Marcus Rashford has scored five Europa League goals this season

Manchester United took control of their final Europa League Round of 16 tie against Real Betis with a landslide first-leg victory at Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford’s early strike put the hosts ahead and, while Ayoze Perez equalized for Betis, Erik ten Hag’s side created several excellent chances and were worthy winners.

Antony looped in a superb second to put United back in front, before Bruno Fernandes slotted home into Luke Shaw’s corner past the Stretford End to extend their lead.

Wout Weghorst’s late goal highlighted a performance that proved to be the perfect answer to Sunday’s humiliating 7-0 loss at Anfield to Liverpool in the Premier League.

United travel to Sevilla for the second leg on Thursday, March 16 (17:45 GMT).
