Second-half goals from Ashley Young and Javier Hernandez allowed Manchester United to take a giant stride towards the Europa League last 16 in Amsterdam following their 2-0 win over Ajax.

And after Young had broken the deadlock just before the hour, Hernandez finished off a flowing move to make next Thursday's second leg at Old Trafford a formality.
