Jurgen Klopp makes prediction about Man United
Jurgen Klopp explains why he is expecting to see Manchester United win the Europa League this season
Jurgen Klopp is tipping Manchester United to win the Europa League this season.
The Red Devils are currently preparing for the return leg of their quarter-final clash against Anderlecht at Old Trafford on Thursday night after last week’s 1-1 draw in Belgium.
Manchester United are among the favourites for the competition and it has taken on a greater significance for the Red Devils due to the fact they are not assured of a top-four finish in the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho’s men could secure their spot in next season’s Champions League by winning the Europa League this season.
And Liverpool manager Klopp says he is expecting Manchester United to lift the trophy this term.
Speaking in an interview with Sport1, Klopp said: “Manchester United have a tremendously well-assembled squad.
“They are very likely to reach the Europa League final, so we’ll then see how many key players they still have available,They have already got injury problems.
“But with their extensive squad, they have been able to react to pretty much everything that has come their way.
“Recently they have had four or five players out injured and Henrikh Mkhitaryan was not used in the early stages of the tournament.
“You can tell from that just how much quality they possess from the outset.
“United have a mix of experience, pace and quality. They are truly a good team. And to my mind they are favourites to win the Europa League.”
Manchester United kept their top-four hopes alive on Sunday with an impressive 2-0 win over Premier League leaders Chelsea.
The Red Devils have already won the Community Shield and EFL Cup under Mourinho this term.
