Not showing a good game, the team Louis van Gaal has failed to break the redoubts Forty
Manchester United expected visiting Newcastle with a clear desire to extend their winning streak to three matches in all competitions. The same was the opinion of most experts, despite the fact that the game the Red devils, of course, far from ideal. However, they are in the current season has shown that we can achieve positive results, not too eye pleasing fans.
And at first, we have to agree, the prospects of the owners were pretty good. They have tried to seize territorial initiative, then seriously began to put pressure on the opponent. However, this is the opponent, after waiting a certain period of time straightened out – not so completely but to defend ourselves has become more compact. The team of Louis van Gaal, in addition to permanent long strokes and canopies from both flanks, to remember nothing at all. But Jordy could even open the scoring when Mitrovic header to send the ball into the crossbar Romero.
Nothing has changed later, though after the break, the players of Manchester United have really captured total control over the situation, but, as before, without serious outskirts of the penalty area Krul. Tim from time to time, we can say, just relaxed – but only to then seriously come into play. By the time the magpies on the attack and don’t even think was possible, concentrating all its strength on defence. Defended everyone from defenders to Mitrovic and Ayoze Perez, and the latter, by the way, often it was possible to notice rolled at the feet of the Mats, the Barreto.
By that time, for the first time in a long time showed up Chicharito, who immediately was able to remind myself favourite game. Javier Hernandez fell one by one, but lost the duel Krul. It was the first such a great moment, when the Red devils could get away with it. But not the last. In the extra period jumped above all after filing with the corner Smalling nearly broke reliably playing Dutch goalkeeper guests from defeat saved the post.
0:0 – man UTD again does not pass, although van Gaal thinks, perhaps, in the last turn. It may have affected the recent clash with club Brugge, while level team not used to playing twice a week.
