The Reds came from behind and scored five second-half goals to put ourselves in a commanding position in the Europa League semi-finals.
Bruno Fernandes had put United in front early on, chipping the keeper after a wonderful move involving the jinking Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani. When the ball struck Pogba’s hand inside the box, Roma had the chance to equalise. Lorenzo Pellegrini made no mistake from the spot and Edin Dzeko tapped home a second for the visitors before the break.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted post-match that he shared some stern words with his players. It did the trick. Cavani got United back level after 48 minutes, scored another after 64 minutes and further goals came from Bruno, Pogba and Mason Greenwood, who came off the bench to find the net for the fifth time in April.
