Manchester United secured a place in the quarter finals of the Champions League for a fifth successive season thanks to a brace from Javier Hernandez in their 2-1 win over Marseille.

Hernandez scored either side of half time to make it five goals in five appearances and take his tally to 16 goals in his debut season.

However they had to endure a nerve-shredding final few minutes after an own goal from Wes Brown in the 82nd minute.
