Manchester United are winning the Europa League competition, yes! Say it loudly and proudly.
Man United have shown their consistency in the Europa League, at least, and they are on the right track to winning the competition for the second time in four years.
Since joining the Europa League after crashing out of the Champions League in group stage, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have shown the desire of righting the wrongs they made last season in the competition.
Last term, the Red Devils were the favourites to lift the competition due to their classic performances but moments of loss of focus saw them bottle the competition after they painfully lost 2-1 to Sevilla, despite having the best chances, on a neutral pitch in Germany.
The majority of the fans believed Manchester United could have turned the game around if the draw was a two-legged draw but nevertheless, one.
This term, Man United side have eliminated the like of Real Sociedad, that was one of the best teams in the La Liga during that time, in the round of 32.
United would go on to get a tight victory over AC Milan in the round of 16, with Paul Pogba scoring the only goal in Italy.
Granada tried to prove stubborn, but United showed them who the boss was and the Spanish side profoundly lost both ties against United, something United didn’t do against Sociedad and Milan.
And coming from a 2-1 first half defeat to beat Roma 6-2 at Old Trafford has technically put Manchester United in the Europa League final though it is mathematically possible that United could still crash out of the competition but Roma have to beat Man United 4-0 in Italy next week. Do you see that happening? 🤔 LOL. Man United, who guided a narrow 1-0 win over Milan, cannot sit back and let Roma pump four unreplied goals in Italy.
Now, United will face either Villarreal or Arsenal in the final and both teams are clearly struggling in their respective leagues.
If United could convincingly beat Granada, who beat title challengers, Barcelona, at Nou Camp on Thursday, on both legs, they could even get a better result against Villarreal, who lost at home to Barcelona in the La Liga in a few games back or Arsenal, who have disappointed their fans relentlessly this term in all competitions.
Villarreal will host Granada at home on May 2, same day United will be facing Liverpool at Old Trafford and we will finally get to know the stronger team between both La Liga sides.
Say it loudly and proudly, Manchester United are set to be crowned as the champions of the Europa League.
Reaching the first final under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, wouldn’t be a waste.
