Goodbye!

Louis van Gaal wanted his players to be "horny" tonight. I think they played in the mood that he wanted them to.

On that note, we're going to scarper into the night. Make sure you return here tomorrow for live coverage of the last-16 draw about 12:00 GMT. See you then!

Elsewhere in Europe

Four Spanish teams are in the last 16 of the Europa League as Athletic Bilbao, Sevilla, Valencia and Villarreal made it though with respective wins over Marseille, Molde, Rapid Vienna and Napoli.

Lazio will be Italy's sole representative having overcome Galatasaray, while German teams Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund progressed past Sporting and FC Porto respectively.

Fenerbahce, Shakhtar Donetsk, Sparta Prague and Basel also made it through tonight, while Braga progressed yesterday.

So they all go into Friday's draw for the last 16 in which there will be no seeding or restrictions on facing sides from your own country. Liverpool v Man Utd anyone?

So we know it has been a successful night for England's Europa League trio. Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool are all in Uefa's glass bowl for tomorrow's last 16 draw.

But who will join them? Here's the list of the teams who are through....

Tottenham 3-0 Fiorentina (agg 4-1)

Solid performance! On to the next one! #COYS #EuropaLeague

Man Utd 5-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 6-3)

Teenage Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford's debut was "unbelievable", says manager Louis van Gaal.

"In the first half he ran too much at the sidelines," Van Gaal tells BT Sport. "I said to him at half-time to be in the width of the goal and you shall score. Then he scored two goals - it is fantastic for him."

'Fans will have enjoyed attacking football'

Man Utd 5-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 6-3)

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal: "It was a great performance. The fans will have enjoyed our attacking football. 

"Midjtylland had only crossed the halfway line once and they scored. Normally you get a decline in confidence, but we continued our game.

"We missed a penalty, it was unbelievable but we kept going. i must give compliments to my players."

We showed character - Pochettino

Tottenham 3-0 Fiorentina (agg 4-1)

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino speaking to BT Sport: "I'm happy for the effort. The players were fantastic and now we need to recover our energy for Sunday's match against Swansea.

"We showed character and played very well. 

"For me it wasn't a yellow card [for Dele Alli]. He was calm against Crystal Palace and today and it was another good performance from him and the team."

'Great night for Rashford'

Man Utd 5-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 6-3)

Manchester United defender Daley Blind is left speechless by Marcus Rashford's display - literally.

The Dutch international comically trips over his words in his post-match interview on BT Sport when he tries to describe the teenage debutant's performance.

"It's a great night for him and all the other youngsters in the squad," he eventually splutters.

"It's great to see them playing well. And I'm really pleased for Memphis too - he was brilliant."

Shohidur Rahman: We have to remember it's only Shrewsbury and Midtjylland. The biggest test is on Sunday with a very young inexperienced team.

Stephen Collins: Bring in eager youngsters like Riley & Rashford, and things happen. Not a coincidence. Can't win anything (without) kids.

Steven Taylor: People will say it was only Midtjyland. But look at the team we fielded. Pretty much U21 with an average age of 24.

Spurs were more mature - Lloris

Tottenham 3-0 Fiorentina (agg 4-1)

Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris speaking to BT Sport: "We completely deserved this win. We did a good job last week. If we compare with last season, we are more mature with the ball. We were very clinical and that's why I think we go through.

"We showed again today great character and mentality in the team and we need to take it on game-by-game and, hopefully, we will be rewarded at the end of the season."

'We created a lot of chances'

Man Utd 5-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 6-3)

Manchester United defender Daley Blind, speaking to BT Sport: "The first half we played well, they created one chance and scored one goal. 

"We played quick and created a lot of chances in the first half, then in the second half we played even better and scored the goals."

This is a massive night for English football considering the coefficient status against the Italians! #bbcfootball

'Important we took chances'

Tottenham 3-0 Fiorentina (agg 4-1)

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli, speaking to BT Sport: "We knew they weren't going to make it easy. We said before the game we said it was important we took our chances."

Alli on picking up a booking which rules him out of the first leg of Europa League last 16 tie:  "It's disappointing, you want to play as much as you can but we have great depth."  

Man Utd 5-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 6-3)

Simon Stone

BBC Sport at Old Trafford

"What a fantastic night for Manchester United and Louis van Gaal.

"They did have the character to make light of Anthony Martial's loss and Juan Mata's missed penalty.

"In Marcus Rashford, they had an 18-year-old to hog the headlines. In Memphis Depay they had the game's stand-out performer.

"Booed off in Denmark a week ago, fans stayed to cheer them down the tunnel tonight.

"What is there for them to complain about the first five-goal haul of Van Gaal's entire reign."

Man Utd 5-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 6-3)

At the risk of sounding like a killjoy...dare I say the words 'Federico' and 'Macheda'?

lfcway: Spurs look solid. Could go far in this competition.

Robert James Parfett:  Memphis man of the match. If only he can maintain that sort of performance. What a fairytale debut from Rashford. Great stuff!

Man Utd 5-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 6-3)

Kevin Kilbane

Ex-Everton and Republic of Ireland winger at Old Trafford

"Manchester United deserved to go through - they were the better team.

"Marcus Rashford can take a lot of credit from the way that he played, the basic things that he did."  

Man Utd 5-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 6-3)

Of course, the star of the show was Marcus Rashford. Marcus WHO?

Marcus Rashford. The 18-year-old forward only started because of an injury to Anthony Martial, but ended up bagging a brace on his senior debut.

The local lad wanders down the Old Trafford touchline, kisses his badge and then breaks into a broad grin. Not even Larry will be as happy as him tonight.

FULL-TIME

Man Utd 5-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 6-3)

All over! It was far from plain sailing, but Manchester United's class finally told against the Danish champions. 

Now they join Liverpool, Tottenham and Gary Neville's Valencia in tomorrow's last 16 draw.

Five goals, a missed penalty, twice hitting the woodwork, plenty more chances....that enough entertainment for you Manchester United fans?

INJURY TIME

Man Utd 5-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 6-3)

Well into three minutes of injury-time now - and Manchester United still want more. Andreas Pereira fancies getting his name on the scoresheet too, but his shot fails to trouble the Midtjylland keeper.

SUBSTITUTION

Man Utd 5-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 6-3)

Another significant substitution to tell you about - with 17-year-old Regan Poole coming on to make his debut, replacing Ander Herrera.

GOAL - Man Utd 5-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 6-3)

Memphis Depay (90 mins)

Blow the whistle, pack up the coach. It is all over. Memphis Depay seals an impressive individual performance by blasting in Manchester United's fifth goal.

Andre Romer sees red for picking up a second booking.

"That was a penalty - the hand was in an unnatural position and gaining an advantage. The referee made a great decision."

GOAL - Man Utd 4-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 5-3)

Ander Herrera (87 mins)

Not Juan Mata, not Marcus Rashford, but Ander Herrera. The United midfielder confidently converts the penalty - and that should see Manchester United into the last 16.

PENALTY TO MAN UTD

Man Utd 3-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 4-3)

The end is nigh. (As long as Juan Mata doesn't take the penalty.)

Memphis Depay's bending shot is palmed away by the outstretched arm of Kian Hansen,

Handball. Penalty.

Marcus Rashford to take it for his hat-trick?

Man Utd 3-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 4-3)

Another change for Manchester United, more to run down the clock than anything else I'd imagine. Off goes Jesse Lingard, on comes Andreas Pereira.

Man Utd 3-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 4-3)

One more Manchester United goal and it is goodbye Midjtylland. Juan Mata peels off to the left channel, looking up to see Jesse Lingard lurking. But the Spain midfielder cannot find his team-mate, allowing Midjtylland to nervously lump the ball clear. 

Six minutes to go....

SUBSTITUTION

Tottenham 3-0 Fiorentina (agg 4-1)

Dele Alli - ruled out of the last-16 first leg after picking up a booking - departs to a standing ovation. Nabil Bentaleb is on in his place for the final five minutes.

'All about emotions'

Man Utd 3-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 4-3)

Simon Stone

BBC Sport at Old Trafford

"See what I mean about emotions.

"From trawling the record books for most embarrassing Man Utd defeats in Europe, this is now set up to be a great European night.

"There are no trophies at stake - and seven games would still need to be played to win the tournament.

"But on a night when that pesky Law of Murphy has made another appearance, an 18-year-old is on the verge of becoming a hero."

SUBSTITUTION

Man Utd 3-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 4-3)

In the aftermath of that Manchester United goal, I forgot to tell you that the home side made a sub. Young left-back Joe Riley, who has enjoyed a steady full debut without hitting the heights of team-mate Marcus Rashford, is replaced by Marcos Rojo. This is the Argentina defender's first appearance since the 0-0 draw at PSV Eindhoven back in late November.

Shane Daly: Say what you want about LVG, he is giving our young players a chance. Thank you Louis.

Dennis Hobson: Goal!!!!! Local boy to local hero.

Sophie Gayter: Two goals on his debut for Rashford and Memphis playing with freedom? Not to worry LVG will stamp that out of them real quick.

'What a debut'

Man Utd 3-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 4-3)

Kevin Kilbane

Ex-Everton and Republic of Ireland winger at Old Trafford

"What a debut that is. Rashford might have sat on the bench all night had Martial not been injured in the warm-up.

"He has not looked out of place tonight. Everything he has done has been positive, his running and his touches on the ball.

"You get the feeling his team-mates want him to go on and core a hat-trick."

Man Utd 3-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 4-3)

So Manchester United are now hurtling towards the last 16. But before you Red Devils fans get too excited, here's a word of warning. One more Midjtylland goal in the final 11 minutes will see them through on away goals. Stranger things have happened...

GOAL Tottenham 3-0 Fiorentina (agg 4-1)

Gonzalo Rodriguez (OG)

Fiorentina skipper Gonzalo Rodriguez slaps the turf in frustration. It has been that sort of night for the visitors.

With Dele Alli lurking, the captain has to stick out a foot to try and cut out Kieran Trippier's cross into the corridor of uncertainty.

The ball flies off his toe and bullets into the roof of the net for Tottenham's third and the icing on the cake.

YELLOW CARD

Tottenham 2-0 Fiorentina (agg 3-1)

Dele Alli get clattered by Gonzalo Rodriguez. It is a cynical body check and should be a regulation free-kick for the hosts.

Instead the referee decides Alli has made a meal of it and makes an example of the Spurs man, issuing yellow.

That was plain wrong. And Alli will miss the first leg of the last-16 tie, presuming Spurs get there.

Ten to go.

SUBSTITUTION

Tottenham 2-0 Fiorentina (agg 3-1)

Tottenham have cruise control engaged and their feet up on the dashboard.

The fight has gone out of the Fiorentina side.

And Erik Lamela has gone out of the Tottenham side. Joshua Onomah is on in his place.

GOAL - Man Utd 3-1 FC Midjtylland (agg 4-3)

Marcus Rashford (75 mins)

Finally! Manchester United lead this tie for the first time since the first half of last week's first leg - and guess who it is?! Yep, Marcus Rashford

Chances are that you'd never heard of this 18-year-old lad Mancunian a few hours ago, now he is going to be splattered over your morning newspaper.

The United debutant calmly strokes in from 12 yards after begin picked out by Guillermo Varela's sweet cross from the right.
