Thursday Recap

Manchester United had to dig deep to beat Partizan in Serbia after the hosts turned up the volume in the second half.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made seven changes from the 1-1 Premier League draw against Liverpool, with Brandon Williams and James Garner starting for the Red Devils.

The victory was Solskjaer's first away success in all competitions since becoming the permanent coach at Old Trafford, but United captured the three points with their only shot on target.

Martial returned to the starting XI for the first time since August after injury, with the France international hittting the winner from the penalty spot after Williams was fouled in the box.

The young full-back burst into the area two minutes before half-time, and Nemanja Miletic brought down the 19-year-old.

The hosts were inspired in the second half, forcing United onto the back foot for the rest of the game.

United goalkeeper Sergio Romero was busy throughout the match, but the Argentina international kept a clean sheet.

Arsenal appeared on their way to a surprise defeat before they were saved by two moments of magic from Pepe.

The forward has struggled in his opening days as a Gunner since a big-money move from Lille, but the player rose from the bench to save his new club.

London-born Marcus Edwards opened the scoring after eight minutes for the Liga NOS team, but Gabriel Martinelli nodded home an equaliser after connecting with Kieran Tierney's 32nd-minute cross.

The visitors were back in the lead again only four minutes later when Bruno Duarte fired home his team's second.

The Gunners struggled to create with conviction, forcing Unai Emery to send Pepe on for the final 15 minutes.

Pepe turned out to be the difference and match winner. The attacker curled home a free-kick equaliser with 10 minute left on the clock, and then repeated his effort by finding the top corner with yet another free-kick on the edge of the box during injury time.

Wolves fought back from a goal down to move up to second in Group K.

Slovan Bratislava earned an 11th-minute advantage from Andraz Sporar's deflected effort, but the Premier League side rallied.

Romain Saiss levelled the score for the visitors after 58 minutes and Raul Jimenez's penalty five minutes later was the winner. The Mexican had been fouled by Vernon de Marco in the box, and the Wolves No. 9 composed himself to strike from the spot.

Diogo Jota was given his marching orders with three minutes remaining after gaining a second yellow card.
