United threatened only twice before the brea, Pogba’s free-kick was saved comfortably by Jones before Martial fired a decent chance wide.
They stepped up the tempo after the break but failed to open up a well-organised Feyenoord team and were punished on the break.
It was another bad night in Holland for United, a year to the day since Luke Shaw was ruled out for the season after suffering a double fracture of his leg and United slipped to a 2-1 defeat to PSV Eindhoven in their opening Champions League game.
Happily there were no injuries last night – only bruised pride.
