Jose Mourinho hits out at his players after Saint-Etienne win

Loic Perrin celebrates after scoring for Saint Etienne during a French league match against Lorient

Not for the first time, AS Saint-Etienne were left cursing Zlatan Ibrahimovic as his hat-trick gave Manchester United a 3-0 win in their Europa League round of 32 first-leg clash on Thursday.

Ibrahimovic's hat-trick was the 17th in his career and also took him to 17 career goals against the French club.

Manchester United are now favored to win the game due to them being at home and also winning their previous game against Watford 2-0, but Saint-Etienne could pull something out of the bag and beat the Red Devils.

Marcus Rashford made his 50th Manchester United appearance in the Europa League Round of 32 win over Saint-Etienne, nearly a year after making his debut at the same stage of the competition. But that won't matter to United, who turned back the challenge of a plucky Saint-Etienne side to take firm control of this two-leg affair. This is the decisive moment for the season and the second half of the season is the one which decides what will happen.

He added: "It feels good". It's important to keep getting the wins we need. He's now scored 23 goals in all competitions, while his treble on the night saw his career tally of goals exclusively against Saint-Etienne increase to 17. It's the third time he's scored three goals in a match against them, and the Swede acknowledged they're one of his favourites sides.

"In the end, we head home having lost 3-0, with two big errors of judgement by the referee". [It was] too noisy, too amusing, too relaxed. "It can be nasty with you, I don't want my tem to be punished so I will go with a strong team". "I have scored a couple of goals tonight and hopefully I can do the same next week".

"But this is a season of growing up, being stable, strong, physically strong, mentally strong, tactically strong, he is playing in nearly every match, sometimes starting and coming from the bench".

"We don't play Champions League, so if that is the case I would prefer to play in the Europa League than be at home watching TV. The tie is not over but it is a good result".
