Manchester United Legend: Beat Manchester City And Season Turns Upside Down

Ajustar Comentario Impresión

After Saturday's 3-1 win at Arsenal, victory at Old Trafford sustained United's momentum ahead of Sunday's crucial derby showdown with runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City.

"United have some great strength and pace and Shaw was a big part of that today". The Russian side lead at Old Trafford.

"We want to do what we always do, try to play our style, put them under pressure and see where it goes from there". "He sometimes needs some very hard work on the muscular area which supports (the) knee which had problems. They will be up for it and we will be up for it. Hopefully it'll be a good game".

In that game at Vicarage Road, Lindelof was once more outstanding.

United piled the pressure after the break and Akinfeev parried another fierce Rashford shot before the home side's siege finally paid dividends. When the team doesn't play well, he doesn't play so well.

The 23-year-old had struggled during preseason, looking off the pace and/or out of position on a number of occasions in the few friendlies that he played.

"They have the best goalkeeper in the world, an improving defence, and going forward against Arsenal their one-touch play was as good as anything City have produced".

Mourinho said: "He's not suspended for the Champions League. To start or to be on the bench, I cannot answer".

Guardiola has managed to completely turn around an almost disastrous campaign of last season towards a road to Premier League glory. He's unbelievable. He took a red card and that's the way it goes: you have injuries and suspensions.

But, according to a lesser known UEFA ruling, Daley Blind, who had slid off the pitch in the build up to the goal, was playing Dzagoev onside. Was United's £31 million center back a dud?

However, Lukaku and Rashford made the most of two sublime passes from Paul Pogba and Juan Mata in the space of two second-half minutes to complete the comeback and seal top spot in the group, with CSKA forced to settle for a Europa League place.

It's complicated, bear with us.


England is already assured of having two group winners in the last 16, through Manchester City and Tottenham.
