At Old Trafford Man United is ready for a final. Mourinho has already convinced players that winning the Europa League is within reach, which would give them a trophy and automatic participation in the Champions League. The Anderlecht draw, four minutes into the nineties, was a bucket of cold water, but meanwhile, the Red Devils warmed up with a triumph over Chelsea. Maximum concentration is required to stamp the pass to the semi-final.
Manchester United – Anderlecht : WHAT TO EXPECT?
Manchester United did perhaps their most successful showing of the season last Sunday. In the third attempt, Jose Mourinho managed to beat the former team and create serious difficulties for Chelsea in the race for the title of England. The triumph also consolidated United’s position in the top-4 approach, which the Portuguese coach continues to say is a goal he will not abdicate.
With Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the bench, the kid Marcus Rashford was released alone in the most advanced position and took full responsibility. Until his replacement, exhausted in the last ten minutes of the match, the young Englishman explored all the opportunities he had to appear in the blind spot of the Chelsea central, who did not have the speed to accompany him. It was his first goal after seven minutes. Ander Herrera was another giant in the match. The Spaniard was the shadow of Eden Hazard and never allowed the Belgian to catch the ball and the game of the Blues. It was also his pass to Rashford’s goal and United’s second goal, then opening the second half. But if these two players stood out the praise has to go to the collective since United showed a claw and ambition that we rarely saw throughout the season, as well as great discipline to fulfill the game plan to the letter.
Anderlecht were the only team involved in the Europa League quarter-finals that did not win the home game. But considering you’ve been losing up to four minutes from the end, you might consider it a lesser evil. Leander Dendoncker’s strike ended Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s advantage late in the first half and left the Belgian club with one foot on the play-off. The task will not be easy but it is workable.
United dominated the first leg, especially the first forty-five minutes. Just retrieve the statistics of possession – sixty to forty for the English – or remember that Romero did not make a single defense throughout the encounter. Anderlecht shot a close-range with the goal, which gives it a hundred percent effectiveness. The added difficulty for the formation trained by René Weiler is that it will have to go to Old Trafford to score, you can not stay for a void. And for that to happen, you will need United’s collaboration. Because if the formation of Mourinho does not dispossess or lose concentration this will not happen.
