European campaign starts after Rostov for Jose Mourinho's Manchester United

Alyssa BaileyMar 10, 2017

United overcame horrendous playing conditions in Russian Federation to secure a well-earned draw from the first-leg of their last-16 tie on Thursday night. Not only is the Europa League another trophy-winning opportunity, it also provides a potential route into next year's Champions League.

United won the European Cup in 1968, the Cup Winners' Cup in 1991 and Champions League in 1999 and 2008.

United will hope to continue their impressive run in Europe's second-tier competition when they take on Rostov.

If Chelsea-Man United is the heavyweight quarterfinal match, then perhaps the most intriguing is the visit of non-league team Lincoln to Premier League giant Arsenal on Saturday. Rostov is a hard venue and both Bayern Munich and Ajax have lost there already this season. "It's far and comes in a very bad period for us, hard because they're a very hard team".

Massive strike set for tomorrow as the world marks International Women's Day
In some countries especially in rural areas and villages, women still stick to homes only by putting valueless ethics on them. This year, the organizers of the Women's March on Washington have called for a day of action called, "A Day Without a Woman ".

"It's a bad draw in every aspect".

With an FA Cup quarter-final tie with Chelsea on Monday the Manchester United boss will be delighted. "The midfield fought for the second goal and tried to give something in attack".

The hosts liked more likely to score in the closing stages, but they could not bypass the United defence as the score remained 1-1 at the full-time whistle.

Wayne Rooney hasn't travelled to Russian Federation despite being fully fit while Luke Shaw has also been left back in Manchester after making a rare start against Bournemouth at the weekend.

Armenian forward Henrikh Mkhitaryan returns to the 20-man squad after recovering from an injury incurred just after scoring the St Etienne victor.

Fast forward 12 months and Rashford has drifted out of the spotlight, and is mainly found either on United's substitutes' bench or pushed out to the wing to accommodate the new striker sensation at Old Trafford, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"We understand that it's not a decision of our club it's UEFA's decision to play match".

EPL wrap: Wins for Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur
Kane scored 25 goals in 37 games in the Premier League last season as Spurs finished in second place in the table. Kane has netted a PL goal every 106 minutes , compared to 129 for Lukaku and 126 for Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez.

Rostov are likely to be at full strength, except for doubts over injured first-choice goalkeeper Soslan Dzhanayev.
