Arsenal, Man United open Europa League with wins
Arsenal and Manchester United both relied on a teenager to get their Europa League campaigns off to a winning start yesterday.
Arsenal, last year's finalist, saw 18-year-old winger Bukayo Saka score one goal and set up the other two in a 3-0 away victory over 10-man Eintracht Frankfurt. And 17-year-old Mason Greenwood became United's youngest ever scorer in European competition when he netted the lone goal in a 1-0 victory over Astana at Old Trafford.
Sevilla, the most successful team in Europe's second-tier competition, also opened with a 3-0 victory at Qarabag, while Kevin Bua struck twice to lead Basel to a 5-0 win over Krasnodar in Group C.
Another Premier League club, Wolverhampton Wanderers extended their winless streak by losing 1-0 to Braga at Molineux.
In a major upset, competition newcomer Wolfsberg routed Borussia Monchengladbach 4-0 away in Group J.
