This match review is so kind it will make many United fans agreed that there were a lot of positives comes out from yesterday’s derby defeat.
I don’t disagree, but positives outcome don’t matter if your supposedly best player (Pogba) isn’t turning up and our master tactician manager strangely gamble with his starting 11 (Rashford should starts).
The lads try hard, throw endless attacking creativities, and show never give up attitude against Mike Phelan’s stubborn 10 man defence Hull. At the end, our young Marcus Rashford delivered the goal at “Fergie time”. What a game.
It’s hard to pick a man of the match but Dailey Blind was again calm and composed protecting De Gea while his partner Eric Bailly show again why Mourinho signed him. Luke Shaw and Antonio Valencia were outstanding at full backs. Rooney and Ibrahimovic had a decent game as well.

It is confirmed today that we will meet Fenerbahce, Feyenoord and Zorya Luhansk (Ukraine) in the Europa League’s group stage this season.
I am not really excited for this cup which we are participating twice in past 3 seasons. First and foremost, there’s no way I can watch it from my country because no local TV would want to take the broadcast rights. Second, because it’s a “second-rate” European cup. Although, a win means a trophy. I’m a slut, so I’ll take it. 🙂
This draw is pretty special though for ex-Red’s favourite player Robin Van Persie, who helped us getting the #20 EPL medal, as he returns to both Manchester United and Feyenoord. I am sure he will be welcomed in Old Trafford by the home fans.

What a header by Ibrahimovic after a superb Wayne Rooney’s pass that creates the first home goal of the season. The Swedish legend stole the show from Paul Pogba after scoring both of the goals in a chill summer night in Manchester.
Update: The video predictably has gone from YouTube. But thankfully the official site has posted their own well-edited highlight video to promote MUTV subscription.
