José Mourinho is taking no chances for Manchester United’s Europa League quarter-final second leg, and has named an attacking side to face Anderlecht. After being left out at the weekend, Zlatan Ibrahimović returns to spearhead the attack. Behind him is the also returning Henrikh Mkhitaryan, as well as the in-form Marcus Rashford and reasonably reliable Jesse Lingard.

Michael Carrick lines up in midfield next to Paul Pogba, as Ander Herrera drops to the bench. At the back, Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly, and Marcos Rojo are automatic choices, but Luke Shaw makes a welcome return to provide some more attacking verve from left-back. Sergio Romero continues his cup run in goal.

Off the bench, Wayne Rooney makes his long-awaited return to the squad, and Anthony Martial is recalled after being dropped altogether on Sunday.

Anderlecht have rung the changes from the first leg:
