“We look at those chances and normally we put those away,” he said.

“But he’s [Rashford] there to be on the end of them and that’s important, but it was definitely a good reaction from Wednesday night.

“We got enough players that are used to each other anyway.

“There was a period of ten or 15 minutes when they had too many shots for my liking, a free kick that hit the crossbar.

“The other bits I thought David [De Gea] was in control.

“It was a little bit too passive definitely but the two chances we created should have been enough.”
