Twitter reacts to Manchester United's 2-1 win over Anderlecht
Is your name 'Pogba'? Because I would miss you from 6 yards away.
Manchester United huffed and puffed their way to a 2-1 win after extra-time against Anderlecht last night at Old Trafford, in the quarterfinal of the Europa League. The teams were level at 1-1 after the 90 minutes, just as they were at the Constant Vandenstock Stadium a week ago.
Goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford ensured that the Red Devils made it to the last four of the tournament, along with Ajax, Lyon and Celta Vigo. As usual, the Twitterati were out in full force last night.
Here’s our selection of the best tweets from last night.
First things first. At least this was one thing United had not achieved yet. That has been struck off now, though.
Someone has to take a dig at a Premier League rival. Why not get that out of the way early?
Mkhitaryan is happy
And why wouldn’t he be, when he is in this kind of form?
One of the ‘Class of ‘92’ is impressed by Rashford.
And he is even more impressed. Like his brother, good ol’ Phillip loves the hyperbole too.
Rashford has more love, this time from his captain on the night.
The ‘Theatre of Draws’ was at it again, as United drew 1-1 in the 90 minutes. It is fair to say that this guy was not too happy about that.
There was yet more talk about the officials. As if we hadn’t already had enough of that this week.
It wasn’t all hunky dory for United though, as both Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo suffered injuries. Jose Mourinho doesn’t like the look of it.
And yet, the internet can make you tear your hair out for reasons apart from the injury itself.
Poor Wayne Rooney though, just cannot catch a break.
What a goal this would have been!
Win, lose or tie, troll Jose till we die.
Paul Pogba had another tough day. As a certain Lucas Leiva would say, “Unluckee”.
How could it be a United game without talking about Marouane Fellaini
But to be fair, he made a difference for United. Good lad, Marouane!
