Louis Van Gaal still can not find solution for better performance this season. The red team from Manchester can not make one good game or couple of wins, its amazing.
For the coach, the blame goes to Murphy law, since before the match the goalkeeper David De Gea was injured and couldn’t play.
Memphis Depay opened the scoring on 38 minutes after converting Jesse Lingard’s cross, a goal which was quickly cancelled out by Pione Sisto’s deflected effort on the stroke of half-time. United looked the more likely to convert after the break, but Paul Onuachu’s strike was enough to give the hosts an advantage.
But United’s lead was short-lived, Sisto drove straight at the heart of the defence and his shot from 18 yards out took a deflection off Smalling on its way past Romero.
Onuachu made United pay late on, poking the ball away from Mata before rolling a low shot into the corner beyond Romero’s reach and securing a famous win for the Danish side.
