In his postgame interview, United Manager Jose Mourinho lamented his club's failure to kill off the game.
United could have played even more matches had they not succumbed to a 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup quarter-finals - a game that saw Herrera dismissed in the 35th minute. For the club to bench arguably the best player they have, for what is an emotional reason, in the game that will define their season as either a fail or a pass, seems odd.
The Red Devils survived a late scare against Spanish side Celta Vigo to join Ajax in the 24 May final in Stockholm.
"So I have to play them but I have to play them mixed".
Timeless Season 2 Will Happen After All
The second season will consist of 10 episodes, which is three less than the 13 that were initially ordered for Season 1. In a surprising reversal of fortune, TVGuide.com has learned that the show is instead coming back.
Mourinho accepts it could well be seen as a season-defining match, but believes the groundwork put in during this taxing first season means the campaign has been a success already.
The second leg tie produced a 1-1 draw, but following a nervy finish, United squeezed through the tie on a 2-1 aggregate scoreline. "If everything goes normally, and we have no problems, Sergio plays in the final". We had a fantastic record of 25 matches [unbeaten].
"In the final they will be playing against an Ajax team who play the way Ajax have always played - entertaining, attack-minded and looking to get on the front foot".
"We don't have more".
I've not gambled on Europa League - Mourinho
Sky customers can now upgrade to Sky Sports for the Premier League run-in and an unmissable summer of sport. There are not many things Arsene Wenger has not accomplished under his Arsenal's tenure as coach.
Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero has shrugged off suggestions he could move to Inter Milan in the summer, insisting he feels happy with his "important" role at Old Trafford. "They sensed that very quickly on the pitch, the players, and they used it very well". I never saw, in all my career, two goalkeepers who are such friends because it's a position where you always have a little bit of rivalry, especially if they are both at the same kind of level.
"You are speaking about Argentina national goalkeeper and Spain national goalkeeper", Mourinho added.
The final whistle was blown moments later and Celta's players slumped to the ground, some of them holding their heads in their hands and others in tears. After Ajax player Donny van de Beek hit the crossbar, two substitutes managed to cut the deficit in aggregate to one goal for Lyon with nine minutes remaining, as Rachid Ghezzal headed Maciej Rybus' left-wing cross into the net. Some invisible work [from outside] eyes but when I analyse my work I know what I had to do.
The winners of the competition will go into the draw for the group stages of next season's Champions League.
North Korea Would Hold Talks With US Under "Right Co"
The talks, which are held intermittently, are an informal opportunity for the two sides to exchange opinions and concerns. House of Representatives was "obsessed" with a sense of disapproval and warned it of dire consequences.
Despite their opponants' extra 12 days holiday, United fans can take confidence from that fact that Ajax haven't won any of their last six European games away from the Amsterdam Arena.
