Re: [UEL] Anderlecht vs Manchester United


Jose Mourinho could welcome back two first-team stars for Manchester United's crucial Europa League quarter-final first leg against Anderlecht.

Goalkeeper David De Gea missed Sunday's 3-0 victory at Sunderland with a hip problem and right-back Antonio Valencia has been absent for the last two games after also sitting out Tuesday's draw with Everton.

Speaking to MUTV after the win at the Stadium of Light, Mourinho says he expects Valencia to be ready for Thursday's European test in Brussels.

“We played with the players available [against Sunderland]," he said. "Not one single player stayed in Manchester because we were thinking about resting them, or because we were thinking about rotation or about Anderlecht. Not at all.

“These are the players available at the moment and, when I look to the others, I just expect Valencia to be ready to play and no more, I don't think. I don't think any one of the other boys will be ready to play.”

Mourinho was without six players on Sunday, as De Gea joined Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Ashley Young, Juan Mata and captain Wayne Rooney in missing the Sunderland clash. The boss later gave a more detailed update on the Spanish stopper, however, after he was replaced by Sergio Romero for the match.

Romero - who impressed again in the absence of De Gea - has been a regular in the Europa League this season. And while Mourinho admits that De Gea's injury is "not serious", he suggested that the Argentinian could retain his place against Anderlecht.

“De Gea's injury is not serious and Romero every time he plays he plays so well," he added. “The fans are used to having Romero in goal in the competition [the Europa League] - that becomes the most important competition for us after winning the League Cup.

“The Europa League is the competition we can still win, so when Sergio plays in the Europa League and when we are giving him this confidence to play, it’s because we know that his answer is positive and today he looked like he was really comfortable.”

The Reds will fly out to Belgium on Wednesday, when Mourinho could provide a further update on his squad in his pre-match press conference. As always, our reporters will also be there to provide live updates of his media briefing, as well as build-up to the game.

Re: [UEL] Anderlecht vs Manchester United
Manchester United back-up Sergio Romero gets the nod ahead of David De Gea for Anderlecht clash

* Manchester United No1 David De Gea has been struggling for form and fitness
* De Gea's displays since the international break haven't impressed Jose Mourinho
* Back-up Sergio Romero has been the Europa League keeper up to this point
* After a clean sheet deputising for De Gea at Sunderland Romero keeps his spot

Sergio Romero will play in goal for Manchester United against Anderlecht on Thursday night amid concerns over the form and fitness of David De Gea.

De Gea missed United's 3-0 win at Sunderland on Sunday a minor hip injury that makes him a doubt for the Europa League quarter-final first-leg tie in Belgium.

Mourinho has been unhappy with De Gea's performances since the goalkeeper returned from international duty last month.

The Spaniard almost gifted West Brom a goal when he spilled Darren Fletcher's hopeful effort against the bar, and was then criticised for not being more assertive when Phil Jagielka scored from close range for Everton last week.

Sergio Romero will play in goal for Manchester United against Anderlecht on Thursday night. Romero took over in goal at the Stadium of Light and impressed as he kept a clean sheet. Jose Mourinho is happy for Romero to play his eighth game in 11 European ties this season

Romero took over in goal at the Stadium of Light and impressed as he kept a clean sheet.

Mourinho is happy for the Argentine to make his eighth appearance in 11 European ties this season against Anderlecht in a competition that now represents United's best chance of qualifying for the Champions League.

'De Gea's injury is not serious,' said the United boss. 'It's a little injury, not a big problem. 'When he dives to one side he feels it, a little muscular thing in his hip area. And every time Romero plays, he plays so well.

David De Gea missed United's win at Sunderland with a hip injury and has been off colour

'The fans are used to having Romero in goal in the competition. He looked like he was really comfortable (against Sunderland).'

Antonio Valencia is also expected to travel to Brussels tomorrow after missing the last two games.

Meanwhile, United are set to sell Adnan Januzaj this summer. Januzaj has one year left on contract and Mourinho hinted last week that he has already decided the 22-year-old's future. The Belgian may move abroad after struggling to make an impression while on loan at Sunderland.

Re: [UEL] Anderlecht vs Manchester United


So, Stockholm's in sight... Yes, Manchester United return to continental action on Thursday, as the Reds travel to the Belgian capital of Brussels to take on Anderlecht in the Europa League. This quarter-final, first-leg clash at Constant Vanden Stock Stadium represents a first meeting between the sides in almost 17 years and could prove crucial ahead of the return leg at Old Trafford next week. With next month's final in Sweden now within touching distance, United will be keen to build an advantage here.

When and where can I watch it? The match, which kicks off at 20:05 BST, will be screened live on BT Sport 2 in the UK. Fans can also follow the action with ManUtd.com's live match blog and via the club’s Twitter account, @ManUtd, while MUTV subscribers can tune in to Match Day Live at 19:00 BST for build-up to the game and then live radio commentary, before watching the full 90 minutes from midnight.

What's the early team news? Speaking to MUTV after Sunday's win over Sunderland, Jose Mourinho said he expects Antonio Valencia to be available for selection after the Ecuadorian sat out United's last two games. Valencia was one of seven first-team absentees at the Stadium of Light, alongside David De Gea, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Ashley Young, Juan Mata and captain Wayne Rooney. The boss later explained that while De Gea's hip problem is "not serious", Sergio Romero may retain his place after keeping his ninth clean sheet of the season at the weekend. Mourinho could provide a further injury update during his pre-match press conference on Wednesday, when the squad is set to fly out to Belgium.

How did we get here? Having been denied Champions League qualification by United's Round of 16 opponents FC Rostov, who beat them in the qualifying round, Anderlecht then finished second in Europa League Group C, behind Saint-Etienne, who we beat at the Round of 32 stage. In the first knockout round, Rene Weiler's men saw off Zenit St. Petersburg on away goals, before setting up Thursday's tie with a 2-0 aggregate victory over Cypriot side Apoel Nicosia. United also finished second at the group stage, before beating Saint-Etienne 4-0 on aggregate and getting past Rostov last month. Mourinho's side head into the match buoyed by the 3-0 victory at the Stadium of Light, a result which extended the Reds' unbeaten run in the Premier League to 21 games, while Anderlecht were held to a goalless draw at home to Gent on their most recent domestic outing.

We've met before, right? Yes. And though we've only come up against Anderlecht on six previous occasions, there have been some significant games between the teams. The Belgian side were our first-ever European opponents when United travelled to Brussels in September 1956, but it was the reverse fixture a fortnight later which will live long in the memory. In a game played at Manchester City's Maine Road (due to the absence of floodlights at Old Trafford), the Reds ran out 10-0 winners, with four goals coming from striker Dennis Viollet. After the victory - which remains the biggest in United's history - manager Matt Busby hailed the performance as "the finest exhibition of teamwork I had ever seen from any side either at club or international level". Our most recent encounter came during the Champions League group stages in 2000/01, when a hat-trick from Andy Cole set the tone for an eventual 5-1 win at Old Trafford, before a 2-1 defeat in Belgium a month later.

Who's their danger man? Anderlecht are a team brimming with young, talented footballers and several members of their first-team squad have reportedly attracted interest from English clubs. One such player is 19-year-old Youri Tielemans, a Belgian central midfielder who is already making waves for club and country. Tielemans became the youngest Belgian to play in the Champions League in October 2013 and scored three goals in this season’s Europa League group stages, before being given the captain’s armband for both legs of the Round of 32 tie against Zenit. "It's already extraordinary that we have been able to enjoy three seasons of such talent," Anderlecht’s sporting director Herman van Holsbeeck admitted in January, and it appears there’s plenty more to come from the youngster. Elsewhere, look out for striker Lukasz Teodorczyk; the Polish frontman has scored a hatful of goals since joining the club on loan from Dynamo Kiev last summer, including five in the Europa League.

Who else is in action? There are three other quarter-final ties taking place on Thursday evening, all of which also kick off at 20:05 BST...

Ajax v Schalke
Celta Vigo v Genk
Lyon v Besiktas

Re: [UEL] Anderlecht vs Manchester United

Manchester United make the trip to Brussels to face RSC Anderlecht in the Europa League on Thursday, but who are the Belgian side and what can the Reds expect in the quarter-final tie?

Who are they? Founded in 1908, Anderlecht play their football at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium in Brussels, which first opened in 1983 and holds 21,845 fans for European matches. But the club are in the process of switching to a bigger home and are due to move to the 60,000-capacity Eurostadium, which will also be the home of the Belgium national team and host fixtures at Euro 2020, when construction work is completed in 2019. Anderlecht are the most successful Belgian club in history, with more European trophies (five) and Belgian top-flight title wins (33) than any other team. Their full name is Royal Sporting Club Anderlecht and their nickname is the 'Purple and Whites', which reflects the colours of the club's traditional home kit.

How did they get here? Anderlecht's European journey this season began as early as July in the Champions League but there was disappointment at the first hurdle as FC Rostov, whom the Reds beat last month to reach the last eight of the Europa League, claimed a 4-2 win over two legs in the third qualifying round tie. It meant the Belgians dropped into the secondary European competition and faced a play-off tie against Czech side Slavia Prague, which they easily navigated with a 6-0 aggregate win to reach the group stages. In Group C, they were pitted against German outfit Mainz 05, Gabala FC of Azerbaijan and French side Saint-Etienne, the latter of whom the Reds knocked out in the Round of 32 stage of the competition. Anderlecht progressed to the knockout stages in second place with a respectable record of 11 points from six games – winning three, drawing two and losing just once. They looked to be heading out in the Round of 16 after Russian outfit Zenit Saint Petersburg overturned a 2-0 first-leg defeat to lead 3-0 in the second leg, before a dramatic late header from Kiese Thelin took Anderlecht through on away goals. Apoel Nicosia of Cyprus presented a tough challenge in the last round but two 1-0 wins saw the Belgians advance to their first European quarter-final in 20 years.

What's their current form like? After narrowly finishing top of the newly-named Belgian First Division A in the regular league season, two points ahead of fierce rivals Club Brugge, Anderlecht have begun the Championship play-offs campaign, where the top six teams in the division play each other twice to determine who will qualify for next season’s Champions League and Europa League respectively. They've got off to a good start with four points from the first two games, a 2-1 win away at Zulte Waregem followed by a goalless draw at home to Gent last weekend. They have also fared well on home soil in Europe in recent months, winning five of their last six games.

Who's their boss? Anderlecht’s manager is Rene Weiler, who is in his first season in charge after replacing Albanian coach Besnik Hasi last summer. The 43-year-old spent his first two years of coaching with German second-tier outfit FC Nurnberg before arriving in Belgium. The former defender, who was capped once by Switzerland, established his reputation in his home country with Schaffhausen and Aarau.

Who are the players to look out for? Considered one of the brightest young prospects in world football, 19-year-old Belgian playmaker Youri Tielemans seems destined for the very top, with a number of top European clubs reportedly tracking his progress. An intelligent all-round midfielder with an excellent range of passing, Tielemans was voted Belgian Young Player of the Year in 2013 and 2014, and made his senior international debut last November. Captain Sofiane Hanni is one of the club's more creative players, with the French-born Algerian notching several assists already in this season's competition, and he was last season's Belgian Footballer of the Year after scoring an impressive 17 goals from midfield for former club KV Mechelen. The highly-rated Nicolae Stanciu became the most expensive signing made by a Belgian club when joining Anderlecht last summer from Steaua Bucharest in his native Romania, where he made a name for himself as a technically-sound player with an eye for goal, and is another player the Reds must be wary of.

Have they faced the Reds before? Well, Anderlecht were the opposition on a landmark occasion for the Reds in our first-ever European game back in September 1956, as goals in either half from Dennis Viollet and Tommy Taylor gave Matt Busby's team a 2-0 win in front of 35,000 fans at the former Emile Verse Stadium. The second leg of the preliminary round tie, however, was a memorable experience which went down in history as a rampant United annihilated the Belgians with a 10-0 win at Manchester City's former Maine Road ground, which remains the Reds' biggest competitive victory to date, to storm into the first-round proper of the European Cup.

What's their record like against English teams? It would be fair to say Anderlecht have a mixed record historically when it comes to facing opponents from England in Europe. The aforementioned demolition by the Reds aside, the Belgians have only won seven of their 32 games against English teams, drawing five and losing 20. They have also never tasted victory on English soil on 15 previous trips – including, most recently, a 2-1 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane in the Europa League group stages last season, having won by the same scoreline at home. However, Anderlecht have faced English opponents three times in major finals and achieved one notable triumph in their home city of Brussels, beating West Ham United 4-2 in a thrilling contest at Heysel Stadium. The others ended in disappointment: a 4-3 defeat by Arsenal over two legs in their first ever European final in 1970 and an agonising loss on penalties against Spurs in the 1984 UEFA Cup showpiece, following a 2-2 draw.

What's their overall history in Europe? Anderlecht have a chequered recent history in European competitions but enjoyed plenty of success during arguably the most successful period in the club's history, claiming five trophies on the continental stage between 1974 and 1984. During that memorable decade, the Purple and Whites won two European Cup Winners' Cups, two European Super Cups and one UEFA Cup. Meanwhile, Anderlecht’s last European quarter-final was in the 1996/97 UEFA Cup, where they lost to Inter Milan, just six years after being eliminated at the same stage by another Serie A side in Roma.

Re: [UEL] Anderlecht vs Manchester United
Manchester United supporters face arrest if they approach Anderlecht's ground without a match ticket

* Manchester United face Anderlecht in the Europa League on Thursday night
* Bags will not be permitted in the ground amid strict anti-terrorism measures
* Borussia Dortmund's team bus was rocked by three explosion on Tuesday
* Brussels is still on high alert following last year's terror attacks in the capital

Manchester United fans face being arrested if they try to get near Anderlecht's ground without a match ticket amid heightened security around Thursday's Europa League quarter-final.

Supporters have also been warned that bags will not be permitted inside the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium as part of strict anti-terrorism measures implemented around Brussels.

The Belgian capital has been on high alert since March 22 last year when co-ordinated attacks in the city killed 32 people and injured hundreds of others.

It means that all public events are subject to enforced security, including army presence, extra security sweeps and controls.

Thursday's first leg involving United and Anderlecht will come under even greater scrutiny following the bomb attack on the Borussia Dortmund team bus in Germany on Tuesday night that injured their defender Marc Bartra and forced the postponement of the Champions League quarter-final tie with Monaco.

Fans face being arrested if they approach the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium without a ticket

A statement on United's website warned the 1,250 fans expected to attend the game that they will face stringent security measures.

It read: 'Fans without tickets are being told not to travel as they will not get into the stadium. Belgian police advise that all supporters without tickets on the territories of Anderlecht will be administratively arrested, by decision of the Mayor.

'No bags at all will be permitted inside the stadium, including handbags. Unfortunately there are no storage facilities at the stadium, so we advise you not to travel with bags.

'This strict policy has emanated from concerns over terrorist incidents and will be very strictly enforced. Medical supplies will be allowed into the stadium after checks.'

At Anderlecht's pre-match press conference on Wednesday afternoon, an Anderlecht spokesman said that the club and security forces are 'prepared' for the game.

Asked how the incident in Dortmund might affect the players, forward Massimo Bruno: 'We have to live with that. We are footballers and we must go on playing. We have to think of something and stick together. Everything will be safe tomorrow.'

Manchester United's Europa League tie due to a 'bad feeling' in his ankle says Jose Mourinho ahead of first leg against Anderlecht on Thursday

* Wayne Rooney trained with Manchester United team mates on Wednesday
* However he is out of the game vs Anderlecht on Thursday with an ankle problem

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Wayne Rooney has not travelled to Belgium for their Europa League tie on Thursday.

United play the first leg against Anderlecht in Brussels and travelled on Wednesday, but Rooney was not among the squad.

Mourinho said that this was because Rooney has a 'bad feeling' in his ankle despite training with the squad earlier in the day.

He says the England forward could be fit to return at the weekend, when United play Chelsea in the Premier League.

Mourinho said of Rooney: 'He has a bad feeling in his ankle and he's not ready yet. Let's see for the weekend.'

Re: [UEL] Anderlecht 1-1 Manchester United

Jose Mourinho was disappointed his Manchester United side could not turn their dominance into victory in Thursday night’s Europa League draw against Anderlecht.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s first-half goal was cancelled out by Leander Dendoncker late on as the Reds drew 1-1 in the first leg of the quarter-final in Brussels, leaving the tie open heading into next week’s return at Old Trafford.

Read what the boss had to say in his post-match interview with BT Sport and press conference...

Positive result but could have been better
“The result is positive – to play at home with an advantage, to start the game with an advantage, it is a good result but I think the result should be much better. We can only blame ourselves because we had an easy game to play in the second half and we didn’t play in attack with that instinct. We lost the ball easily too many times, we stopped our counter-attacks because of sloppy decisions, sloppy touches of the ball and then we gave them opportunity to have some counter-attacks. But luckily our defenders were very much in the game and they resolved all of these problems. But if I were a Manchester United defender I would be very upset with the attacking players because they have to kill the game and they didn’t.”

Need to kill off matches
“We have to kill matches. We had chances, control, but we don't score goals; we risk. There was lots of space to kill, good chances. Lots of chances that we don't get because of a bad touch, sloppy touch, a flick, bad decisions in the last third. There was a team with good organisation at the back, but one mistake and we were punished.

“In my poor English I cannot find a better word [than sloppy]. You have to play more seriously. Put the performance of two or three of our attacking players together and you squeeze not much juice out of it. Rashford, Lingard, Ibrahimovic, Martial. They were very similar. But the people behind: very solid, very focused. The defenders did the serious work but the people who had to kill the game didn't. We start the game at Old Trafford in front, but we had all the conditions to kill the game.”

Strong defensive performance
“It was a strong performance from the team from a defensive point of view. [Jesse] Lingard, [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan, [Marcus] Rashford – they did defensively what we asked them to do, to compact the team, to control direct opponents, to cover some spaces. We were very solid defensively and that is not just about the defenders, it’s about the team as a team. But then when the team is broken, because we go to counter attack, we cannot lose so many balls because it’s not just about the chances we missed because we didn’t miss so many chances, it’s about half-chances. The chances where we feel the space is there, the time is there, the end decision is wrong.

Sometimes where you have to play two-touch, we play one touch and lose the ball. Other times you have to play one touch, you keep the ball, you turn, one more touch, you lose the ball. It looks like the decisions were wrong and probably the only one that everything was correct, the timings, the touches, the decisions was Paul [Pogba]’s shot, which was a good save by the keeper but obviously this is what happened to us all season, we have chances, we don’t score enough goals.”

Re: [UEL] Anderlecht 1-1 Manchester United

14 April 2017 | UEFA Europa League quarter-final first leg | Constant Vanden Stock Stadium | Attendance: TBC | Scorers: Mkhitaryan 36; Dendoncker 86

Manchester United hold the advantage against Anderlecht in the Europa League quarter-finals after securing a 1-1 draw in Thursday’s first leg in Brussels.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored a crucial away goal 10 minutes before the break at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium, netting from an acute angle to put United ahead, but Leander Dendoncker’s powerful header four minutes from time means the tie is still alive ahead of the return game at Old Trafford.

Ahead of the game, Jose Mourinho made three changes from the side that beat Sunderland last weekend, with Antonio Valencia, Michael Carrick and Marcus Rashford all named in the starting line-up.

Amid perfect conditions, and backed by a vocal home support, Anderlecht started brightly and might have tested Sergio Romero with three minutes gone, but for Massimo Bruno’s mis-hit effort from just inside the area.

At the other end, a one-two between Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic almost came off, but the ball skipped off the heavily-watered surface and into the hands of Anderlecht's goalkeeper, Ruben. The pace of both sides in attack was quickly becoming clear and the hosts had another half-chance soon after, following a swift counter-attack, but this time Bruno saw his effort blocked.

Mourinho’s men then so nearly took the lead on 18 minutes, as Rashford nonchalantly brought down a pass before fizzing in a low cross towards Ibrahimovic. The Swede’s stabbed shot ricocheted off Ruben and into the path of Jesse Lingard, who in turn could only hit the post. Rashford went for goal himself moments later, but his swerving 20-yard drive flew just wide, momentarily silencing the home crowd, who breathed a collective sigh of relief.

United, and in particular Rashford, were beginning to cause real problems for Anderlecht. With 27 minutes gone, Carrick found the youngster with a pin-point ball over the top; it was cleared as far as Mkhitaryan, who saw his effort well blocked. Micki was involved again as the Reds continued to press, nutmegging his marker and passing to Lingard, who was also stopped in his tracks.

At the next time of asking, however, the Reds did find a breakthrough. A neat move involving Ibrahimovic saw the ball slipped out wide to Valencia, who looked up and picked out Rashford. The attacker’s effort was pushed away, but Mkhitaryan raced in to fire into the roof of the net from a tight angle and claim his fourth goal in as many European away games.

It was the away goal the Reds had been looking for, and one which ultimately separated the sides going into the break.

Possession: Anderlecht 31% United 69%
Shots: Anderlecht 2 United 9
Shots on target: Anderlecht 0 United 3
Corners: Anderlecht 3 United 2

After the restart, the Belgians looked to respond and won a free-kick on the edge of the United box, but Nicolae Stanciu fired over the bar. In what was a strong start to the half for the hosts, Anderlecht came even closer to equalising on 50 minutes, when Bruno’s effort was hacked away by Valencia before crossing the line, and the defender followed up by blocking the rebound.

Having weathered the mini-storm, the Reds and Mkhitaryan could have scored a second at the other end, as the midfielder tried to divert Matteo Darmian’s cross into the corner, but saw his effort drop the wrong side of the post.

With Anderlecht in need of a goal, and United sensing that another might be enough to kill the tie, both sides made a change as the game reached the hour-mark, with Anthony Martial replacing Lingard. The Frenchman’s first act was to cut inside quickly from the left, though his low strike was blocked.

The hosts had appeals for a penalty waved away by referee Felix Brych, as Darmian slid into a 50/50 challenge inside the area, prompting further substitutions, as Marouane Fellaini entered the game in place of the impressive Rashford.

Chances were proving few and far between with the clock ticking down towards full-time, but Anderlecht substitute Sofiane Hanni’s deflected effort brought some hope of a late equaliser for Rene Weiler’s men. The attacker tried his luck again minutes later, but shot comfortably wide of Romero’s goal.

United might have doubled the advantage through Pogba after the midfielder found himself through on goal, and it was a missed chance the Reds were made to regret as, at the other end, Dendoncker’s bullet header flew into the net, to leave the tie in the balance.

Possession: Anderlecht 36% United 64%
Shots: Anderlecht 12 United 16
Shots on target: Anderlecht 1 United 7
Corners: Anderlecht 6 United 3


Anderlecht: Ruben, Appiah, Mbodji, Nuytinck, Obradovic, Tielemans, Dendoncker, Stanciu (Hanni 65), Bruno (Chipciu 58), Kiese-Thelin (Teodorczyk 75), Acheampong.
