After a frustrating night at Stoke, Manchester United showed an almost finished work in progress under Jose Mourinho by beating Champions League opponent Basel FC 3-0 at Old Traﬀord. It was a perfect night for David DeGea to get his 100 clean sheet mark as a red goal keeper, despite the absent of 2 main central defenders, Baily and Jones, both for suspension.
Down side of the night was when the most expensive Mourinho’s signing Paul Pogba was substituted after only 18 minutes. It is reported that his training regime contributes to the injury. However, substitute Fellaini opened the scoring after a pass from man of the match performer Ashley Young. Lukaku scored the second goal and the first night of Champions League return to Theater of Dreams closed by a goal from debutant Marcus Rashford.
The busy September period is getting more interesting. As Matic said in an interview, the Premier League is our main target. How is our odd in the competition where we have won 20 times? You can view all English Premier betting at William Hill. Even though Mourinho has never failed to win the domestic title in his second season at any of the teams he has managed – Porto, Chelsea (twice), Inter Milan and Real Madrid, I won’t underestimate Manchester City and Chelsea for the title.
Now first thing first, bring on Everton this weekend!
