Shakhtar Donetsk's Taison lands late blow to force draw with Manchester United

United had the better of the early exchanges, Robin van Persie, who was returning to the starting XI for the first time since the opening group win against Bayer Leverkusen, curling a shot high over the bar in the ninth minute after a super ball by Tom Cleverley.

Donetsk, Ukraine: Brazilian striker Taison's goal 14 minutes from time denied Manchester United a second successive win in the Champions League group stage on Wednesday as Shakhtar Donetsk grabbed a 1-1 draw.

The draw -- which sees Shakhtar remain unbeaten at home to English teams -- leaves both sides unbeaten after two games with four points.

The point -- United took the lead through Danny Welbeck early in the first-half -- will ease some of the pressure on manager David Moyes, whose side have made their worst start to a league season since 1989.
