The Reds travel to Belgium for the first leg of the Europa League quarter-final

Manchester United take on Anderlecht today at the wonderfully named Constant Vanden Stock Stadium, hoping to secure a win and get themselves on track to progress to the Europa League semi-finals. With the second leg sandwiched between tough Premier League match-ups, it’s important that Mourinho’s men not make life difficult for themselves by losing in Belgium.

Champions-elect Chelsea await United in the league on Sunday, but even with the incompetence of the other top teams leaving a top-four finish within United’s grasp, it’s unlikely that Mourinho does too much messing about with rotation today. A Europa League win is still a more likely route to Champions League qualification, and - let’s shout it all together now - Top Four Is Not A Trophy.

Wayne Rooney is out with some kind of ankle bother, and did not travel. Ashley Young is not fit enough to rejoin the fray, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling are still out with whatever injuries they always have, and Juan Mata is yet to recover from his groin surgery. In better news, David de Gea and Antonio Valencia have both traveled.
