Europa League Thursday nights are back

United are favourites with the leading football bookies to win the Europa League. But will we do it, and does Mourinho even want to?

Whether you like or dislike the Europa League is now irrelevant. United are in this competition again and I think it’s a trophy we can go and win this year and why not? I’m not sure how Mourinho will approach it, but he knew we were in this when he joined us. Personally, I have no problem with it. Of course we’d all like to be in the Champions League, but we’re currently not good enough to be in it so let’s use the Europa League as a stepping stone to improve our European form, especially our away form in Europe and built on it for future seasons to come as a squad.

Below are our Thursday night fixtures for the next four months:

As well as United, the only other English league club currently participating in the Europa League is Southampton. They’re in a group with Inter Milan but will definitely be looking to qualify to the next round of this competition. Please see below for a list of all the teams from across Europe that are starting out in the group stage this season. There are twelve groups in total with the top two from each group qualifying for the next round, along with the eight¬†third placed teams from Champions League group stage.
