Jose Mourinho reveals the secret to Manchester United's win over Anderlecht

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said the prognosis was "fairly negative" after losing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo to injury during Thursday's Europa League quarter-final win over Anderlecht.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is United's leading scorer this season, and pretty much their lone offensive weapon. The Swedish striker looked in pain and held his head in his hands.

Man United were the stronger team in the additional 30 minutes, however, and Marcus Rashford scored the vital goal in the second half of extra-time as the 20-time English champions booked their spot in the final four of the competition.

But Nick Viergever quickly levelled on aggregate before Amin Younes hit a last-minute victor for the Dutch who finished the game with 10 men after Joel Veltman had been red-carded in the 80th minute.

Man Utd advanced to the semi-finals of the Europa League on Thursday night, but their win over Anderlecht was soured by Zlatan Ibrahimovic's injury.

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.

Mourinho, who earlier this season made an apparent criticism of Smalling's pain threshold, said: "We have Daley Blind, who has experience in the position, and I think it is time for Jones and Smalling to be fearless - to risk".

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has stressed that given the poor quality of teams his former side have been playing in the Europa League, they can have no complaints about fixture congestion.

Lyon completed the last-four lineup by beating Besiktas 7-6 in a penalty shootout.

Not for the first time this season, the Portuguese was left ruing a number of missed chances from his side.

Ibrahimovich may have played his last game of the season. There was no repeat of the trouble in Istanbul.

When Mourinho was appointed United manager, it was with the express intention of bringing more trophies to Old Trafford - but also putting the club back in the Champions League.

This was the third quarterfinal to go to extra time, with Ajax advancing following late goals by Nick Viergever and Amin Younes and reaching it first European semifinal since 1997.

In the end, United needed an extra-time victor from Marcus Rashford to seal the tie, but not before experiencing some nervy moments with the Belgians throwing the kitchen sink at them.

Vigo and Genk drew 1-1 but the Spaniards advanced 4-3.
