Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men took the lead in the 31st minute when Marcus Rashford latched onto to Victor Lindelof’s superb pass over the top, controlled it with one touch and calmly finished. It was a lovely goal, even though TV missed it in real .

It also came from United’s first shot of the game and Rashford’s 20th goal of the season.

Harry Maguire also picked up a yellow card, meaning that he too will miss the second leg in Manchester.
