Jose Mourinho praises match-winner Marcus Rashford

Jose Mourinho praises match-winner Marcus Rashford

Rashford's second-half free-kick earned United a 1-0 win at Celta Vigo, with the vital away goal putting them in firm control ahead of next week's return leg at Old Trafford.

"We need to be human with the players, be sensible and use common sense in the Premier League".

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho described Marcus Rashford as "a kid who is in love with football" after his superb free-kick saw off Celta Vigo.

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. At half-time it should be already, I don't want to say three, but two, and the result is open and I think we did enough to have the result closed.

But Celta favourite Guidetti pointed to the Galician team's big wins against Spanish giants Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid in recent years as evidence that they can mount a comeback at Old Trafford. "We tried until the end to win the match and score goals but we missed chances". But it remains to be seen whether all of them would get to play on Thursday.

In-form Rashford, who also scored a dramatic extra-time victor against Anderlecht in the quarter-finals, scored a bending a free-kick into the corner in the 67th minute to ensure United take an away goal and a massive advantage going back to Old Trafford in a week's time for the semi-final second leg.

But near-daily anti-government protests were triggered by the ruling and have continued across the country, with more than 40 people killed.

Injury-hit United had also only won twice in 22 visits to Spain and knew they were in for a tough battle in Galicia.

It was Celta who carved out the first chance after 10 minutes as Daniel Waas managed to head wide of the upright from close range.

Until the goal United's finishing had been poor with Celta keeper Sergio Alvarez thwarting them several times.

And Owen believes United are better with the teenager than with Ibrahimovic. Rashford strode away and drew a foul from Hugo Mallo 25 metres out. He had a fantastic shot in the first half with that lovely save and then the free-kick is work - he works every day and loves to work.

To add to United's injury woes, substitute Ashley Young was forced off with a hamstring problem in added time.
