It was the only shot United had in the first half, but with them 3-0 up on aggregate the tie was effectively over bar a miracle.

Granada created a host of chances but were unable to get back into the tie.

United finished the tie off when they scored again in the 90th minute, moments after De Gea had made a brilliant point blank save to deny Herrera.

The hosts broke away and Alex Telles crossed towards Juan Mata but Jesus Vallejo directed the ball into his own net.

Proper Striker

Speaking after the game to BT Sport, Bruno Fernandes said, United did well and sung the praises of Edinson Cavani.

“It was a good game. The Europa League is always difficult to play. It doesn’t matter who you play against.” 

“We know Granada have quality- they can create something. We did well. We controlled the game and had a lot of the ball. We kept the ball moving. The results show that. Now is the time for the next step and win a semi-final. Before then it’s time to focus on the league. 

“He Cavani, is a a proper striker, a proper number nine.”

On facing Roma in the semis he continued, “Every team will give you problems. They have a good organisation defensively, they can create problems offensively. Some of their players have played in England. We know what we have to do. If we do the right things, we will have our chances to win the game.” 

“He’s a proper striker. A proper No.9.”
