Manchester United enter tonight’s Europa League quarter final second leg at Old Trafford against Anderlecht in a very strong position, and the Red Devils punters here in the Transfer Tavern are feeling optimistic.
Despite conceding a late equaliser in Belgium last week, United hold the upper hand with an away goal and home advantage in the reverse fixture.
Jose Mourinho will expect his side to dominate proceedings in Manchester this evening, and his midfield selection will determine how effectively United control the game.
After a masterclass at the weekend against league leaders Chelsea, the Portuguese manager may consider resting some of his star middle men ahead of Sunday’s must win game at Burnley.
United will be on a high from the weekend, which was by far the club’s best performance of the season.
Mourinho will look to press home the advantage they hold tonight, and continue the feel good factor surrounding the club.
Just like Burnley at the weekend, this is a game in which the Red Devils cannot afford any slip-ups.
This is knock out football, and Mourinho won’t rest on his laurels.
Our landlord here in the Tavern thinks this should be the Man Utd midfield that takes to the field at the Theatre of Dreams tonight….
