Welcome to the Sligo Branch of the Manchester United Supporters Club, we will update you with all the latest news from the Sligo Branch of Manchester United Supporters Club.
Premier League: The new season got off to the perfect start on Sunday with a 4-0 win at home to Chelsea. Marcus Rashford broke the deadlock from the penalty spot in the 18th min after he was fouled, Martial doubled United's lead on 66 mins, tapping home Periera'a cross and 17 seconds of play later saw Pogba's through ball perfectly dispatched from the edge of the box by Rashford. Daniel James came on for his debut and scored from a tight angle to cap off a fine win.
To be fair to Chelsea the scoreline flattered United, they hit the woodwork twice and played some good football, but their mistakes were their downfall and United made them pay.
Wolves away on Monday night is next, another tough test.
