Roberto Martinez's side found the breakthrough on 28 minutes through Leighton Baines, who converted from the penalty spot after defender Phil Jones was adjudged to have handled Lukaku's shot in the box.

Things went from bad to worse for United three minutes before the interval, as Kevin Mirallas beat the offside trap before firing past David De Gea from an acute angle to give Martinez's troops a healthy lead heading into the second half.
