Mourinho: I would rather win Europa League than come fourth in Premier League Hayters

That is all for this particular live blog, thanks for following along. Post-match reaction from Mourinho to come.

Goodbye for now.


Dendoncker's emphatic late sucker-punch gives Anderlecht hope and ensures that draw specialists United, who largely dominated proceedings, are held to yet another tie.

That persistent profligacy continues to be a real issue for Mourinho ahead of Sunday's meeting with Premier League leaders Chelsea at Old Trafford.


Full-time scores

Anderlecht 1-1 Manchester United

Ajax 2-0 Schalke

Celta Vigo 3-2 Genk



Fosu-Mensah's first involvement is to pick up a yellow card for a studs-up challenge on Hanni.


Pogba with another dreadful effort. Timothy Fosu-Mensah replaces Mkhitaryan as the fourth official signals three minutes of added time.


Not for the first time under Mourinho, United are made to pay for their lack of scoring nous.

21-year-old Belgian midfielder Dendoncker slips beyond Fellaini and rises above Darmian to emphatically head home Obradovic's pinpoint left-wing cross.

Deafening noise at Constant Vanden Stock Stadium. Anderlecht are level.

Leander Dendoncker


Goal: Anderlecht 1-1 Manchester United (Leander Dendoncker)


Fellaini drives an effort on target before Ibrahimovic tees up Pogba with an excellent chipped pass. The world's most expensive footballer, without a goal to his name since January, shoots straight at Ruben under pressure from Obradovic.

That should have been 2-0.


Hanni has provided a spark for Anderlecht since coming on. The Algerian receives possession from Acheampong and beats Fellaini before seeing a shot deflected wide by Bailly.

A subsequent corner is flicked on at the near post before being hacked clear by Mkhitaryan.


Anderlecht top scorer Teodorczyk takes the field for the final 15+ minutes of this first leg. Thelin jogs off.


Anderlecht's hopeful penalty appeals are waved away after Carrick makes an important intervention on the edge of the penalty box.

Former Standard Liege man Fellaini is treated to a hostile reception as he comes on for Rashford.



Another Trossard cross is nodded in by Buffel at the back post. Genk notch a second away goal.

A promising Anderlecht attack breaks down when Hanni turns straight into Marcos Rojo. 20 minutes plus stoppage time remaining in Brussels.


Hanni's first attempt cannons back off Bailly. Rashford leads a swift United counter-attack and is scythed down by a poor challenge from Obradovic.

Yellow card.


Hanni for Stanciu is Weiler's penultimate change.


With just over an hour gone, Mourinho looks to his bench for the first time tonight. Martial replaces Lingard.


Obradovic slices a shot well wide after Acheampong's cross is deflected into his path by Bailly.

The Ghanaian was released by a perfectly weighted pass from Tielemans.


Anderlecht's first substitution of the evening sees Chipciu replace Bruno.


Justin Kluivert tees up Ajax top scorer Klaassen for his second goal of the night.


Goal: Ajax 2-0 Schalke (Davy Klaassen)


Rashford lets fly from a central position, but his shot is straight at Ruben. No problems for the goalkeeper on loan from Deportivo La Coruna.
