Manchester United's miserable season took another turn for the worse on Thursday when Louis van Gaal's side lost 2-1 to Danish minnows FC Midtjylland in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie.

After another disappointing domestic campaign, the Europa League has emerged as the Red Devils' only chance of securing Champions League football for next season.

However, a first leg defeat, coupled with an injury to star man David de Gea, leaves United's season in disarray.

While the victory sparked wild celebrations in Denmark, there was little sympathy on Twitter for Manchester United and Van Gaal.
