If we avoid defeat away to Braga tomorrow night, qualification will be wrapped up with two games in hand. This is certainly contrasting to last season, where we struggled both home and away. The biggest bonus will be the fact that we can rest key players amongst the busy winter period.
Sir Alex has confirmed that Chris Smalling will feature at ‘some point’ tomorrow night, which is obviously good news. He also said that Jones will return to first team training on Monday, leaving just Kagawa and Vidic sidelined.
