The pitch is the same. Rooney, through suspension, and Mata did not feature during the 1-1 draw with Everton on Sunday afternoon but they are back in the team for United's crucial tie in Ukraine. Mikhail Sivakov went close to an equaliser with a close-range header which Sergio Romero brilliantly parried away before Ibrahimovic sealed the victory with a late breakaway goal.
Every time we meet him and see him he shows his quality not only as a player but as a man.

West Ham initially showed signs of improvement after the restart, but Sanchez put the result beyond doubt with two brilliant goals as the match reached a thrilling climax. But the West Ham manager made it abundantly clear to his struggling squad that he believed they could be caught up in the fight for survival and that now must be the time to turn their faltering season around.
But he capped a memorable first Champions League start with his third goal of the evening just two minutes after half-time when he slotted Alexis Sanchez's pass low into the far corner. A runners-up spot is 18-1 and they were 22-1 to win the competition before last night's final group matches. This rule does alter the equation quite significantly: with Real Madrid unable to draw group winners Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, it shifts the probabilities in favour of a meeting with ...
Though the Cardinals have faltered of late, losing 36-10 at Houston and 41-38 at home against rival Kentucky - with Jackson hoisting a career-high three interceptions - the team largely excelled behind its electric passer.

But the Argentine says he is happy to play wherever Guardiola asks him to. "It was obviously a dream come true to play Champions League football but once you accomplish that, you want to do well in it", said the 24-year-old.
