Buttner is keen to get his chance in the final Group A game against Shakhtar following the news that defender Patrice Evra missed training on Monday.

The Dutch defender came on as a substitute for the final 20 minutes of United's 5-0 win away to Bayer Leverkusen and he is hoping to be selected by under-fire manager David Moyes as United look to top the group.

Buttner told the club's official website: "It was fantastic to qualify for the last 16 - it's good for the club, the manager, the players and the fans.

"It's a huge competition and everyone wants to win this trophy.

"Everyone was sharp and the whole team played well. We fought for every ball and played some good football.

"The confidence was really good throughout the team and we need to make sure we win the group now.

"I was pleased to get some minutes in such a big game and I hope to get some more in the next few matches," he added.

"I am training hard every day and I hope to be involved in the games coming up. I'm waiting for my chance."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
