In an emotional encounter Cristiano Ronaldo will return ‘home’ and Sir Alex Ferguson will once again cross swords with friend and sometimes nemesis, Jose Mourinho.

Also in the show this week: we look ahead to fixtures against Swansea City in Wales, and a Boxing Day match against Newcastle United at Old Trafford. Can United start the packed festive programme with six points this week?

Finally, we take your many questions on Twitter and Rant Back!

With Antonio Valencia’s slight dip in form its possible to put Kagawa on the right. At Dortmund he frequented on the right behind Lewandowski. I don’t see Young as a full left winger either as he drops into the centre often. Could be a very dynamic front. Given Valencia doesn’t have a left foot, Kagawa would offer something completely different there.

I have to say i think United would without a doubt finish third or above if they were in La Liga…who would prevent them from finishing 3rd? Athletico? I really don’t think so

I want to agree with you, but can’t help thinking about us getting completely destroyed by Bilbao.

I wouldn’t read too much into last seasons European form. We were far too complacent considering we drew with Benfica + Basel at home, Lost To Ajax + Bilbao at Home and Lost to Basel away.We didn’t have too much trouble with valencia the season before.
