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: What a fantastic victory for United on Sunday beating Spurs 3-1 away. It was a slow start to the game but it sprung into life in the 33rd minute when Pogba put Cavani in to score only for VAR to rule that McTominay had fouled Son in the build up. This decision was compounded 7 mins later when Son or all people scored to put Spurs ahead. United settled in the 2nd half and some fine interpay by Fred saw Cavani's shot saved but Fred was on hand to lift it into the roof of the net. Greenwood came on for Rashford and he lifted a beautiful cross into Cavani's path and he fired a diving header past Lloris to put United ahead on 79mins. Greenwood added a third in added time to round off a brilliant performance and victory.
with Leicester losing to West Ham, United have a 7 point advantage in 2nd place, 8 over West Ham in 4th, 9 ocer Chelsea in 5th and 11 over Liverpool in 6th.
Burnley at home on Sunday is Next.
Europa League: United beat Granada 2-0 in the return leg of the quarter final and completed a 4-0 aggregrate win. Pogba, with a backward header, assisted Cavani in the 6th minute to set us on our way. Pogba got an harsh early yellow card and was involved in a tackle shortly after was a little fortunate to escape another card saw him replaced at half time as a precaution. Poor finishing from both sides prevented more goals been scored but United had the last word when Telles' cross was missed by Mata but turned into his own net by the Granada defender in the 90th minute.
United will play Roma in the semi finals with the 1st leg at home on Thursday 29 April & the 2nd leg away the following on 6 May.
