Manchester United scraped through to the final of the Europa League after a 1-1 draw in the semifinal second leg ensured a 2-1 aggregate win over Celta Vigo

A jittery performance saw Manchester United edge past Celta Vigo by the slimmest of margins as the two sides played out a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Thursday night. The result gave Manchester United a 2-1 aggregate win and ensured their progression into the final of the Europa League due to be played later this month.

It didn’t take long for Manchester United to grab a big foothold in the tie as Marouane Fellaini headed home the opener – which was also their second goal in the semifinal – after Marcus Rashford found him with a delightful pinpoint cross.

The result earned Manchester United a date in the final with Ajax, with the match set to be played in Stockhold on May 24. Here are the best tweets that emerged in the aftermath of the match
