We can beat Manchester United - Eduardo

Published Add your comment

Former Arsenal striker Eduardo believes his current club, Shakhtar Donetsk, have a great chance of beating Manchester Unite in the Ukraine tonight. 

The Red Devils have had a tricky start to the season and have lost three of their opening sic Premier League games. 

David Moyes was able to steer the Red Devils to a 4-2 Champions League win over German outfit Bayer Leverkusen in United's first group game, however Eduardo has backed his side to beat the English champions tonight. 

However, the Brazilian-born star has admitted that Shakhtar will have to be at their best tonight to beat United as Moyes' side still offer a great deal of quality.

And, ahead of the game, Eduardo told The Sun: "We have the opportunity to win this game.

"United may be in trouble but they are still strong and we have to concentrate.

"But they will be under pressure even if the teams have a different mentality in the Champions League and raise their game.

"We beat Arsenal here a few years ago and Chelsea last season. We always play very well at home."

Both teams will be hoping to maintain their 100% start to this year's European campaign in this top of the table clash.

And, United will be desperate for a response after their latest defeat in the Premier League.
