Ex-United star gives his thoughts
BT Sport pundit Michael Owen believes that Manchester United will manage to make the Europa League semi-finals at the expense of Anderlecht.
United could only manage a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Belgium on Thursday, but having the away goal gives them an advantage ahead of the return leg at Old Trafford this week.
Speaking on BT Sport after Thursday’s game, Owen said: “It’s a good result, going back to Old Trafford with an away goal… you’ve got to fancy them strongly now [to reach the semi-finals].”
Before the return leg, Manchester United must turn their attentions back to Premier League affairs and their crunch clash against Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday.
The Red Devils head into this weekend’s round of fixture in fifth place in the Premier League table, while Chelsea are seven points clear at the top.
