A Week to Forget for Manchester United

Former Middlesbrough midfielder Peter Beagrie says Aitor Karanka's departure from the Riverside is not a shock Redknapp believes he can 'save Middlesbrough from drop'

The Russian club played out a 1-1 draw with Jose Mourinho's side in the first leg and United will be strong favourites to progress on Thursday.

Jose Mourinho believes Manchester United's supporters can help them overcome a hard build-up to their Europa League last-16 second leg against Rostov.

The Reds have been battling on four fronts for much of the season and despite the disappointment of being knocked out of the FA Cup by his old club, Mourinho can take some solace from the fact he now has just two competitions to focus on. The return leg is expected to be a formality, with this being Rostov failing to win away from home in their last five European games.

Ibrahimovic was involved again 11 minutes later when he latched onto the end of a ball over the top from Mata, but after attempting to round Medvedev, his finish from a tight angle was deflected over the bar by the hand of the Rostov keeper.

Manchester United's season has been filled with ups and downs so far.

Jose will look to put the recent cup loss behind him.

He was injured for Chelsea match. Paul Pogba was forced off the pitch with what appeared to be a hamstring injury early in the second half, which could see changes to the side against Middlesbrough. They are now sixth in the EPL but they do have a few games in hand on some of their direct rivals as Mourinho's club are trying to climb back up the standings.

Having grabbed a valuable away goal last week, Manchester United's second leg Europa League tie with Rostov was never going to be a classic.

Like Rostov, Rubin Kazan's Central Stadium has also been banned by the Russian Premier League. We created some good chances but we could not score. Martial replaced Mkhitaryan in the 67th minute to add more pace to the attack, but United could not capitalise on the few chances they had.

Rostov have lost only three of their last 14 games in European competition (including qualifiers W4 D7).

United are six points adrift of the top four in the Premier League and with a truly bad run of fixtures ahead of them including against Arsenal and Spurs away, as well as against table-toppers Chelsea, they'd have to go some to finish with a spot in the Champions League next season.

The Red Devils won the FA Cup last season.

"I think every single player of both teams will benefit from using a picture of the higher quality", Daniliants said of playing on the plush grass of Old Trafford.
