Marouane Fellaini and Sergio Romero were the shining stars on the night as Manchester United advanced to the Quarter Finals of the UEFA Europa League.
Manchester United advanced to the Quarter Finals of the UEFA Europa League as outright aggregate winners, with a 2-1 aggregate result against FC Rostov.
Juan Mata scored on the night but it was the Marouane Fellaini and Sergio Romero show. Fellaini came on for Paul Pogba, after the Frenchman had to come off for an injury scare and the Belgian commanded the position with aplomb, pulling out some tricks, much to the joy of the home crowd.
Fellaini was hailed on Twitter for the same.
Fellaini has been great since he came on 👏🏻 #MUFC

But, it was Sergio Romero, who saved Manchester United on the night, with multiple clutch saves, which ensured the Red Devils’s qualification into the next phase of the UEFA Europa League.
That Sergio Romero save at the end of the match was top class. pic.twitter.com/naTst3m1Z0

Sergio Romero is better than Arsenal’s, Man City’s & Liverpool’s first & second choice goalkeepers. Not even debatable.

Sergio Romero is actually better than city goal keepers

Sergio Romero got his confidence back under Jose Mourinho which he lost under LVG. Good job Mourinho.
