Some reaction from Rashford
« It’s job done but we would have liked to have played better. I wouldn’t say that we defended badly, it was just mistakes. Mistakes happen in football so we have to move on.
« I think until they scored, we were playing well. We had good movement, we could have probably just got in behind them a bit more and had a bigger threat on goal. But I thought we played well. (The manager) wanted us to be a bit more dynamic, take more chances going forward and try to score. It was positive at half-time and we made positive changes. »
Rashford was then asked about how he found it playing on the left: « I can play both; I think probably that left side is a bit more natural for me. But I enjoy just helping the team.
« We just need to tidy up the mistakes and we’ll be fine, » he added.

Not his night tonight…
Or season for that matter.

Some things never change
United sure needed those subs to make an impact tonight and they did!
Man Utd’s last 5 competitive goals have come via substitutes. ️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️
This is a club record in the Premier League era, beating the previous record of four in a row from Feb 1999, when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored four as a sub in the 8-1 PL win over Nottm Forest. #MUFC

Martinez vital again for United
He’s done exactly what Ten Hag brought him to do during his time at United this season.
October 6, 2022 at 2:41 PM EDT
A five-goal thriller in Cyprus!
We weren’t expecting that but we sure enjoyed it!
October 6, 2022 at 2:39 PM EDT
FT: United avoid a scare in Cyprus!
90+4′ Omonia 2-3 Manchester United
They were 1-0 down at half-time but Ten Hag’s substitutes changed the game tonight and Martial and Rashford took control of the second half to mount the comeback.
October 6, 2022 at 2:37 PM EDT
It’s not Ronaldo’s night
90+3′ Omonia 2-3 Manchester United
He has had plenty of opportunities tonight but it isn’t going his way at all. He should have at least three goals!
October 6, 2022 at 2:34 PM EDT
Omonia pushing for a late equaliser
90′ Omonia 2-3 Manchester United
There are four minutes of added time.
October 6, 2022 at 2:29 PM EDT
OMONIA PULL ONE BACK!
85′ Omonia 2-3 Manchester United
What a finish! Nikolas Panayiotou scores his first-ever European goal with a tidy strike past De Gea. Could this be a nervy final five minutes for Man United?
October 6, 2022 at 2:28 PM EDT
GOAL! Rashford has his second
84′ Omonia 1-3 Manchester United
And surely that will be that! Ronaldo gets the assist and Rashford puts the game to bed. Two goals and an assist for Rashford in this second half!
October 6, 2022 at 2:25 PM EDT
Another change for United
82′ Omonia 1-2 Manchester United
Casemiro makes way for Scott McTominay.
October 6, 2022 at 2:22 PM EDT
Ronaldo off the post!
78′ Omonia 1-2 Manchester United
He cannot believe how that didn’t go in! Dalot sets him up and he won’t have an easier opportunity to score his 700th club goal. The wait goes on…
October 6, 2022 at 2:18 PM EDT
Penalty shout for Omonia!
75′ Omonia 1-2 Manchester United
It comes off Fred’s right arm inside the box but the Brazilian has his arms by his side.
October 6, 2022 at 2:16 PM EDT
Martial’s goal has taken the sting out of the game
73′ Omonia 1-2 Manchester United
United make another substitute as Fred comes on for Antony.
October 6, 2022 at 2:12 PM EDT
Martial has taken his chances this season
Rashford and Martial scoring goals as if it’s the 2019/20 season again!
October 6, 2022 at 2:07 PM EDT
GOAL! Martial puts United in the lead
62′ Omonia 1-2 Manchester United
He’s only been on for two minutes! But it’s another substitute who scores for United. Martial tucks it brilliantly into the bottom left corner after cutting onto his right foot.
October 6, 2022 at 2:03 PM EDT
Martial is coming on for United
60′ Omonia 1-1 Manchester United
The Frenchman will come onto the pitch full of confidence after his Manchester derby brace at the weekend.
October 6, 2022 at 2:02 PM EDT
A little over half an hour to go
58′ Omonia 1-1 Manchester United
United have looked more like themselves after scoring the equaliser but are still lacking the intensity Ten Hag craves. To be fair to Omonia, they aren’t letting the visitors play and are frustrating the Premier League side.
October 6, 2022 at 1:56 PM EDT
53′ Omonia 1-1 Manchester United
Just seven minutes after coming on, Rashford gets United level. It was a cracking strike from outside the box into the bottom right corner.
