Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling a little worse for wear today, after celebrating their dramatic victory over Anderlecht long into the night.
Marcus Rashford’s extra-time strike put Jose Mourinho’s side in the hat for this afternoon’s Europa League semi-final draw and the Red Devils will be confident of lifting the trophy outright, with the other three sides left in the competition being Lyon, Ajax and Celta Vigo.
It could have all been different though had Anderlecht punished United for their array of missed opportunities last night, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic coming under fire and Rashford also missing glorious openings, but all was forgotten when the England youngster netted his winner.
Twitter was understandably awash with praise for the teenager, with many pointing out the sheer talent possessed by a youngster who’s tipped to become a superstar in the future – with some predicting he’ll become a Manchester United legend.
Our landlord believes they might have got carried away a bit, as he’s been disappointed with Rashford’s season overall – but he’s been muttering that thought quietly today….
Best thing about Rashford is we don't need to worry too much about those 2 Spanish clubs turning his head! Red through n through! #mufc

Iheanacho last season, Mbappé this – the need for so many to respond to anything Rashford does with 'yeah but x is better' is nauseating

Rashford is only 19 and people comparing him great strikers from the past. Can only think of Owen that was top level at 19 not many others.

I think #mufc fans that support the French national team are the real winners here. We've got both Rashford & Mbappe. Boom!
