On a knife–edge
Manchester United will have to settle for extra time after their side was unable to break down Anderlecht at Old Trafford.
The Red Devil’s did, in fact, take the lead in the first half through Henrikh Mkhitaryan but the Belgian’s hit back.
There was then an expectation that Man United would still go on to comfortably win the game.
Though, that was not to be the case as Anderlecht stood strong and posed many threats throughout the second half.
Now, Jose Mourinho’s side will have to break them down in extra time with the teams tied 2-2 with an away goal each.
Marcus Rashford had arguably the biggest chance of the second half when he was through on goal but his attempt to take the ball around the keeper did not come off.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic then had his own chance when the ball fell to him in the box, unfortunately for United, he was crowded out swiftly.
With 30 minutes left to go, it is crunch time for Manchester United’s season.
United fans fuming

JUST SCORE MAN UNITED

Man United needs to invest in proper strikers, Rashford and Ibrahamovic's inconsistency is annoying. They can't step up when needed #MUFC
