STORY: Manchester United ground out a 1-0 win at Partizan Belgrade in a tense Europa League Group L clash on Thursday (October 24) as Anthony Martial's 43rd-minute penalty put his side in a commanding position to reach the knockout stages.

The match was played under tight security amid fears of crowd trouble but it produced a cracking atmosphere as Partizan coach Savo Milosevic's appeals to home fans to refrain from offensive chants proved successful.

United top the group on seven points from three games, two ahead of Dutch side AZ Alkmaar who thrashed Kazakhstan's Astana 6-0 at home.

Partizan have four points and Astana none.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted with United's first away win in 12 games in all competitions and their first away goal since August, but pointed out the performance left a lot to be desired.

Solskjaer also singled out 19-year old left back Brandon Williams and praised the home fans, who generated an electrifying atmosphere in the cauldron of Partizan's stadium.
