Today at Old Trafford

Our editorial team provide regular updates from OT. Join in on the Talking Reds thread.

Friday 20 May

15:04 Some comments from Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola in advance of next weekend's Champions League final. "You can never be favourites in the final against Manchester United," he asserts. "They have sold Cristiano Ronaldo and continue to win. It is like if we sold Messi and still win." Guardiola admits he doesn't know if Sir Alex will play Wayne Rooney up front alone or with Javier Hernandez and feels United have a slight advantage because the Reds are seeking revenge for the 2009 final defeat in Rome. (AM).

14:33 Fans will be pleased to know that Old Trafford is currently being dressed with Champions 19 banners on the front of East Stand. There's also another supporter mosaic planned for Sunday's game against Blackpool, organised by the Stretford End Flags group. For a picture of the Champions 19 banners at OT, click on the Image Gallery tab on the left. (NC)

14:03 A random ex-player spot at Carrington during the reserve game. Swedish winger Jesper Blomqvist, who started the 1999 Champions League final of course, was watching from the stand in conversation with chief executive David Gill. (AM)

12:46 Full-time: United 0-1 Blackburn. Commiserations to Warren Joyce and the Reserves on exiting the Lancashire Senior Cup at Carrington. You can read Adam Marshall's report in our Reserves News section. (AB)
