Manchester United defeated Roma 6-2 in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final at Old Trafford, putting them one step closer to the Europa League final.

After Lorenzo Pellegrini’s penalty and Edin Dzeko’s score cancelled out Bruno Fernandes’ brilliant opener, the Red Devils appeared to be out of the competition.

After the break, they scored five unanswered goals thanks to Edinson Cavani’s brace, Fernandes’ second from the penalty spot, Paul Pogba’s header, and Mason Greenwood’s sixth.

Nicolas Pepe’s penalty gave Arsenal a Europa League lifeline after they were defeated 2-1 by Unai Emery’s Villarreal in the first leg of their semi-final in Spain.

Arsenal had a weak first half at Estadio de la Ceramica, with poor defending allowing Manuel Trigueros to hammer home from inside the box (5), before an unmarked striker equalised. Following a corner, Raul Albiol doubled Villarreal’s lead from close range (29).
