    Manchester United's Champions League game at Copenhagen was halted numerous times in the first half, including by a medical emergency inside the Parken Stadium.

    The match was initially stopped due to an injury to Jonny Evans but there was a further delay when it emerged someone had been taken ill. The match eventually resumed after a delay of around three minutes before it was announced that the spectator concerned was awake and well.

    It wasn't the only delay of the first half as an individual invaded the pitch parading a Palestinian flag. There was also a brief hold-up when Harry Maguire made the referee aware of something that had been thrown from the crowd.

    Amid the stoppages, United, who must realistically win the game after taking just three points from their first three group games, stormed into a 2-0 lead thanks to a brace from Rasmus Hojlund.

    An intense atmosphere welcomed United in the Danish capital but Erik ten Hag’s men struck the first blow inside three minutes. An excellent team move ended with Scott McTominay driving across for Hojlund to score against his former club at the far post in front of the travelling hordes.

    United made it 2-0 in the 28th minute. Alejandro Garnahco’s initial attempt was saved and Hojlund was there to turn home. Marcus Rashford had earlier been restored to the starting line-up after failing a fitness ahead of Saturday's win at Fulham, with Antony dropping to the bench.
