After the first game ended a disappointing 1-1 in Belgium, Manchester United have bounced back, demolishing Antonio Conte’s Premier League leaders, Chelsea on Saturday. You would imagine that Manchester United are now carrying unprecedented amounts of momentum, that would see them walk all over Anderlecht. Manchester United v Anderlecht betting odds will certainly be playing an important factor during my evening, lots of goals with the home team on great current form.
It is integral for Jose Mourinho’s men to continue working on their play (as boring and unentertaining as it may be), it has seen them see off Chelsea, so it is only a matter of time before they are able to test out that winning formula during a match that carries significant return for Manchester United (A Champions League position) since at this moment, they do not look like securing a top 4 finish.
With the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard proving thrills against Chelsea at the weekend, you hope to see their blossoming striking relationships continuing to grow. If these 3 are up to scratch on Thursday, you can expect to see a lot of goals. Zlatan has been a key man for United this season, commanding the pack, offering expertise & most importantly in scoring integral goals.
However, you can’t write off Anderlecht just yet. Lukasz Teodorczyk is Anderlecht’s top goal scorer in the Europa League this term having scored 5 so far, matching the number Zlatan has also scored. Sofiane Hanni has also matched Zlatan in terms of goals scored. So Manchester United may not have such an easy night after all despite being home at Old Trafford which has proven not to be an invisible stadium this Premier League season.
Anderlecht will be approaching this game without having lost even 1 in 7 in all competitions. Lets see whether they can use their very own momentum to edge ahead.
Supporters will hope that the combined shooting power of Zlatan, Mkhitaryan & the addition of Rashford & Lingard will cause all kinds of problems for Anderlecht. But I think we will be in for a fantastic night at Old Trafford, and the game is one not to miss.
