Ibrahimovic joins lengthening injury list at Man United

Phil Neville commentates on Crystal Palace versus Manchester United FA Cup final

Jose Mourinho said he was exhausted but holding onto the dream of winning the Europa League in May after Manchester United beat Anderlecht 2-1 in extra-time at Old Trafford, 3-2 on aggregate, to reach the semi-finals.

United were facing the prospect of a penalty shootout but Rashford, the 19-year-old forward, made the decisive contribution after 107 minutes to seal the win for his team.

Mourinho reserved praise for the Belgian side and their travelling fans, while also taking delight in the fact the Europa League dream, and therefore automatic qualification to the Champions League, is still alive.

United started as sloppily as they ended the first leg in Brussels, but showed a cutting edge so often lacking this term.

Mourinho restored Ibrahimovic to his starting line-up for the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final.

The visitors were always unsafe on the counter-attack, with Teodorczyk's header testing Romero in the 54th minute, but Man United were also causing problems down the other end when Rashford had space to exploit in wide positions.

Leandro Trossard levelled just four minutes later but it was not enough to dent the Spaniards' charge to the last four. Hanni reacted quickest, slotting home a goal he could have added to before half-time had it not been for a heavy touch.

Geopolitical uncertainties to guide crude oil market in near term
Gasoline futures lead the losses the energy futures, with May gasoline RBK7, -3.12% down 1.2 cents, or 0.7%, at $1.699 a gallon. World oil demand growth in 2016 was kept broadly unchanged at 1.38 million barrels per day (mb/d), averaging 95.05 mb/d.

"All you can do is keep trying to create chances, that's what we kept doing and we pinned them back", stated the teenager.

Misplaced passing and under-performing players continued to hamper United. In the 10th minute, Henrikh Mkhitaryan took a pass from Marcus Rashford and blasted it past Ruben Martinez.

In the end, United needed an extra-time victor from Marcus Rashford to seal the tie, but not before experiencing some nervy moments with the Belgians throwing the kitchen sink at them.

Freed by Michael Carrick, Ibrahimovic shanked wastefully wide.

With Ibrahimovic's future at Old Trafford in doubt as he stalls over a new contract, it is not certain the Swedish striker will play for United again after his right knee locked nastily as he jumped for a header in stoppage time of his team's 2-1 victory against Anderlecht.

Extra-time and Pogba nearly scored with an overhead kick before the Frenchman had one disallowed for a foul by Fellaini.

Romero saved from close range after Acheampong ghosted in and Kara Mbodji headed over either side of a disallowed Martial goal.
