Draw likely in Belgium
Manchester United take on Anderlecht in the Europa League quarter-finals on Thursday and the first-leg encounter could be tight.
With the Red Devils not in this season's Champions League, the big question was always how seriously would they take the second-tier competition?

A march to the last eight suggests Jose Mourinho wants to lift the trophy and they are now favourites to do so but must negotiate a tricky tie with the Belgians.

The first leg takes place at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium and Mourinho will want to make sure that his men return to Old Trafford still in the game and with every chance of getting the job done on home soil.

With that in mind, it would be no surprise if he fielded a solid-looking starting XV with the intention of keeping things tight and trying to wear down the opposition.

United are currently on a 21-game unbeaten run in the Premier League - a sequence that has been built around the 'Mourinho way' of keeping things tight at the back - but 10 of those games have been drawn.

United seem capable of controlling opposition teams and they should have no trouble doing the same against the Purple and White.

Anderlecht finished top of the Belgian First Division A and are favourites to progress to next season's Champions League group stage from the ongoing Belgium Championship play-offs.

They will be no pushovers and can be backed at n/a to take a first-leg lead to the Theatre of Dreams.

United are on offer at n/a but, while quite capable of winning the match, they have not been prolific in front of goal this term.

They will again be without Wayne Rooney as the England man continues to struggle with what has been termed 'pain in both ankles'.

Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia have returned to training ahead of the trip but defensive pairing Phil Jones and Chris Smalling have been ruled out.

Valencia has missed the last two games due to injury and, with Young also injured, Mourinho has been forced to rely on Luke Shaw at left-back.

It seems as though the Portuguese tactician does not trust the former Southampton man and it remains to be seen if he plays on Thursday night.

Mourinho has already opened his United account with victory in the EFL Cup and a solid display in Belgium will enhance his chances of adding to the silverware collection on May 24 in Sweden.
