Man Utd 6-2 Roma – thrashing from united, after weak start
Manchester United came from behind to take major steps to get a place in next month’s Europa League final. The first half of the match saw United 2-1 down, but a five-goal second half completed an astonishing turnaround.
Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani both scored twice. Paul Pogba and Mason Greenwood also netted a goal each.
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told BT Sport: “No, I don’t feel the job is done but it was a good job done. We did well but we know they have quality – the second half was very good.
“It’s easy thinking who should play, but who should not play?
“That’s a very good team, it worked really good against Tottenham. Mason Greenwood should be disappointed not to be playing but it’s about balance. We know we have got creative players who can create big moments. Paul Pogba’s position today was very good in that position, he’s allowed some freedom. He’s got the foundation behind him. The difference today is we took most of our chances.
“The character showed that they came back and didn’t lose their heads. Maybe five or 10 minutes at the end of the first half we didn’t look great, but we got ourselves together. The two goals are junior, schoolboy errors that shouldn’t happen at this level.”
Manchester United – next game is in the Premier League against Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday, 2 May (16:30 BST).
