Brilliant Marcus Rashford free-kick gets Manchester United in front

Marcus Rashford's stunning free-kick separated the two teams in a tight first-leg encounter, with United heading back to Old Trafford with a narrow lead and a priceless away goal.

So it proved again last night during the club's tricky Europa League semi-final enouncter away to Celta Vigo, where Rashford curled in an exquisite freekick that, in its insouciance, reminded you of Federer smugly whipping an unstoppable forehand, or perhaps Salt Bae seasoning a steak.

"Let's hope Old Trafford want us to win because when Old Trafford wants it, we win". "Sometimes the training session finished and he keeps working with my assistant", said Mourinho.

Celta, playing in its first major European semifinal, lost for the first time in its last six European games.

The Portuguese manager has made it clear that winning the Europa League is his main priority over trying to finish in the top four of the Premier League as a way of qualifying for the Champions League next season. That's understandable. United will now have to close it out next Thursday at Old Trafford, in order to reach the Europa Final May 24th in Stockholm.

Garrett 1st to Browns, Bears trade up for QB Trubisky
The Chiefs surged up for. a quarterback. "So we felt good about that". "It was just pretty much silence", Trubisky said. In a draft considered deep in defensive talent, seven of the first 10 players taken were on the offensive side.

"We are going to try (against Arsenal)", Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said.

Rashford, who netted an extra-time victor against Anderlecht in the quarterfinals, drove a right-foot strike over the wall and into the far left corner in the 67th minute, securing United the advantage going into the second leg in Manchester next week.

"We tried to win the match but we missed chances but the team played well, they were compact against a team who are hard to play against".

"Of course it depends on the result, it depends on the way we analyse the situation tomorrow after the match. The Man United fans expect more than sitting back and taking a 0-0 draw so I think we are going to have even more space, although we should have probably kept it 0-0".

The 54-year-old tactician was also asked about recent injuries to defensive duo Bailly and Luke Shaw, saying: "Bailly is ready to play". "The Europa League has been a long competition and thank God we have regained two of the defenders", said Valencia on the topic of team news.
