Ibrahimovic starts for Manchester United against Anderlecht

Anderlecht warm up for their Europa League showdown with Manchester United by undergoing a light training session in a city centre park.

Manchester United has already managed to draw the first leg of the quarter final match against Anderlecht 1-1 giving them an away advantage. He included Zlatan Ibrahimovic in that group, even though the Swede is one of six on the short list for PFA Player of the Year and he's also been United's only real weapon this season.

But both return to the line-up as Jose Mourinho reverts to a side showing a great similarity to the one which started last week's 1-1 draw with the Belgian side in Brussels.

Rashford can be backed at 4/1 to find the net first and that price looks plenty big enough, while Ibrahimovic looks a shortish 15/8.

Predictably, with the tie played at Old Trafford Manchester United are heavy favourites to win comfortably on the night, let alone qualify, and although they weren't as clinical as they should have been last time out, the 1/4 on the home win looks just about right.

As confirmed yesterday, Sergio Romero starts in goal ahead of David De Gea as he continues his run of playing in the Europa League.

Also among the substitutes is Wayne Rooney, who has missed the last four games with an ankle injury.

United's away goal could be critical to seeing the club through to the semifinals.
