Manchester United conceded a late equaliser away at Anderlecht on Thursday night to keep their Europa League quarter-final clash finely poised ahead of the return leg next week.

Jose Mourinho’s men looked on course for victory when Henrikh Mkhitaryan fired home an away goal nine minutes before half time, and although the Red Devils created several other opportunities to put them out of sight, they weren’t clinical enough in the final third.

And it came back to bite them as a Leander Dendoncker effort four minutes from the end secured the Belgian First Division side a 1-1 draw, and means that both teams will fancy their chances of progressing to the last four when they meet at Old Trafford next Thursday.

It was the case of ‘same old, same old’ for Mourinho’s United though, who once again got into good attacking areas and created big chances, only for the frontmen to show a lack of composure in front of goal.

And many United fans took to social media after the game to express their views on their side’s display, and it’s fair to say that the overriding emotion was that of frustration…

Nonetheless, several Red Devils fans were pleased with the performances of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford, although both missed great chances to give United that two-goal cushion…

And although many fans were irritated at yesterday’s display and result, they are still backing their side to get the job done at Old Trafford next week, and thus progress to the Europa League semi-finals…
