Owen Hargreaves rates Manchester United’s chances of winning Europa League after beating AC Milan

Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has rated the club’s chances of winning the Europa League after Thursday’s victory over AC Milan.

After a 1-1 first-leg draw at Old Trafford last week, Manchester United beat AC Milan 1-0 at San Siro on Thursday night to progress to the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

According to Hargreaves, Manchester United are clear favourites to win the Europa League.

Hargeaves told BT Sport: “United are the best team, with the upmost respect to everyone else.

“They are the favourites and they should be the favourites. Arsenal, Roma, maybe. They are all here for a reason, they are good teams, but United have the most talent. If they can put the pieces of the puzzle together they should win this if it goes according to plan.

“I’m sure Arsenal and Roma will disagree but I think anyone watching will realise United have the strongest squad left in the competition.”
