The Red Devils made it to the competition’s last four after a nail-biting extra-time win over Anderlecht at Old Trafford on Thursday night, and their first-leg against Celta will take place on May 4 in Spain.
Of course, the La Liga side’s most dangerous player is none other than Iago Aspas, the Spaniard who cost Liverpool around £9 million back in 2013 and went on to score zero goals in 14 league appearances – as well as taking one of the worst corner kicks of all-time.
But these are changed days for Aspas, who is the toast of the Spanish top-flight at the minute.
This season, the 29-year-old has managed 24 goals in 45 matches – and Liverpool fans are convinced he’s about to knock United out of Europe:

What do you think? Is Iago Aspas really the man who is about to end United’s European hopes – and possibly stop them from qualifying for next season’s Champions League too?
