Twitter Reactions: Manchester United reach the Europa League Final!

Fight between Manchester United and Celta Vigo players

A Beckham-esque free-kick goal from Marcus Rashford was the difference between Manchester United and Celta Vigo, with the English team leading the way with an away goal in the first leg clash between the 2 sides. Come the second leg at Old Trafford, a nervy 1-1 draw means United just nicked it on aggregate (2-1), reaching the Europa League finals for the first time ever. An intense match which had goals, brawls, red cards and last moment chances, we take a look at some of the best Twitter reactions.

 

Pre-match thoughts from Mourinho

 

SPORF on Twitter

QUOTE: Jose Mourinho: “Tonight’s match vs Celta Vigo is the most important match of our history.” 😳

A Pogba showboating display was the first highlight, 11 minutes into the game

Paul Pogba. Simply world class. https://t.co/DBU2XihGQd

That piece of skill by Pogba was outrageous

 

6 minutes later, the Spanish side’s embarrassment increased as United scored to make it 2-0 on aggregate

A 4th goal of the season for @Fellaini – a vital one! Lovely deep, back-post cross from @MarcusRashford & Fellaini heads past Alvarez. #UEL

 

Tweets took a hilarious turn after Fellaini scored

@ManUtd @Fellaini GENETICALLY MODIFIED BROCCOLI DOING WONDERS FOR UNITED

Marcus Rashford: Has scored or assisted each of Manchester United’s last four goals in the Europa League #UEL

This tweet summed up Celta Vigo’s first half performance

 

James McManus on Twitter

Celta Vigo look every bit like a side 12th in La Liga. Nice and tidy and completely non-threatening .

 

Celta Vigo started well and improved as the second half started

 

Squawka Football on Twitter

Man Utd have completed just 69% of their passes since half-time. Sloppy start to the second half.

One fan took it too far to vent out his feelings

 

JC on Twitter

Imagine being bossed by Celta Vigo. Mourinho has no shame really hope he dies

Inspite of the Red Devils losing their spark, Marcus Rashford was still unstoppable

 

Squawka News on Twitter

There’s only one way to stop Marcus Rashford… 😏

While Celta pushed, but couldn’t convert their chances

 

Trevor Lloyd on Twitter

If Celta Vigo had someone that could finish, they would be half decent 😂 I hope ManUtd defend this poorly against us 😂😂

 

And at the 85th minute mark, things got lively. First, Celta’s most unlikely scorer headed the ball into the net.

 

LaLiga on Twitter

GOAL! Roncaglia heads home from a Beauvue cross and Celta level at 1-1 (2-1 agg ) (85). #UEL

OptaJoe on Twitter

5 – Five of Celta Vigo’s 11 away goals in the Europa League this season have come in the 80th minute or later. Drama.

 

And it all heated up after the goal, with a massive brawl involving players from both teams

 

Darwin Benitez on Twitter

Celta de Vigo are literally going out with a fight. #ManchesterUnited #EuropaLeague

And 2 red cards!

 

SPORTbible on Twitter

Bailly and Roncaglia red carded. Scenes! https://t.co/0PEc6kNsmX

2 – Eric Bailly has now been sent off twice in the Europa League in 2016/17, more than any other player in the competition. Mist.

 

John on Twitter

Can we do an arrangement where Bailly’s red card is transferred to Smalling? @EuropaLeague @UEFA

Not only is it the theatre of draws 😂😴for the special one-one….😂😂 It’s now 1-1 with red cards 😂😂😂 https://t.co/dBoxVa54Rf

6 minutes of added time followed

 

B/R Football on Twitter

Manchester United fans looking at six minutes of added time like…

And both sides were close to changing the outcome of the match

First a disallowed Herrera goal to seal the deal

 

SPORTbible on Twitter

90+4 Herrera scores but it’s disallowed… Still 2-1 on aggregate! #MUFCCelta https://t.co/eV8bNul6Ie

And a last gasp Celta Vigo chance spurned
