  • Manchester United beat FC Midtjylland 5-1 in the return fixture of the Europa League round of 32 to progress to the last 16 of he tournament.
  • United were trailing 2-1 after a shock defeat in the first leg of the fixture.
  • Youngster Marcus Rashford had a dream debut, scoring twice after he replaced Anthony Martial ten minutes before the match as the Frenchman suffered an injury in the warm up.

Under performing Manchester United injected life into their dismal campaign with a 5-1 win over FC Midtjylland of Denmark. Debutant Marcus Rashford scored two goals after United opened the scoring with an own-goal.

Ander Herrera converted a penalty in the second half, before Memphis Depay sealed the deal for United with a well taken long range goal.

The victory will come as a relief for under-fire manager Louis Van Gaal, as the team now shift their attention temporarily to the Premier League in a bid to earn a top four finish.
