United writers pick who they want in Europa League draw – Arsenal included

Manchester United are in the draw for the Europa League quarter-finals tomorrow.

We decided to sit around the table (virtually via Slack) to discuss who we want in the next round after knocking AC Milan out of the competition.

Let us know in the comments section who you want and why?

Dale O’Donnell – Stretty News editor – Ajax

Firstly, none of the seven potential opponents cause me concern. I think United are by far the best team left in the Europa League and I will be very disappointed if we don’t go all the way this season. Ajax jump out at me because of the sheer romance that draw brings. Like drawing AC Milan, another story between two great clubs.

I think given the commanding nature of the other teams left, such as Slavia Prague, there could be several banana skins awaiting in the quarter-finals.

So for that reason, I think the easiest route to the semi-finals would be to take on a mid-table Premier League side.

Ben Parsons – Stretty News writer – Granada

United dismissed La Liga’s fifth best team in Real Sociedad in the round-of-32 and Spain’s eighth best side are arguably the weakest left in the competition.

Granada have scraped through in their previous two knockout rounds, though their victory over two-legs against Napoli was impressive.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are the strongest side left in this competition but that doesn’t mean a favourable draw isn’t helpful. United should have too much for most sides over two-legs but Granada is a more appealing tie than the likes of Roma, Arsenal and Ajax.
