Bring on Barcelona... but first Manchester United aim to seal Premier League title

United celebrate against Schalke United celebrate against Schalke
Manchester United's Euro heroes aim to be the Premier League champions when they walk out for the European Cup final at Wembley on May 28.

The Reds stormed through to a London showdown against Barcelona with a 6-1 record-breaking semi-final aggregate win over Schalke.

John O’Shea, captain for the night against the Germans,  believes the two crunch clashes – the first with Chelsea this Sunday that could decide the Premier title, and then the Euro shoot-out in the capital with Barca – should hold no fears for the Reds.

“It is a fantastic occasion now at Wembley,” said the Irish defender.

“We saw how well Barcelona played against Real Madrid. We know Barca are a fantastic team but they will be worried about some of our players too.

“Now we have to focus on winning the Premier League title. The game at Old Trafford this Sunday is set up for a classic. We think our excellent home form can see us through.”
