Manchester United take the lead in the first leg of the Europa League semi-final.
A superb free-kick from 19 year old, Marcus Rashford, finally beat the Celta Vigo keeper; who’d pulled of some wonder saves in the first half, and deservedly receives our man of the match.
Rashford’s moment of magic means Mourinho’s squad take a goal advantage to the Old Trafford next week, against the Spanish side who haven’t won a game in their last three La Liga meetings. Jose said in a post-match interview: “Let’s hope Old Trafford wants us to win because when Old Trafford wants it, we win”.
Murhinho has confessed that the Premier League is out of reach for the ‘chosen one’ and his red devils, and is focused on winning his first title at the club. However, his side face Arsenal this weekend, so it will be interesting to see his strategy going up against the gunners.
Again, Manchester United have come under criticism surrounding their ability to find the back of the net; a reoccurring problem that has happened throughout their season. Luckily for United, Celta’s football was slow and lacked any promise. They showed nothing to suggest they can overturn the result next week. The winner of the replay is likely to face Ajax in the final, who face Lyon next week after they thrashed the French side 4-1 at home.
