Siem De Jong came closest to giving the hosts the lead at the break, but his drive was tipped around the post by De Gea. Meanwhile, the returning Tom Cleverley blasted his shot high and wide for United.

The Red Devils came out the strongest in the second half and they made the breakthrough on the hour when Ashley Young calmly fired in having taken the ball past the keeper.

Aras Ozbiliz flashed a shot over the bar as Ajax pushed for an equaliser, while Christian Eriksen’s stinging effort was batted away by De Gea.
