THINGS looked like going to plan for the Europa League favourites in the quarter finals after Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s goal.

Manchester United opened the scoring in the 36th minute and were in relative control of the game.

Then, after Maroune Fellaini and had a shot from distance saved, before Paul Pogba was thwarted after being played in behind by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Anderlecht made Jose Mourinho’s side pay.

Leander Dendoncker brought the tie to life with a thumping header past Sergio Romero to ensure the first leg finished 1-1 ahead of the return leg at Old Trafford.
