Manchester United vs Anderlecht, Europa League

Martial might get another chance to prove his worth to Mourinho when United face Anderlecht in the second leg of their UEFA Europa League quarter-final on Thursday night.

Sergio Romero admits that he could not turn down the chance to join Manchester United, even it meant being number two goalkeeper to David de Gea.

Manchester United have won all their home games in this season's Europa League and are confident of getting the job done against Anderlecht tonight at Old Trafford.
