Manchester United take on the challenge of LASK Linz in the Europa League and are poised to claim the title as the inform side.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has transformed Old Trafford. If fans were allowed, the stadium would be buzzing with optimistic cheers, akin to the fan forums and news outlets.
The Red Devils are unbeaten since January 26, the great run coinciding with the arrival of Bruno Fernandes.
United are in the FA Cup semi-finals and have a great opportunity to progress in Europa League. After defeating LASK Linz 5-0 in the home leg, only a disastrous performance Austria would thwart their chances.
Here are top three reasons why Manchester United fans can be optimistic about their chances in Europa League.
Form team of 2020
Titles are what great teams are forged off and United have a rich history. Solskjaer’s men have form on their side, which should not be taken slightly. They were unbeaten in 11 games before the coronavirus enforced lockdown and have added a further five wins and a draw in Project Restart.
This has allowed them to mount an attack for Champions League spots, and they are in touching distance. That result would be realized when Europa League starts and Manchester United will be in good spirits to continue their form.
Only Tottenham managed to choke Manchester United and it was in their first game of Premier League restart. Since then, they have troubled the scorers two or more times in their five games.
They scored three goals on three occasions and five in one, with the away trip to Norwich City only seeing them hit the back of the net twice. Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood are scoring goals for fun and they should bring the trophy to Old Trafford.
Paul Pogba’s resurgence
Bruno Fernandes has made an immediate impact. However, there is no denying the fact that Paul Pogba is the most talented player int their roster.
The Frenchman was burdened by a lot of duties earlier in his United tenure but Solskjaer has lifted that. While Fernandes and the attacking trio toil ahead, they have reassurances in the fact that Pogba is with them.
