Manchester United 0 – 2 Paris Saint-Germain [Champions League]

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.

Hope we give them hell. Come on you Reds! ๐Ÿ˜€

Brilliant day at the Craven Cottage. Highlights below:

Leicester City 0 – 1 Manchester United [Video]

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!

Manchester United 2 – 2 Burnley

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.

Watch highlights below:

Tricky Fixtures Ahead for OGS’ Manchester United

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. ๐Ÿ˜€

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.

Chelsea for 5th Round FA Cup

It’s a trip to Stamford Bridge against current champion Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup. The tie to be played across the weekend of 15-18 February. Source: FA Cup website.

Our record isnโ€™t really good away from home in the capital so this could be huge. Bring on Chelsea!

Update: It is confirmed that the game will be played in 18 February.

FA Cup: Arsenal 1 – 3 Manchester United

The build up to the game has been fantastic and the team was playing to win.

Romelu Lukaku unusually – not that I’m complaining – registered 2 assists; first for ex-gunner Alexis Sanchez who opened the scoring for the 4th round FA Cup in Emirates and second for England international Jesse Lingard.

It’s 8 wins from 8 games for the caretaker Ole Gunnar Solksjaer and it is clear that his presence, and the backroom staff, aren’t just bringing the “feel good factor” as they also bring tactical nuance too. They introduced Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial while we’re leading 2-1, a decision which was effective as the frenchman scored our third goal and effectively wins us the game against the most successful team in the cup.

Roll on FA Cup 5th round!

Manchester United 2 – 1 Brighton & Hove

As expected, Manchester United beat Brighton & Hove Albion FC 2-1 at Old Trafford

There were unrelaxing moments in second half but the team did what they suppose to do: playing attractive football by attacking their opponents most of the time.

Paul Pogba scored from the spot and Marcus Rashford made another brilliant highly skillful finish. The 21 year old England international has scored in five of the six league games under Ole Gunnar Solksjaer.

Game highlights below:

Fellaini and Rojo to Leave Manchester United [Rumors]

Manchester United is open for the right offer to sell Marouane Fellaini as soon as this January transfer window [Mirror] while Marcos Rojo is reportedly also will be sold [Telegraph].

While I repeatedly say I am not a fan of the Belgian, I do have soft spot for the Argentinian.

Good luck to both players. Thank you for the memories.
