Commentary

Thanks for joining me today. Farewell until next time.
The referee brings things to a halt at Old Trafford, as United leave themselves on the brink of the knockout phase thanks to a comprehensive 4-0 win. They now have a better head-to-head record against both Feyenoord and Fenerbahce, meaning they now only need a point from their final game against Zorya. It was comfortable throughout, while Jose Mourinho will undoubtedly be delighted with performances from the likes of Rooney and Mkhitaryan.
90' + 3' FULL-TIME!
A. Valencia
Assist
Manchester United
90' + 2' Excellent play by Valencia, who held off his man out wide and cut a good pass back to the edge of the box for Lingard.
J. Lingard
Goal
Manchester United
90' + 2' GOAL!!! UNITED HAVE A FOURTH! A lovely goal to wrap things up for the home side. Memphis lets Valencia's cut-back run past him and Lingard picks it up on the edge of the box, caressing a left-footed effort in off the left-hand post. 
90' There will be three minutes added on.
88' United again! The corner is played short and Carrick plays the ball into the right side of the box for Lingard. He takes a touch and lashes goalwards but Jones palms it away.
86' Great effort! Lingard comes in from the left and darts past several defenders before seeing his shot turned around the post by Jones.
84' United may have taken their foot off the gas a little, but they're still looking for more goals, with those substitutions introducing a bit more urgency.
J. Lingard
H. Mkhitaryan
Manchester United
82' And Mkhitaryan, who gets a good ovation after a solid display, makes way for Lingard.
M. Depay
W. Rooney
Manchester United
82' Rooney's race is run. He departs now for Depay who gets 10 minutes to impress.
80' Mkhitaryan is still trying to make telling contributions and he brings a smile to many in the crowd with a cheeky nutmeg on Elia. 
B. Başacıkoğlu
J. Toornstra
Feyenoord
78' Another Feyenoord switch now, as Basacikoglu comes on for Toornstra.
77' United have cruised here to be honest. They are still pushing for more, but as it stands they're in a good position to progress to the next round, though Feyenoord know they will need to beat Fenerbahce in their final group game.
B. Jones
Own Goal
Feyenoord
74' GOAL!!! UNITED WRAP THINGS UP! Rashford does well on the left, racing forward before playing Ibrahimovic into the box. The Swede halts on the goalline and plays the ball into the danger zone, but it takes a touch of Jones and goes in. How embarrassing.
M. Kramer
N. Jørgensen
Feyenoord
73' Jorgensen is finally replaced after an anonymous 73 minutes. Kramer takes his place.
72' And that should've been a third! Ibrahimovic is released into the right side of the area, but he shoots straight at Jones. Mourinho isn't impressed.
M. Rashford
Mata
Manchester United
70' And that is Mata's final action, as he is swiftly replaced by Rashford.
W. Rooney
Assist
Manchester United
69' Excellent vision from Rooney, as he shapes to shoot and picks out the Spaniard.
Mata
Goal
Manchester United
69' GOAL!!! UNITED HAVE A SECOND! Lovely move form the hosts. Vilhena tries a fancy flick just outside his area and Carrick tackles him. Rooney picks up the ball and plays a brilliant disguised pass into the danger zone and Mata prods home.
68' The Feyenoord free-kick comes to nothing, with Berghuis' effort going straight into the wall. United are quick to get back up the other end and Pogba tests Jones from distance.
66' Pogba tracks back after previously losing possession. Feyenoord probe and Vilhena tries to find the opportunity to get the ball into the box, but he is fouled by the Frenchman.
65' Poor from Pogba, as he loses out in midfield and gifts Feyenoord the opportunity to attack.
63' Things have calmed down a bit in the last few minutes, with United slowing the tempo right down. This isn't won yet, though. This could still be dangerous for the hosts.
S. Berghuis
D. Kuijt
Feyenoord
61' First change of the match now, as Kuyt is replaced by Berghuis.
61' Excellent from Mkhitaryan, as he drives at the defence and offloads to Ibrahimovic, who then finds the Armenian in the area and he smashes into the side-netting.
59' Feyenoord are enjoying some respite now as they knock the ball around amongst themselves, but they still aren't offering much of an attacking threat. Jorgensen has been kept very quiet by Blind and JOnes.
57' At times in the first half United appeared to be playing within themselves and without much purpose, but they've been much better since the break. They look a lot more dynamic going forward.
55' United have the ball in the net but Mata was offside, as he prods in Mkhitaryan's wayward effort. He knew that wasn't going to count as soon as he'd hit it.
53' GREAT SAVE! Marvellous play by Mata, as he steals possession back 30 yards from goal, drags the ball away from Toornstra and then attempts to chip Jones, who just about manages to tip it on to the roof of the goal.
51' Nothing given! United are perplexed! Mkhitaryan does brilliantly through the middle, beating multiple men and seemingly set to race through on goal when he is tripped by Toornstra, but the referee incredibly turns the other cheek. 
50' Good covering from Jones, as Elia had Carrick isolated out wide. The winger looked to race beyond the midfielder, but the centre-back smashes away.
48' Good start to the second half for United. Mkhitaryan almost doubles their lead as the ball drops kindly to him in the area, but Dammers does well to get in the way.
46' Off we go for the second half.
The referee brings a close to the first half at Old Trafford with United 1-0 up thanks to a lovely Rooney goal. The visitors could have scored one themselves in a rare period of pressure, but otherwise the hosts have been dominant.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME!
45' There is to be one minute added on at the end of the first half.
43' Elia is unhappy now as he is convinced he is fouled by Valencia out wide, with the Ecuadorian effectively nudging him off the pitch. The referee ignores the winger's protests.
41' United are doing a good job of ensuring Feyenoord don't get too close to their goal as they search for an equaliser just before the break. The hosts are pressing quite high and that is working so far.
39' Better from United now, who are playing with a bit of swagger at the moment. Carrick, Mkhitaryan, Rooney and Ibrahimovic all showcase clever touches in quick succession. 
37' Feyenoord are back on the attack looking for a swift reply, but Jorgensen's eventual effort from the edge of the box is easily gathered by Romero.
Z. Ibrahimović
Assist
Manchester United
35' Fine, composed play by Ibrahimovic, as he picks up the ball 30 yards from goal, glides past his man and picks out Rooney's run. The captain did the rest.
W. Rooney
Goal
Manchester United
35' GOAL!!!! UNITED HAVE THE LEAD! Lovely football from the hosts! Rooney does well out on the right, beaten Karsdorp and squaring in-field to Ibrahimovic. The Swede bides his time then prods the ball into the area for his captain, who provides a delicate chip over Jones. He is now United's all-time leading scorer in Europe with 39.
33' More pressure from United. This time Rooney does well, cutting in from the left and crossing from deep. He looks for Pogba, but Jones does well to come out and nudge it clear.
31' ALMOST THE BREAKTHROUGH! Finally Ibrahimovic clicks with his team-mates, as he cleverly flicks the ball to his right for Pogba. The Frenchman clips the ball towards the back post and Mkhitaryan is there, but he can only hit it straight at Jones on the stretch.
29' United may be seeing all of the ball, but they have done precious little with it and that Feyenoord attack proved they aren't exactly watertight at the back.
27' UNITED ESCAPE! The hosts are lucky to still be on level terms. Elia skipped past Jones way too easily on the left and drilled the ball low into the area. It fell to Karsforp, whose effort was parried away by Romero, and then the goalkeeper somehow denies Kuyt, as he turns the ball around the post with a flailing knee.
26' Good inter-change between Mata and Rooney out towards the right, but the latter's eventual cross is deflected away.
24' Mata latches on to a long ball over Nelom and then cuts inside on to his left foot, but his eventual cross is way too heavy and goes for a goal-kick. A real waste.
22' The hosts are absolutely dominant at the moment and playing some decent football, but it must be highlighted how ineffective Ibrahimovic has been so far. He hasn't asked much of the centre-backs yet.
20' FEYENOORD SURVIVE! The United corner comes out to Mkhitaryan and his shot is blocked. It then falls kindly for Carrick, whose deflected effort squirms under Jones' body, but is just about kept out.
18' More patient build-up play from the hosts, as Shaw and Mkhitaryan link on the left. Eventually the latter tees up Pogba and his long range effort is tipped over by Jones.
16' Mkhitaryan is certainly seeing a lot of the ball and he isn't looking off the pace, using it well in tight areas, though his delivery towards Ibrahimovic from deep on this occasion is easily cut out by Van der Heijden.
14' Good ball by Mkhitaryan, who releases Pogba up the left. The Frenchman uses his strength well against Dammers, but his eventual cross is easily put behind and the resulting corner comes to nothing.
12' The hosts are stroking the ball around patiently now and dictating possession, but when they do get it forward it simply isn't sticking with Ibrahimovic.
10' Good football from United! Mkhitaryan produces a lovely first-time flick to pass the ball to Rooney and keep possession from Van der Heijden. The pair then exchange another one-two and the Armenian is released into the box, but the pass is just a little heavy.
9' United may have started with purpose, but Ibrahimovic isn't doing much to silence his critics, as he has produced some sloppy touches and passes in the opening nine minutes.
7' Goal-kick to Feyenoord now, as Rooney collects a pass in behind the left-back, but he knocks it on to himself and it bounces behind.
5' Feyenoord certainly aren't helping themselves at the moment. Mkhitaryan intercepts a lofted pass and heads it infield to Ibrahimovic. The Swede takes too long on it and is tackled, but Mata pounces, squares to Pogba and he fires over from 30 yards.
3' Very intense opening from United. Valencia sticks another early cross into the box towards Ibrahimovic, but this time it's Pogba who gets to it, heading just over.
2' Good start from the home side, as the ball is hoisted into the area from the right and Ibrahimovic nods it down towards Mkhitaryan, but the Armenian can't quite get on to it.
1' Off we go! United get things started in murky Manchester.
The teams are out on the pitch at Old Trafford, with kick-off just a few moments away.
Although Mourinho's men could only draw 1-1 at home to Arsenal at the weekend, with Olivier Giroud salvaging a point with a late penalty, there have been signs of an upturn in United's play of late and their performance on Saturday was not entirely disheartening. A strong result today followed by a win over West Ham on Sunday could provide them with a catalyst heading into the busy Christmas schedule.
Feyenoord sit a point ahead of United and will be going into the match in good heart, having beaten Zwolle 3-0 at the weekend to stay two points clear at the top of the Eredivisie table. A win for them today will secure their passage to the next round with a match to spare.
United come into this match with a fairly unimpressive six points from four games, with today's opponents Feyenoord and Fenerbahce both beating them. A victory today will lift Jose Mourinho's men above the Dutch side with one match - at home to Zorya - left in Group A. But a defeat would knock them out completely after Fenerbahce beat Zorya earlier.
The major talking point from the hosts' perspective is a rare start for the lesser-spotted Henrikh Mkhitaryan after a difficult start to life at Old Trafford, while Wayne Rooney also plays from the beginning. Zlatan Ibrahimovic leads the line.
Feyenoord subs: Nieuwkoop, Vejinovic, Basacikoglu, Woudenberg, Berghuis, Kramer, Hansson.
Feyenoord starting XI (4-3-3): Jones; Karsdorp, Dammers, Van der Heijden, Nelom; Tapia, Kuyt, Vilhena; Toornstra, Jorgensen, Elia.
Man United subs: De Gea, Rojo, Fellaini, Herrera, Lingard, Memphis, Rashford.
Manchester United starting XI (4-2-3-1): Romero; Valencia, Jones, Blind, Shaw; Carrick, Pogba; Mata, Rooney, Mkhitaryan; Ibrahimovic.
First of all, let's introduce the teams...
