Manchester United did just about enough to pick up the win at St Etienne in their Europa League round of 32 clash. The Red Devils did come into the tie with a 3-0 win in the first leg and they didn’t really have a lot to worry about in the game.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan got the only goal of the game but was substituted early in the first half. There was some concerns as Eric Bailly was sent off for two yellow cards in the second half but the Premier League side held on for a routine win.
Jose Mourinho can now look forward to an EFL Cup final but there were a lot of fans celebrating this win and we share the best reactions from Twitter.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan has now been directly involved in 11 goals in his last 16 games for Manchester United.
