Manchester United made hard work of it, but they are into the Europa League semi-finals.

The Red Devils beat Anderlecht 2-1 at Old Trafford to seal a 3-2 aggregate win, only after the tie had gone to extra time.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan put United ahead in the first half but their advantage was short lived as the Belgians grabbed an equaliser.

United netted an extra time winner through Marcus Rashford, in between scoring two disallowed goals.

Mkhitaryan and Jesse Lingard commented on Twitter shortly after the final whistle.

 

United face a wait to see who they will play in the semi-finals. It will be one of Lyon, Ajax, or Celta Vigo.

Their night was marred by injuries suffered to both Marcos Rojo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic which have the potential to be serious.

At a crucial stage of the season their squad depth is being tested, and Marcus Rashford's return to form could not be better timed.
