Ashley Young and Javier Hernandez scored as Manchester United took command of their Europa League last 32 tie against Ajax.
Young opened the scoring just before the hour as he beat Vernon Anita before producing a cool finish past Ajax keeper Kenneth Vermeer.
And Hernandez finished Wayne Rooney's pass at the end of a flowing United move towards the end.
United were the better side after the interval, but they were thankful to keeper David de Gea in the first half for an excellent save from Siem de Jong.
The second leg takes place at Old Trafford on Thursday 23rd February.
