Good bye Europe, we can concentrate on the Premier League and the FA Cup. Disappointing, though.
The Starting XI
DDG – Great saves in the first half but should have done better when Coutinho scored…
Varela – He was shaky and looked tired or rather exhausted.
Smalling – No mistakes, solid at what he was supposed to do.
Blind – Some really great moments but had a couple of bad choices.
Rojo – Should have scored to make it 2-0, that would have changed the game.
Carrick – A captain’s performance after his mistakes in the first game.
Fellaini – He was found by balls but could not really head them to the teammates.
Mata – Lost a bit but a couple of good moments.
Martial – Great penalty but mostly ineffective.
Lingaard – Lively as always but his shots…
Rashford – Good runs into the box and around – his teammates should have done better.
& the subs
Valencia – Decent after a long absence.
Darmian – Great clearance from Origi but nothing more.
Schweinsteiger – Too late to have a real impact & I am worried by his beer belly.
