Leipzig actually put up a good fight for the first part of the game but did not create enough and United’s bench was too strong.

Marcus Rashford scored a hat-trick after coming on, with Bruno Fernandes pulling the strings.


Leipzig’s social media account held up their hands and said United were simply the better side.

Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann admitted this was a chastening night for his side.

He said he felt the scoreline was over the top, but his defence fell apart in the final stages.

He told reporters: “That was a tough one to take. Of course, a result like that doesn’t feel good. The scoreline is much too high.

“All along, you actually felt like things were going okay, but you end up losing 5-0. We paid the price. Aside from the last 20 minutes, our performance wasn’t too bad.”

United are flying high top of the group with six points from two games.

Leipzig and PSG are level on three points before back to back matches against each other, while United face Istanbul Basaksehir, who have no points so far.

Two wins will clinch a Champions League knockout spot with two games to spare. The job is half done.
