    Excellent pass from Pogba, cool as a cuke from Zlatan.

    Job done, as they say.

    Good to see Mkhitaryan get his first goal for the club, a very good one too. A clean sheet and Bailly's return is heartening - we've really missed him in our defence.

    Manchester United... And Ipswich, apparently
    Dundalk out, needed a draw and a Zenit win and got neither :(

    Southampton behind. Need 2 in 12 minutes. Look to be out.

    Good win for Man United earlier. Southampton have gone behind and only have themselves to blame, been absolutely dreadful and we're banking on a 0-0 draw.

    Gutted. Absolutely fucking gutted.

    Fuck off Puel, you negative c***.

    I am fed up with the way this club is run. Someone as fucking shit as Nathan Redmond replaced Sadio Mane?

    Van Dijk deserves better than this shit. Go win some League titles lad.

    Serves you right for enrolling a French manager.

    Gutting that for Southampton other night, great chance to have a run in a European competition and they perform like that against a side nobody fancied to make it through. Can see Manchester United taking it seriously now as a place in the top 4 is looking quite unlikely.

    Man U travel to France to face Pogba's brother and Spurs play in Belgium.

    Spot the mistake at the end of the sentence under the picture of Jose..

    2003 Porto v Celtic?

    Or are the Beeb suggesting the UEFA Cup is different competition!

    They didn't even bother reporting the draw for this on teletext.

    Quite a tricky tie for Man United, wouldn't surprise me to see them go out if their league form picks up before then. Expect Spurs to get past Gent quite a favourable draw for them.

    Dark horse to win it is Villareal for me, the strongest defence in La Liga a decent attacking line up.

    All the qualities to win it.

    hear, hear! ...no losers cup anymore?

    Should be an interesting match today at Old Trafford (no, not because of this brothers duel ;) ). Saw St.Etienne twice this season in the Europa League against Mainz (both draws). Normally this shouldn't be a problem for ManU but I've learned yesterday that the French Ligue 1 is so good, way better than Serie A and the french team won't be battered like the german one years ago, so beware ManU /i

    Saint-Etienne haven't lost a Europa League game this season and have won four out of the five away games they've played in the competition. We shouldn't expect to thrash them but we are going to play a strong side, possibly full strength, and should get the win.

    They went 3-3-0 in Group C and especially the last match (3-2 win at Anderlecht) was brilliant and secured them #1 spot in the group. On the other hand they could only draw both matches against a weak Mainz side
    I am watching Schalke at PAOK Saloniki today. Should be another hostile atmosphere, the greek love us :D and Gladbach vs Fiorentina. Gladbach vs italian teams. Long story....

    Rumours are that we are starting with Pogba and Fellaini as our midfield pair tonight.
