  • Manchester United star slams fake fans who gave him abuse

The profligate Red Devils eventually sealed their place in the last four thanks to a brilliant 107th-minute Marcus Rashford victor that came long after Sofiane Hanni's goal had cancelled out an early opener from Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Ibrahimovic, 35, fell late in the second half as he went for a lofted ball and appeared to hyperextend his right knee when landing before the match went to extra time tied 2-2 on aggregate.

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.

Anderlecht had a super chance to take the lead early in the second period when a wonderful crossfield pass from Tielemans released Teodorczyk, but the Pole's strike was deflected just wide of Romero's post.

Raiding down the left, he set up a string of chances, the best of them for Rashford and Lingard, before and after the break.

Manchester United captain Michael Carrick has confessed that he thought it was going "to be one of those nights" against Anderlecht, only for his side to dig deep for an extra-time win.

Relief at seeing the Ghanaian turn into the side-netting was tempered by the Argentina worldwide leaving on a stretcher, with Dendoncker and Tielemans trying to punish a rejigged backline.

High-powered offense fuels Clippers in game two victory over Jazz
Derrick Favors was forced into a much bigger role when Rudy went down, and in Game 1 , he did exactly what he was supposed to. If not, the Clippers will have a much easier time getting things under control, and that starts with a game three victory.

They did just that in the 32nd minute. Daley Blind slotted in for Rojo and had a tough day. Hanni reacted quickest, slotting home a goal he could have added to before half-time had it not been for a heavy touch.

Misplaced passing and under-performing players continued to hamper United.

The goal came after ten minutes and for the next ten, United were nearly unstoppable, that task falling to Anderlecht goalkeeper Ruben who saved brilliantly from Pogba and Jesse Lingard.

Rashford hit a defender with a cross meant for Zlatan Ibrahimovic but won the rebound and found Henrikh Mykhitaryan.

Man United continued to look the more likely to register in the first half of extra-time, but some sensational defending from Anderlecht's two centre-backs, and a Pogba goal disallowed for offside, kept the score level at the break.

The former Paris Saint-Germain striker, scorer of 28 goals this season, was able to hobble down the tunnel, aided by medical staff, but United's fans will fear they have seen the last of him this season.

The United manager's relief was clear at the final whistle - and he was quick to applaud the visiting support.
