Don't Doubt We Can Beat Manchester United - Celta Vigo Star Issues Warning

Last week's 1-0 win in Spain puts Jose Mourinho's men in the driving seat heading into the second leg of their semi-final against Celta Vigo at Old Trafford.

The decision looks set to pay off after collecting a 1-0 away win in the first leg against Celta before their loss at Arsenal, though Mourinho says that his tactics were "common sense" after injuries to the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw forced his hand as the likes of Wayne Rooney and debutant Axel Tuanzebe played at the Emirates.

"The situation is simple; 17 matches in seven weeks with 16 players is impossible", Mourinho said. "It's not a gamble, it was a simple decision, a decision based on common sense and a effect of our situation". Seventeen matches with 16 players is completely impossible.

"It was not a gamble, just a outcome of our situation".

"We are going to prove tomorrow what we've been for the whole season which is to fight hard in match No 14 in the Europa League in order to reach the final".

The trio were out since the start of April and had missed United's last seven games in the Premier League.

The 35-year-old, who will see his United contract expire this summer, said: "I'm personally desperate to get to the final and to try and win it".

"For Celta, in their words it's the most important match of their history". "My feelings, it's also the most important match of our history".

Rooney committed his future to United in February amid interest from Chinese clubs, while Everton manager Ronald Koeman has also stated he would be keen to sign the England worldwide. "I don't think it's consistent, the atmosphere, the enthusiasm", he said.

Rooney spoke of his desire to win the competition on the eve of the semi-final second leg against Celta Vigo.

"Apart from them, if I'm not wrong, no one did it before so it will be very important for the club, very important for the players".

"We have two titles – the Community Shield and League Cup – and we can have a very good season if we fight for the Europa League. We have just to focus on where we are and nobody has more motivation than I have to try and win tomorrow". "Against Anderlecht it was not warm enough". Mourinho was dipping into his reserves to make up numbers in the first-team squad but Smalling, Mata and Jones' return will come as a welcome boost for the remainder of the campaign.
