Manchester United take on Saint-Etienne at Old Trafford this evening, with Jose Mourinho’s men looking to get a lead to take to France. The game itself won’t be easy, but over the two-legs, you’d imagine the Red Devils should have enough firepower to pull through.
The Theatre of Dreams will no doubt be absolutely rocking this evening, particularly if the scenes in Manchester city centre this afternoon are anything to go by.
Martin Mosnier of Eurosport France posted this video on his Twitter account, and the French fans seem to be having a wonderful time on a chilly Thursday in Manchester.

At the end of the day, this can only enhance the atmosphere inside the ground which will make for a more interesting match. It’s great to see so many ASSE supporters travelling over and making some noise in the centre of town – and no doubt, come 20:05 GMT they’ll be well up for a real intense match.
