Manchester United will be vying for a place in the Europa League semi-final tomorrow night, when they host Belgian side Anderlecht. The tie is finely poised at 1-1 from the first leg and the Old Trafford crowd will be praying for a positive result.
The game itself won’t be easy, and the first leg definitely showed that Anderlecht are good enough to cause an upset if we aren’t at our best and not taking our chances.
Today, Manchester United’s official Twitter feed posted a few training photos from today, ahead of the eagerly anticipated clash. Included are the likes of Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Eric Bailly, Marcos Rojo and man of the moment Ander Herrera.
All of the guys will be looking to impress the boss in order to earn their place in the starting line-up for what is possibly our biggest game of the season. In my opinion, I think we’ll see all of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Michael Carrick start, as they were all rested over the weekend.
Have a look at the photos here:

An early goal could well be key in this one. It’d certainly calm the nerves at the very least, and the longer we go without putting the ball in the back of the net, the more confidence our opponents will have.
