Manchester United came from behind to defeat FC Midtjylland 5-1 in the second leg of the Europa League Round of 32 on Thursday night.
Following last week's shock 2-1 loss in Denmark, the Red Devils conceded the first goal of the return clash when Pione Sisto fired home for the visitors in the 27th minute at Old Trafford.
But Louis van Gaal's men fought back in emphatic style to progress to the Round of 16 with a 6-3 aggregate thanks to a brace from teenage debutant Marcus Rashford, and goals from Nikolay Bodurov (own-goal), Ander Herrera and Memphis Depay.
In the wake of the triumph, United players took to Twitter to celebrate in such a result which saw Rashford announce himself to the football world after being a late call-up for Anthony Martial who was injured in the warm-up.
Great night for the young lads! Main thing is we're into the next round #mufc
