Doing well in the Europa League will also give us a better chance of qualifying for the Champions League the season after next. United will be promising players this summer that we’ll be back in Europe’s biggest competition in twelve months – but the players need to start showing up on the pitch when it matters most.

The Europa League was a thoroughly exciting competition to be involved in and to win back in 2017. It was José Mourinho’s first season in charge and it resulted in belief that things were finally coming together after Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

Nobody would have thought two years later we’d be back in the Europa League!
