Paul Pogba sent Manchester United through to the last eight of the Europa League on Thursday night after stepping off the bench to score the only goal as the Reds beat AC Milan 1-0 on the night and 2-1 on aggregate to progress. 

The Frenchman missed the first leg through injury but scored three minutes after his second-half introduction at the San Siro as Ole Gunnar’s men gave a tidy performance to make the quarter-finals. 

The Italians, despite having Zlatan Ibrahimovic back, could not find a way past the United defence, which played brilliantly through the 90 minutes.

At the Emirates, Arsenal were stunned by a Youssef El-Arabi goal, but qualified thanks to their 3-1 on the road, making it through 3-2 on aggregate. 

Their London neighbours, Tottenham, were not so lucky though as they suffered a shock 3-0 loss after extra time at the hands of Dinamo Zagreb. 

The Lillywhites led 2-0 from the opening leg played in London, but a stunning brace from Mislav Orsic forced the match into extra time, and he scored a stunning winner to send his side through after a tumultuous week. 

At Ibrox, Rangers’ stunning run came to an end after they lost 2-0 to Slavia Praha.

Steven Gerrard’s side needed to avoid defeat or a high-scoring draw to progress following their 1-1 draw away in Croatia in the first leg, but a goal in each half from Peter Olanyika and Nicolae Stanciu ended their journey. 

Second leg results

  • Dinamo Zagreb 3-0 Tottenham
  • Molde FK 2-1 Granada
  • Shakhtar Donetsk 1-2 Roma
  • Arsenal 0-1 Olympiacos
  • AC Milan 0-1 Man United
  • Young Boys 0-2 Ajax
  • Villareal 2-0 Dinamo Kyiv
  • Rangers 0-2 Slavia Praha
