Ahead of tonight’s Champions League clash at Old Trafford, Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has revealed what Manchester United should expect from Atletico Madrid.

Simeone is drawing on the experience of previous trips to England, notably a 3-2 win over Liverpool at Anfield at the same stage of the competition two years ago.

Simeone said: “We know every game is completely different, but we’ve done well in previous games like this in this country.

“(Juan Sebastian) Veron played here in a marvellous stadium like this. It’s got a great history and it will be another marvellous game.

“United can hit on the break as well, it’s not just us. Perhaps they’ll have long periods of having the ball, but we’ll have a dynamic game at a fantastic ground.”
