Given the way we finished the season last year I wouldn’t dare to think nor place any bet on UK Online Bookies that we will be able to beat Chelsea 4-0 on the opening day of the Premier League season. But we did.
Glad to see Rashford and Martial in the scoresheet again and congratulations to new boy Daniel James for his debut goal. Well done lads!
We were beaten, not trashed, by a much better side.
They’ve lost Neymar and Cavani but surely they find enough time to setup accordingly for the match at Old Trafford. It was an even game until we lost two crucial members of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s attacking system though: Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial by the end of the first half.
Second half they dominated a bit more and played more effectively because our backup players just weren’t good enough. At the end, we got 1 player red carded, they got zero. They scored two, we scored zero.
It’s probably almost impossible to win the second tie in Paris later next month but we have nothing to lose anyway so maybe we have to just give it a go.
A match far from classic Manchester United which Paul Pogba manage to maximize a misplaced pass from Leicester City defender and give it to Marcus Rashford who scores the winning goal. Glad we can win ugly too under Solksjaer. 3 important points away from home!
It wasn’t surprising to see Burnley came to Old Trafford fighting to steal points. They manage to score two and defend the lead until 85th minute before Ole Gunnar Solkjaer’s Manchester United scores two back.
Not the best result but I am sure they’ve learnt a lot as we’re heading to tough February and March with matches against big teams in Champions League, FA Cup and Premier League coming.
After relatively easy run that resulted 8 wins in 8 games, there will be a fixture run of Paris Saint-Germain (Champions League), Chelsea (FA Cup) and Liverpool (Premier League) ahead in February. It’s almost like a real-life audition for the interim manager. 😀
I am not complaining. I understand that this kind of fixtures are our club were supposed to be involved in. We should be well up for it.
Ole, you want the job? Here’s the chance to show you can do it full-time:
