Attacking start to the game with dangerous Memphis free kick in the first minute. United dominating play from the beginning. Minute later Mata blasts over from outside the box. Manchester playing like a home game, dominating possession and looking comfortable. Looks like Smalling is taking over handling Gomis. Clearly Blind would be no match.
The through ball from Shaw to find Rooney might have been put in the back of the net from the Rooney of yester.. wonder what would have happened had it been RvP at the end of that!!
Mata’s striking has been poor this season, he gets at least 2-3 goal scoring opportunities every game, yet to convert as one more chance goes begging. Despite being closed down, his class means, he should be at least working the keeper.
Shaw and Darmian continue to impress, solid in defending.
Smallings conceded free kick gave Shelvey an opportunity to find Gomis who with a lovely turn put the ball into Sigurdssons path only for him to curl it just wide. Seconds later a nervy clearancy by Romero, but fortunately Shelvey found the keeper. The movement of Gomis with ball at feet is brilliant as Swansea enjoy the best spell of the game after 25 min but the Swans keep inching closer this time Gomis finding the upright.
Another overhead falls for wazza but he pokes it high. The need for a solid CB and CF screeching loud!
One on one once again and Wazza.. totally out of color.
Its amazing how this game remains 0-0 at HT but there will be goals for sure at FT!
A brilliant drive by Shaw early in the half finds Mata in the far post to smash it to the roof of the net with his weaker foot!
Missed both the fucking goals conceded in the second half thanks to a tiff at the hotel with some people wanting to watch Roma Juve.
But our efforts to come from behind were left wanting as the need to have a solid CB and a CF couldn’t be emphasized any more.
