Probable Man United line-up vs Anderlecht, and latest team news

By Susan

The confidence is high and the atmosphere is right after the 2-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday but focus must now shift to Europe as we welcome Anderlecht at Old Trafford in the second leg of the Europa League quarter-final.

We kept the hope of finishing in the Premier League quartet alive with the win on Sunday but have a more crucial match against the Belgian side on Thursday as we continue to push towards Champions League qualification via the two options available.

The first leg ended in a disappointing 1-1 draw in Brussels despite the host playing second fiddle to us in the match. Henrikh Mkhitaryan had given us the lead but we failed to put the game to bed, missing a number of chances before Leander Dendockr got the equalizer in the 87th minutes. The only consolation from that match is the away goal.

However, we boast of a better home record in Europe this season as we have won all our Europa League games at Old Trafford this season, and we have won the last four games at home against Anderlecht.


Jose Mourinho may be faced with selection dilemma after the performance put up by the team he fielded against Chelsea and may be tempted to feature the same team with the only difference possibly being Sergio Romero replacing De Gea in between the sticks.

That notwithstanding the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, HenrikhMkhitaryan, Michael Carrick who were rested on Sunday are all expected to return to the starting line-up.  Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Juan Mata remained sidelined while Wayne Rooney is available and may play some parts.

Probable Line-Up  (4-2-3-1)

Sergio Romero; Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly, Marcos Rojo, Matteo Darmian; Michael Carrick, Ander Herrera; Jesse Lingard, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Marcus Rashford; Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

A win will put us just three matches away from lifting the trophy.
