Man Utd 4-1 Istanbul Basaksehir: Fernandes double earns hosts win

United avenged their recent defeat in Turkey as three first-half goals helped them to victory at Old Trafford.

Manchester United avenged their recent Champions League defeat to Istanbul Basaksehir as they earned a 4-1 win over the same opposition at Old Trafford.

A brilliant early Bruno Fernandes strike from the edge of the box set Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men on their way to victory.

And the Portuguese quickly made it two for the night as he capitalised on a horrible spill from visiting goalkeeper Mert Gunok to tap home.

He could in fact have had his hat-trick just past the half-horu mark when Marcus Rashford was clumsily tripped in the Basaksehir box.

But Fernandes instead opted to hand the ball to Rashford, who converted in typically cool fashion to all but end the visitors' hopes.

To their credit, Okan Buruk's men rallied in the second half, Deniz Turuc scoring with a well-taken free-kick despite David de Gea's best efforts.

And they could have set up a nervy finish had Edin Visca's thunderous strike found the back of the net rather than hammering the bar soon after.

However, a late breakaway led by Mason Greenwood set Daniel James up to seal the three points from close range and send United top of Group H.
