Manchester United will go to the Emirates with a 1-0 advantage after the result last night, most importantly managing not to concede an away goal. However, following a game which United completely dominated, seeing their goalkeeper earn a Man of the Match award, we obviously are disappointed not to put the game out of reach.
Patrice Evra has confessed he is very down in the mouth over the result.
“We are very disappointed, believe me,” said Evra. “We should have made sure the tie was over. We should have scored at least two more goals. One more would have moved us closer to the final. It is not a good result, we should be in front with more goals. We did what Sir Alex asked us but we did not score enough, so it is still 50-50.”
