Rashford scores victor but Man United suffer Ibrahimovic blowPor Kemen Subia Abr 21, 2017
Marcus Rashford sent Manchester United into the Europa League semi-finals after Anderlecht took Jose Mourinho's side to extra-time in a breathless encounter.
Star of Sunday's 2-0 win over Chelsea, he notched the decisive goal by gathering Marouane Fellaini's knock-down, making space with a sharp Cruyff turn and firing in a low shot with his left foot.
Jose Mourinho at Manchester United Training Ground, Manchester, April 19.
The Red Devils broke the deadlock in the 10th minute as Rashford teed up Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who thumped the ball home from just inside the box. "At the same time, Anderlecht know that if they don't score, they're out".
'I am looking to play as many games as I can between now and the end of the season.
Anderlecht are fighting against the odds and the record books at Manchester United, but manager Rene Weiler believes his players can land a knockout blow in their Europa League quarter-final. Yes, but he needs to give me things that I like.
"That's why [Marcus] Rashford, even without scoring goals, is always a player I trust and I play".
"The same way I know what the players like, I think the players also know what I like", he added. Can Anderlecht can smother him in the second leg?
Outcome? When he did return, in December, Mkhitaryan scored in three consecutive games, helping United to wins in the Europa League, over Tottenham and Sunderland.
His most recent cameo against Anderlecht was as unimpressive as the whole of this season on a personal level and barring very few of stand-out performances - against West Ham in the EFL cup, Middlesbrough and Watford in the league, Martial has nearly been anonymous, completely in contrast to the attention he was receiving and rightly so, last season.
"His experience, his know-how of this knock-out phase - I think he's a player that can be useful tomorrow [Thursday]".
Still, Lyon will be favorite to reach its third European semifinal after reaching the last four of the Champions League in 2010 and the now-defunct European Cup Winners' Cup in 1964.
Rashford had a cracking game against Chelsea where he stunned the Premier League leaders with the opening goal. You always hope to be the number one and it is something you work for every week.
