It’s been two months since Wayne Rooney made an appearance for The Red Devils following his unfortunate knee-injury in the middle of February, with his biggest fans being forced to look elsewhere for entertainment whilst he has been away.

Former France coach Raymond Domenech says that he does not expect Manchester City to even come close to beating Paris St Germain in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Louis Van Gaal is ecstatic that his side is back in the Premiership with some fine performances recently.
The Red Devils are now a real contender for Champions League qualification as they have managed to close in the gap of points between them and the teams at the top spots in the table.

They have got as many points as the 4th positioned Manchester City now and just 4 points less than Arsenal which is no. 3.
According to Van Gaal, there is not much difference in the quality of the sides in the domestic league in England and on a given day, any side can be beaten by any other side in this competition and that’s what keeps it so tight all the time.
