GOAL FLASH! Manchester United 1-0 Colchester United

(51′ mins): Mason Greenwood was agonisingly close to a telling touch to Luke Shaw’s centre – Ryan Jackson drove directly at Sergio Romero as the sides exchanged opportunities immediately after the interval. But having navigated their way past 186 minutes without conceding against Premier League opposition, Colchester were finally breached. Rashford danced his way clear before planting a fierce right-footed strike beyond Gerken, much to the relief of the agitated home crowd.
