Bruno Fernandes’ 96th-minute strike made it 2-0 when the Manchester United midfielder raced clear on goal before finishing impeccably.
But the game also saw Cristiano Ronaldo’s first goal in seven games – putting an end to his longest goal drought at club level since 2009.
While Ronaldo appeared to be hitting a stumbling block in his goalscoring spree, United were also on the cusp of another minor crisis had we dropped more points tonight.
After 51 minutes, Yves Bissouma took too much time on the ball and was caught in possession by Scott McTominay before Ronaldo drove forward approximately 25 yards from goal.
The 37-year-old eased past Adam Webster before smashing the ball into the back of the net.
Ronaldo took to social media after the match.
He tweeted: “Back on track! Nobody gives up and there’s only one way to get back on track: hard work, team work, serious work. Everything else is just noise. Let’s go Devils!”

Fernandes went on to seal the win in stoppage-time.
Ronaldo could be hitting out at premature claims that he is finished at the highest level.
Everyone has an opinion on the best football of all-time, but we know he will continue scoring goals for United no matter what.
