Manchester United edged past Spanish visitor Celta Vigo at Old Trafford to set up the club’s first ever Europa League final appearance against Dutch giants Ajax.

The English Football League Cup winners went into the match with a 1-0 lead from the first leg in Spain and took a vital lead at the Theather of dreams after Marouane Fellaini headed home Marcus Rashford‘s cross.

But Celta, needing two goals, levelled on the night through Facundo Roncaglia to set up a tensed final few minutes.

United’s Eric Bailly and Roncaglia were sent off after a mass brawl as the hosts joined Ajax in the final.

The aggregate victory took the Red Devils a step closer to their first ever Europa League triumph and a return to the UEFA Champions League.

They will meet Ajax, who beat Lyon 4-5 on aggregate in the other semi-final, in Stockholm on 24 May.
