What a performance, what a result. Manchester United head back to Old Trafford with a first leg lead under their belt, but more importantly, they have an away goal that could prove to be the difference. The moment of the match? A sensational free-kick from Marcus Rashford.

Manchester United’s season has been summed up by the countless amounts of points dropped at Old Trafford. That continued again today, with Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils conceding late on to draw 1-1 with a resilient Swansea City side.
Manchester United dropped two careless points at the Theatre of Dreams this weekend, as Swansea City were allowed a way back into the game late on. On the whole, our performance just wasn’t good enough, and if we continue like that then there is absolutely no chance we will be in the Champions League next season.
Manchester United Football Club picked up a hard-fought point at The Etihad Stadium yesterday, with Jose Mourinho’s men defending diligently throughout. The Red Devils had to play the last portion of the game a man down, thanks to a Marouane Fellaini red card; no surprises there, then.
Manchester United Football Club piled the pressure on both Manchester City and Liverpool with a hard-fought victory away at Burnley this Sunday. The Red Devils were outstanding throughout, and more than deserved the 2-0 victory.
The Luke Shaw situation has definitely been interesting. The young left-back hasn’t been in Jose Mourinho’s good books this season, but it seems as though he is forcing his way back into proceedings. Tonight, he was handed a massive chance to impress in the Europa League.
Football is a funny old game. It wasn’t that long ago when Zlatan Ibrahimovic was being lauded as Manchester United’s new hero. However, against RSC Anderlecht it is fair to say he had an off-night in the Europa League, and everything that he tried just didn’t come off.
Days like yesterday are oh so satisfying. Manchester United were outstanding for ninety minutes, as the Red Devils put in an almost perfect performance. Chelsea just couldn’t cope with the team as a whole, but one man in particular really stood out.
Well, there you have it. Another three points away from home are in the bag as Manchester United continue to perform much better away from Old Trafford. The game was effectively won when Seb Larsson saw red for a high-footed tackle on Ander Herrera.
Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard put pen to paper on a new deal at the club earlier today, meaning he’ll be a Red Devil until at least 2021, with the option for a further year. The 24-year-old has been at the club since the age of seven, and I’m absolutely delighted for the young man.
