UEFA Europa League semi-final is upon us Celta Vigo will take on Manchester United at the Estadio de Balaidos on Thursday night.

Celta had one of its best chances early in the game, a close-range header by midfielder Daniel Wass that missed wide in the 11th. The prospect of the tie still being in the balance will see the Red Devils boss rest few of his players, which could see Ander Herrera and Eric Bailly given a breather against Arsene Wenger's side. We are not going to Arsenal to say "beat us" or 'beat us 5-0 or 6-0.' We are going there to fight for a result.

He said: 'A set-piece does us and it's a good set-piece but our keeper is disappointed with it. I think we're happy with the 1-0. "It is half-time, they are leading 1-0 and we have to go out and make the second half count".

"We are always confident but it's still a semifinal and anything can happen".

"It was a physical game in the air, with plenty of disputes for the second ball". "We have got the belief and the manager believes in us to get there".

United will next take on Arsenal in their Premier League clash on Sunday, while Celta will lock horn with Malaga on the same day.

"The most important thing is to be ready for the occasion and to cope well with the moment", Mourinho told MUTV. Hopefully, if we get to the final, he can score again.

Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Pogba said: "On the pitch, we don't look at the age". We played well, we created some chances in the first half, second half as well.

"I think the last match against Swansea was our last chance to fight for top four, so I am going to rest players", he added, referring to United's 1-1 home draw last weekend.

"It's not easy to keep a clean sheet against Celta".

The 20-year-old had a very impressive loan spell with Portuguese side Belenenses, Pereira returned from his loan spell back in January and was rewarded for his efforts with his first senior appearance in theFA Cup victory over Wigan Atheltic.

One moment of magic from the England global settled a tight encounter as he pulled his strike across Celta Vigo goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez into the far corner 23 minutes from time.
