London [England], Sept.30 (ANI): Zlatan Ibrahimovic headed a second-half goal as Manchester United laboured a 1-0 victory over Ukrainian minnows Zorya Luhansk in their second Europa League Group A clash here at Old Trafford on Friday.

After the goalless first-half, United finally managed to pull one back for themselves when Ibrahimovic nodded in substitute Wayne Rooney's mis-hit shot at the far post.

The 69th-minute goal, which was enough to seal victory over Zorya Luhansk, was Ibrahimovic's first in five matches since joining the Jose Mourinho-led side from Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in July this year, the Guardian reported.

United, which are standing at sixth spot in premier League, will now lock horns with Fenerbahce on October 21. (ANI)
