Manchester United are very likely to win the Europa League, according to Paul Scholes, who also thinks a top-four spot will be achieved.

Paul Scholes does not think Manchester United have a difficult task to win this season's Europa League.

United face Anderlecht in the quarter-finals next month and Scholes thinks that of the teams left it is only Ligue 1 side Lyon who can prevent his old club from winning the tournament for the first time.
Jose Mourinho's side have already beaten Saint-Etienne and Rostov in the knockout stages, with their former midfielder optimistic over the chances of them lifting the trophy in Stockholm in May.
"It is a great chance for them," Old Trafford legend Scholes told Omnisport.
"They are obviously the biggest club left in the competition. They are favourites and rightly so.
"If they perform anything like [they can] they have got a great chance of winning. I think Lyon are maybe the obvious contenders to United. But, apart from that, I don't see too many problems for them in that competition."
Although Europa League glory would guarantee United a Champions League spot for next season, Scholes is confident Mourinho's men will do enough to secure their path in the Premier League by finishing in the top four.
"The chances are good and I expect them to finish fourth," said Scholes, who won 11 Premier League titles with United. "They have been on a fantastic run, without making much progress in the league.’’
United, who are four points behind fourth-placed Liverpool with two games in hand, are back in league action at home to West Brom on Saturday.
