Juventus vs Manchester United Analysis

A great result for the Red Devils. Manchester United have continued with their new found form of making great comebacks. Although this is not the ideal approach,  it is definitely a morale booster for us.

Given the way United started the season, winning games in injury time is a good indication of hope for what we expect in the future.

Manchester United started off fairly well as compared to the previous games. Obviously there is was improvement there. We have continued to concede many free kicks and corner kicks, although our defence of them has greatly improved. Juventus caused a lot of threat at our goal, but thanks to the heroics of the birthday boy, we kept them at bay.

Juventus scored first through Christiano Ronaldo and I credit the lads who recovered from it and held on until the end. Manchester United equalised through Juan Mata in the 86th minute, before killing it off with an own goal from Sandro in the 89th minute.

The win takes United to 7 points in the group, two behind leaders Juventus. We need to win the next game against Young Boys and hope that Valencia doesn't win to cement a place in the knock out stages. Juventus also need one more win to qualify for the knockout stage.

It was a remarkable game for all the players. Our defence is slowly but surely becoming solid and formidable. Once again, Victor Lindelof was superb and Chris Smalling played a better game this time round. Martial was also very brilliant and his defensive work is improving lately. He was involved in winning back possession and it was through him that our free kick for the winner was earned. Marcus Rashford was unlucky to miss a one-on-one chance late in the game. Fellaini, the best plan B in European football, didn't disappoint.

The game started with a 433 approach and had the likes of Herrera standing out during the first half. Jose was spot on with his substitutions, who came in to change the game completely.

What next
This win gives us a massive morale boost as we head into the weekend to play Manchester City. I hope we can start off on a high note and avoid conceding. Rashford needs to rediscover his scoring form in order to be guaranteed the Centre Forward role. Otherwise, bring on Man City!
