Thanks be to jaysus from rashford. Hopefully we hold out or push for a third!

I doubt it. Utd should swat aside a team as poor as that at home.
Manchester United have failed to beat worse sides than Anderlecht in Old Trafford this season and a 2-2 or 3-3 result next Thursday will put the Belgium side through.

A 1-1 draw and penalties also.

Wasn't far away with this prediction.

Anderlecht showed little and really should have been put to the sword a lot earlier.

Only seen it now at his age it could be career ender.

I'd go with that!! He never stays down but you just knew that once he hit the ground that there was an over extension of the knee! Awful for him, he was trying so hard but was way off the pace in my view, not a good night with injuries and amount of effort needed to win...

An offside goal decision going against them to.. need a killer instinct in fairness

On that form Utd will struggle with the other teams, impressed with Anderlecht, couple decent players

I thought Anderlecht showed more tonight than they showed in the 1st leg when their only chance was that late goal in Belgium. Tonight they could have scored more than the one goal.

Hard earned win for United but has come at big cost with probably losing their top scorer and arguably best defender this season to injury. Celta Vigo,Lyon and Ajax a difficult semi final awaits whoever it is.

Must say I didn't really enjoy that even though some of the performances of United players were excellent. Confidence is the key word. Look at Rashford now. Rabona, Cruyff turn, beating players almost at will and terrorising the Anderlecht defence. I'm beginning to wonder, despite his massive contribution all season, if Ibrahimovic has been over used particularly at home. He's quite predictable and slow in general play.....the attack looks more vibrant and dangerous with Rashford (in this form) through the middle. Small sample size granted and to be fair ridiculous amount of chances missed again last night. Thankfully Anderlecht didn't capitalise on this and missed a few of their own. United's defence is really wobbly with Blind at centre back and the clown Pogba on the field constantly losing the ball. He seems to play the game as if it doesn't really matter or else, really infuriating player to watch.

Like the FA Cup last year United just seems to be doing enough to get through. Draw upcoming will ensure a tricky but winnable semi final. Don't want to express a pref for fear of hexing it!

Celta away, away first has helped them recently, still a tough draw but mucg better playing at home  in the second leg, as proved last night

Yes very tough draw. What are they 10th in La Liga, just 30 odd points off the top??

 Best draw they could of got for sure. Centre back is becoming a worry injury wise but Bailey is a class act and should become as good as Vidic.

You've seen Utd's form lately? They aint setting the world alight, a decent win over Chelsea does not mask a poor season, add in the injuries and you have the making of a tougher match than say 5/6 years ago against same type teams...
