United beats Granada by 2-0 in 1st leg of Europa league Quarters.
Ole says he is impressed by performance but not still perfect night.

The Red Devils supervisor will be constrained into a reshuffle for the following week's second leg at Old Trafford 

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was satisfied with his side's Europa League triumph against Granada yet said it was "not an ideal evening" after three appointments precluded a threesome of players through suspension for the following week's quarter-last second leg. 

The Red Devils look very much set for a spot in the last four after objectives in every half from Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes got a 2-0 triumph against the Spanish side. 

Be that as it may, they will be without Harry Maguire, Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw for the following week's return game after they all got appointments. 

Solskjaer content with 'generally excellent outcome' 

Talking after the game to BT Sport, Solskjaer said: "It was anything but an ideal evening. We got three yellow cards and three suspensions. 2-0 is excellent outcome. We realize that it is so hard to come to Spain. We must play well to get an outcome." 

Solskjaer commended the effect of the two goalscorers, with Rashford's fine first-half strike from Victor Lindelof's raking cross-field pass taking his count to 20 in all rivalries. 

It was additionally his eighth objective in European rivalry this season, the primary English player to accomplish that accomplishment for the Red Devils since Sir Bobby Charlton in 1964-65. 

Fernandes in the interim scored a late punishment to move to 24 objectives for the season. The Portuguese has scored 19 of the 20 spot-kicks he has taken for the club in all rivalries this mission. 

"They [Rashford and Fernandes] have been extraordinary, so significant for us," added Solskjaer. 

"It was an awesome run by Rashford, takes the ball phenomenally. Bruno is so certain on punishments despite the fact that the manager nearly saved it." 

"We need to dominate each match. It's as yet a youthful group, a learning group. We need to improve constantly. Football gets you so rapidly in the event that you rest. We can't have some other methodology." 

Red Devils winger Dan James, who played the full an hour and a half Nuevo Estadio de Los Carmenes, disclosed to BT Sport: "It's a gigantic success for us. We realized it'd be extreme coming here. Getting a spotless sheet was significant. There's as yet a subsequent leg we must focus on however we need to recuperate and prepare for Sunday [in the Premier League away at Tottenham]. 

"We realized it would be an extreme game actually and we needed to coordinate with that. We battled as far as possible and got that punishment. 

"I'm truly glad. We need to go into one week from now with a similar disposition. Sunday is a monstrous game for us. We must get back, recuperate, prepare for that." 

The master plan 

The Europa League is Manchester United's just reasonable possibility of flatware this season with the club 14 focuses behind pioneers Manchester City in the Premier League and beaten by Leicester in the FA Cup quarter-last a month ago. 

They have not won a prize since the Europa League under Jose Mourinho almost four years prior and have not arrived at a last since Solskjaer succeeded the Portuguese in December 2018, losing at the semi-last stage in three cup rivalries last season. 

They look everything except sure of arriving at another semi-last after an expert execution in Spain on Thursday evening, notwithstanding the shortfall of Maguire, Shaw and McTominay for the following week's subsequent leg. 

Granada are contending in Europe without precedent for the club's set of experiences and started this opposition in the principal qualifying round, yet it would take a surprising outcome at Old Trafford one week from now for their fantasy rush to proceed.
