Europa League: Ashley Young's Manchester United all set to attack Anderlecht

21 April 2017

"We have felt that kind of performance coming", said the versatile England worldwide, United's captain against Chelsea. The same way I know what the players like, the players also know what I like.

"We have belief in ourselves". The same way I know the players much better now, the players should also know me much better now.

Manchester United's bid to secure Champions League qualification via the league was given a massive boost following their recent win against Chelsea, but as we've frequently seen this season, Mourinho's men have struggled to put together a run of consistent wins together.

Captain and midfield maestro, Youri Tielemans has been touted as a future superstar and will be a key player should the Belgians progress to the semi-finals.

Mourinho's side are now fifth in the Premier League on 60 points, four behind Manchester City but with a game in hand.

Mourinho does not seem to be thrilled with Anthony Martial this season, as he has only scored three goals all year in league play. He then played an hour in the 3-0 win over Sunderland and Mourinho praised him with a "solid" performance.

Rashford might have to step up as United's chief striker for the last month of the season after Ibrahimovic hobbled off after hyperextending his right knee on landing, having chested down a long ball into the area. "At the same time, Anderlecht know that if they don't score, they're out".

The trip to United does not, rather surprisingly, appear to be Anderlecht's main goal.

"We know we are playing a very high level team in Manchester United".

"We lost players in the January market, we didn't bring in anyone, we lost players in worldwide week, so we need everyone that can and Wayne can. He can help us".

United carries a slight advantage into the home leg of the quarterfinal, after scoring an away goal in the 1-1 draw seven days ago at Constant Vanden Stock stadium.

Anthony Martial was sent on to replace Zlatan and the fight to finish in the Premier League's top four just got a lot harder without the club's leading scorer.

Speaking before the incidents in Bastia, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas expressed serious reservations about the return leg against Besiktas.

He said: 'We have been together for nearly ten months. It's about getting to know each other better and better and better and going in the direction of things we like.

Lyon completed the last-four lineup by beating Besiktas 7-6 in a penalty shootout.
