Here's the Manchester United side to face Anderlecht at Old Trafford

Meanwhile, Ashley Young felt Manchester United's stunning victory over Chelsea set a benchmark ahead of the conclusion of their Europa League quarter-final against Anderlecht tonight.

"We have Daley Blind who has experience in the position and I think it is time for Jones and Smalling to be courageous and to risk because for the team you have to do everything, that is the way I think".

However, Henrikh Mkhitaryan's away goal in Brussels last week could yet prove crucial as United look to progress to the semi-finals, which bookmakers have them as short as 1-12 to reach. I have confidence in every single player in the squad.

Mourinho also revealed that he will stick with Argentine worldwide goalkeeper Sergio Romero for Thursday's match, as he has done regularly in the Europa League this season, but he said that it wasn't simply a case of Romero for Europe and Spanish number one David De Gea as his main man on the domestic front. I cannot confirm now but the paparazzi that live in the Lowry Hotel, they can take the picture when we go to the hotel at six o'clock and see if Wayne is selected. "If we had won 3-0 it would be a nice game now and I could play some of the younger boys without any pressure".

It is not the first time Mourinho has expressed frustration about Martial after earlier this month criticising the forward, along with United's other attackers, for their toothlessness in the 0-0 draw with West Brom - the France international's last start. I think it is just that. "I am not saying he is old - we have older players, there are many older players in great conditions - but when you get to a certain age, it is a little bit more hard to recover".

Outcome? When he did return, in December, Mkhitaryan scored in three consecutive games, helping United to wins in the Europa League, over Tottenham and Sunderland.

United take on Anderlecht in their quarterfinal second leg at Old Trafford on Thursday. I can not say every match is for one or another.

But following a 2-1 defeat to rival Manchester City in September, Mourinho publicly criticized Mkhitaryan's performance and he wouldn't play in the Premier League again for 11 weeks. "We played better in the second half and higher up the pitch". 'In the Europa League, yes'. Sergio is very experienced and playing very well.
