EUROPA LEAGUE TICKETS - QUARTER-FINALS
Manchester United v Anderlecht tickets @ LiveFootballTickets.com
Manchester United’s manager Jose Mourinho and his talented side have their eyes on the Europa League trophy and glory as they prepare for their upcoming match on April 13th against Anderlecht in Belgium in the first leg of their Europa League quarterfinal in Mourinho’s first season at the helm at Old Trafford. United are scrapping for a top-four finish in the Premier League, and the Europa League crown that offers a fail-safe return to the Champions League tournament in the 2017-18 season.
United midfielder Luke Shaw believes his side have what it takes to become "unstoppable'' in their quest for 2017 Europa League glory. Shaw said the team approach brimming with confidence.
"It was a really good win and a really important one,'' said Shaw of United's 3-0 Sunday win at Sunderland. "We needed to win to fight for that top-four spot and this game should kick us to go on a winning run between now and the end of the season. Every single game is massive now, but I think the one on Thursday is huge. We have to treat every game in that competition now like it's a final. We want to win that tournament. We fight for whatever we have got left, I just think we have to have that mentality where every game is a cup final and not worry about which competition it is in. But, yeah, the Europa League is a massive thing for us now -- it's a trophy and it gives us qualification for the Champions League.''
With Community Shield and EFL Cup victories under their belts, winning the Europa League is a top priority for United.
"I think we have to look at that as the priority now,'' Shaw said. "We've got to fight for that. Anderlecht will be tough, every team left in this stage of the competition will have quality. We've got to focus all week on what their strengths and weaknesses are, but most of all we need to focus on ourselves, what we do and how we play. With the players we have got, we can be unstoppable.''
Shaw was left off the squad for St Etienne and Rostov, but he has hope of being involved in Belgium. The 21-year-old was a surprise substitute against Everton and a start at Sunderland, with the left-back performing impressively at the Stadium of Light.
"I've got a massive smile on my face,'' said Shaw. “It's great to have got 60 minutes under my belt and to help the team get the victory we needed. I wanted to play 90 minutes but it is the manager's call and I think the manager made a good decision to sort of make sure I didn't get that second yellow. I felt really good, felt really fit and now on from here I just want to work hard in training and keep playing games. I feel really good, I feel really confident. I took what the manager said on board and, like I said, I will work hard until the end. I want to be at this place and hopefully I can carry on giving great performances for the club until the end of the season.''
United superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic took his goal tally to 28 at the Stadium of Light. After the match Ibra compared himself to Benjamin Button.
"Listen, whatever he says he backs up,'' said Shaw. "He always delivers and he delivers at the most important times. At Sunderland he was really good again, setting up Rashford's goal at the end and obviously scoring the important goal for us at the start. It is wonderful to have a great player like him in our team and hopefully he keeps going until the end of the season and helping us.''
