Manchester United put in another uninspired performance to draw with AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League.
Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said the plastic pitch was one of the “worst ones I have seen for a long while”.
But it would be hard to blame the surface for United’s failure to have a shot on target, with Jesse Lingard hitting their best chance wide late on.
AZ had the better chances, with striker Myron Boadu having a first-half goal correctly ruled out for offside.
United were unlucky not to win a penalty with 10 minutes to go as Stijn Wuytens brought Marcus Rashford down – but the referee did not award it and the video assistant referee system is not in use in the Europa League group stage.
Substitute Lingard walked off with an injury late on, leaving United to end with 10 men.
