Manchester United leave it late to book Europa League semi-final place

Rashford struck the victor in extra-time to send United through 3-2 on aggregate following a 2-1 victory, while Shaw played all 120 minutes and put in an impressive performance at Old Trafford.

"No. Nicky Butt doesn't pick him to play in that game".

Jose Mourinho manager of Manchester United applauds the Anderlecht fans after the UEFA Europa League quarter final second leg match between Manchester United and RSC Anderlecht at Old Trafford on April 20, 2017 in Manchester, United Kingdom.

After the match, Mourinho spoke of the difficulty his players had in navigating the Belgians to advance to the semi-finals.

Ibrahimovic, who has scored 28 goals this season, looked in enormous pain after landing awkwardly in the dying embers of normal time, while Rojo also sustained a knee problem in the first half. "I can't say any more than that, I am not a doctor".

Mourinho used Jesse Lingard in attack with Rashford, to good effect, during Sunday's Premier League win over Chelsea at Old Trafford.

Rojo's injury means he joins fellow defenders Chris Smalling and Phil Jones on United's injury list. You can not do miracles, so miracles I don't expect, but they have to try to do everything to accelerate the process.

The advertisements make the drink look like a "My Little Pony" wet dream, but our colors were a little more muted. Despite the Unicorn Frappuccino's tangy taste, many students agree the drink makes for a good picture.

When it was put to him that he was facing a significant lack of options at centre-back, Mourinho mentioned Daley Blind - Rojo's replacement from the bench - before suggesting Jones and Smalling needed to be "brave".

"But the news is fairly negative I think".

Asked when he thinks Smalling, who has a knee injury, and Jones should make themselves available, Mourinho said: "If it was me I think tomorrow". There are no miracles but with special spirit you can sooner than expected. "So instead of come mid-May, you can come beginning of May".

But Nick Viergever quickly levelled on aggregate before Amin Younes hit a last-minute victor for the Dutch who finished the game with 10 men after Joel Veltman had been red-carded in the 80th minute.

And it was an advantage they didn't relinquish to book their place in the last four, and they will find out who they play in the semi-finals when the draw is made later on this morning.

United advanced 3-2 on aggregate as the English club looks to win Europe's second-tier competition for the first time.
