The Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern were relieved to see their side secure a place in the last eight of the Europa League, despite their win over FC Rostov coming in less than convincing fashion.

It wasn’t a typically energetic performance from the Red Devils and many of the supporters in the Tavern were getting worried that it might not be their night at one stage.

United did manage to scrape through thanks to Juan Mata’s second half goal and they will look to get into a more fluent stride this afternoon when they face a Middlesbrough side who are currently without a permanent manager.

Ahead of this afternoon’s game, several of the United faithful have gathered here in the Tavern to discuss tactics, and Lee Clarke looks at two players who should be axed by Jose Mourinho later on today.
