Reasons for United to be hopeful ahead of Derby — Neville

Reasons for United to be hopeful ahead of Derby — Neville

Arsenal utilised the same progression structure that they have used throughout the season yet struggled to break down Manchester United's very structured 5-3-2.

"Romero is number one, Joel number two and David is the third best".

By attacking so aggressively, Arsenal was always going to be exposed in the back and prone to rapid counterattacks. We all know the physical toll a Thursday-Sunday schedule can have on a squad.

"It is a new rule", he told BT Sport. Start your seven-day free trial now on Amazon Channels.

Newcastle were at one time linked to the 22-year-old Shaw but his £20m price tag is said to have deterred the Magpies, whereas Darmian's more modest asking price of £15m has already attracted interest from Sevilla and Roma.

"We have a good squad and this is when the squad come into play". No surprise that in minute 80 he's feeling the consequences of that intensity. Options were available in the half-spaces, where Monreal and Koscielny were given ample space to penetrate with individual runs.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said: "I'm really happy because we don't want to qualify with a defeat", he said after United made the last 16 for the first time since 2013-14.

"If I could choose goalscorers, I would always choose the strikers".

"So it will be interesting - they will maybe sit behind the ball a little bit more".

Paul Pogba's outstanding clipped pass was the moment of magic required to unlock the CSKA Moscow defence and Lukaku held strong to direct home the leveller. Was United's £31 million center back a dud?

Meanwhile, as Shearer said, the upcoming derby will be key in deciding what way Mourinho's side is heading towards, and it might be the earliest indicator of who the genuine title contenders are among them. Good performance and good attitude.

An important catalyst seems to have been his success with the Sweden national team in qualifying for next summer's World Cup at the expense of Italy in November.

Serbian midfielder Matic limped off with a muscle problem at Watford last week but started in United's 3-1 Premier League victory over Arsenal on Saturday.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, on the other hand, is being treated with kid gloves before Sunday's top-of-the-table clash against Manchester City.
