Ibrahimovic returns for Man Utd as Mourinho makes five changes against Anderlecht

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has returned to Manchester United‘s starting lineup for tonight’s Europa League game against Anderlecht.

The Red Devils welcome the Belgian outfit to Old Trafford for the second leg of their quarter-final clash, with the tie finely poised at 1-1.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan opened the scoring in the reverse fixture at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium last Thursday before a late Leander Dendoncker header meant it was all square going into tonight’s game.

Jose Mourinho has only made one change from the first leg with Luke Shaw replacing Matteo Darmian in the left-back position, while Ibrahimovic starts up top having been rested against Chelsea in the Premier league last Sunday.

Elsewhere in the team, Sergio Romero takes his usual place in goal, Michael Carrick gets another starts and Henrikh Mkhitaryan returns in the No.10 role.

Wayne Rooney has returned to the bench following an injury absence, though there is no room in the starting XI for French forward Anthony Martial.

The 21-year-old’s last start for the Red Devils came on April 1st when United drew 0-0 with West Brom and, somewhat unsurprisingly, his exclusion didn’t go down well with all supporters…
