Manchester United´s calm stroll through Champions League Group F continued at Old Trafford as they brushed aside Dynamo Kiev 4-0 to further fuel a growing belief this could be the season they emulate the European Cup heroes of 1968 and 1999.

Sir Alex Ferguson has challenged the modern-day Red Devils not to end their careers as ´nearly men´. And while Kiev represent nothing like the biggest obstacle on the path to glory in Moscow on May 21, the ease with which United achieved their victory suggests this could be a very special season.

Roma´s last-minute equaliser in Lisbon confirmed United´s place in the last 16, with top spot and a top seeding for the knockout phase to come providing Ferguson´s side beat the Portuguese on this ground in three weeks´ time.
