United, having won the trophy in 1968, lifted it again in 2008 by defeating Chelsea on penalties in Moscow but have not reached the final since 2011, when they were beaten 3-1 by Barcelona.

Garner, who was an unused substitute in the Champions League last-16 victory over Paris Saint-Germain last week, has been with United since he was eight.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men suffered a 2-0 defeat by the Gunners at The Emirates last Sunday to hamper their hopes of finishing in the top four this season.

"Then again, there are so many variables and these games will be decided by margins".

"You're always measured on results but we played a good game against Arsenal, [we've] played so much worse and won games and that's the odd thing when you're a manager you can look behind the result and say that was a good performance didn't get what we deserved", Solskjaer said in his pre-match press conference.

"You're always measured on results but we played a good game against Arsenal", he told a media conference.

Following Friday's Champions League draw, Solskjaer insisted that the fans will rightly be excited to come up against the La Liga giants and has even claimed that his friends are teasing him that it's going to be Manchester United's year in Europe.

"So yes, we can go all the way but you've got to be lucky and good along the way". "They're like defining moments".

Solskjaer is aware of the comparisons between United's current run and that enjoyed by the treble winners of 1999.

"I believe he's got the chance to have a great future".
