Manchester United beat Fenerbahce 4-1 in a UEFA Europa League Group A match late Thursday.
The hosts took the lead in the 31st minute when French star Paul Pogba converted a penalty kick.
Manchester United doubled the score three minutes later after another Frenchman, forward Anthony Martial, was successful on another penalty.
A strike by Pogba from 25 meters out in injury time that beat goalkeeper Volkan Demirel put Manchester up by three goals heading to the dressing room at Old Trafford.
Red Devils' English midfielder Jesse Lingard added a fourth goal for good measure as he smashed a shot from outside the penalty box in the second half.
His two goals helped Pogba to be named player of the match by UEFA.
Meanwhile, other Turkish teams in the Europa League each drew against their opponents.
Atiker Konyaspor played to a 1-1 draw against Portugal's Braga in a Group H match in Konya while Osmanlispor and Spanish team Villarreal ended 2-2 in Group L play in Ankara.
