After being in the Champions League for eight consecutive years‚ the Red Devils are in dire need of a miracle. They need all of their stars to be in the starting XI for their knockout match against Leicester. Despite the hype‚ however‚ Manchester United are struggling to get the best out of star man Paul Pogba. In the 4-3 defeat to Sevilla four years ago‚ Jose Mourinho dropped the France international for the game. And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's attempts to develop him have failed. The club has only won two knockout ties in the last decade. Their only home knockout tie was in 2012‚ where they won 3-0 against Olympiakos. Since then‚ they have only scored once at Old Trafford after their group stage exit‚ and Renan Lodi's 41st-minute goal was a hammer blow. The team has also struggled in the Champions League for a long time. The Red Devils have lost seven Champions League knockout ties‚ with just one victory coming at Old Trafford.
