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".
Francia: destacan la juventud de Macron y el freno del populismo
El presidente de la Comisión Europea, Jean-Claude Juncker, felicitó hoy a Macron por su victoria en las elecciones presidenciales y dijo que estaba feliz de que "los franceses hayan elegido un futuro europeo".
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".
Man City hang on to beat Leicester and move third
Bournemouth secured its top-flight status for another year after a 2-2 draw against Stoke at Dean Court. The home side took the lead when Leroy Sane crossed for David Silva to finish on 29 minutes.
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.

Prime Minister-elect Minnis told supporters: "This was a long fought battle, but the victory is not mine, the victory is yours". More than 180,000 people are registered to cast their ballots for the 39 seats in the House of Assembly.
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.
