Former Liverpool keeper Mignolet prevented Martial adding to United’s tally as he finger-tipped a low shot on to the post just before the break as the first half ended 1-1.

Odion Ighalo was introduced midway through the second half for his Europa League debut for United to try and provide them with a spark.

Bruges squandered a golden opportunity in the 77th minute when Kossounou scuffed his shot on goal wide of the post.

Bruno Fernandes’ introduction immediately improved the United side and created a barrage of chances in the final 10 minutes but failed to find the winner.

Celtic also took home a vital away goal as they drew 1-1 at FC Copenhagen.
