Bring on Schalke!

On paper, we are clearly the favorites.

But we need to be cautious, considering how we have always end up losing to a German side in recent years. Of course, the 1999 Champions League was different and we went on to win against the Germans.

These 3 - Chicharito, Shrek and The KimChi Express - must be on top of their game

Since defeat by eventual winners Borussia Dortmund in the 1997 semi-finals, Man United have struggled to get the better of Bundesliga teams in two-legged ties in Europe's elite club competition.

They lost to FC Bayern München in the last eight in 2001 and the following year Bayer 04 Leverkusen halted their run in the semi-finals on away goals. Sir Alex's side succumbed to Bayern in last season's quarter-finals in similar fashion.

We can't afford a draw - or even an away goal - in the 1st leg, we need to go for the win; that's the only way we could secure our place in the final.

Yes, bring on Schalke and let's go kick some German ass!
