One of the most open groups in the Champions League happens to be Group A, which includes Man United, Shakhtar Donetsk and Leverkusen. Fortunately, United have already qualified for the next round from their 11 points, and the remaining contest will be between Leverkusen and Shakhtar, who have seven and eight points respectively.

Interestingly, Ukrainian side Shakhtar have always scored against English opposition in the Champions League (seven games) and will certainly look to do so tonight at Old Trafford.


And given the recent form of visiting teams at the Theatre of Dreams, whose to say they can’t? Of course, a third straight defeat for Moyes’ men would be a nightmare, but least they will have Shinji Kagawa back.

Kagawa – who still needs to prove himself at the club – missed the defeat to Newcastle when he was rushed to hospital to have his stomach pumped after apparently last week.

We all know athletes and footballers tend to have a slightly more protein-filled diet, but if you put a plate of legendary prawn sandwiches near the locker room, don’t expect for them to stay there long enough!
