  • End of 2nd Half
90+5' 

Full time. That's it. United have an important victory, and won that means that they can focus on the Europa League for the final games of the season. They controlled most of the match, were a touch fortunate given they wasted some excellent first-half chances, but they should be confident of progressing next week. The only downside? Yet more ruddy injuries.

90+4' 

Aspas wins a free kick with a minute to go. Celta can hoof it in from 50 yards out.

Aspas swaps passes with Jonny, and he fires a shot at waist-height wide of the near post.

71' 

That's Rashford's 19th goal of the season.

69' 

It is now legitimate to wonder if United would already have a top four spot had they played Rashford as their first-choice from the start of the season, as well as Zlatan Ibrahimovic has done at times.

Rashford almost sprints past Mallo on the inside right, so he blocks off his run and gets booked.

65' 

Lingard crosses from the left and Alvarez saves. Guidetti then forces Bailly to concede a corner on the left. This is desperate stuff from United.

62' 

Rashford jinks towards goal into the box, and this time his effort towards the top corner... goes much further away from goal and the danger passes.

60'

Sisto comes inside onto his right foot, his shot flicks the top of Valencia's boot and Romero leaps to tip it over.

58' 

Martial has been a touch improved of late, but it's not obvious who should make way.

56' 

No subs for United are warming up, so Mourinho seems content for now. With the exception of Mata, there aren't really any goals on the bench.

54' 

United shouldn't relax, as both of the strikers on the pitch for Celta have done well in Europe this season.

52'

A cross from the right is chipped into Guidetti, but he glances it a few yards wide of the far post. That's a decent chance for Celta.

51' 

A spell of Celta possession threatens to open up United...

49' 

United win a corner high up on the right wing. It's worked to Pogba, who dithers on the ball, drills it into Fellaini, but the midfielder can't control.

47:00 

Ander Herrera, who is again quiet after a poor showing at the weekend, clears a free kick into the box.

  • 2nd Half
46' 

We go again.

45' 

There is almost nothing to say. That's half-time. Alvarez has played well, United have been faffing inexcusably.

43' 

United keeping the ball in Celta's half, but give up a goal kick lightly. This has been quite jazz from them so far.

41' 

United push forward down the left.

39'

Lingard is put in behind the defence when Rashford sets him free down the middle, and Alvarez saves yet again. The chances are stacking up.

37' 

Mkhitaryan is clattered as he breaks down the left wing, and Hernandez brushes him to the ground. No booking.

35'

Pogba sets up Mkhitaryan for a one-on-one with Alvarez, but the 'keeper manages to block the shot.

32' 

United break down the middle with Mkhitaryan but he wastes his layoff. The danger passes and Celta hit it long under pressure.

31' 

Mkhitaryan flicks a ball inside the box for Lingard, but he strains at the ball and can only watch as it rolls away from goal.

30'

Sisto lashes a shot at goal from outside the box, but Romero gets down smartly to pounce on the ball.

28' 

Pogba has apparently won none of all of his visits to Spain so far in his career.

27' 

Free kick for United, about 45 yards out. Blind floats it to Fellaini at the back post, but it's cleared easily enough.

26' 

Radoja goes in with a heavy challenge to stop Rashford progressing down the left.

25' 

Rumit's enthusiasm has not been dimmed by the non-event so far.

23' 

Mkhitaryan gets to the touchline after riding a challenge outside the box, but he can't keep the ball inside before turning it towards his teammates.

22' 

Sisto tries to emulate Rashford, but drags his shot wide of the near post.

20'

Rashford cuts in from the left. He thinks about a shot, reconsiders, and taps the ball inside a little more, then curls a shot to the top corner that Alvarez stretches to push it away.

17' 

Pogba strides towards the box after winning the ball in his own half, and he's charged to the ground by a defender. United want a free kick, but the referee could not give a chuff.

16' 

United are having most of their luck when they press the defence, but still are unable to create a chance.

14' 

Darmian did it, but wasn't booked. It didn't seem much more than a routine foul, and it was his sock that got torn, not his ligaments.

12' 

Balague has a point here.

11'

The best chance of the match so far, and it's for Celta. A cross from the right for Wass, running away from his marker, and he heads just wide of the post.

Another foray down the right for Celta is quickly extinguished, and United have the ball in their own defence now.

7' 

Guidetti spins towards goal, and lashes a shot well wide of the goal.

5' 

Celta press up on the right wing now, but nothing doing so far. It's tight.

3' 

United have dominated the early stages, but they haven't actually done anything that interesting yet. A bold strategy.

1' 

The match gets underway.

20:00 

Here we go. Get your bets on now.

19:50 

United just need an away goal. If they can get that, then they will be confident. Then they can rest players against Arsenal, and stack their chips in the favour of a Europa League victory. Top four looks beyond them right now.

19:45

19:30 

Celta Vigo have Iago Aspas and John Guidetti in their starting eleven, so if they both score that will absolutely delight City and Liverpool fans, who had Aspas (Liverpool) and Guidetti (City) on their books, because they absolutely despite United.

19:25 

So then, United have Pogba playing in the hole, which is probably his best line up in this current United squad, if not his overall best position. He should be able to act as a kind of target man, with his excellent close control and physique. It won't hurt to see him closer to the goal, either.
