Manchester United wasted an early lead in the Europa League quarter-final tie against Anderlecht and will be left with yet another 1-1 draw in a game which could’ve been a victory.

It’s a saga that has been going on for quite some time now – Manchester United gets an early lead but then ends up losing it, and ends the game in a draw. It’s increasingly frustrating, for the club as well as the fans. Despite a great goal from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, United just failed to capitalise on the moment and couldn’t seal a victory.

As far as Anderlecht goes, Manchester United did outplay them. However, it was that one slip by Matteo Darmian, which allowed Leander Dendoncker to head in an equaliser. Interestingly, that was the Belgian club’s first ever attempt at goal in the entire match.

United lost a game which they should’ve won, and here are some of the most tweeted-about instances.

The Armenian Henrikh Mkhitaryan played a great shot into the goal and Twitter exploded in praises for him. Yesterday’s goal also makes it his fourth successive away goal in a European appearance for Manchester United.

As mentioned before, Manchester United lost their chances to convert this game into a win. The club really needs to work on their finishing to minimise the number of draws they’ve had to endure.

A lot of anger was also directed towards Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini for delivering a below-par performance against Anderlecht.
