Europa League
Mason Greenwood

Manchester United on Friday thrashed AZ Alkmaar 4-0 in the final game of the group stage of Europa League.

With this win, United leads the points with 13 points followed by AZ Alkmaar with 9 points. Both the teams had already qualified from Group L and entered the last 16 of the competition.

After a lacklustre first half, the game picked pace in the second half as United scored four goals in the first eleven minutes after the interval.

Mason Greenwood stole the show, scoring two goals, becoming the youngest player to score a brace in major European competition for the club.

Greenwood is now United’s second-leading goal scorer of the season with six goals under his belt.

United is at fifth position in the Premier League table, five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea in the final Champions League position.

Meanwhile, Arsenal salvaged a 2-2 draw against Standard Liege in Belgium.

The Belgian side took a 2-0 lead before Arsenal pegged back to restore some parity.

Bukayo Saka scored and assisted one in the second half after Samuel Bastien and Selim Amallah had put Liege 2-0 up.

With this result, Arsenal has qualified for the Europa League knockout stage as group leaders, ahead of Eintracht Frankfurt, who lost 2-3 at home to Vitoria SC. (ANI)
