Manchester United Football Club face a huge test in Turin this evening. Juventus are in great shape – and that’s without Cristiano Ronaldo firing on all cylinders to this point.
Let’s be honest, they embarrassed us during their 1-0 win at Old Trafford a fortnight or so ago, so hopefully, Jose Mourinho has a master plan up his sleeve to try and come out of this one with a more positive result.
Before the encounter, the self-proclaimed Special One was putting his players through their paces in Manchester on Tuesday morning. Amongst those involved was Marouane Fellaini and Antonio Valencia, who are both back in contention following injury. There was no Romelu Lukaku, though, as he is nursing an issue.

Judging from the pictures, it seems as though the players are in buoyant mood ahead of the clash that they simply have to win if they want to top their group.
Failing to secure victory leaves us in an odd predicament. Top spot would be gone, while we’d be fighting with Valencia CF for the second place finish, which we simply have to secure as United won’t want to spend the second half of the season in the Europa League.
