Guidetti: We can come back against Man United and reach Stockholm final

Paul Pogba has been suffering with muscle fatigue

Tonight they were not superior, we were close and it's not impossible (for us to progress).

Mourinho also told United's official website in team news that David de Gea could play in the Europa League final should United reach it despite Sergio Romero being the regular No1 in the tournament so far.

Jose Mourinho has confirmed his plans for this weekend's game against Arsenal after the 1-0 victory in the Europa League against Celta Vigo. But it remains to be seen whether all of them would get to play on Thursday.

Rashford, who netted an extra-time victor against Anderlecht in the quarterfinals, drove a right-foot strike over the wall and into the far left corner in the 67th minute, securing United the advantage going into the second leg in Manchester next week.

Mourinho hailed Rashford's free-kick and confirmed that the England striker puts in a lot of effort on his dead ball skills.

The first major European semi-final in the Spanish club's history began with a 1-0 first-leg defeat thanks to Marcus Rashford's splendid free-kick. I think it helped put the goalkeeper off, because he took a step to his left and that opened up the space for Marcus to score.

Mourinho, however, said that although he was happy with his side's performance against Celta Vigo, he does not feel the same way about the result.

Alvarez then thwarted Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Jesse Lingard in one-on-one situations in quick succession before the break as United midfielder Paul Pogba's influence began to grow. "We want to go on and win the competition. I think having that pace can be important".

Mourinho said: 'The players that are in accumulation, the players that are with lots of minutes because we played nine matches in April and this one, so 10 matches in four-and-a-half weeks.

With the Jose Mourinho's side outside the Premier League's top four, the Europa League perhaps represents their best chance of earning a place in next season's Champions League.
