Manchester United cruised to a comfortable 4-1 win over Istanbul Basaksehir on Tuesday to take them top of Group H.

The Red Devils looked on from the first minute in a line-up which included Donny van de Beek and Edinson Cavani, making his first start for the club.

Bruno Fernandes scored United's first after seven minutes with a rasping half volley from 20 yards out.

The Portugal international had his second shortly after when Mert Gunok dropped a routine cross at the midfielder's feet.

Marcus Rashford was brought down in the box and then converted from the penalty spot to put United ahead 3-0 after 35 minutes.

It was the first time United had lead by three goals at half-time since 2007.

Basaksehir did get a goal back through Deniz Turuc's curling free-kick.

But Daniel James came off the bench to score his first goal for United since March to round off the victory.

United are now top of Group H on nine points, three ahead of PSG and RB Leipzig.
