Man United

Manchester United were knocked out of the Champions League after a 3-2 defeat against Wolfsburg in Germany.

The Red Devils finished third in their group and will now play in the Europa League for the rest of the season.

Louis Van Gaal’s squad was troubled with injuries and he had to field a team of youngsters with an average age of around 24.

In 2009, when United traveled to Wolfsburg, Sir Alex Ferguson faced the same problems and fielded a weak team. But he still managed to win comfortably.

Michael Owen scored a hat-trick for United in a 3-1 win.

United’s back four on that day featured Michael Carrick, Darren Fletcher and Park Ji-Sung.

United flops Anderson, Nani and Darron Gibson were present in the midfield along with the experienced Paul Scholes.

This is how they lined up.
