Manchester United 2 – 1 Villareal

Thumbs up to Ole for shuffling the pack for this game. The defence, of course, apart from Varane entirely changed thanks to injuries and unavailable players. But the midfield duo was most striking.
United started slow and safe. The United players have to learn to play with each other.

The set play for the equalizing goal was fantastic. Throwing in great players in the last 20 minutes won us the game. De Gea is the man of the match to keep us alive to win it in Fergie time. Greenwood should not have started this game. He is out of form now, his tracking back is abysmal, and he left Dalot to the dogs.

So there was no momentum to push that team forward. Villareal was literally keeping the ball dead in defence and then looking to play on the break. I felt I was watching a FIFA game. Many players I encounter play in this manner. Try to draw players out of position and then attack on the counter. Either way, I am ecstatic with the result!
