Paul Pogba scored twice as Manchester United secured an impressive win in the Europa League tonight.

Jose Mourinho's side beat Fenerbahce 4-1 at Old Trafford.

Pogba, whose form has been criticised of late, opened the scoring with a 31st minute penalty, before Anthony Martial converted another spot kick three minutes later.

Pogba added another one in first half stoppage time.

And United did not stop there as Jesse Lingard added a fourth three minutes after the break.

Fenerbahce got a consolation through former Man United striker Robin van Persie with seven minutes to go.

United now go second in the group, level on points with Feyenoord and two clear of Fenerbahce.

Earlier, Southampton suffered their first defeat in the tournament this season, losing 1-0 in Italy to Inter Milan.

Antonio Candreva scored the only goal for the Italians, who also had Marcelo Brozovic sent off.
