Tonight, as the two teams emerge form the dressing rooms in the Bernabeu, it`s essential that United don` get fazed by what lies ahead of them.

Although the opposition are a top class team, we should not forget that we have our own top-notch credentials. On our day we`re more than capable of getting a result and Jonny Evans, now a mainstay of the central defence has re-iterated this point in the media this morning, remarking,

“We can`t be daunted.”

“We are Manchester united, teams look up to us as well.”

“I am sure the pressures will be on them. They have good players who can hurt you but we play against Premier League opposition every week and that is one of the best leagues in the world.”

“It is just as if we were playing Man City or Liverpool. They are top players and we have to be spot on.”


My feeling is that Sir Alex will have been cajoling and coaxing his players, utilizing all his experience, to ensure we do get the required result tonight, as the gaffer seeks another Champions League trophy to hang onto his CV.
