    Cristiano the born winner

    Erik ten Hag said that Ronaldo was happy at United but he was asked how a player with his status and ambition can be happy not playing:

    He is not happy that he wasn't playing on Sunday, don't get me wrong. But that wasn't the question. The question was what he is like on the training pitch and what his mood is around the team. He is happy. But of course, he wants to play and he is p****d off when he is not playing, clearly.

    Cypriots with big challenge ahead

    After back-to-back defeats against Sheriff Tiraspol and Real Sociedad, Omonia are at risk of an early European exit.

    The team now managed by ex-Celtic manager Neil Lennon were close to snatching a point away to Real Sociedad after coming from behind.

    In the last ten minutes the La Liga giants snatched a late winner.

    Coach reflects on what is needed

    Erik ten Hag spoke about whether Sunday’s result against Man City was a ‘reality check’ for his side:

    No. I know when you are in a process, it will not go only your way. You will have setbacks, and we beat the number one in the league [Arsenal], we beat Liverpool. On Sunday, we had a bad day at the office and we got beat. And in this moment, on that day, City were better. We have to accept that. But what we can't accept is our performance. That was unacceptable.

    Old foe looks for upset

    Omonia Nicosia are managed by ex-Celtic manager Neil Lennon.

    Lennon locked horns as a player with Man Utd in the UEFA Champions League during his time at Celtic.

    He will be hoping to upset the odds with his new team who have not won a single game against English opposition in four attempts.

    Hard one to watch for Ronnie

    Cristiano Ronaldo was forced to watch his side’s heavy defeat against neighbours Man City at the weekend.

    Erik ten Hag said he left the five time Ballon D’Or winner on the bench out of ‘respect’.

    The Portuguese forward wants game time and will be keen to play the full game this evening.

    Welcome to Omonia vs Man Utd

    Man Utd travel to Cyprus to take on Omonia Nicosia looking to bounce back from their weekend defeat in the Manchester derby.

    The Red Devils have taken three points from their opening two games and sit second in Group E, while their Cypriot hosts are rock bottom without a single point to their name.

    Omonio lost former Reims midfielder Moreto Cassama after 13 mins against Sociedad and having missed the weekend’s triumph over Doxa, the 24-year-old is a major doubt tonight.

    Hector Yuste was another casualty of Omonio’s most recent European game but was fit enough for the bench on the weekend and Lennon otherwise has no fresh concerns to report ahead of this game.

    Having come off the bench to make an impact last time out, Roman Bezus will push to displace Fotis Papoulis in the number 10 role.

    As for Man Utd, Raphael Varane was forced off with a knock at The Etihad after 40 mins and while the injury is not considered serious, he has not travelled with the squad to Cyprus.

    Harry Maguire will also take a little longer to battle back from a hamstring strain, while Donny van de Beek and Aaron Wan Bissaka are also absent, but Martin Dubravka has recovered from a muscular problem.
