MANCHESTER UNITED have once again been tipped to win the QUADRUPLE by Paul Scholes.

The Red Devils progressed into the next round of the Europa League after a 2-1 comeback victory against Barcelona.

And following the win Scholes backed United to win the quadruple, after suggesting they could do it last week.

Following the thrilling 2-2 draw at the Camp Nou, Scholes said: “The quadruple’s still on.”

Seven days later he repeated the message, telling BT Sport: “In the top five leagues in Europe we are the only ones who can still win the quadruple.

“Look it is there, it’ll be difficult but who knows?”

Second half goals from Fred and Antony ensured United came back from their first-half deficit, brought about from Robert Lewandowski’s penalty.

It means United go into Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Newcastle unbeaten in nine, with a chance to land the club’s first piece of silverware in six years.

United will then host West Ham in the FA Cup on Wednesday.

And the fixture list doesn’t get much easier after that, with a visit to arch-rivals Liverpool in the Premier League next Sunday before the last 16 ties in the Europa League get underway.


Ten Hag will find out who his side will face in the next round in Friday morning‘s draw.

Arsenal will also learn their fate, although the English sides cannot face each other in the last 16.
