It was a match that MU started with a very strong form with the attacking trio of Juan Mata – Alexis Sanchez – Romelu Lukaku. However, coach Jose Mourinho’s students did not once penetrate the opponent’s net. On the contrary, they also let Jay Rodriguez hit his sword to defeat David de Gea in the 73rd minute.
