Rooney in contention for Man Utd return in Europa League tie

Anderlecht warmed up for their Europa League quarter-final second leg with Manchester United with a light workout in a city centre park.

"I think they have had three defeats in the entire season and in the last 22 matches in the game they are unbeaten".

Rashford featured heavily as United beat Chelsea 2-0 in the Premier League last Sunday, scoring after only eight minutes at Old Trafford.

"It would be a ideal end to a hard season, trying to build a team to recover a certain mentality, by playing in a European final".

After putting an end to his recent goal drought, Marcus Rashford has recaptured the form that initially saw him lauded as one of the most exciting young talents to come out of Manchester United's academy in years.

Mourinho gave his honest opinion on Anthony Martial when he said, "Do I think Anthony is a player with great potential?" Mourinho's squad selection was criticized before that fixture, with his starting XI indicating his focus on the Europa League, even though the team produced arguably their best performance of the season. "If we had won 3-0 it would be a nice game now and I could play some of the younger boys without any pressure".

Impact of Ontario housing measures on market may be short-lived
The Ontario government has announced what it calls a comprehensive housing package aimed at cooling a red-hot real estate market. In Toronto, the average price of detached properties hit $1.56 million, an increase of 32.8 per cent from March 2016.

Mourinho is seemingly very happy with the work ethic and attitude of Marcus Rashford, but he was a little bit more critical when he talked about other Manchester United attackers, Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

"These are the kind of things that make me trust players", he said. If not, one day you have a problem and the goalkeeper doesn't have the feeling for the match.

Ibrahimovic is United's top scorer this season, with 17 goals in the Premier League, while Rojo has established himself at the heart of United's defence. Mourinho is hoping to be able to call on Rooney's experience if need be: "With his experience and know-how of this knockout phase, he is a player who can be useful".

The United boss said: "It is impossible for Herrera to play every match unless you are the only centre backs we have in the team". I always think that football is a lot about motivational levels and, of course, playing the leaders is always a challenge.

Mourinho's side are now fifth in the Premier League on 60 points, four behind Manchester City but with a game in hand.
