Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini admits they wasted opportunities after his injury-time goal secured them a 1-0 win over BSC Young Boys

The Red Devils were unable to take advantage of several scoring chances with Marcus Rashford wasting a great opportunity in the second-half.

United’s lack creativity in front of goal got the home fans frustrated at Old Trafford with Fellaini himself missing a sitter earlier in the game.

But the Belgian made amends by striking a late winner to book United a last-16 spot and avoid a third straight blank at home in Europe for the first time in their history.

“I think it’s always good to win,” Fellaini told UEFA.com.

“We created a lot of chances and we should have scored more before, but that’s football, but the most important thing is the win.

“We played positive football, we ran and we played forward and I think that’s the most important thing.”

Midfielder Jesse Lingard added: “We could have been three or four up at half-time.

“We’re obviously happy to have scored at the end, but with the chances we had it should have been a lot more comfortable.

“We’re pleased to have reached the next round. Now we’ll just keep doing what we’re doing and continue trying to win games.”

United will next face Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday.
