Manchester United vs. Anderlecht: Europa League Quarter-Final Second Leg – Match Preview

Manchester United host the Belgian side Anderlecht in the second leg of their Europa League Quarter-Final and are well placed to progress.

For long periods United controlled the first leg away from home and led deservedly through Henrik Mkhitaryan.

With time running out though the hosts levelled through a superb Leander Dendoncker header.

United produced arguably their best display of the season on the weekend as they eased past title favourites Chelsea.

Marcus Rashford’s opener was added to by a deflected Ander Herrera goal to keep United in the hunt for a top four finish.

Anderlecht remain top of the Belgian league after they edged past Oostende.

Team news
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Michael Carrick and Mkhitaryan are likely to return to the United XI here.

Sergio Romero has started all of United’s Europa League ties this term and is set to continue in goal.

Lukasz Teodorczyk was only fit enough to start on the bench in the first leg but should be recalled to the starting XI.

Andy Najar is the only other doubt for Anderlecht with a hamstring issue.

Manchester United (4-2-3-1): Romero; Valencia, Rojo, Bailly, Darmian; Herrera, Carrick; Mkhitaryan, Pogba, Rashford; Ibrahimovic
