliance, his goalie also lived an enchanting life at times. Omonia’s resistance was finally broken by a clever turn from substitute Jadon Sancho in a cameo that could reignite his faltering Old Trafford career and McTominay’s drive past the poor keeper.

‘No coincidence’ Arsenal ended Bodo/Glimt’s winning streak, says Arteta

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said it was “no coincidence” that it was his in-form side that tonight ended Bodo/Glimt’s run of 14 straight home wins.

The Gunners left the Arctic Circle with a hard-fought 1-0 Europa League win as Bukayo Saka scored the only goal of the night in lucky circumstances.

The win, Arsenal’s 11th in 12 games in all competitions this season, puts them on the verge of qualifying for the knockout rounds.

FT Man Utd 1-0 Omonia

The win means Manchester United still have a chance to top Group E with two games to go. Real Sociedad have won all four games so far but will play against United again in the last group game.

It seems likely that these two teams will advance, but the second-placed team will have to go through a play-off match with one of the eliminated Champions League teams to reach the round of 16.
