Manchester United reached the Europa League knockout stages with two games to spare after goals by Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford secured a 3-0 home win over Partizan Belgrade in Group L on Thursday.

The result left United top of the group on 10 points from four games, two ahead of Dutch side AZ Alkmaar who enjoyed a 5-0 rout of Kazakhstan's Astana. Third-placed Partizan have four points and Astana none.

Teenager Greenwood fired United ahead in the 22nd minute when he took a through ball in his stride and beat his marker before steering a low shot past goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic.

Martial made it 2-0 in the 33rd with a deft finish after neat footwork and Rashford added the third early in the second half with a left-foot thunderbolt from inside the penalty area to cap a flowing move.
