Wayne Rooney opened the scoring with a sumptuous dink whileJuan Mata added a second before goalkeeper Brad Jones diverted a Zlatan Ibrahimovic effort into his own net and Jesse Lingard completed the scoring.
However, what might please Jose Mourinho most of all is the fact his side managed an impressive 12 shots on goal, their most in any game in all competitions this season.

Summer signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan was handed a rare start and also made an impact as he sought to impress Mourinho and force his way into his plans for the season.
The former Dortmund man mustered a game-high six shots in the match, two more than he had managed in his previous 134 minutes of action combined for Manchester United this season in all competitions.
United's victory means they need just a point from their final group game away at Zorya to confirm their place in the knockout stages of the competition.
