Substitute Scott McTominay scored a stoppage-time winner as Manchester United kept alive their hopes of qualifying as group winners in the Europa League with one nil victory over Omonia Nicosia.

McTominay, introduced with less than 10 minutes remaining, fired in the winner after fellow substitute Jadon Sancho teed him up in the box.

The result means United remain three points behind Group E leaders Real Sociedad, who beat Sheriff Tiraspol for their fourth win in as many matches in the competition.

Erik ten Hag’s side dominated and had several huge chances to score but were left frustrated until McTominay’s winner.

Omonia goalkeeper Francis Uzoho was undoubtedly the visitors’ best performer as he kept out 11 of United’s 12 shots on target.

But he could do nothing to stop McTominay’s strike in the 93rd minute, having saved three big chances for Marcus Rashford in the first half.
