Celtic have to attack United to keep their Champions League hopes alive....

Manchester United realistically only need a point to end Celtic's Champions League hopes at Parkhead on Wednesday night; the holders are on seven points, while the Glasgow club have just one point. With the very real danger of stating the obvious, Celtic go into this match with a simple game plan; throw everything, including the kitchen sink at United because they have nothing to lose really given their plight.

Matches between the two teams are usually reasonably entertaining affairs, going into this game the United players will know what to expect from the home crowd, who will do all they can to help Celtic further their slim hopes of progressing to the next phase of the competition.

United's defence has been unusually porous over the last couple of games, with both Ferdinand and Vidic making mistakes which have led to goals. At the weekend United just about did enough to see off the challenge of plucky Hull City, while Celtic won 2-0 at Hearts.

There's little danger of complacency in the United camp given how many times our players have come up against Celtic recently and of course Fergie would no doubt like to put one over on the Celts.

I wouldn't be at all surprised to see another 4-3 as happened last weekend. Tevez will likely start and I have a gut feeling his name could end up on the score-sheet for United. The battle for competition for places in the Champions team is red-hot right now, which should hopefully make for a full-blooded slugfest. Bring it on.

One cautionary note to Wayne Rooney; calm down lad - we do not want to see him getting sent-off in this game, he has been like a coiled spring in the last two matches.
