Europa League: Owen Hargreaves Names Favourites Club to Win Trophy

Former Manchester United midfielder, Owen Hargreaves, has identified the Red Devils as definitely one of the ‘favourites’ to win the Europa League this season.

Hargreaves, a former Manchester City star, said this after Man United thrashed Real Sociedad 4-0 in the Europa League round of 32 first-leg tie on Thursday night at the Juventus Stadium.

A brace from Bruno Fernandes and a strike each from Dan James and Marcus Rashford gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side an advantage ahead of the return second leg at Old Trafford.

“They [Manchester United] are definitely one of the favourites to win the Europa League,” Hargreaves told BT Sport.

“I think they will win a trophy this season Manchester United, whatever that’s going to be.

“And if they can finish second in the Premier League, bridge the gap to Manchester City and Liverpool, then I think they are in a good position, and then they need to go and strengthen [their squad] in the summer.

“Ole’s done a good job and if they can add a trophy, that is exactly what Manchester United fans will want.”
